Best Celebrity Updo Styles
A woman wanting to see the height of hair fashion only needs to look to awards shows and special events where celebrities pay thousands of dollars for a single haircut. The updo styles that dominate these affairs are true works of art and often set the standard of fashion for years to come. While most women will not be able to cough up the high price to get the same updo creations from the top name stylists, using these ambitious looks as a starting base can help a woman develop a specialized updo look for any special event.
Scarlett Johansson just may be the queen of the updo style, exhibiting many different creations over the course of each year. The reason that the actress commonly uses the updo as her special event hairstyle of choice is because of the refined elegance it brings to the occasion and the way it focuses attention on her natural beauty. Also, the hair of the actress is prone to frizz, but utilizing an updo keeps most of the frizz under control. Unlike some of the more extravagant updos to grace the red carpet, Johansson usually prefers to keep things simple, using pins and clips to keep the soft and shiny hair in place. Even though her updo style may look thrown together, a viewer can rest assured that there is much more work behind the haircut than meets the eye.
At the other end of the fashion spectrum, Nicki Minaj embodies what the updo is all about – getting fully glamorized for a special event in a way that will be remembered. For a recent MTV Video Music Awards event, the singer created a one-of-a-kind hairstyle that is best described as an ice cream cone. The bright pink and yellow colors created layers of texture as the hair piled high. Besides an extensive network of pins, the secret to this towering dessert was a series of alternating twists in the hair that helped to keep frizz to a minimum and show off a polished look to her hordes of adoring fans. The beauty of this updo is its uniqueness and its instant place in fashion history as an extremely bold fashion choice. While it may be better not to try this at home, a woman may be able to use the alternating twists concept to come out with an outrageous style of their own.

The updo may not be the best choice for a day to day hairstyle, but it certainly holds a special place in each woman's life. Every year there are multiple occasions when a woman will want to make a big splash with her appearance. These are the times when the updo should be used. By looking at current celebrity versions of the elegant hairstyle, a woman will be able to find one that will correctly match her facial shape and will certainly be noticed by other attendees at the special event. Although it may take a long time waiting at the stylist for the updo to be completed, memories of a good style will last for many years.
