French twist

Chic and sophisticated, the French twist is the simple bridal updo that will add that refined detail to your wedding day look. Embellish your twist with some decorative hair accessories to emphasise the simple beauty of wearing your wedding hair up.

Create silky smooth hair at your crown and let your ponytail tumble loosely down your back for an updo that strikes a harmonious balance for your special day.

Tip: Before you sweep your hair into a ponytail, create textured waves in your hair for loose, breezy ripples that won’t drop.

Bouffant

A variation on the classic beehive, the bouffant is a glamorous retro look that’ll add vintage-inspired volume to your bridal updo. Long favoured on the catwalk and a staple of dressed up street style, a graceful pinned-up twist on the bouffant will give you a stunning wedding day style. 

Tip: Use the ghd tail comb to gently back comb and elevate your hair.


Twisted low bun

A twisted low bun strikes the perfect balance between straightforward styling and bridal updo perfection. A loose twist combined with the classic elegance of a low bun will create a fuss-free look that’ll sit perfectly with a traditional theme for your nuptials.
