Question: What are some great wedding updos for long hair?
Answer: An updo is a fabulous choice of hairstyle for a wedding—whether you’re a guest or in the bridal party. It keeps your hair looking elegant and picture-perfect for all sorts of wedding festivities including dancing, lots of hugs, candid photos with friends and family, and—of course—cake eating (or cake in the face).
Cute wedding updos for long hair:
1. The embellished bun: Add a clip as a fun way to accessorize your hairstyle—you can even tie in the overall theme or season. Etsy has some fun and unique hair accessory selections for your updo.
2. The braided headband: Braids are extra fun to incorporate into a wedding hairstyle. They are soft, romantic, and overall very wedding-esque. Makeup Geek has a great tutorial for this curved-dutch-braid-to-messy-bun. Put your own twist on it by switching up the side of the bun or even keeping it low in the back.
3. The simple twist bun: This 2-minute low braided bun is a quick and easy way to get your hair up without a lot of fuss. This easy wedding updo is especially great for those of us who don’t have the time or patience for a more intensive look.
One of the best things about an updo is that it doesn’t have to be perfect. Pull out a few strands of wispy hair to frame your face, or use bobby pins to secure the layers behind your ears. Learning how to do an updo yourself can take some practice, so be sure to attempt it a few times before the big day so you’ll know exactly how much time it will take. And don’t forget the hairspray!
