Hairstyle How-To: Half Moon Updo

Inspired by red carpet looks rocked by celebrities such as Angelina Jolie and Eva Longoria, this hairstyle is multi-functional and perfect for on-the-go girls. It's a sleek updo that's versatile enough to take your hair desk to date. 

I’m always on the hunt for quick and easy hairstyles to create when I’m in a hurry, and I’ve found another stylish one to share with you. Try it for an upcoming holiday party, New Year's Eve, or just about any occasion!

Step-by-step directions:

1. Put your hair in a low ponytail. Take a strand of hair from the bottom of your ponytail and wrap it around the elastic and secure it with bobby pins.

2. Take a hair donut and cut about a third out of it. It should look like a half moon shape.

3. Take the ponytail and wrap your hair around the donut, starting at the ends.

4. Roll all of the hair around the donut and place it under the base of the ponytail, spreading out the hair so it covers the shape. Secure the bun with bobby pins. Finish off with a medium hold hairspray.

Here's a Pin-able version of all the steps for you!
