Although updos sound like *the* easiest thing to perfect, the reality is that a lot of the dos you see on screen take some celebrity's hair stylist HOURS to create - and ain't nobody got the time or cash for that.

So to make life a little easier for those of you who are not hair experts, we have put together a collection of stunning updos you can actually do yourself. Granted you might need some practice to perfect it, (French braids are included) but you will be able to do it.

What's great about these dos is that they straddle the line between casual and oh so fancy, allowing you to style your tresses for all occasions.

Top Knot

Whether it's a glamorous top knot or a "messy" one, the top knot is the go to look when it comes to updos. It's easy to do and a great way to show off your features. Plus when we say top knots, we don't the scraped together grease-ball you rock after the gym, oh no! We mean a styled-to-perfection look that fitting for any special occasion.

Braided Updos

An loose or intricate braid or two is a great way to spice up any updo; it adds a soft romantic touch that we are completely in love with. And yes it might look fairly complicated, but it's definitely worth the practice. Every girl deserves to wear a crown, even if it's a braided one.

Chic Chignon

The chignon (don't know if we are pronouncing it right) flatters every face shape, and can be adapted from an every day touseled style to special occasions. It's feminine, classic and pretty simple to do. The key to mastering the look is simply learning to tuck your hair in, and then bobby pinning it to perfection.
