Come hail, rain or shine, our hair seems to be at the receiving end of it all! With the seasons changing and a calendar full of social events, we thought it’d be best to go all out with fancy yet easy updos. Here are our 10 pro hair tutorials that will have you looking stylish this festive season.
This updo is a little ode to Star Wars and can be done with minimal products. These messy buns will be even easier to create if you have slightly thick or curly hair. Heading to a music festival soon? We suggest skipping the typical flower crown and trying this instead. Use a little gel to set those buns rather than going full ham on the hairspray.
POPxo recommends: Schwarzkopf Osis Mess Up Matte Paste (Rs 850) to really play up the look.
Rocker girls everywhere are going to scream out for this style. The faux hawk may not be for everyone but with a little practice, it could quickly become a look that you keep going back to. It’s best to do this on freshly washed hair as you don’t want a whole lot of product weighing your hair down. Also, a good root-lifting mousse will add that extra edge.
POPxo recommends: Wella Professionals EIMI Root Shoot Precise Root Mousse (Rs 900) for more volume and lift.

Whether you’re a romantic, bohemian or high fashion kind of gal, a crown braid is something you can rock. This is also a style that you can do on 2nd or 3rd-day hair. Using some dry shampoo will give this updo more hold and have your scalp feeling fresh.

This quick and gorgeous hairstyle will have everyone thinking you’ve spent hours in front of the mirror.

A strong hairspray will hold any flyaways down and keep this updo looking perfect all night long.

POPxo recommends: Garnier Ultra Blends Royal Jelly & Lavender Shampoo (Rs 336) for divine smelling hair.
If you’re a true lover of the top knot and find yourself going for it again and again, here is a simple way to take it a level up. This might take some getting used to but once you’re good with French braiding this style is easy to do. Depending on your haircut you will need some hairspray to keep all the strands intact throughout the day.

The wet look has definitely made a comeback ever since Kim Kardashian walked the red carpet with her drenched slicked back hair. It works best if you have short or shoulder length hair, but you could also put your hair into a bun and slick it all back to get this look.
POPxo recommends: Gatsby Water Gloss Soft Hair Gel (Rs 120) for that ultimate 90s wet look.
Who didn’t want to be a prima ballerina when they were young? Luckily this bun is easier to achieve than the actual dance.

However, a little texture spray can also help add more definition and volume for those who have fine hair.
POPxo recommends: Osmo Matt Salt Spray (Rs 790) for extra hold and texture.
If those GOT braided hairstyles are still on your mind you will love these pull through braided pigtails. Unfortunately, this style is best suited for long hair or those of you who don’t leave the house without extensions.
