An Evening in Florence

If you’re a little like us, you’re a tad obsessed with Pinterest. It’s easy to spend hours exploring new hair and makeup artists, and we can’t resist the tutorials.

Here are our top 5 wedding updo tutorials we’re loving. Even if you don’t try them for your wedding day, they may be useful for your bridesmaids, engagement party or your bridal shower.

1. Dutch braid crown

Simple. Elegant. Textured. There’s the perfect amount of volume, texture and detail without feeling overwhelming.  Finish it with a set of hair pins tucked into the braids or a simple hair vine that meanders along the line of the braid.

2. Twisted chignon

Looking for a traditional wedding updo with a modern edge? We just love this twisted chignon. The understated twists are on trend, positioned low for to create a romantic silhouette, and easily accommodates a wedding veil and comb to elevate your whole look.

3. Messy ballet bun

We just love the softness of this ballet bun. It elongates the face and draws attention to the cheek bones and eyes.

Consider styling this look with a statement bridal comb or hair vine that wraps around the bun. For a look that adds to the effortless of this style, pin some delicate hair pins to the side for a touch of perfection.

Depending on the size of your bun, position a veil or comb above the bun to beautifully frame your hairstyle.

4. Low knotted bun

Continuing on our bridal bun journey, we can’t take our eyes off this low knotted version. The subtle back-combing at the crown creates a hint of height while the low position reduces any hair headaches. Add a soft, lace trimmed, chapel length veil and some bridal pins to complete your bridal look.

5. Boho braids

We love the way the braids on this updo frame the face and adds texture and detail.  How to accessorise this look? Less is more. Some delicate earrings will be the perfect accompaniment.
