In case you were wondering, it is possible to do a nice, clean updo that still is soft to both the eye and the touch. Many times, we get brides who are 100% freaked out that their updo will look too constricting and overdone butat the same time, are scared that “too loose” will mean it will fall apart before they say “I do”.
It’s a fair fear …
But still, a bride has nothing to be anxious about. Your hair artist will ensure that your soft updo will be pinned properly and of course treated with the right products (hairspray anyone?) to ensure all day wear without a slip-up in sight. On your end, you just have to put a bit of trust in your artist and also, follow his or her prep instructions for the wedding day. The more you invest in adhering to their prep instructions, the more your chosen soft ‘do will stay in place and turn out just the way you like it.
Hands-off the style is also key. Don’t fuss or touch your ‘do that much and this goes for the entire bridal party … they should NOT be touching your hair or pushing pieces or “testing” if certain pieces are pinned in or if a section of the hair would look better “this way …“.
You hired your hair artist for a reason – because they are the expert.
This particular updo required that the bride wash and dry her hair the day prior. She left it dry and as is for me the day of her appointment. I went in with a 1 inch curling iron and curled medium pieced sections around the barrel. A bit of twisting with some hidden bobby pins throughout allowed me to create the fullness around the crown and sides of the hair.
