Gorgeous Updos For Women Over 50
An updo holds a world of possibilities. Depending on what kind of style you choose, it will project a specific mood. A loose updo with soft tendrils framing your face will make you look romantic. But a swept-up chignon or French twist will project the picture of sophistication. Voluminous braids will add a touch of elegance to your look, while big ballerina buns will add a vintage element to your outfit.
Some updos are big and intricate, while others are simple and unassuming. Depending on your mood, there is a look that will tie everything together. You can choose something as simple as a low bun pinned at the nape of your neck, or a more intricate updo that looks like it belongs in the pages of a magazine.
If you have an occasion coming up soon — whether it's a wedding or a holiday party — this list can act as inspiration for your next hair appointment. Scroll down to see which look would be the perfect pick to go with your own fashion sense. No matter which one you choose, one thing is for sure: You will feel glamorous all night long.
