Hair. A woman's crowning glory and that extra accessory that can lift an outfit from drab to fab in minutes.
Up-dos are the perfect hairstyle for winter because it's not only effortlessly chic, easy, it helps to protect your hair during winter.
The best thing about twisting and knotting your tresses into an up-do is that all you'll really need are a few pins and hairspray to catch those wisps of stray hair.
Head band chignon twist
Got short hair and bored of always wearing it the same way? Try this lovely twist for a little variation. It takes no time at all and will have you looking and feeling like a princess!
Volumize that ponytail
This is a great variation on the old-school ponytail and looks fabulous on long hair. If you want to wear this look but don't have long hair, search around for a clip-on ponytail or add some clip-in hair extensions in the middle of your head about halfway from your nape.
Braided up-do for a princess
A quick and pretty hairstyle and the plaiting adds a quirky touch to medium-length hair.
Go reverse for difference
I like this hairstyle because I think it's a unique and sleek way of pulling all your hair together neatly and is different from the standard ballerina bun or wispy topknot. Add a pretty sequined Alice-band or hair-clip for some eye-catching detail.
Gaga over hair bows
This tutorial shows you hot to recreate the hair bow a la Gaga. This style works on both short and long hair – but will have more impact on longer hair because the bow will look fuller and more pronounced.
Hair bow with a cascade
Looking for an extra-special up-do for a formal night out? Here's a look that includes the in-vogue hair bow, together with a dramatic spiral cascade of hair.
