If you are tired of all these braids and ponytails consider banana updos. I know it sounds funny but that’s how we call them although some people call it a French twist too. Banana updos are meant to give women a graceful appearance. The vertical shape of this updo adds length to the neck and creates an incredibly elegant style. If you are invited to a special dinner or wedding party, make sure that this hairstyle is suitable for such occasions. One of the best things about this updo is that it can be worn by all ladies.Some complicated updos are too difficult to create by your own, so you have to spend much time and money on hair solons. I am glad to inform you that a French twist is pretty easy to replicate so you will absolutely achieve it at home. If you don’t know how to start, just watch several tutorials of this hairstyle and then start your job.
This updo is not really new. If you remember the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” you will also remember gorgeous Audrey Hepburn with an elegant banana updo. Since Audrey is a “sex symbol”, she can be a good source of inspiration. These updos come in many variations, so look below to find the one which will compliment your face features.
Right, styling the banana updo takes some expertise but with step-by-step styling instructions even newbies can succeed. For creating a banana updo the tools you need to have are-hair extensions (this hairstyle requires at least shoulder-length hair otherwise you will have to use hair extensions), volumizing powder (if you have fine hair consider using volumizing powder for extra volume and height), bobby pins, comb, hairspray and a little hair wax.
Banana Updo plus Quiff
I have already mentioned that there are many ways to wear this updo but now I want to display the most glamorous banana updo. This French twist or banana updo is combined with a luscious quiff on the top of the head. To get it you just need to keep a section of top hair out of the banana and use it to form a quiff.
Vertical Banana Updo
This vertical updo is a real masterpiece! It may be a perfect bridal hairstyle. The following hairdo consists of two vertical shaped bananas and a quiff. You need to separate your hair into three portions. Then fold two portions into loose bananas and fold the top portion back to get a cool quiff.
Those, who are fond of nonchalant and unkempt looks, may wear this updo in a messy style. You just need to use a proper comb and tease your strands. The height depends on your hair length, it goes without saying that longer hair will provide you with higher effect. Anyway you can still tailor some beautiful accessories onto your updo.
