Although this season compels us to let our hair down and take in the summer breeze, we’re also relishing the various ways the common updo can be the season’s staple hairstyle. Besides its low-maintenance appeal and day-to-night versatility, it can also be a relief to have all the hair away from face and neck to show off sun-kissed skin. Moreover, gathering your hair into one messy—or not—bun is a great way to exude summer sexiness while still looking perfectly polished.
The red carpet may have been a showcase of trendy ombrés and sultry blowouts the past weeks, but amid all that, we’re still fluttering at the sight of a sophisticated updo. From Crystal Reed’s romantic updo at the Teen Choice Awards to the edgy updo Kendra Wilkinson wore at the premiere of The Watch, stars braved the season with a slew of variations that were fresh, clean and downright adventurous. Fashion Glamour pored through these star-studded events and plucked out our favorites. Click through the slideshow above to see all the inspiring updos to try now.
