Elevate Your Updo

Elevate Your Updo

We all know the feeling – wash day isn’t due, but you cannot possibly get away with wearing your hair down for another day. Updo to the rescue! Tying your hair up doesn’t have to be dull, but an opportunity to keep your hair out of your face in a chic, sleek style. There are many ways to enhance an updo from the traditional ponytail, flattering your facial features and adding extra interest to your look. In this blog post, we’ll explore a few how to’s.

Updo styles can range in versatility from buns and braids to ponytails and plaits. Luckily, you do not have to be a professional stylist to switch up your look with ease. Here at Foxy Locks, we have the perfect tools for the job. Prior to styling, we recommend adding a few drops of our luxury gold oil onto your locks. This will help to nourish and moisturize your scalp and hair shaft whilst tied up. Amongst our collection, you will find top of the range detanglers for brushing out your locks gently, preventing breakage. Finally, finish your style with our Hair Perfume & Shine spray. Turn heads with the magnificent scent of Amberwood, Saffron and Vanilla.

Luxury Remy clip-in ponytail hair extensions are the secret weapon for adding instant volume, length, and glamour to your updo. Made from the highest quality human hair, our extensions blend seamlessly with your natural hair, for a flawless finished look. Whether you’re attending a formal event, a romantic dinner, or elevating your everyday style, ponytail extensions are the go-to solution for anyone in a time crunch.

Consider adding soft curls to your updo style. For extra bounce or a feminine touch, curls also help to blend your natural hair with the ponytail extensions. Our Gold Curling Wand has a 32mm barrel, perfect for Hollywood waves. Whilst curling isn’t a mandatory step, it can help to tie the full look together. Alternatively, accessorize your updo with a hair bow. Turn a classic look into a glamorous statement with the addition of a luxury velvet bow for a pretty, balletcore aesthetic.

Ensure a perfect colour match between your natural hair ponytail and your clip in extension for the best updo outcome.

The chignon is a timeless updo that exudes sophistication. By incorporating a clip-in ponytail extension, you can add extra volume and length to your bun, making it more pronounced and elegant. Start by tying your natural hair in a ponytail at your desired height. This can be anywhere from the nape for a sleek, low style, or at the crown, for more height and drama. Attach your clip in ponytail extension if using one. Then, twist and wrap the hair around the base. Secure in place with grips. Spritz with hair spray to hold in place. Experiment with pulling a few face framing strands from the front.

For a sleek, high ponytail look, begin by spritzing your hair with water. Using a small amount of gel on your hands, disperse this evenly through damp locks. With a soft bristle brush, gather your hair into a ponytail at the crown of your head. Ensure there are no bumps for a smooth finish. Attach your ponytail extension, wrapping a section of hair around the base to disguise the elastic. Straighten the ends of your natural hair and the extension together for a seamless blend, and the illusion of longer, fuller hair.

These versatile accessories and care products help you to experiment with different looks without committing to a permanent change. You can also transform the normality of everyday updos into red carpet worthy hairstyles. Get creative, and tag us on socials if you try any of these tips.
