Let’s talk about its majesty – The Formal Updo. It’s been around forever in many forms complimenting everything from power suits to spectacular gowns. Although there are many fresh takes on the updo, there are some elements that make the formal one different than the others. First of all, to keep things formal you have to stay away from messy updos. They look gorgeous, but sometimes your ensemble requires hairstyle with a more serious tone. Let’s take weddings for example. There are ultra-elegant gowns that would blend seamlessly with a formal updo. Any similar event is in need of a sleeked elegant updo and celebs are here to serve as inspiration. After all, their schedules are full of glamorous evens.
If you want to revive the vintage glamour go for something like Elsa Hosk’s voluminous updo. The model’s hair was slicked back to accent her beautiful features. The black velvet band is the cherry on top. This hairstyle looks even more enchanting when paired with a classic cat eyeliner.
If you want to embrace your inner hopeless romantic, do it through your hairstyle. Elle Fanning often wears her hair in charming updos that enrich the beauty of her gowns of choice. The braided updo we have in our gallery looks insanely romantic and perfect if you want something more than an ordinary slicked formal hairstyle.
One of the best inspirations for formal updo hairstyles is Kate Middleton. The Duchess of Cambridge has a lot of formal events on her schedule. Kate is a perfect example that formal updos are versatile hairstyles. She keeps her updos mostly low which happens to be one of the most elegant ways to wear your hair. You can never go wrong with a low bun on a formal event. Even a simple twist will do the job. This hairstyle is also perfect for everyday wearing at the office.
The Oscars, the Met Gala and different type of awards events are always the best place to look for inspiration on a formal updo. Almost every red carpet event is followed by a sleek updo. You don’t have to go through the internet and waste your precious time. We have prepared a gallery with the best celebrity formal updo hairstyles for you. All you have to do is pin the picture and show it to your hairdresser. You might even be able to do some of these by yourself. Flip through these gorgeous looks and enjoy.
Let’s all take a moment and appreciate it’s majesty: The Topknot. Out of all hairstyles, this is the one that has an important spot both on the red carpet and the gym. We can’t think of another hairstyle as versatile as the topknot. Just think how many times a topknot has saved your day. There isn’t a better way to end a bad hair day than a hair tie and bobby pins ready for action. Whether you want a sleeker look or a messy bun, you can get ready in minutes.
Before we move on to the more intricate versions of topknot hairstyles, we have a tip on how to achieve a red-carpet-like topknot in just minutes. First get your hair in a regular pony. Before you tie your hair for the last time with the hair tie, form a tiny bun (don’t go all the way), but leave most of your hair out. You need to make half-bun and half-pony situation to be able to proceed. Wrap the hair that hangs from the tiny bun around it and pin it with as much bobby pins as you need to make it stay in place. Use more bobby pins to calm any hair that isn’t cooperating with you and there you have it! This hack always gives the same awesome results. This type of sleek topknot is perfect for both formal and casual events.
If you want to upgrade your regular topknot, turn to celebs for inspiration. You can experiment with different hair tying techniques to spice up your topknot. Sometimes you need to make sure that your hair is long enough. Some topknot styles require a certain hair length to look good. Another way to go is braided topknots. You can braid the knot or add intricate braids on the sides. Jennifer Morrison’s, Sarah Hyland’s, and Katy Perry’s braided topknots are perfect examples of different ways to include braids in this hairstyle.
For the ladies that have bangs, Kendall Jenner set the standards for the perfect glamorous updo. The young model’s topknot is on the bolder side and is a perfect addition to ensembles that follow similar aesthetic. Elle Fanning topknot, on the other hand, is femininity at its peak. The young star accessorized her topknot with intricate floral accessories. If you have a glamorous event on your schedule Elle Fanning’s topknot is the perfect hairstyle to flaunt.
From Joan Smalls’s sky-high twisted updo to Katy Perry’s enormous braided do take a look at the best celebrity topknot hairstyles straight off the red carpet.

1. The Amy Adams Loose Retro Updo
Back in February 2015 Amy Adams was spotted at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party wearing one of the easiest, yet most elegant and definitely timeless retro hairdos ever. That’s a classic loose updo with a side-parted finger wave on the front. It almost looks like a faux bob and may be the best option for those of you, who would really like to wear a medium-length asymmetrical bob but are too afraid to actually have the hair cut. If you are into the Roaring Twenties style, you should try to complete this hairstyle with an appropriate headband, as if you were in a F.S. Fitzgerald novel.
