Buns are probably the most popular wedding hairstyle! But if you are planning for a bridal hairstyle and looking for options that are neat and allows one to wear a veil uninterrupted then a low updo is the best option. Low updos allows one to keep the tresses away from the face and also add a funky quotient to your bridal look.
Low Updo Choices
If you are on a lookout for low updos for the D-day then check the list that shortlists the most popular updo hairstyles just for you.
The first thought when one says updo is a chignon! Elegant and a classic choice, to make the perfect low chignon one needs to start by pulling back the hair into a ponytail at the nape of the neck, Next, secure the ponytail in place and then start twisting the hair and form a bun that is secured with hair clips and pins.
While creating the low chignon, the bride has two choices – middle parting or no parting. While the middle parting is more popular and considered a more classic choice, the no parting look can make your look voluminous. So, if you have thinning hair then the no parting option is a better choice.
To create a no parting chignon, make sure that you use a texturizing hairspray onto the damp hair. Next, blow it dry while sectioning the hair at the crown. Backcomb and teasing can help you add volume at the crown before you gather the hair back into a low chignon.
Side Parted Braided Ponytail
A super chic option, this is a great look for brides who want to look simple yet stylish on the wedding day. To create the look, part the hair into two different sections and start cornrow braiding the sections starting at the parting and going all the way till the nape of the neck.
For brides who are willing to look messy and sexy, this is an ideal choice. Start by twisting the locks inwards and securing each twist with bobby pins.
Next, take the rest of the hair and twist it loosely and pin it at the nape. Let the tendrils run loose and cascade down – this gives an ideal messy look.
Another elegant option is French braided bun. Start by combing out all the tangles in the hair and part the hair. Next, make French braids on each side of the parting, starting at the hairline and working towards the ears. Once the braids are done, fasten it with elastic bands and make two pigtails. Now coil each pigtail and secure it into buns pinned with clips and bobby pins.
If you are bored with the regular buns and chignon, then you can make your bridal bun look different by adding a bump to the traditional low updo.

Next, use a round brush to add volume and lift up the hair at the crown.
Create a bump by using the sectioned hair at the crown. Use a curling iron to create the bump and then by backcombing it you can add more volume. Smoothen the top of the hair by applying a hair gel and secure it bobby pins. The key to make a perfect bump for low updo is to create it near the crown.
