30 Easy and Stylish Casual Updos for Long Hair

Casual updos for long hair are a must-learn skill. Summertime can be brutal for long hair, with sun and water damage paired with the overall discomfort of lugging around a full head of hair. Fortunately, there are plenty of casual updos that are fun to experiment with and are sure to look good on the beach, at a summer concert or even at the office.

Many people assume an updo is designed to be prim and proper, with an overall dressy look. However, your style can have the classic look of an updo without giving off the feel that you’re heading to your school’s semi-formal dance. This `do manages to be both classy and casual with a hint of simplicity.
