#9: Zig-Zag Undercut
One of the most popular updos for a female is a high bun, but those can seem too boring or casual for women who want an extra dose of style. An intricate design takes your look to the next level without dyes. Plus, like most undercuts, it can be completely hidden when you let your hair loose.

While a ponytail may seem like the most basic women’s updo, this look is anything but that. The color on its own is enough to make this messy braided ponytail stand out, but since it’s so soft and romantic, it needs something opposite to balance it out.
#16: Platinum Curly Undercut
Bob haircuts can be classy and cute, but this look shuns that notion for a truly bad girl vibe.
