Romantic Updos with a Modern Twist

Updos have always been a popular choice for weddings, and this season is no different. However, the classic chignon is getting a modern update. Think looser styles with soft tendrils framing the face, or braided accents for added texture and detail. These updos are perfect for brides and bridesmaids who want a timeless look with a touch of personality.
