  • Messy braided bun updo
  • Easy textured chignon
  • Headband updo

At Spring 2015 Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris, textured updos featured heavily and we've been fawning over the many disheveled hairstyles ever since. After much careful deliberation, we've handpicked three of our favorite looks to inspire your next updo.

All you need to do is decide which one to try first!

Braided bun

Braided buns are perfect for keeping your hair under control while incorporating some extra detail into the look. Spray your roots with a volume enhancing hairspray for added height and volume, then sweep your hair back into a loose ponytail. Braid the pony, then twist and pin it into a bun shape.

Textured chignon

If you don't have time to wash your hair, this style is a life-saver. Just spritz some volumizing hairspray on your roots, then quickly massage them with your fingers to create lift. Sweep your hair back into a messy bun and pin.

Headband updo

For those of you who find the majority of updos a serious styling challenge, a headband will make everything way easier. All you need to do is scrunch in some salt spray, put a stretchy headband on, then loop pieces of hair over and under it. Start on either side of your face and work your way back toward the nape of your neck until all of your hair has been tucked into the headband. Tease a few wall pieces loose at the front to frame your face, then finish with hairspray.

What do you think? Which updo takes your fancy?
