Updos are the ultimate glamazon hairstyle. When it comes to a formal event, special occasion or just when you are tired of wearing your hair loose, nothing beats an up hairstyle for elegance and style.
Red carpets - from fashion parties to movie premieres - are lined with super-glam celebrities wearing their hair up. Pulling the hair away from the face is the perfect way to show off a stunning make-up look, be it natural, a smokey eye or a statement bright lip.
With the autumn/winter season on our doorstep, there's never been a better time to start looking for hair ideas, and with our gorgeous red-carpet finds you'll be utterly spoilt for choice.
Lovers of a sleek and well-groomed look, should channel up hairstyles from the likes of Kate Bosworth with a slicked half-up, half-down look, or for something super-feminine, look to Alexa Chung and Emma Watson who worked braids into their updos. Or for all out glamour, see how Blake Lively and Jessica Biel work their big bouncy blow dries into an artfully styled updo.
There's also lots to choose from if you fancy trying out some retro updo styles - think beehives, milkmaid plaits and Marcel waves, plus we've even got updo hair inspiration that use hair accessories and jewels too. The perfect way to vamp up your look.
