The urge to just grab a handful of hair and twist it into what hopefully resembles a bun gets realer whenever summer rolls around, even though it probably isn’t a pretty sight to look at (nor is it a healthy habit to keep for the sake of our tresses). As the temperature rises, our desire to join #TeamShortHair also escalates. On the other hand, many long-haired folks just opt to go for the more temporary route of donning updos.
Apart from it being a fuss-free way to keep your locks from sticking to your skin on a hot summer day, it also lets you keep the length if you’re not ready to let go of it just yet. Not to mention, there are a variety of ways to get creative with an updo! If you’re looking for pegs, it’s always a safe bet to look to the stars for some inspo.
Here are a few celeb-inspired updos to try for summer:
1. Low ponytail with face-framing tendrils
Nothing quite like a messy updo like Barbie Imperial's to bring out laid-back vibes. Add face-framing tendrils to the equation for more dimension.
2. Messy space buns
Feeling a little playful? Recreate Heaven Peralejo's messy space buns with wispy micro bangs for when you're feeling a little extra.
3. High ponytail
Alexa Ilacad's sleek high ponytail is both presko and classy. It's also versatile enough to work for those with medium to long hair.
4. Middle-part high ponytail
Speaking of high ponytails, you can also opt to part your hair in the middle like Kyline Alcantara for a more structured look.
5. Top bun
What's a list of updo hairstyles without the classic top bun? Liza Soberano's classic knot bun is a breezy but classy style to try for updo enthusiasts.
6. Sleek side-part ponytail
You can always rely on Nadine to serve, especially when it comes to hairstyles. A low side-part ponytail like hers is a sleek 'do with a side of retro.
7. Half-up ponytail
If you don't want to commit to a full-on updo, Sue Ramirez's half-up ponytail might be just be the chicest option to keep enough volume away from your face and neck area.
8. Messy side braid
Throw it back to the good old high school days by sporting a cute side braid like Claudia Barretto!
Whoever said pigtails are for kids only is missing out on a fun, fuss-free, and celeb-favorite updo. Like Loisa Andalio, leave out thin strips of hair for a face-framing effect and you're good to go.
