Top 10 Casual Updos

Nothing says “confidence” like rocking an updo. A voluminous topknot elevates a simple jean and t-shirt look and a sleek pony can add a chic touch to your cocktail dress. Our friends at the Daily Makeover have pulled together their favorite 10 dressed down ‘dos and letting you in on the secrets of how to achieve them at home!

Kendall Jenner

Kendall’s updo is quite chic and actually very simple to recreate. Pull hair back into a ponytail, braid the hair hanging down, and wrap it around your elastic to create a bun, and voila!

Ali Landry

We love this voluminous updo on Ali Landry. You can get the same great look by pulling hair back into a ponytail. Pull the end of the ponytail straight up, and use a brush to brush downward toward the scalp. Do this all away around the ponytail to create volume. Wrap the ponytail around the elastic and secure with bobby pins. Use a texturizing gel, like Shu Uemura Yokan Craft ($38, Shuuemuraartofhair-usa.com), to slick back any flyaways.
