Whether you’re going out for a stroll or to a special event, your hairdo can make or break your outfit.

Have you ever spent hours creating new exciting looks for your lovely sim, just to end up at a party with the same hairstyle as every other gal? Disappointing.

An updo can make any outfit snag that extra “umph”. I think there’s a level of regalness to it.

And there’s no hair discrimination either, with plenty of CC options for curly, medium-length, short, wavy, or straight hair.

So I took the time to make a list of my favorite updo’s (for sim ladies of all walks of life). Check ‘em out and feel free to grab any that stand out!

This messy topknot with the most adorable fringe can be worn for sporty/casual events, or even more formal if you dress up.

Our lovely CC designer LeahLillith really went all-out on this!

The CC has 51 different colors to choose from, so there’s a lot here.

That’s a new color every day of the week for over a month. Talk about variety.

Whether you have an angsty teenager wanting a fresh style, or a mom of three looking for some change, this updo can suit them all by adding that extra uppity goodness to their look.

The Elsa Coronation hairstyle from KikiSimLive is for all my Disney and Frozen fans out there!

Seriously, who didn’t love the Ice Queen’s regal updo?

This could be worn as a daily look, cause who isn’t a Queen on a daily basis?
Or maybe save it for a wedding day and surprise your future spouse(and you’ll need a gorgeous dress to go with it).

Note this one does require the Get Famous expansion pack, but if you’ve got it already then this updo is definitely a great look to debut with.

Show off those curls, girls!

This twisted natural curly updo with the “finest slayed edges” is the look I would do if I knew how to tame my curly fro.

I’m not very capable of styling my naturally curly hair, so I let my Sim slay instead!

With four colors available here, your virtual lady has everything she needs for an adorable updo on demand.

It’s a very simple yet romantic look, with soft waves and a braided top-knot. It’s a hairdo that’s versatile and can dress up any casual outfit.

We don’t always have time for intricate updos in our day-to-day.

And yes, even in sims-life we can be in a rush…

This simple slick topknot is very chic and lets you adorable ladies show off your face, earrings, and other accessories.

DarkNighTt created this look with 40 color options, and it’s even compatible with hats too.

Give your Sim that slick updo look that celebrities like Zendaya, Hailey Bieber, and the Kardashians sport on the runway.


2. Lisa Ponytail

When it comes to hairstyles, makeup, and fashion, let’s give credit where it’s due: K-pop has taken over the scene.

Anto’s sleek high ponytail with a thick fringe is just plain adorable. Inspired by Lisa from Blackpink, this CC comes in 60 stunning colors. Yes, that’s a lot!

And I’ll admit, I even attempted this look on myself… (wish there was CC for real life, who’s got the time!)

A top bun with chopsticks: what’s not to love here?

This updo really could work in almost any event. Well, maybe not prom.

But if you dress up a bit this could totally match a cocktail dress. Or if you keep the bun a little messy then why not wear it around the house on a lazy Sunday?

Super cute, super chic. Just what the hair doctor ordered.


Bonus: UpDo Dread Locks for Men (Jacob Hair)

Guy Updo Hairstyle - Sims 4 CC

Who said Updos were only for women?

This look is for our gents and it’s one of the few that I really wanted to include, so I’m counting this as a bonus CC to add into the mix.

This dreadlock updo gives off chill Bob Marley vibes, with the coolest braided dread bun you’ll find on a guy.

Creator BirkschesSimBlog has other impressive looks too, but this one really stands out.

If you’re going on a beach date or for a casual daily look, this male updo is surely the way to go. It’s also compatible with hats so whip out those beanies and pull off that hippie/rocker look!
