The Classic Updo
The  most basic type of bun is twisting the hair together into a simple knot at the back of the head While this is a great everyday hairdo it can also be used as a formal hairstyle as well.

Who Wears Updo’s?

An updo is a hair style that involves arranging the hair instead of allowing it to fall freely. It can be as simple as a ponytail, but is more commonly associated with more elaborate styles intended for special occasions such as a prom or formal evening.

1. Think about what hair style you want before you go & bring Updo pictures! Stylists tend to be visual people. If you bring a picture, it will be easier to create the look you wish to have. But PLEASE, always keep in mind that most of the women you see in magazines with updos, have hair extensions or hair pieces to give them that full look. You might not have the amount of hair needed to do the updo style you’ve chosen, so ALWAYS go with a couple of ideas.

2. Don’t wash your hair the day you’re going to have an updo done. Opt just to shower and throw your hair up with a scrunchy or just rinse and don’t use shampoo. Dirty hair equals a better updo. Yes, it’s true. Not only is “dirty” hair easier to work with, it will hold a curl much longer , will be easier to tease and most important, will have a great deal of shine to it. Sacrifice washing for a day or two before, for the greater good of a great hair day!

3. Don’t put hair up to tight. This can cause headaches hours later and ruin a big day. If you feel your hair is too tight or a pin hurts, let her/him know.

4. If you don’t like something, say it. Nothing bothers stylists more than when their clients are unhappy. And believe me, we can read body language better than you can imagine! But please keep in mind that updos are a work in progress. You can usually never see how they will turn out until they are almost complete. So if it looks a little scary for awhile, bare with me.
