Styling techniques & Tips

Quick and Easy Updos

Need a quick, great hairstyle? It's possible to give yourself a salon-like hairstyle at home. Joelle, senior stylist at Avon Salon & Spa, describes how, step-by-step. The most important rule of the updo is to keep it simple. "Sophisticated looks are usually the least complicated," she says. Another tip: "Hair doesn't always have to be clean. Sometimes if it's styled the day after washing, it holds its shape better." Check out these quick, formal looks on Lauren, Cassandra, Nancy and Lianne. To dress them up even more, add a sparkly colorful hair ornament to coordinate with your outfit.
