First used by the Ancient
Greeks, hair buns and updos have enjoyed popularity ever since. From ballet
studios to the red carpet, up do hair styles are as widely worn today as they
have ever been. As a hair style classic, there are now many products to
help you create your perfect up do; we have listed ours together
here in one easy-to-find place! If you are looking for decorative
additions for your updo, check out our range of decorative hair pins, hair pearls and hair jewellery.
We have everything you will need to create the perfect updo;
whether you prefer to create a simple bun by twisting a ponytail and
securing it with grips or pins, or whether you prefer to use a chignon horn to help you create a sophisticated French Twist. From bun making starter kits to hair sticks and ballet style bun nets to roll-and-click bun rollers, we've got what you need.
Consider the shape of your face before you get to work on your updo.
- Round face – lengthen a round face by creating height at the top of the head and keeping hair tight at the sides.
- Long, thin face –Create width to balance a long, thin face; pull hair tight at the top of the head and leave sides soft.
- Heart-shaped face – balance out wide cheekbones with a bit of height on top.
- High forehead – minimise a high forehead with a low parting and a sweeping fringe.
