This elegant updo for black hair is sophisticated yet simple. Hair at the front is parted and pulled off the face, leaving soft bangs side swept across the forehead.

At the back, you have a few options. Even with medium length hair, you could wear a smooth French twist. With longer hair you could go for another French look, the chignon, a low bun worn off to one side.

The special event look isn’t complete without perfect makeup, like the gorgeous cat eyes and bright red pout. Show off some of your individual style with costume jewelry – like this bright overside ring or fabulous earrings.
