The 25 Most Beautiful EASY Updos

The Internet is full of really gorgeous updo tutorials, but not all of them are feasible for the average woman. If your styling skills aren’t where you’d like them to be or you don’t have a lot of time, attempting complex styles may lead to frustration.

I’ve scoured the Internet and found 25 really easy updo how-tos. Not one of these updos requires French braiding, fishtail braiding, pre-setting, or precise styling. They all straddle the line between casual and fancy — able to take you from playdate to date night with ease.

My advice for updos is always the same: use lots of product (clean hair is hard to work with) and don’t over think it! There is beauty in imperfection.
