A few tease-y steps to a simple and casual updo

March 15 2012 | bijouxandbits

Megan sent me this updo tutorial and we knew it would inspire some casual, floofy, and BIG updos! This one has lots of teasing for body, but looks totally doable, perfect for a headpiece, and not at all fussy or pretentious. Plus it strikes me as a little bit retro with that beehive vibe.

Now that we're in a back-combing mood, we may as well see what's out there for wild and woolly updos! Come of these are pretty versatile too — for outdoor and woodsy or indoor and glam.

Are you going to tease your hair silly for some retro-inspired or just plain huge updos? It looks pretty damn foolproof to me.
