Updos Trends for the New Year

By Admin

The theme for hairstyles this winter is soft and feminine. Braids of various types, soft curls, and messy buns will all add a unique charm and lend a romantic feel to the season. Any of these looks can be personalized for an extra special touch with some fun accessories like flower or foliage crowns in autumn shades, or perhaps a few feathers for a more trendy look. Here are some fabulous and feminine updos to get excited about for the New Year.

Dutch Braid Updo
This style is gorgeous with any hair color but is especially striking with hair that is dyed a beautiful color with golden or caramel highlights. Hair is divided into two horizontal sections. A crown Dutch braid is plaited for the top section. Then the nape section is loosely braided and pinned into a slightly messy bun below the crown braid. Soft tendrils can be curled around the face for an even more feminine touch.

High Bun with Braided Crown
This is the perfect style for curly hair or hair with a lot of natural volume. Sections of hair are braided on each side, long enough to wrap easily around your head. The rest of your hair is then tied up into a high messy bun that allows small strands of curls to pop out here and there.

Bun with Waterfall Side Braid
This style will be beautiful on anyone but is simply stunning in lighter colored hair. Hair is braided into two loose and overlapping side waterfall braids that wrap around the head. The ends of the braids are then lifted at the back into a low messy bun. Loose wavy tendrils around the face will add a touch of romance.
