Kate Middleton stole the show with her elegantly braided updo. It complimented her lace-y flowing gown by adding texture and beautiful contrast against smooth strands. A bit of volume in the front and crown bring loosen up this hair style so instead of seeming uptight, it’s soft and dreamy. The sides are French braided then crossed and interwoven in the back to anchor a low-slung textured bun. She’s setting the standard for brides world wide!

Whether your wedding style is modern beach chic (far left), rustic romantic (middle) or vintage classic (far right) braids can make your wedding day hair style memorable. Lots of brides and bridesmaids are loving this look, they realize it adds volume, depth and takes a basic updo to a whole other level. Braids together with curls make fine hair look full and voluminous and are the perfect canvas to create a piece of art in already thick hair. Braids can also really bring out hair color (cut makes a big difference too!), plan ahead to have your hair colored or highlighted to maximize this style.

Thanks for stopping by, happy Monday!
