4 speedy holiday updos

Updos are the perf solution: they keep your hair out of your face and look super pretty. Here are our fave speedy styles for any special occasion.  
The style: Messy bun
Perf for: Curly or wavy hair
Sometimes a messy look can still be totally chic.  Gather hair into a pony at nape of your neck, on the side.  Let a couple loose strands fall into your face.  Twist into a bun, and set with bobby pins. Hit it with hairspray to finish it off.
The style: The Grecian
Perf for: Curly hair
For curly girls, the goddess look is a perfect hairstyle to tame ringlets.  Work in a curl-defining cream, then pull a one-inch section on either side of your face (above ears) to meet in the back of your head. Secure with a pretty barrette or bobby pins. Use a soft-hold hairspray that will keep curls in place, but still leaves them loose and shiny.  Straight-haired chicas can try this style with two braided sections.
The style: Looped Pony
Perf for: Straight or wavy hair
Pull all hair back into a ponytail at about the middle of your head. Secure with an elastic that matches your hair color. Create an opening right before the elastic band, loosening up your hair a bit. Loop the ponytail through the hole, which will create a twisted effect on either side. Pull hair to tighten for a super shiny style that keeps your strands out of the way.  
The style: The Frenchie
Perf for: Medium to long straight hair
Channel Audrey Hepburn by sporting an elegant French twist. Part straight hair on the side and slick it back with a small amount of gel.  Gather hair into a ponytail at the nape of your neck. Start twisting the ponytail upwards until it forms a tight right. Lift the “rope” up and tuck ends into the fold that’s created, and use bobby pins to hold it in place. Finish it off with a strong hold hairspray.
