For most people, the term "updo" elicits visions of prom hairstyles and wedding looks — not to mention hours spent in a chair at a salon. But updo hairstyles don't have to be formal or difficult. In fact, they can be easy to do at home and are a great way to keep your hair off the back of your neck.

Updos are remarkably versatile and can easily transition between day and night, casual and formal, and sleek and messy. Best of all, even the most amateur stylists can achieve these professional-level looks at home. For most of these styles, all you need are a few bobby pins, some product, a mirror, and a handy DIY tutorial to walk you through it step-by-step.

From braided updos to ponytail updos, milkmaid braids, space buns, and twists, these tutorials include something for every type of occasion and hair type.
