Number 5 on the count down of the top 10 hairstyles of all time is the Updo.
Whether you are deciding on a hairstyle for an event, or want to look more professional, the Updo is very versatile and great for changing your look without cutting your hair. You can really play with Updos using many techniques from twisting to plaiting and you can make them even more glamorous with a great hair accessory.
Updos are perfect for big events and with the Academy Awards coming up we take a look at the Updos that we think will be shown on the red carpet this year:
Very popular with the younger A-List crowd, the plaited headband can add a little bit of fun to a casual updo, as shown here by Valentines Day star Anne Hathaway.
Buns are all the rage at the moment, especially the side bun (the bigger the better), very popular at the Paris Fashion week last year, modeled here by actress Jessica Alba.
Very popular in 2010, the Bouffant is set to continue its popularity at this year’s Oscars as part of many updos, as shown here by Buffy star Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Actresses with longer hair such as Fighter star Amy Adams can create the illusion of shorter hair by pinning up her locks in a curved shape, a few shorter lengths at the front completes the look.
The slicked back bun was made popular by Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City, this hairstyle has found its way onto the red carpet many times, shown here by singer Jennifer Lopez.
Inception star Marion Cotillard models the French Twist, a classic favorite updo of stars for the red carpet.