2. The Emmy Rossum Finger-Wave Retro Updo
You may consider this hairstyle as the natural evolution of the previous one. And you may also consider using a lot of hair styling gel to keep your hair in place, but you definitely won’t regret the result. This is the Roaring Twenties elegant hairdo par excellence, and it’s particularly a perfect hairdo, if you have short hair (or even a pixie cut). It features some sophisticated side-swept finger waves, which basically elevate the glam factor to the moon and beyond. Such a hairstyle is basically meant to be worn with a pair of dangling earrings or a jeweled pin on one side.
3. The Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Rolled Retro Updo
A few days ago model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was spotted wearing a super chic rolled updo while attending Variety’s Power of Women luncheon, proving once again her vintage style skills. Rolls and twists were very common in the previous decades (especially in the Fifties and Sixties), and are the perfect way to keep your hair off your face. This type of hairdo requires at least a few minutes to spend in front of the mirror, and it’s probably not the best choice if you are in a hurry. However, if you have enough time (and patience) to spend on it, we guarantee you that its result will blow your (and anyone else’s) mind. At the same time, if you lack styling skills, you may want to consider the help of an elasticized headband, which you’ll just have to tuck your hair around. Do not forget some bobby pins to make the hair sit firmly around your head.
4. The Busy Philipps Textured Retro-Glam Updo
This finger wave formal updo is basically perfect for any type of hair, and it’s particularly an amazing look if you are trying to grow out your bangs. If you have short hair, you’ll just need to ruffle your hair with the help of some hairspray and a few bobby pins, just to make sure this messy hair effect won’t end up in a complete disaster. On the other hand, if you have medium-length hair, you could complete the look with a loose twisted bun, which is also the best bad hair day savior.
5. The Ulyana Sergeenko Finger-Wave Retro Updo
Here you have another finger-wave retro updo that will look amazing at any formal event. It’s another ‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚àö‚â§I am really trying to grow out my bangs’ look, as the shorter front flyaways will perfectly blend into the rest of the longer hair. You could also follow in Ulyana’s footsteps and opt for an all-natural makeup look, which is actually pretty hot this year.
6. The Jessica Stam Twisted Retro Updo
That’s probably the most sensual updo you will ever experience. You just need tons of bobby pins, a lot of patience and maybe some hairspray if your hair tends to get frizzy. Proceed creating a soft side parting, which you’ll have to firmly fix at the height of your ear. Then softly twist the side sections of your hair completing the look with a tight bun. You could then pair this look with a simple cat-eye makeup and a dashing (hot) red lipstick. You could also try finishing off the look with a high shine hairspray.
7. The La La Anthony Side-Swept Updo
This updo is the side-bun version of the previous look (without the side twists), and may be more appealing to those who don’t particularly like wearing hair gel. It’s definitely one of the most romantic retro updo hairstyles you’ll ever experience, and it doesn’t even require particular styling skills. Being quite a versatile ‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚àö‚â§do, you can wear it both during the day and for a night out. At the same time, it looks perfect with both strong and au naturel makeup looks.
8. The Tyra Banks Flapper-Style Finger-Wave Updo
Is Tyra Banks ever going to stop looking so good in basically any type of hairstyle? If there’s in fact someone who can totally master her hairstyling skills, that’s indeed America’s Next Top Model’s queen, Tyra Banks. Here we can see her rocking a classic Twenties inspired finger-wave updo, which definitely requires some time and patience for styling. Although using a curling iron is undoubtedly the easiest solution to achieve the look, you could also try the old good method: the process involves pinching small section of hair between the fingers, combing subsequently the sections in alternating directions until the famous shape is obtained. Of course, you’ll need tons of hair spray to make the updo stay in place. This method works best for medium-length hair, and it’s absolutely perfect with dramatic smokey eye makeup.
