Options! Melissa gives us 10 different hairstyles you can wear at any upcoming event or if you want to put your hair away in a protective style.
I can’t forget about my girls with short to medium hair. Yall don’t have many options for styles but clip-in extensions work wonders. Clip-ins are fun and a little extra length is fun.
This updo is a little more edgier and unexpected than the rest. Imagine everyone’s surprise when they think you have just simple curls and see intricately braided hair.
At the end of the style week, straightened hair tends to get greasy and limp. Add life(and a couple extra styling days) to your hair with an updo to give it some omph.
I love any updo with some texture. When your braidout or twist out gets old, use that texture and frizziness to create something new for the week until the next wash day.
Updos are a great way to protective style your hair. Whitney shows that a style can work double time for work and play with the right style and the addition of hair accessories.
I’m going to a wedding in October and I may have to use this style. The boho vibe of the style looks effortless, casual and easy-breezy.
Who doesn’t love wearing a crown on their head? Placing braids with updos adds depth and details to the style.
Wearing buns in the same direction over a period of time stresses out hair. Switch up the bun placement and decrease the stress. Low buns still show off your features and brings a softness to them.
This one is the most intricate of all the styles. Take those old twists down and give them a refresh.
Updos are the most simple way to shut it down wherever you go; wear it as a protective style even after the event is over. What kind of updos are you planning on wearing when it gets hot??
