If your hair is naturally straight, long, and slippery, then you know how hard it is keep an updo hairstyle in place. Below you'll find four styles that shouldn't budge, no matter how hard your locks try to escape!

Pigtails

Pigtails aren't just for kids – they were popular last year and seen again this season on the Fall/Winter 2016-2017 runways! Part hair down the middle and apply serum all over your hair, like Absolut Repair Lipidium Shine Serum to control flyaways. Make your pigtails extra special by inverting the ponytails, or adding a fun hair accessory.

Wet look low double buns

Hairstyles are seeing double this season, and the wet look is back in style! To obtain this hybrid look, part hair to the side, apply gel all over your mane like Wet Domination Extreme Splash gel by Tecni.Art from L'Oréal Professionnel and then tie your locks into two low buns. The gel should hold the style in place all day long, but you can always put in a few bobby pins for additional security!

Messy braided crown

Braids of all kinds are trending this season, but one that you can be certain will work especially well with your long hair is a messy braided crown. Purposely leave a few strands hanging; it will make the style feel relaxed, and you don't need to feel pressured for the hairstyle to look perfect!

Ballerina bun

This style works best on 2nd or 3rd day hair. The ballerina bun is very feminine, and all you need is a strong hold hairspray like Infinium Lacquer, a hair tie and a few bobby pins and you're good to go! If you find the slicked back aspect too severe of the ballerina bun, this style would look great with bangs.
