Take a look at some of the classiest updo hairstyles that suit all face-types!

Updos are the new ponytails! They are easy-to-do and pretty much look good on all face types as well as hair textures. At a party, no one lady would end up wearing the same updo as the other one. Thanks to the variations, types, and styles. The only advice we have is that every time you are styling your hair in an updo, do make sure that the hair is clean and you have plenty of hairpins handy.updo-hairstyles-32

3. Banded updo (updo with headband):

For all you sassy girls who are bored of the regular updos, here is something to amp up your style statement. Get inspired by Emma Watson’s double banded updo, wear your classic winged eyeliner look and red pout this winter season. Whether it’s a long face or an oval-shaped one, from round to square, an updo with a stylish hair accessory that pushes the front hair towards the back of your head is a great way to look neat and sexy. This look can also look vintage and bridal. Sport the banded updo hairstyle with an evening gown, saree, LBD, casual outfits or the traditional ones. An updo with a headband is extremely versatile.updo-hairstyles-35
