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.

Get The Look: 1920s Waves Like Christina Hendricks’ Emmys Hair

Need wedding hair inspiration whether you’re the bride or a guest? We think these flapper-inspired, 1920s waves, like Christina Hendricks showed off at last month’s Emmys, are the perfect elegant hairstyle for medium to long hair. Simply pair with a feminine dress, antique jewellery and a vampish red lip.

We asked celebrity hairstylist Dario Cotroneo to share his how-to to recreate this gorgeous hairstyle in just 4 easy steps.

1. Section a side part from the hairline to the crown area. Then section hair at the back of head into three even sections.

2. Begin each section in the back area by backcombing the roots and spray with Thermal Image from Wella. Place the hair under the MYCURL and roll up horizontally. Starting from the mid lengths area, secure the first strap then continue rolling the MYCURL to the roots and secure the second strap. Then clamp the irons over the MYCURL for 15seconds. Repeat for the other two back sections.

3. Divide the front sections into two sections on both side of the face, roll in two Large MYCURLs on both side sections away from the face without the backcombing, spray with Thermal Image from Wella and roll a Large MYCURL into the hair horizontally from the mid lengths and secure with straps around the cheekbone area. Then clamp irons over the MYCURL for 15 seconds. Allow hair to cool down for 20 minutes.

4. After hair has cooled, remove all MYCURLs and lightly brush hair forward from the mid-lengths to ends in order to separate the curls, and then spray some shine spray for a glossy finish. To keep your style looking polished and groomed, around the face and on the top layer, spray hairspray onto a makeup brush and brush around the parting and around the face.

Are you a fan of this 1920s hairstyle?
