Long Hair Hairstyles: 12 Updos To Try

Got long hair? Lucky you. There's a whole list of updos you can try out, without having to rely on a handful of pins and clips to keep the style in place.


Whether you're experimenting with ballerina buns or top knots, these looks are wearable for any occasion and best of all, they're easy-to-do.

One hair trend that isn't going anywhere is the crown braid. A favourite with Hollywood stars Rashida Jones and Kate Bosworth, it's always pretty, practical and once you've mastered this plait, it will be your go-to updo for every event (it's a particularly good one for weddings.)

Ponytails aren't to be underestimated, either. A high, scraped-back style is simple and chic but for something a little bit different, look to Marion Cotillard's sleek style from the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival.
