If you tend to go the extra mile with your hair, your wedding day hairstyle should be spectacular. So, why not go all-out with a jewelled, braided bun updo? It's the hairstyle that pretty much has it all: a chic updo, accessories and a braid!
Why this bridal updo works
As you can see, this hairstyle has a lot of detail, but it remains elegant thanks to the low bun placement and the simplicity of the baby braid. When combining details like this, it's important to remember less is more - you don't want to one to overwhelm the others, and you really don't want fussy hairstyle that could overwhelm your entire look. So, it's better to keep each detail to a minimum, and take care not to overload your hair with too many different things.
Before the big day, you should definitely trial this hairstyle, whether you do it at the salon or at home. If you choose the latter, the good news is that it's really easy to replicate without a professional.
The trick is to create the baby braid first, then style a low bun as you normally would. For a really polished look, leave two sections of hair loose on either side of your face while creating the bun. When you're happy with the bun, pull these sections back and wrap the ends around it, winding them over the top, then pin them underneath.
After all that, make sure you finish with plenty of hairspray. A high-shine mist like Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray will eliminate any existing flyaways or frizz before you add your accessories.
