Updo Hairstyles at CMT Music Awards

Updo Hairstyles Taylor Swift

Updo hairstyles like Taylor Swift quick and easy!

Updo hairstyles like Taylor Swift’s was smashing for this years CMT Music Awards show. She stayed true to her curly hairstyle with her side swept updo hairstyle. Her side swept updo hairstyle is easy to copy, especially if you have curly hair!

If your hair needs some help curling, you’ll want to first curl your hair all over with a small barrel curling iron. This hairstyle is so simple to do, just gather all your curly hair into a low side ponytail and secure with an elastic hair band, leaving a few strands out toward the front. Then simply pin-up large sections of your hair up into the base of your ponytail.

My secret hairdresser trick is to criss-cross two bobby pins to keep the hair more secure in its place. Take the front strands of hair you left out and twist or twirl them toward the back of your hair and secure those with crisscrossed bobby pins too.

If you feel you need a hairspray to keep your look lasting through the night, I’d suggest one like Matrix Color Smart Gloss and Guard Hairspray.  This hairspray will help guard your hair against humidity (a plus for girls with curls) and it  gives updo hairstyles added shine, which Taylor Swift could use a little more of in my opinion.

Julianne-Hough in a Casual Prom Updo Hairstyle
Updo hairstyles like Julianne Hough’s – casual and relaxed!

Julianne Hough has gone country and so can you with hot updo hairstyles like this. I love this teased blonde hairstyle because it shows off Julianne’s country side, but the casual way the back is pulled away from her face gives this look a much more relaxed vibe.

Get this hairstyle by using hot rollers to first curl your hair. Remove hair from hot rollers after they’ve completely cooled and then tease hair in small sections working from the back. Smooth the top strands of hair with a soft bristled brush and then gather hair into a soft ponytail in the back of your head.

Secure the ponytail with a smooth elastic and then you can grab small sections and bend them under and over, creating a bun-like appearance like Julianne’s, or you can simply leave the ponytail as is for a less formal look. Allow strands of hair to fall around your face and then spray the entire style with a hard hold hairspray. Big Sexy Hair Spray and Play Harder Hairspray, is perfect to hold country girl updo hairstyles like this one.

Updo Hairstyles Jennifer Nettles
Updo hairstyles like Jennifer Nettles – Pompadour Texas big hair!

Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles, showed us what stylish, pompadour, updo hairstyles look like! This hairstyle gives a fun new look to the typical ‘Texas big hair’ look.

To create twisted updo hairstyles like this one, leave a good amount of hair out in front and pull the rest of your hair straight back into a ponytail that reaches the crown of your head.

I can’t quite tell from her pictures if she has a ponytail or messy bun, but I prefer a ponytail for this look.  Next, curl the hair that you left out in front with a medium barrel curling iron and keep it in a curled position until cooled. Then, backcomb the base of your hair and pull hair toward the back of your head.

Make sure not to pull your hair to tight, you want this section to be full of body and volume. If your hair is short enough, you may be able to get away with just spraying this section with Big Sexy Hair Spray and Play Harder Hairspray, but if your hair is on the longer side, you’ll have to secure the ends with bobby pins. Either way, spray that piece into place with additional hairspray.
