Trend Watch: Embellished Updos

Get some bling in that hair.

By Eden Dawn July 30, 2012


While the term updo might conjure up images of prom night and Aqua Net, it really just means anytime you get it up off your neck. And we all know how good that feels on a hot muggy day. But just because it’s utilitarian doesn’t mean you can’t get a little jazzy with it.

From combs to jewels and everything in between, plunking something pretty in your hair is just as fun now as when we were five. Check out the runway inspiration below and flip through the slide show to find where to pick up some supplies to do the job. Or if your inner hippie desire, just string a crown of daisies and throw them on top.
