    Wedding Hairstyles Series Part 1: Up-do’s

    Wedding Updo Hairstyles

    Up-Do’s are the most frequently requested wedding hairstyles

    The most common of wedding hairstyles requested in our salon, is an elegant up-do. My guess is this is because an elegant up-do, makes a statement that this is not just any ordinary day! An up-do for your wedding is the perfect choice to show off beautiful jewelry, the neckline of your dress, toned arms and, of course, your wedding day glow. So, for those of you who have chosen to go with up-do’s for your wedding hairstyles, here are some things I suggest to make your wedding hairstyles picture perfect.

    If your bridal gown is ornate, you can pick from any number of wedding hairstyles or up-do’s that are equally as elaborate. You can choose a complex up-do, or you can add to a simple up-do by using beautiful hair accessories that sparkle and shine. The key to any great wedding is in the coordinating. Your wedding hairstyle, dress, shoes and even location should all coordinate to flow smoothly together. Keep this tip in mind when planning out your big day. If you’re looking for something a little bit different for your wedding location, have you considered getting married in somewhere like Fiji? The Royal Davui Island could be just for you, why don’t you view their Fiji wedding packages to find out more. If you’ve got your location sorted and now just need the finishing touches like hair sorted, we’re here to help!

    A simple chignon works perfectly if you want the formality of an up-do without all the fuss

    Searching for a wedding hairstyle that is a bit simpler? Try a loose chignon that screams simple elegance. A loose chignon would go perfectly with an outdoor ceremony or a dress with minimal embellishments. Simple chignons work great for both naturally curly girls and those with straight strands too because you can work with your natural hair when it comes to these types of wedding hairstyles.

    Styling Formal Hair Secret #1:

    • Keep it simple!! Simplicity, is the key to pulling off a great formal hair style. Don’t choose a formal hair style that is especially intricate or complex looking.

A great simple formal hair style to try is one like the picture below.To get this hair style, simply pull hair back into a bun, letting a few pieces fall forward around your face.

    • Keep it dirty!! Second day hair works wonders when it comes to styling formal hair. Try washing your hair the day before you have a special occasion to go to and then style your hair ‘dirty’. The additional hair care products from second day hair will help to hold curls, bends and updo’s much better than squeaky clean hair. To fake second day hair, try using a product like, Jonathan Product Spray Dirt , which gives second day texture to clean hair.
