Weekend Updos: 3 Easy Hairstyles for Any Weekend Plan

Updos for any situation.

When Friday hits, don’t you just feel like throwing your hair up into a bun or ponytail? That’s the vibe we also get when we know the weekend is right around the corner. There’s no better feeling than pulling your hair up into chic weekend updos after a long week.

If you’re in the mood for versatile weekend updos, we can help in that department. We have some of our go-to hairstyle ideas that still have us feeling fresh and ready for whatever is planned for the weekend ahead. Read on for our top three:

weekend updos: octopus bun
The lazy girl bun we all love.

1. The Octopus Bun

This hairstyle took the internet by storm not too long ago but we’re still all about this style. This octopus bun works best on hair that has a bit of a crinkly texture to it—whether it be from curls, waves or a good ole bed head style. Gather your locks into this weekend updo style if you’re simply heading out for drinks with the girls, doing a bit of errands (in style of course), or kicking back at home.

weekend updos: high ponytail
Pull your long locks up for the weekend.

2. The High Ponytail

Have super long hair and want to pull it up? You can’t ever go wrong with a high ponytail. Brush through your hair with a boar bristle brush like the Ibiza Yolles Ceramic Boar Hair Brush to smoothen your strands before creating your pony. If you want a smooth ponytail throughout the entire weekend, set with a flexible hold spray like Dove Style+Care Flexible Hold Spray and secure your ends into a bun to sleep at night.

weekend updos: classic bun
Classy and prepared for any weekend festivity.

3. The Classic Bun

What’s a quick roundup of weekend updos without the humble classic bun? While you can wear any bun style, we rather stick to sleek buns since they are far more versatile than messier iterations of the look. Opt for this in case you have last minute plans that call for a formal or dressy attire. Smooth your edges and flyaways down with Bed Head by TIGI Stick and you have your bun for the weekend.
