A few tease-y steps to a simple and casual updo #Fashion DIY#hairstyle#headpiece#superficial snack March 15 2012 | Catherine Clark 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. Braids are always the right choice. Source: photobucket.com Classic Brigitte Bardot. Source: elle.com Love this giant beehive-inspired do. Plus that red is sex.
