3 Easy Updos To Try Right Now— VIDEO

I'll be honest: Updos aren't really my thing. While I'd love to rock a braided topknot or an impeccable French twist, the thought of attempting one seriously intimidates me. For this reason, I tend to rule out anything involving an updo, down-do, knot, or twist. But with summer right around the corner and endless festivities in sight (cocktail parties, music festivals, beach soirées), I have the urge to switch things up. Also, I can't bear the thought of wearing my long hair down for another New York City summer.

In collaboration with Schwarzkopf, we enlisted the help of an expert to show us three easy updos that are quick, easy, and not the least bit boring. Each look will take you fewer than five minutes to master —no third arm or ridiculously strong tricep required. In less time than it takes you to brush your teeth, we present stylish buns, modern French twists, and stylish braids.
