28 Creative Updos

Eccentric Hairstyles, from Upswept Couture Looks to Egyptian Buns

— August 20, 2009 — Fashion
As this cluster of eccentric hairstyles proves, there are limitless ways to put together creative updos. While this gallery features some really outrageous looks that wouldn’t be suitable for anywhere but costume parties or runways of couture shows, all can aid in the inspiration of more mainstream looks. The Egyptian cone hairstyle, for example, could help bring back the crimped hair that was popular in the 90s, or retro rocker full bangs that are also coming back into fashion. The creative updos featured here have endless inspiration potential—check them out!
