Half Up Waves

Half up waves are a popular choice, especially after the beautiful wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. The hair is loosely curled bringing the sides together and secured with a pretty brooch. Allow the hair to cascade over your shoulders for a true romantic look.

Messy Updo

Hair that has a wave/curl to it will look fabulous pulled together and placed as a high bun. Or if this is too dramatic create as a low bun, leaving a few strands of hair to fall effortlessly around the face.

Delicate hair pins or a vintage comb encrusted with jewels placed in the hair will add to the romance.

Ballerina Bun

A ballerina bun creates a timeless and elegant look. If you want to show off those beautiful cheekbones the ballerina bun is definitely the one to try. With so many variations the possibilities are endless.

To accessorise you can add a single flower, vintage hair comb, or a simple silk ribbon around the base will look stunning.
