Here is an updo that has a twist to it, literally. The twist to this updo gives the hair a very smooth and natural look, but the overall style looks very put-together. The variation in textures truly makes this style very striking in appearance.
This is an updo that has a variety of textures. It has smooth curled locks on top and intricate locks on the bottom. In the front, this is an updo that looks really smooth, soft, and tight. This hairstyle is fascinating visually.
Here is an updo that is almost striking in its smoothness. It appears to have been sculpted from a completely different material, as if it is too perfect to be real. This lovely and layered hairstyle is truly a marvel to behold. It looks smooth and soft at the same time.

This is a long and loose look that a lot of people will love. People will feel as if their hair is free, or has been set free. However, this is a hairstyle that is going to appear to be much smoother than a lot of free hairstyles, so it truly manages to create the right balance.
