Down 'Do to Updo: Day to Night Hairstyle Idea
By Kate on 6 January 2013
Get a great look for the day and then the night with this easy hairstyle transformation.
Give yourself two great new looks in the space of one day by sporting this down 'do during the day, and then switching to this fun updo at night.
Daytime Down 'Do
A great daytime look that will suit a casual day out or time in the office is a look that incorporates some natural looking waves. These waves start from the mid-lengths and finish through the ends. This is important because it leaves the root section nice and smooth so it'll be easier to get the finish for your updo later on. Use large hot rollers or a large curling wand to form the waves in your hair. Or if you have a natural wave, scrunch your hair using some curl enhancing product. The key to this look is to not have the waves look too structured, but to also stop your hair from looking boring by ensuring it has some texture and bounce.
To turn your down 'do into an updo, keep your hair part the same and pull your lengths back, ensuring that you keep some strands around your face to create a pretty frame. Next, pin your lengths at the back of your head, rolling your strands so you get the finish pictured above. This look has volume, but you can also style it more tightly if you want a sleeker finish. Cap off your look with some pretty hair pins and you'll have a brand new look to rock as your night gets underway!
