Flirty, feminine bridal hair: The relaxed updo

There are countless decisions to be made in the run-up to your wedding day.

One is how you'll be wearing your hair, and the options are endless: curled, straight, wavy, plaited, up or down.

This season is moving away from the more traditional, heavily sculpted style to tousled, textured tresses.



It's all about the relaxed updo: hair is worn up, loose with plenty of voluptuous, floating curls. Think Brigitte Bardot’s effortless, sensual glamour.

Hair accessories are also popular in completing the look. Brides are adorning their relaxed do's with floral decorations, either weaving dainty daisy chain style flowers into their hair or making more of a statement with a larger, single flower worn at an angle.

This style is wonderfully practical, and perfect for the summer months. If you’re lucky enough to have the sun shining on your wedding day, exposing the nape of your neck will keep you cool, and reveal just a little more skin.

So how can you achieve this look?

Instead of wearing your hair taut with individual strands rigidly kept in place, relax the style by letting a few strands of hair fall loose. This instantly gives a softer touch.

The style is feminine and natural at the same time as sexy, and easily held in place with just a touch of styling wax or gel.

Partings are generally worn to the side to create a sweeping, flirty shape.

And finish off with your chosen accessory.
