Updos are great for so many things! They keep your hair up and out of the way all day, and little "primping" is needed to keep your style looking beautiful all day. That is why they are the number one pick for weddings and prom.

Additionally, putting your hair up can make you look professional and sophisticated. Business women and those wanting a more sophisticated look often opt for these styles on a daily basis.
Glitzy accessories can really add to your style. You can take a plain hair bun from a "librarian-look" to elegant with just the addition of some hair sticks or jewels.
The main material you need for updos are bobby pins. It is best to find them in the shade of your hair color so that they are not noticeable in your hair. Some other materials that can make your hair hold up better are rubber bands, jaw clips and of course, hairspray!
Many believe that up-styles are only possible if they go to their hairstylist, but here are some great styles and step by step instructions to help you do it yourself:
