Wedding Hairstyle of the Week: Romantic Chignon

A hairdo that’s perfect for a wedding set in a field of flowers

Last week, I posted a beach-appropriate wedding hair idea for a bride-to-be. We’ve got another hair query this week — this time, the bride is getting married in the countryside.

A local bride asks…

“I’m planning a rustic wedding in a fabulous refurbished barn. It’s the perfect setting: we’ll be sitting in a field of wildflowers, which will all be in bloom. What kind of hairstyle will suit my wedding?”

The Wedding Guru says…

A rustic wedding calls for a romantic and feminine updo. Follow these steps:

  1. Wash your hair the day before — this gives your scalp a chance to produce enough of the natural oils that will help your hairstyle to hold
  2. The morning of your big day, put some styling mousse into your (damp) hair to hold the curl and maintain volume
  3. Use a curling iron to shape loose waves with the top and front sections of your hair
  4. Next, divide your hair into three sections; gather the middle section into a low undone bun. Keep everything in place with bobby pins
  5. Taking the sections that are left, loosely pin the strands into the bun. This creates a “loose tuck” effect
  6. Finish off the look with some pretty flowers
