The crowning glory of every new bride is her adorned tresses and many brides choose the classic updo as the hairstyle of choice on her big day. Get ideas for your wedding hairstyle at the Great Bridal Expo featuring a New York style bridal fashion show and wedding event.
The Classic Updo
The updo is an elegant and timeless hairstyle featuring hair swept all the way or partially from the shoulders and arranged in a variety of styles from simple to elaborate twisted and braided arrangements. Beginning with the Ancient Greeks, the updo has endured throughout the ages as an enduring style of romance according to Eras of Elegance.
Draw inspiration for your updo from one of the many important historical periods showcasing the upward hairstyle including the Medieval, Renaissance, Elizabethan, Baroque, Georgian, Regency, Victorian and Edwardian eras. Types of updos include the bun, ponytail, beehive and French twist.
Bridal Hair Care Products
Conditioner
Beautiful hair begins weeks if not months before the wedding. Begin deep conditioning treatments as soon as possible. Select a product appropriate for your hair type or begin professional treatments. It is not advisable to deep condition your hair the day before or day of your wedding, the conditioner may prevent your style from holding.
Color
Never color your hair the day before the wedding, this is just asking for disaster. Consult with a professional hairstylist for a color plan months before your wedding. If you plan to color your own hair, choose the color in well in-advance and perform maintenance on the roots at least two weeks before the wedding.
