Our 5 Favorite Summer Updos
Soft-looking, chic, and pretty, our favorite hairstyles from the catwalk keep your hair off your neck and all eyes on your face.
The Polished Boho Braid
At Valentino Haute Couture, hairstylist Guido Palau draped a plaited headband across a center part and pinned it behind the ears. Then he twisted hair into a low bun held with more bobby pins and just a spritz of Redken Forceful 23 Finishing Spray ($22, redken.com) because "if it gets too product-y, the style loses its charm."
The Half Bow
To create this style at Altuzarra, Paul Hanlon prepped hair with Fekkai Full Blown Volume Styling Whip ($20, fekkai.com) and pulled it into a low, side-parted ponytail, stopping short on the last pull-through. He wrapped ends around the elastic and pinned the style in place.
Peter Gray fashioned a sideparted faux bob for Badgley Mischka, beginning by braiding a small section of hair sideways along the nape of the neck to create an anchor. He curled the rest of the hair, setting it with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong ($22, moroccanoil.com). After brushing the curls out, he rolled hair from the ends up into a wide chignon that he pinned into the braid.
The Sparkly Sweep
Oscar de la Renta's mane man, Yann Varin, shook L'Oréal Professionnel True Grip Texturizing Powder ($16.50, lpsalons.com) all over hair, pulled it into what he calls a "young and lively" chignon, secured that with bobby pins, and attached a crystal brooch with more pins.
The Blooming Bun
"Whatever you do, don't brush," says Odile Gilbert, who used her hands to sweep tousled waves up into a bun at Zac Posen. She held it in place with silk-flower bobby pins and Kérastase Laque Couture Spray ($35, kerastase-usa.com).
