Amanda Seyfried has styled her hair in an asymmetric semi-updo to show off her beautiful blonde curls. She has simply twirled a strand of her hair on one side of her head, pulling it back and securing it towards her ear. The rest of the hair falls over her shoulders in glamorous long waves. This style is very feminine and works particularly well with long hair.

  • Asymmetric updos can vary depending on the style you choose. When styling your hair in an asymmetric style it can be simplistic or creative depending on the look you want to create. Semi-updos are very popular among celebrities as they can make a simple hairstyle unique! The asymmetry of these updos distracts from the much more subtle asymmetries of the facial features, which may explain why this style works so well for so many women.

    It is quick and easy to style asymmetric semi-updos. There is no limit to your imagination when styling your hair this style for example, you could simply pull up a strand of hair on one side of your head and secure it with a pretty hair clip.

    Other examples of asymmetric semi-updos are seen in the image above; Sarah Gadon shows the nonchalant version of the asymmetric semi-updo, Jessica Simpson shows us the ‘girl-next door’ side of her personality and young singer Jessica Jarrell found a way to look mature yet playful. Asymmetric semi-updos often combine alluring qualities with sassy playfulness. The asymmetric styling works well with straight, wavy or curly hair. You can exercise your creativity by adding braids and twirls to the style.

    You can style your free flowing hair, with waves and curls to give your semi-updo a touch of elegance (see Amanda Seyfried’s hairstyle) or alternatively you could create casual waves (Sarah Gadon) to suggest a carefree lifestyle. High-volume, high-gloss semi-updos with playful large waves (Jessica Simpson) are perfect for parties. Jessica Jarrell managed a professional yet playful look with her sleek, perfectly styled semi-updo with braided side hair.

    Volumising powder or styling mousse provides the necessary volume and manageability for semi-updos.
