Updos can be the answer to all types of hair 'mares. Whether you have grubby hair (and you want to snooze in the morning), it's raining, or if you just fancy an easy hairstyle change, an updo can be the perfect solution for work, parties or down-time. Whatever the occasion, let our pick of the best celebrity hair updos inspire you.
For simple but effective updo ideas, take notes from Emma Watson, Kate Bosworth and Diane Kruger, who have been giving us a masterclass in high-impact easy updos which don’t require much time or effort.
