Beautiful braided updos

One of the best things about braided wedding updos is they suit hair of all lengths and types. You don’t need super long lengths to achieve romantic and textured braided updos. If your hair is on the shorter side, you can still create softly swept hairstyles with braids and twists. So your recent lob hairstyle can easily translate into a romantic updo that you’ll just adore.

Fancy an updo that’s a little more textured or detailed? Chat to your hairstylist about incorporating extensions into your bridal look.

Half up braided hairstyles

If you love the look of long loose curls but would prefer to keep the hair off your face, a half up braided hairstyle might be the perfect look for you. A half up hairstyle will offer the perfect foundation to secure your veil and it can also be adorned with bridal headpieces to finish your look. Whether it’s dainty and delicate bridal hair pins or a larger statement headpiece, a half up hairstyle is refined, chic and effortless in every way.

Twisted and braided ponytails

A ponytail isn’t just for weekends. We’ve searched high and low and have pulled together our favourite twisted and braided ponytails that are wedding-worthy.  And remember, just because you’re wearing a ponytail it doesn’t mean you can’t wear a veil. Our BORDEAUX fingertip veil and AUDREY chapel length veil are the perfect accompaniments to ponytails.

The new classic wedding updo is simple and stunning. It’s fair to say wedding hairstyles have come a long way from the days of overly sculptured and curled hairdos from the 1990s/2000s.  We’ve moved away from the tight curls and glossy gel finish to more relaxed and tousled hairstyles with a dreamy, timeless appeal.  Think Meghan Markle chic and effortlessly elegant.

Stunning loose updos

These gorgeous wedding hairstyles are unbounded by form. They feel raw and naturally undone – perfect for a relaxed and romantic wedding day. Think relaxed artful textures, low and tousled twists for a romantic look.

Loose updos are the perfect way to accentuate balayage and highlighted hair showcasing depth and texture. For brides with overall colour, these styles still feel textured and perfectly imperfect.

Regardless of the length of your hair, these stunning looks are easy to pull off with the help of teasing, bobby pins and possibly a few extensions.

Simple and easy updos

A wedding day doesn’t need to mean polished locks and perfect curls. These simple yet stunning wedding hairstyles are worthy of a celebration just in themselves.

If your dress is heavily embellished or textured, contrast it with softly smooth hair that’s been gently swept up into an ethereal and romantic updo.  From sheer simplicity to sleek and modern twists, there’s an updo for every bride if that’s what you’re hoping to achieve.

The easy updos below can be achieved with natural waves or constructed by heat and hand. Regardless of how you construct them, we adore the textured and airiness of these beautiful bridal looks.
