36 Examples of Elaborate Updos

From Sculptural Afro Shoots to Lion Mane Hairstyles

— December 11, 2014 — Fashion
Hairstyles can make or break a look, completely transform an individual and even inform the world a sense of who they are right off the bat, so it is only natural that some people would take the time to create these elaborate updos for special occasions. Perhaps some women decide to work these elaborate updos into their everyday routine as well, especially if their life calls for such effort.

Yet it is evident that over the last few months, people have been adopting more elaborate updos in order to add a different dimension to their overall style. As people adopt a minimalist, sporty and futuristic wardrobe, hair and makeup become a way to differentiate their look from others. Of course, these hairstyles are particularly great for parties and special events.
