Keep it modern: "This evening look began as an elegant updo, but you can modernize it by loosening up the hair and creating lots of volume on top," says Bucco-Regazzi. The key is to not try to make your hair look perfect.
How to: Split your hair into two sections, creating a part in the middle of your head, from one ear to the other. Clip the top section out of the way, then take the lower half and tease for volume. Then wrap the lower section of hair into a loose bun, using bobby pins to secure the ends. Next, take the top section of hair and spray with a generous amount of hairspray before backcombing your roots at the crown. This will give you a modern beehive effect. Secure the pouf with bobby pins before tying the top section into a ponytail. On the last loop, don't pull the ends through the elastic. Lastly, gently tug the looped pony, so that it hangs over the lower bun.
