Elegant Updo 3 Ways

Well, it’s officially April. No, I’m not slow, it’s just that time flies, doesn’t it?!

I don’t know about you, but I feel like April ushers in a season. Yes, spring, but more than that. It ushers in wedding/shower season. How many of you are already filling up your weekends with baby showers, wedding showers, engagement parties, & even weddings! It’s a fun, albeit expensive, season, but so joyous to celebrate with those you love.

So today I thought it would be fun to showcase one hairstyle that is easily done with three different outfits. This way you can rock the same hairstyle to a baby shower and then again to an actual wedding. Oh and it takes like 5 minutes to complete, promise.

Isn’t it pretty? It works on many lengths as well. Mine is short, but you’ll see in the video that Judy has long hair & it still looks gorgeous. Before I get to the outfits – check out the video how to. It’s definitely one you want to add to you ‘know how’ list! Oh and at the end you can answer a quick question for a chance to win some money honey!

I’m assuming you watched the video (& entered the sweepstakes!) isn’t it easy? So pretty, so simple, my kind of hairstyle. I know sometimes hairstyles can seem kind of intimidating, but this easy twist and pin is perfect for any level of hair styling abilities.


Here’s the three outfits I’m showcasing this hairstyle with:

wedding hair style 3 ways


The Garden Party Shower

floral jumper


This H&M jumper is a husband favorite and the hair is perfect with it! Since the jumper has a lot going on, it’s nice to have your hair up but still styled pretty. This look is perfect for a bridal/baby shower.

Day Wedding

flower dress

Just because you’re attending a day-time wedding doesn’t mean you can’t wear your hair nice! Here I paired the hairstyle with a pretty floral dress and it’s perfect for a day time or informal wedding. I actually think they go well together, the hairstyle & dress, don’t you? Very regal, I think.

Evening wedding

strapless dress


Part of the reason I like attending evening weddings is because you get to dress up and do your hair different than you might have otherwise. This dress is one of 2 cocktail dresses I own. *Hangs head in shame* What can I say, I just don’t go out that much! But it comes in handy when I have those nice evens to go to. Like twice a year. I just rotate dresses.

Here’s another close up of the hair. So pretty, right?! Make sure you get a chance to watch the video, you definitely won’t be sorry. It may look intricate, but seriously, so easy!

So what do you think? Do you think you could do this updo? Where would you wear this hairstyle? 

I am sure you all have some other great ideas, I want to hear them!

    I am seriously impressed…not only with the up do but also the three different looks! I love that fun green and floral jumpsuit for a wedding or baby shower. Just perfect! Watched the video too. I may have to try that sometime.

      Thanks! Yes, the updo is super easy, isn’t it? I’m definitely going to be using it again this summer!

    Some fab ideas here – I always lack in inspiration for hairstyles and would love to be able to make the perfect updo! Thanks for sharing 🙂

      Thank you! I bet you’d like this one! It’s really so easy. Thanks for taking the time to comment!

    I love updos that are easy and quick to put together! And I also wish I had more opportunities to dress up in fancy dresses–I haven’t even been to a wedding in years!

    • Natalia April 11, 2013 at 12:05 pm #

      Seriously! I wish I had more places to go too! Sometimes I’ll just wear it around for fun. Thanks for your comment!

    It is pretty! And theoretically easy, but my hair just doesn’t submit to bobby pins – they just fall straight out, even with hairspray.

    • Natalia April 11, 2013 at 1:22 pm #

      Oh man, really? That stinks! This one just pins the curls to your head, no special pinning, maybe it would work? At least it’s pretty! 🙂

  7. Jessie April 11, 2013 at 1:44 pm #

    Love the hair! So beautiful!

  8. Megan April 12, 2013 at 4:07 am #

    Wow, you are stunning! You look so amazing in all those outfits, I’m jealous.

    • Natalia April 12, 2013 at 12:44 pm #

      Thanks so much, you’re too nice! 🙂

    Loving all the looks and your hair looks gorgeous!

  11. Kelley April 14, 2013 at 12:09 pm #

    Super cute! I love that jumper! I wish I was tall enough to pull it off! All your outfits are great!

    • Natalia April 15, 2013 at 2:25 am #

      Just put on some sky-high heels! I’m like 6’5″ in this picture 🙂

    Hi Natalia 😀 This is a really fun post with lot’s of good ideas. Thanks for sharing the hair tutorial too. I haven’t taken the time to do anything to my hair like that in awhile, but it will be nice to have an idea for the next time we attend a wedding/shower etc. Have a great week. xo

    Nooo! I can’t find the video. Where might it be hiding? :]

    • Natalia August 14, 2013 at 7:03 pm #

      That’s weird, I can see it. Is your browser updated?

  15. Mireya June 3, 2014 at 1:31 pm #

    I can’t find the video :/ do you have a link? I really like this do for my wedding 🙂

    • Natalia June 4, 2014 at 11:03 am #

      I don’t know where the video is, that’s weird! I did it through a company so now that the campaign is over maybe they took the video down? But here is a link to the YouTube channel of the girl who did the tutorial originally. I am sure you will find a ton of great tutorials there! Good luck!
