Timeless And Romantic Wedding Up-dos

Whether it’s been your own wedding or even a close friend or family member who is getting hitched, the importance of hairstyle (amongst other things) is often a top priority.

One of the most timeless styles definitely has to be romantic up-do which requires little to no maintenance, and stays in place all day (and night) long.

Blondes

If you’re a blonde like Lauren Conrad, then this style is definitely a match made in heaven for you.

The low boho bun is secured at the nape of the neck, with hair pinned back from the front for a elegant finish. Add some cute accessories around the bun before heading off to the reception, and don’t forget some sea-salt spray to keep hair looking full and textured.

Brunettes

Show off your shiny brown hair with a classic undo featuring braids and curls. This is such a stunning look for girls with brown hair (especially if you’re rocking a few blonde highlights), since it photographs beautifully on camera.

Redheads

If your hair colour is anything between a strawberry blonde and Lindsay Lohan’s signature shade, then some white or pale pink flowers will create a stunning contrast.

Start on curled hair and create a wrap-around bun on the side of your head. Pin through some seasonal flowers, or something like baby breath is also amazing!

Short hair

Just because you have short hair, doesn’t mean you have to miss out on this trend! Take your hair into small, sectioned ringlets and remember to curl in different directions.

This will create a romantic look without requiring too much effort – plus a few flower accessories are must-have for this style.

Thick hair

Thicker hair can often be difficult to style, especially since it feels like it’s weighing down your roots. Why not try a half-up half-down hairstyle which will still look incredible without causing pain or damage to your hair follicle.

A flower garland or wreath is another way to spice up your hairstyle without going over the top.

Not only will these hairstyles photograph beautifully in your wedding photos, but they are also suitable for the bridesmaids and even the mother of the bride!

Finger wave

Even though this was one of the most popular styles throughout the 1920s, it still looks amazing today! Give yourself a modern twist by parting your hair down the middle (instead of at the side), and wrap the rest of your hair in a loose bun.

Chignon

A classic chignon is ideal for a bride with thick, long hair that is often textured or unruly. A style like this keeps it in place all day long, and won’t create tension at the base of your scalp. Make sure to keep a few extra bobby pins in your kit, just in case!

Hair comb

Accessorise a classic hairstyle with a beautiful hair comb, which can also be your ‘something old.’ Pearls, flowers and other little hair ornaments are a match made in heaven if your dress features lots of white lace.

Ringlets

Give your hairstyle a bit of a 1950s influence with ringlets. They are perfect for brides with really thick or course hair, which needs to be tamed throughout the day. Feature a few ringlets on the side of your hair and simply create a neat and tidy bun with the rest that’s leftover.

Tight curls

Who can resist a classic curl on their wedding day? Use a pair of hot rollers overnight if your hair finds it difficult to stay in shape. And don’t forget to use a generous amount of hairspray for extra hold.

Wedding Hairstyles Using Flowers

Create a fun and flirty spring wedding-look by accessorising your hair with some natural blooms. For her wedding to rocker Jamie Hince, Kate Moss had her bridesmaids and flowers girls wearing flower wreaths which perfectly complemented their outfits. Below are just a few ways to accessorise your hair for the big day!

Messy up-do

If you want a twist to a classic bun, accessorise your hair with a few natural flowers for your wedding day. In this case, flowers are pinned into the bun on the right side to give drama to the entire look.

Natural curls

Go for the simplistic look and style your hair down with some textured curls, which frame the face beautifully. To add some flowers to this look, take a few strands of hair from one side, twist and secure just above the ear with a pin. Then over the top, pin the tiny flowers you wish to use. The bride in this scenario has matched her hair accessories to the grooms boutonnière, very cute!

Chignon

For a chignon hairstyle, you can’t go past a few flowers which will make you look and feel like you’ve stepped out of a Jane Austen novel! Tuck a few of your favourite flowers into the top of the bun, and secure with bobby pins to conceal any tracks. Baby’s breath is perfect since it will stay in place, and can last for hours.
