The red carpet is always a source of inspiration, from the elaborate dresses at Cannes to the fabulous hairstyles of the Met Gala. Here’s Helena Mattsson of Iron Man 2 fame with one of the favorite updo hairstyles, the low messy bun.
From the front, this updo features the flattering on everyone combination of a side part and swept across bangs. Worn with a strapless dress, bold earrings and formal makeup are a must. Just check out that vermillion lip color.
Here’s where all the action is. Behind the side part, there is a touch of volume at the crown. The tousled bun is worn over to one side with a few loose curls. This is the perfect updo for any occasion from prom to a wedding. Hair accessories could be added in the form of a tiara or a few pins embedded in the bun.
