All about formal hairstyles.
In this modern take on what appears to be a loose braid at the nape of the neck, the plait is rolled under and pinned for a formal, evening out look. Kate Rusby’s natural curly hair is accentuated with bright, platinum color, which relaxes and defines her waves for a highlighting embellishment.
Look closely and you’ll see the length of Jessica Motzkus’ style, draping down her back. Her sleek, sedu look is actually the result of what is known as a "half-do", where the top only is brought back to resemble an updo, yet the length is actually left to freefall in whatever status is desired.
Broadway star, Josefina Scaglione, shows us her version of a close to the head updo that twists around in the back and ends up in a swirly bun just along the crown area. This style is alright for her long face shape as it at least doesn’t elongate further with a lot of height on the top.

Today’s hairstyles are versatile and very accepting of just about anything goes. Here Julia Roberts demonstrates a standard mid-range bun that was easily fashioned with a stretchy hair band.
Leighton Meester looks stunning in her natural black tone as it matches her eyes and contrasts beautifully against her skin. Fashioned in a formal design, her highlights of golden brown come to life in wispy tendrils that are separated to adorn like natural curling ribbon.
This stylish updo has all the makings of a reverse half do. With hair pinned up off the neck in the back, thick tendril sections have been left out to be individually, loosely curled, then left undisturbed in this glorious look so appropriate for bare shouldered necklines.
