A big-night-out look doesn't have to be fussy; I love the contrast between a casual updo and a glamorous cocktail dress. Check out the 2 videos below for easy and glamorous 'dos.

First Up: I recreate one of my favorite looks spotted in the Dove Great Style Effect Gallery: an easy side-bun.

How to get the look:

1. Start by blow-drying hair with a round brush, and then smoothing strands with Dove Style+Care Frizz-Free Shine Cream-Serum.
2. Sweep all your hair over to one side and secure with a clear elastic, being sure not to pull hair all the way through (so you get a loose bun).
3. Pull out a few pieces around your face to give the look softness.
4. Finish with a misting of Dove Style+Care Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray.

Next up: the easiest-ever braided updo; a great solution if you're headed straight out to a party from work.

How to get the look:

1. Start by blow-drying hair with a round brush, and then smoothing strands with Dove Style+Care Frizz-Free Shine Cream-Serum.
2. French braid back the top section of your hair (click over to the Great Style Effect Gallery for an easy French Braid tutorial).
3. Secure the braid with a bobby pin.
4. Pull the rest of your hair into a topknot, and secure with an elastic.
5. Add a little sparkle.
6. Finish with a misting of Dove Style+Care Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray.
