Up-do hairstyles for black women

| July 14, 2010 | 1 Comment

No matter the occasion, you can find fabulous up-do hairstyles for black woman. In many situations, a person might find it inconvenient to wear their hair down. This is why up-dos have become very popular in recent years. This article will feature casual up-do hairstyles for people who have either straight or curly hair.

There are many elegant ways that a person can style their hair in an up-do. However, these hairstyles are not suitable for all situations. For example, if you plan to spend a relaxing day with family and friends then you would most likely look for a more laid-back hairdo.

Some of the best-relaxed hairstyle for these situations is a ponytail or a bun. Creating a casual ponytail is very easy, and can be done weather your hair is curly of straight. If you have straight hair, it is a good idea to create a sleeker looking ponytail. However, if your hair is curly this may be hard to do. Curly hair is better suited for a ponytail that has a strategic “messy” look.

To create a casual ponytail for straight hair, you will need to brush hair back neatly, and secure with an elastic band. If you do not have bangs, you should pull out a small strand of hair, and curly it loosely around your finger. This will soften the tightly pulled back hair, and cause it to look less dramatic. Also, accent the pony with a couple of fun hairclips.

You can transform this hairstyle into a bun easily by twisting the hair and wrapping it around itself. Adding elastics that includes fake hair will give it a more eccentric look. This is a great style for people who play sports as well.

For people who have curly hair, you can easily create a messy pony by pulling hair back loosely, and securing with elastic. This hairstyle looks great when accented with a cute headband. The headband will also pull back bangs, which can sometimes look out of place with this hairdo.

Curly hair looks great when swept up into a messy bun, and this is easy to do once you have already created a messy pony. Simple use elastic and pull a few sections of the ponytail up at a time. Wrap the elastic around each time you pull up a strand of hair. There is no strategy involved in this hairstyle, and that is what makes it so easily maintainable.

The benefit of curly hair is that you can create a very messy look, and it will look terrific. When you have curly hair you do not have to worry about each individual hair being in place, and that is the beauty of this hairstyle. However, when dealing with curly hair you will want to make sure you use tangle free elastics. Otherwise, you will have a very hard time removing them from your hair.
