Updos are a party hairstyle staple, and it's easy to see why when it's done as neatly and elegantly as Nia Long's style here. Recreate this classic look by smoothing the hairline with a lightweight gel and a boar bristle brush. Use plenty of pins to hold hair in place. Need help in the bun department? Look for an attachment that matches your hair color and pin it on. You can style this updo in minutes, and it'll easily last an entire evening.
