The Messy Side Updo

next
12 by 2012
As a hairstylist, I’ve done a lot of wedding hair. The most frequently requested style, and also the most universally flattering, is the low side updo. And the messier the better. I am not a fan of polished, perfect updo’s. They look too “placed on”, instead of lived in! 

So here is the tutorial for a low Messy Side Updo! Perfect for any fancy occasion, or if you are just feeling fancy when you go to the grocery store. πŸ™‚

A few things to consider:
1. Hair my length or longer will work with this style. Any shorter and you may have issues with it falling out.
2. The longer the hair, the more bobby pins.
3. You must must MUST have some sort of product in your hair (hairspray is prefered) for it to hold as you are styling it. 
4. You can adjust how far to the side it is, based on each section placement.

Refer to this post to see what’s in my hair.

Thanks for another useful, stylish and simple tutorial! I get multiple complements whenever I style my own hair accordingly.
I had a question for you. How useful is sea salt spray in creating a wave in hair? Is it drying or damaging to hair with frequent use? Do you have a specific brand you recommend? The back, bottom portion of my hair has developed quite a natural wave, while the top, front of my hair remains fairly straight. A little uniformity would be nice on days I don’t want to blow dry and flat iron, etc.
Thank you for any advice!

Why do you put the bobby pin in wavy side down? Does it hold better that way or is it just a cleaner look? Is it better for your hair? That advice stood out to me so I’m curious.

Hi- I saw what you said about just twisting long hair up, but is there a trick to getting the bobby pins to hold?

1) I appreciate it when you talk about what to do when you have different textures/thickness of hair than you have.
2) I also liked it when you throw in a “don’t ever” do this. For some of us, this does not come naturally, so those obvious (to you) pointers help some of us.

My hair has recently been cut again.. And a year ago i went from blond (my whole life) to a brunette for my 30th birthday. i used to always try new and cute things to my hair but lately I’ve been bored and it’s a little frustrating. Now seeing your videos i feel excited again. Thank you so much for your blog!

I am so going to try this tomorrow! I can do nothing with my hair except straiten it and put it up in a ponytail…I bought a curling iron today, and watched your tutorial on how to curl..so after that battle…I will totally give this a try! This looks simple enough, and with 4 kids, (5, 2 1/2 and 8 1/2 month old twins) I DO NOT want mom hair..I want to look pretty without it taking an hour to acheive! Wish me luck!

Kate- I have 5 kids (13,10,7,4,& 3) and work full time as the office manager of a small private classical school that my husband and close friend started 7 years ago. (www.dominionclassical.org)
I LOVE YOUR BLOG! You have a true gift in educating us “inquiring minds” in all things fashion and beauty.
As you can imagine, I do NOT have a lot of time to devote to getting MYSELF ready. About how long does it take for you to get ready?– from the time you step out of the shower, until you are ready to walk out the door?
I love all your tutorials and how easy you make it look~ very inspirational! THANK YOU!

Kate,

Thank you so much for these easy to follow tutorials! I had a beach wedding last month and wanted something laid back and easy. I was able to do my own hair for my wedding and everyone was astonished when I told them I did it myself. Thanks for helping make my wedding day (and my wedding pictures!!) a success!

Jill

I have never been one to “do” my hair. Mostly flat iron and go. Love, love, love your blog. I tried this for a date night with my hubby and it was great. Your video was perfect especially for me a visual person. Thank you! I have some confidence now that I don’t have to have my hair the same all the time.

I did your messy side do for a wedding I was going to. It turned out beautiful!! I got so many complements (my hair looked better than the brides). Your video was easy to follow and the “do” was easy to “do” on my own hair. Can’t wait to try other styles for date night! Thanks!!!! Lisa

I found you on pinterest and LOVE your hair tutorials. Most of the hair tutorials on pinterest are for long hair or I just find pictures with no instructions. All your hair styles are super super cute, I’m so excited to try them all!

I looove your site πŸ™‚ I have longish hair that I’ve known what to do with! Your site has been pure gold for me!! I have done this hairstyle six times now and every time I do it, it turns out differently. Each time, it gets easier and looks a bit better. People always think I have gone and gotten it done professionally. Love that!!! Thanks so very much for your work with these tutorials. You are a blessing to many people!!!

I have thicker and longer hair and it helped so much when I sectioned my hair into four sections instead of three! Thanks so much for your tutorials! I plan on styling my hair like this for my upcoming bridal shower!

I absolutely love this and would like to do it for my wedding but your hair always looks quite ‘done’ before you actually start the tutorials. How do I get my hair to the starting point as it looks like you have a bit of lift and some waves and I’d like to know how to get there first!

Thanks,

Kim

Hi, found you on Pinterest of course. I love your updos! I am trying to master at least one style, although my hair is a little longer than shoulder length and very thin! I think if I piled on the product I just might get lucky!

I love this so much… I’ve tried 3x to do this… And all I see is bobby pin worl on my head!!! It’s a tad shorter than yours in this video… But I can’t see your pins!!! Argh!!! Do I need to curl or tease more ahead of time?
