Updos in Kissimmee
French twists, chignons, braids, and waterfall curls are just a few of the techniques used for beautiful updos. An updo, generally refers to a hairstyle that incorporates curls pinned up into a shape mostly off the neck, but also include half-up/half-down styles that can be particularly pretty with lower necklines, or when you want to show of the length of the hair, but still have it swept away from the face.
An updo usually stays best and looks particularly polished when the hair is thoroughly curled, and areas are often backcombed to add volume or secure places to pin up the hair using bobby pins.
The updo has been a popular way for women to style their hair for special occasions going back hundreds of years. While it has evolved some, the basic idea of adding curl, volume, and pinning sections into flattering and architectural shapes has stayed the same for decades.
Most beauty salons in Kissimmee offer updo services in addition to other special occasion hair styling like curls, flat ironing, and shampoo/blow dry services. Going to the salon for an updo can be a great way to feel polished and elegant on an important day—whether it is your own wedding day, as an important guest at a special event, to a cultural outing like the opera, or even for a big meeting where you want to look particularly elegant or polished.
Booking the Updo Service in Kissimmee
If you are looking for a particular style like a complicated chignon or braided updo style, or want it to look a certain way for your wedding day, we encourage you to book a trial updo service a few weeks ahead of your big event.
The trial updo will allow the hair stylist to assess your hair texture, and see how well it holds curl, how heavy or fine it is when trying to pin it up, and how much product to use to ensure the style holds, but isn’t over-sprayed or lacquered.
Your stylist may layer in products like pomade and hairspray to incorporate more texture, encouraging the updo style to stay better. Some stylist also encourage their guests to come in with hair that has not been washed for 24 hours, which can lend some grit and texture to the style as well.
This can also be a great opportunity to try out a few hair style variations, whether it is a side swept low bun, or something centered with curls cascading around the face, you will have the opportunity to see how balanced the updo looks, and play around with hair accessories, clips, pins, and veils.
Preparing for Your Updo
Consider browsing wedding magazines, and hair websites or online forums to see the latest updo looks, and get ideas for your next special occasion hair ahead of the big day.
Whether you are looking for a lot of textured curls cascading off to one side, with a braided crown, or something with a more sleek, polished chignon or bun, local Kissimmee hair stylists and bridal beauty specialists can help you create the updo style you are envisioning for your big day.
We recommend booking your trial updo two to three weeks ahead of your event, along with any other haircut or color services you’ll want done before your special occasion. During the wedding season in Florida (May through October), many Kissimmee salons can get booked up, so we recommend booking the dates of your updo trial and day-of updo or special occasion hair one to three months ahead of your event to ensure you get an appointment at the time and with the artist you want to see.
