Ready for a date night this Valentine's Day or this weekend? Don’t miss out on the perfect opportunity to show off your tresses with gorgeous updo hairstyles. Perfect for showing off a piece of jewellery or a nice off-the-shoulder dress, updos are a great way to also give some space to your natural features and experiment with a different type of makeup. If you’re in need for some serious inspiration, here’s some of the most popular updos that you can recreate with your trusted Cliphair hair extensions, and a little bit of creativity and patience. So what are you waiting for? Grab your tresses, and let’s get styling!

The Messy Bun

@cliphairextensions A touch of Red hair to make everybody stare 👀🍓 @AshleyLeeHair uses our 18” Double Weft Clip Ins in the shade, ‘Mahogany Red’ to create this elegant updo! Shop this glamorous look today 🛒 #redefiningred #redhair #hairextensions #fyp ♬ original sound - vicmram

Romantic and boho-chic, the messy bun is one of the most popular and easy udpo hairstyles ever. Also seen on blushing brides and celebrities around the world, this hairdo has rapidly evolved from “stay-at-home” hairstyle to “glamorously undone” staple look. Perfect to go with many different aesthetics and incredibly easy to recreate, you can use your clip in hair extensions to add more volume and thickness when creating it. If, on the other hand, you’re wearing a product such as nano ring hair extensions, then you won’t have to worry about any of the beads showing. Perfect, no? Pull out a few tendrils for a more youthful and playful finish, and give it a light curl with your curling iron to add romantic vibes to the recipe. 

The Sleek Bun

If the Clean Girl aesthetic still has you in a chokehold, then look no further than the sleek bun as your updo of choice for a V-day date. Using a pintail comb for precise parting and sectioning, you can create a neat middle-part and slick everything else to the sides and the back, for a polished finish. Pro tip: you can use the Cliphair Hair Extensions Mask to hold you hair back and also restore its moisture levels! Add a few spritzes of Moisturising Silky Spray to achieve unmatched shine on the final look, and you’re all set. For a sleek hairdo like this, if you’d like to add more length and thickness to the bun, resort to super-discreet products such as Seamless hair extensions or nano bond hair extensions.

The Milkmaid Braid

If your vibe is more leaning towards the cottagecore trend, then the Milkmaid braid is a clever way to keep your hair away from your face whilst also making you look trendy and sophisticated. Often seen on “that girl”, paired with a long skirt, knitted details, and boho everything, the milkmaid braid (also known as the Crown braid) is quick and easy to replicate even if your plaiting skills are yet to be worked on. Just divide your hair in two sections, then braid them from top to bottom in a classic three-way plait. Then, wrap the two plaits around your head, and secure them with the help of bobby pins matching your root colour. Want to know more?

Also known as the bubble braid, the bubble ponytail is a gorgeous updo hairstyle that can be created in a few minutes in the comfort of your own home. All you need is a set of small, clear hair ties, and… Your Remy hair extensions of course. To make it easier, you could also use the Cliphair Wrap Around Ponytail hair extensions set. Put your natural hair in a ponytail or a bun at the desired height, then pop the clip in ponytail on, and use the wrap-around strand to hide the attachment.

This unmissable hair accessory can be braided, curled, and flipped out however your heart desires – giving you all the freedom and versatility that you need to express yourself. Dividing the ponytail in sections with the hair ties will help you create the “bubbles”, that you can then plump up by gently pulling them with your fingers.

The High Ponytail

Inspired by Ariana Grande’s “yes, and”? Well, I don’t blame you. Ari’s unapologetic anthem is already a bop, and quite stuck in my brain… So if she’s inspiring your date hairstyle too, welcome to your safe space. Now, talking about a slicked-back high ponytail worthy of the name… Make sure you grab your Wrap Around Ponytail and flip it out with your hair straightener after applying it. You can use your Cliphair pintail comb to create a neat parting in the middle, then use your favourite hair gel or wax to keep any flyaways at bay!

The Space Buns

What if your energy is going more to the playful side? Then make this your go-to look! Pop your hair up in two buns – whether you want them to be messy, polished, or even braided that’s entirely up to you. And if you want to keep things more romantic, why not turn this look into a half-up hairstyle instead? Using a product such as Ultra Volume hair extensions or the ever popular Double Weft hair extensions will help you keep the necessary thickness and bounce on the half-down area, with the rest of your hair tied up in two buns on the top of your head. Space buns are a cute, popular and trendy hairstyle – seen on many celebrities and often spotted at parties and festivals too. If your date involves some neon lights and perhaps an arcade or mini-golf, your hair will totally match the vibe!

The Braided Bun

When a simple chignon doesn’t quite cut it, the braided bun comes to the rescue with elegance and its own sophisticated touch. You can either style your hair in one big plait and then roll it up in a bun on the back of your head, or simply keep one section separate and style it in a classic plait to frame a sleek chignon.

As seen on Jennifer Lopez and her holiday look, the braided bun is an extravagant and classy updo that never fails to impress. Make it yours with the help of Remy hair extensions and a good dose of hairspray for maximum hold and zero frizz, so that you can enjoy a polished finish without having to worry about any flyaways.

The Claw Clip ‘do

Perhaps your look is more relaxed, and/or you’re planning on letting your hair down at some point. In that case, why not opt for an embellished claw clip that can keep your hair up for as long as you want to, without ruining your stunning blowout?

Style your hair as normal or use a set of velcro rollers to give it just the right amount of bounce, and add your clip in hair extensions for maximised volume and thickness. Then, grab your claw clip and get creative! There are many different ways you can use a claw clip in your hair to achieve different finishes. Want to know more?
