Wedding Hair Advice: Soft Romantic Updos
Knottie Stacey recently got in touch with me asking my advice for her wedding hairstyle. Here was her brief:
“I’m struggling with ideas for my wedding hair for our wedding next May. I don’t really want it down or up in some “tight” ‘do but would love something soft and “flowy.” I get worried that my hair won’t stay put for the whole day.”
Don’t’ worry Stacey, there are plenty of great options for you. Here are some great styles to get you started…
Wedding hair criteria:
- Not stiff and structured
- Soft and romantic feel
- Needs to stay in place all day
America Ferrera: A knotted bun
This hairstyle is smooth and elegant on top, but the messy knotted bun at the back gives you a playful finish.
Lauren Conrad: Wispy low bun
Pieces of hair falling around your face is a great way to soften any wedding hairstyle. Have your updo secured low at the nape of your neck and twist sections back for a romantic feel.
Kate Winslet: Textured yet polished updo
The opposite of America Ferrera’s style, this look is texturised on top, but finishes with a perfect bun that won’t budge.
Whitney Port: Loosely elegant hairstyle
By having your hairstyle fall at the nape of your neck you instantly give it a less formal feel. But to keep the look tidy opt for a smooth finish, two perfectly tame sections around the face, and a few twist and turns to create the bun.
Kate Hudson: Tousled back with volume
Keep your hair out of your face with a hairstyle like this. The tousled texture stops it from being too formal. Unlike Kate Winslet’s hair, this style has volume at the top and a messier bun.
Nikki Hilton: A braided updo
This braided updo is tidy, elegant, will stay put but isn’t too formal.
