Go for laid-back chic this wedding season with a messy updo
From the royal wedding to country ceremonies, messy updos are a must for 2018.
If you thought Meghan Markle’s understated look for her royal wedding was the perfect choice for the day, you’re not alone - the new Duchess of Sussex is one of many beautiful brides embracing the messy updo trend for their wedding day, and this on-trend style is one we love to create.
Let your accessories do the talking
You might not opt for a priceless tiara for your big day, but a dressed-down updo can provide the perfect backdrop you need to make your dress and accessories shine. From flower crowns to decorative veils, combining a formal updo with complex accessories can often feel a bit too formal or stuffy.
Going simple with your style and choosing a messy updo, with face-framing flyaways, can provide all you need to let your wedding day glow shine through, and not worry about keeping your locks perfect throughout the day.
Braids aren’t just limited to school photos, and festival chic - a grown-up, beautifully undone style of plait can make all the difference to your wedding-day hair, providing texture and interest without being overly ‘done up’. Combine a swept-up style with simple flowers and a beautiful braid, and you have all you need to look perfect for your big day.
If you’re looking for a way to create a fresh, down-to-earth and attractive way to style yourself, you can’t go wrong with braids as part of a messy updo.
Half up, half down
A messy updo doesn’t have to mean that every part of your hair is swept up, pinned back or styled on the top of your head. In fact, the half-and-half hairdo is making a comeback when it comes to wedding style, offering the appeal of a unique design with the more casual addition of cascading curls, flowing locks or textured tresses.
For those brides who love their longer hair, and those who feel it’s a shame to hide their favourite feature under a veil or flower crown, this style can provide the best of both worlds, with a less polished updo that still has an impact.
