Every woman wants to look beautiful on her special day. Great hair is a must when it comes to your wedding, and that means a visit to the salon–but you need to know what kind of style you want first! If you have been trying to decide which updo style will be best for your bridal look, we can help.
The Classic Elegance of the Updo
A classic look, the updo has been popular since early beginnings of civilization. Worn by the Greeks, Romans, ancient Chinese, and even some tribes, updos have been a regal hairstyle choice throughout time–and they still are today! If you are a bride-to-be, you want your wedding to be perfect, and this age-old classic is sure to make sure that all eyes are on you.
The Modern Take
While the updo does have classic roots, that doesn’t mean that your updo can’t be completely modern. Modern takes on the updo are fresh and new but do not sacrifice the same classic beauty that updos of the past have offered. It is this combination that will make you feel beautiful on your wedding day, which is exactly how you should feel.
What Makes an Updo?
Updos come in a number of categories, from voluminous bouffant buns to organic fishtail braids. The main elements of an updo are:
Many modern updos combine several of these components to create a one-of-a-kind look. If you are the bride that wants to turn heads, speak to your stylist about adding a few different elements to your overall style. On your special day, you are allowed to go for a bold style!
While the bun sometimes gets a bad rap, it shouldn’t. Buns are not just for business professionals or workout sessions, but they can also be wonderfully bridal. This versatile hairstyle can be perfect for any kind of woman, whether you are a more reserved bride or if you are trying to go big and bold. If you want to bring a little bit more attention to yourself, speak to your stylist about a high bun or a voluminous bun. If you are hoping for something more classically romantic, consider a low bun.
A knot is a bridal look that has been popular for years, but modern knots can always have a bit of an interesting twist. The knot can look clean, concise, and regal, or you can loosen it up a little and ask for something a bit on the disheveled side. Modern women often like to combine this updo with a braid and some loose pieces to frame the face. Ask your stylist about a messy knot or a classic knot if you believe that this style is right for you.
Braided updos are lovely if you are hoping to achieve a country chic look or if you want to sport some urban glamor. Braids may not seem like a common bridal choice, but modern brides love them! You can have small French braids, chunky fishtails, or even small basic braids. Oftentimes combined with another updo element, such as a bun or a knot, braids can add an extra, interesting component to any updo hairstyle.