9. The Taylor Swift Pinned Up Ringlets
If what you are looking for is a more casual, natural and easy-to-style retro hairstyle, Taylor Swift’s pinned up ringlets might be the best option for you. This updo is designed to work best for naturally curly or wavy hair, and it’s perfect if you want to try a new hairstyle without stressing your hair. The curls that cascade down on the side(s) will instantly give you the perfect Taylor Swift boho-chic allure, which is absolutely perfect for a night out with your girl gang. You could finish off this ‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚àö‚â§do with small flowers for a more hippie feel or with dramatic makeup for a more glam rock style.
10. The Blake Lively Side-Swept Old Hollywood ‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚àö‚â§Do
Who says you can’t go retro with long wavy hair? During last year’s Met Gala, actress Blake Lively showed a sensual side-swept half-up hairstyle, which takes no more than 5-10 minutes to achieve.
To get this look you just need to create a deep side part, curl gently your hair and twist a portion of your hair around your head, almost creating a faux side shave. You can wear this hairstyle at basically any occasion, and you can have fun matching it with always different makeup looks.

We all love the classic beautiful ponytail hairstyles. They’ve got a certain charm to them, are easy to pull off and you can wear a ponytail in a variety of ways. It appears that for the spring and summer 2015 shows, the runways have been full of trendy ponytails, either with a center or a side part, just as popular with the designers as the 2015 boho wavy hairstyles rocking this coming year’s catwalks. Which of these spring/ summer 2015 trendy ponytail hairstyles would you pick for yourself?
1. Roland Mouret Looped Ponytail
This is a chic and simple design using a low ponytail from a sleek center part on straight hair, accompanied with a matte lip stain fading from the center out.
2. Vionnet Sleek High Ponytail
High ponytails were all the rage at the Vionnet runway show, pulled back in a sleek straight design, while the face was left bare for the most part; simply a breath of fresh air.
3. Damir Dama Wet-Look Ponytail
Athletic looks stood out at the Damir Dama show with sleek, wet ponytails and faces clear of most makeup other than strategic highlights to bring out the natural features of the models.
4. Hood by Air High Ponytail With a Headband
It seems a little on the strange side but this unconventional look is perfectly in line with what’s expected to be seen over the next year. This includes bleached lashes, high ponytails and colored lenses.
5. Tsumori Chisato Retro Ponytail
Some designers like mixing modern with vintage styles, like this retro wave ponytail at the Tsumori Chisato show where the model also had vibrant eggplant shadow boldly coloring her eyes.
6. Barbara Casasola Bubble Ponytail
Bubble ponytails are fun and this spring it appears that they are very much in style. Athletic looks with models sporting semi-wet ponytails alongside their dewy looks that remind us of ourselves after having been playing tennis for a while are all the rage right now.

7. Holly Futton Futuristic Ponytail
Something looks rather futuristic about this look. We have already seen the dewy, semi-wet or wet looks as very much part of the runways during the spring and summer seasons, but the little retro backcomb on the crown is rather interesting, particularly when the rest of the hair is in a deep side part and slicked back into a straight ponytail starting from ear length.
8. Oscar de la Renta Sleek Ponytail
Stunning and sleek, the beautiful professional styles are pulled back in a mid-height ponytail with the elastic bands hidden under a strand of the lovely mane wrapped tightly around the base. This is a sexy style that looks amazing with drop earrings and brings out the features of the woman wearing it.
9. Giles Low Ponytail With V-Shaped Parting
If you want to add character to a messy long ponytail, use two black thin elastic bands. First, pull back the hair at the crown, giving it a shape, such as a triangle or a square, and tie that before gathering the rest and securing with a second elastic band. Leave a few strands framing the face while it’s not necessary to slick back the baby hairs and slight frizz at the crown either. The added texture makes for a perfectly casual but uniquely creative style. Another interesting style seen on Giles was the low ponytail with the V-shaped parting at the crown, the looser sides and gorgeous eyeshadow effects on the face.
10. Gucci Center-Part Low Ponytail
Gucci had models appearing with long, straight but slightly textured hairstyles that sported low ponytails in white elastic bands to blend with the hair colors of the models. This is perfectly casual, not needing a full brushing and keeps the hair out of the eyes so as to show off one’s features better. The line also included darker looks with radiant glows to the skin and eyes lined with shades of chocolate, taupe and gold. Furthermore, the ponytails seen at this point were pulled back by hand instead of a brush in an effort to add a bit of natural texture to the look.
