Updos can be costly and keep you in the salon for hours. Not every occasion requires such posh styling. What you didn't know is that most updos can be created with a maximum of eight bobby pins.

You never know what kind of look Kristen Stewart will pull out on the red carpet, and that's why we love her. Last night at the Eclipse premiere, she gave a fresh twist to an elegant updo.
