Elegant formal updo can be a perfect hairstyle that can be worn for places such as a wedding. To get this hairstyle, you must start the styling with a cleanly washed hair and there is no need to get help from a hair specialist. You can create the elegant formal updo either up or down of your head depending upon your hair type. Use lot of hairspray, hair pins and few hair strands to style your hair in a perfect way to make the hairstyle look attractive.
First take the entire hair at nape of your neck and hold it in place using bobby pins. Now you must have long hair at the back of the head. Start twisting the hair to create a bun by folding it in a coiled shape and hold it in place using more bobby pins. Then take the front part of hair about one inch near your hairline and keep it separated from remaining hair. Brush your hair near the crown of the head and try covering it with sleek hair in front of the head to create an elegant ponytail. You can also create a French twist by pulling the hair back at nape of the neck and try to tuck the left hair into your twisted hair part at the back of the head. Make sure to spritz the entire hairstyle with a spray to keep the updo in place for a long time.