11. J. Mendel Slick Mid-Height Ponytail
A sleek ponytail tied with a thicker black elastic band on the same height as the ears is a great way to walk out that door looking prepared to face the world. You look organized, put-together and perfectly beautiful; though you might want to make sure your crown is full enough to take on this look.
12. Stella McCartney Crimped Ponytail
If you thought ponytails couldn’t be styled up when tied low at the nape, you really thought wrong. At the Stella McCartney show, we saw some gorgeous low long ponytails that were styled with perfectly crimped tresses. Starting from the roots, random bits of hair were crimped at different heights to achieve this lovely effect. Other models had a few long strands crimped from root to end to liven up the tails.

13. Jason Wu Voluminous Low Ponytail
Slightly off center or side-parts, low ponytails and added volume were staples with Jason Wu. The makeup kept to a bare minimum, the focus was on the eyes as well as the lovely hair that had been pulled back in a textured simple design. The ends can be flipped in and out to add character to the look, while leaving the hair loose a little before the tie adds overall volume despite the lack of it at the crown. Soft waves add to the clean and lush feel of things.
14. Ralph Lauren Straight Long Ponytail
Straight long hair in a blunt cut, with a deep side part and a strand wrapped around the elastic band holding together the low ponytail makes for a lovely hairstyle, no matter the season. Add funky drop earrings to the mix and you are ready to go. Highlights and lowlights in the hair are always a good plus if they match your natural color and add depth to the overall look.
15. Cushnie et Ochs Segmented Ponytail
Think Cleopatra and Egyptian Pharaoh Queens with this look as you have segmented ponytails with a color differed, pulled back in a sleek look that poofs at the base and then drops strain in a blunt cut. Perfectly defined cat eyes also add to the allure of the look that we may actually not see off the red carpet but that which no less intrigues us.
16. Pamella Roland Ponytail With a Scrunchie
It appears that the simple elastic bands have been replaced with the ‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚àö‚â§70s and ‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚àö‚â§80s style scrunchies, which are by far less strenuous on the hair strands but also more noticeable. Adding a touch of dusty pink to the look, it appears that Pamella Roland has matched eyeshadow colors to hair scrunchies colors.
17. Giambattista Valli Bedhead Low Ponytail
The hair texture of a straightened curly mane is perfect and Giambatta Valli maximized the allure of the center-parted long ponytail by also adding a radiance to the skin of his models, with glossy sheens on lips and highlights on cheekbones and lids. It’s simply too lovely and the pulled back hair brings out the natural beauty of one’s features. The low ponytails on this runway were styled in a way that looked like the models just stepped out of bed as well.
18. Prada Ponytail With Flyaways
Pretty hair snips around the faces of models to create flyaway baby hairs were seen on Prada, which makes us feel so much better about our little strands framing our faces as well. We can mist them the same way and have them stick to skin, while the rest of the hair can be tied in a low ponytail and coated with a touch of oil for a greasier finish. Second and third day hair appears to be in style so no need to shampoo as constantly these days.
19. Fendi Effortless Undone Ponytail
Gorgeous thick blue liner on eyes with thickly coated long black lashes look perfect with the hair pulled back in a low ponytail with lots of loose layers falling around the face. The flyaway pieces of hair can be left just so and need no smoothing out as Fendi’s models rock the simple yet elegant look on stage. During the show, the ponytail hairstyle was also finished off with a lotus hair accessory fitted with a crocodile tail design hanging over the hair.
20. Donna Karan Rope Braided Ponytail
A ponytail can also have braids and this one is no exception. Woven in with extensions, Donna Karan models sported fiercely attractive chunky, rope-like ponytails fastened by an elastic band. This look is purely Lara Croft for us and certain the low start and the long look leave us mesmerized as we follow each woven link down.
21. Alexander Wang Wavy Ponytail
Think sleek leading into natural waves when it comes to Alexander Wang’s ponytails! The sporty looks were complimented with gelled roots for a more streamlined effect, while the hair was fully pulled back from the face. Of course, if you are going sporty on the hair, you need to glam up the makeup and that’s where the clever contouring and metallic shadows on the eyes come in.
22. Prabal Gurung Sporty Chic Ponytail
The sporty look continued with Prabal Gurung, wherein the minimal makeup was really brought out by having the hair pulled back into a low, wavy ponytail, the long lengths looking fantastic on the runway.
