The most elegant and fashionable hairstyle option for many brides
The most elegant and fashionable hairstyle option for many brides with long tresses is the Updo. There are different types of Updo, and all of which require at least shoulder length hair. If you don’t have enough hair to put into a bun, you may opt to have hair extensions applied to get the same glamorous result. If you find that these styles are hard to do on your own, it would be best to have them done by a professional stylist or at least someone who has created this hairstyle in the past.
The first and most popular Updo is the Elegant Updo
The first and most popular Updo is the Elegant Updo. This style is perfect for hair with two tone colors, a darker shade contrasting a lighter shade. Many brides having their wedding ceremony in a church choose this style as it is perfect for such a formal affair. The Elegant Updo is perfect for any wedding gown style, but it looks best with a bare shoulder. Brides with long, slender necks will look enchanting with this hairstyle, even without any veil or hair accents.
A hairdo fit for a princess bride is the Fall or Falling Curls Updo
A hairdo fit for a princess bride is the Fall or Falling Curls Updo. Strands of hair, usually curled loosely hang from to the nape of the neck as well as the sides of the face. This style can be accented with a tiara, either made with fresh flowers or silver and semi precious stones. Most brides wear the Fall Curls Updo with bare shoulders or deep necklines to emphasize their bejeweled necks. A simple pendant or choker will complement the Falling Curls Updo. A chandelier earring will not do any justice to this hairstyle, so a simple pearl earring can be worn instead.
Similar to the Falling Curls Updo is the Tight Curls Updo
Similar to the Falling Curls Updo is the Tight Curls Updo. The difference is that the curls falling on the neck, shoulders and sides of the face are curled tightly. With the use of a tiara made with crystal and silver, the Tight Curls Updo’s simple look becomes alluring, especially for young brides. A Black-American bride with naturally tight curly hair will look splendid with this updo. If, however, you have long straight hair, you can still have your hair curled temporarily by a professional for your big day. Be warned that treating your hair severely could damage it.
The last and probably the most exotic style is the Spanish Updo
The last and probably the most exotic style is the Spanish Updo. Think of flamenco dancers when trying to imagine how this style would look like. Because of its exotic flair, many women think that this hairdo will not fit their ethnicity; and opt for more simpler styles. However, the Spanish Updo will fit any facial shape, accessories and wedding dress style. A popular choice of jewelry would be the chandelier earrings and a silk choker with a semi-precious stone. The Spanish Updo will be hard to emulate in your home, as the details of the bun are very intricate; so it would be best to have this style done in a salon or by a stylist.
