The Prettiest Wedding Updos

Wedding Updos Hairstyles

Whether you’re the bride or a guest, chances are you will be attending a wedding this season. Updos are the ultimate in glamorous hairstyles and when it comes to a wedding, nothing beats them. Pulling your hair away from your face is the chicest way to show off a smoky eye or a statement lip. We’ve got your A-list inspiration for the prettiest wedding updos this season.

LOW SLUNG BUN

For gals with thick hair, updos can be a physically heavy, time-consuming nightmare. However, it’s still possible to create the perfect wedding hair updo. A low-slung bun with loose tendrils is not only super sexy, but mega-easy and even works on second-day hair! Spritz blow-dried (or second-day) hair with Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Elastin Curls Tousle Spray for added fullness and hold before slinging it into a low ponytail with center part. Then create a bun just above your collar bone by twisting the pony and then wrapping the ends so that they cover the elastic, before pinning in place. Give any loose strands a quick twirl with a curling wand and set with Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Crystal Shine Hair Spray.

TEASED BUN

A bombshell bouffant is the ultimate in sexy glam when it comes to wedding updo hairstyles. Start with a blowout using Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Biotin+ Volume Mousse and a deep center part. Spray Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Biotin+ Volume Hair Spray onto your brush and brush your hair into a ponytail and secure with an elastic. Next, work some Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Satin Frizz Control Finishing Polish over your ponytail to add shine and begin to secure a bun with bobby pins. But, instead of tucking into the bun, leave the very ends of your hair hanging out and spray with Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Elastin Curls Tousle Spray. Tease the ends with a teasing comb for added texture and throw on a simple headband.

TEXTURED TOPKNOT

For an edgy take on the classic wedding updo with a more free-spirited, boho vibe, try the textured topknot. Start by sectioning your hair from the top of one ear to the top of the other ear. Take a two-inch section and wrap it around a curling wand, continuing in different directions throughout your entire head. The key is to make it look tousled and undone. Tilt your head back and smooth your hair into a perfect ponytail. Separate your ponytail into two pieces and literally knot the hair. Depending on the length of your hair, you can knot again. For more texture, tease the sections before you begin the knotting process. Secure your teased knots with bobby pins and finish your look with Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Biotin+ Volume Hair Spray. 

TWISTED PONY

For the artsy girl, the twisted pony is one of the best updo hairstyles for a wedding. Start with Schwarzkopf essence ULTIME Satin Frizz Straightening Spray and flat-iron your hair so it’s shiny and sleek before pulling it into an 80s-cheerleader-style high ponytail. Then randomly twist your hair and pin it to your head, using a gold barrette to secure the ends, leaving them out intentionally for added sleek texture. Finally, set your twisted pony with Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Crystal Shine Hair Spray.

Wedding season definitely involves stepping up your everyday hair look, and what better way than with beautiful wedding updos. With our how-to guide and your favorite Schwarzkopf ULTIME products, your updo will be just as easy as it is gorgeous!
