Updos are the best choice for any formal occasion, be that your big day or birthday party. Since it is one of the most important days of your life you should do everything to have those princess feelings. Formal updos involve various thick and thin braids and loose strands. However, if you want to have a flawless look, consider your hair color too since it is one of the most important details that enhance the overall appearance. Here I have selected some formal updo hairstyles for 2017 to provide you with some inspiration. Braided Updo
We know- it’s just irresistible, right? This particular side braided updo is neat on the top, while there are some loose braids on the bottom. The updo has an incredible braid that upgrades the look. However, the color is also eye popping since it is a smooth milk chocolate brown combined with biscuit brown and a few vanilla highlights. Chocolate Cherry Braid
Only a good color can provide with dimension like this. The sable walnut and chocolate shades have been perfectly melted into each other. However braids have always been an excellent choice for formal styles, since they provide an elegant look, particularly multiple braids, like you see here. It is a great hairdo when you don’t want to wear your strands up. Brown Updo with Flowers
Apart from providing a natural-looking appearance, brunette hair is able to achieve a velvety texture with just the right hair color. In this look the model’s hair has a roast brown shade that has been paired with dark amber and chocolate toffee highlights. The colors have been emphasized with the help of a feminine loose up style. A colorful floral crown is used to finish the look.Blonde Side Braid
We love all the shades of blonde since they tend to enhance any hairdo. In this particular design, beige blonde roots give way to vanilla and baby blonde shades. The stylists brought them together in this messy side braided style with loose strands that flew gently down her back. Well, this hairdo is great for any occasion, so feel free to pair it with any outfit.Gold Updo Hairstyle
You need to be focused on the color, since it is crucial. When it comes to this headdress you will need to mix golden amber with chocolate brown and strawberry blonde to create a beautiful hair color like the one you see here.
