The Messy Updo Hairstyle

Updo Hairstyles

Updo Hairstyles are Messy this Summer!

The hottest updos for summer aren’t really updo hairstyles at all, but messy styles or undone looks that are simply pulled up and off your neck and shoulders. The great thing about this summers messy updos, are that you can turn a more casual hairstyle into something that looks elegant and chic or messy and undone whatever the circumstances dictate . . . how cool is that? Here are some of my favorite messy updo hairstyles that any patient fashionista should be able to style easily at home:

Vanessa Hudgens Curly Summer Messy Updo Hairstyles Look

The messy updo like this one on Vanessa Hudgens of “High School Musical” is quick and easy for summer hair. If you’ve got naturally curly hair, or wavy hair, now is the time to give your flat-iron a rest. Messy updos like this one suggests working with your hair instead of fighting it.

To bring out the curl, apply a styling cream or gel throughout damp hair and then comb through with a wide tooth comb. Then, you can scrunch and twist strands into beautiful bouncy curls. Pull the front section of your hair back and pin right at the front of your crown, then pull the rest of your hair up into a ponytail. You can pin sections of your hair up and around the base of the ponytail, giving this messy updo hairstyle, great dimension.

Messy Updo Hairstyle on Jennifer Lopez

Updo Hairstyles Like Jennifer’s is Messy Yet Elegant! Jennifer Lopez, always in fashion has also jumped on the messy updo bandwagon. Her version of the messy updo hairstyle is doable for all hair types.

If you want this look, start with clean, dry hair. Section your hair into three parts: a horizontal section from temple to temple, another horizontal section from the ear to ear and then a third section with the rest. Pull each section back one at a time and secure each one with crisscrossed bobby pins. Let your shorter pieces fall out naturally because this look is very relaxed and casual.

Updo Hairstyle on Sarah Michelle Gellar

I love Sarah Michelle Gellar’s take on this summer’s updo hairstyles trend. Her version is very laid back, but the headband gives it a stylish spin. Headbands and hair accessories are hot this season, so pairing a headband with your messy summer updo hairstyle look is even hotter! This is a super easy style to pull off, simply pull your hair back into a bun at the crown of your head and slip on a headband to get this look. I recently wore this look on my way out to run errands and got so many compliments on it. What’s best is that the hairstyle took less than sixty seconds to style!

All three of these messy summer updo hairstyles reflect the time of the season and are great to try out this summer. If you’re looking for the quickest and easiest in hairstyles, I highly recommend Sarah Michelle Gellar’s look, it is the most simple to do and looks great on just about everyone.
