5 DAYS IN HAIR
5 bridal up-dos from Lily Collins
By Elizabeth Odey, 17 April 2017
If feeling like a princess on your big day (or any day for that matter) is the ultimate end goal, then who better to take hair-spiration from than Snow White’s brunette beauty, Lily Collins. From sleek and low, to big and beautiful, Lily knows good hair. Mirror mirror on the wall, which up-do is the fairest of them all…
If you’re leaning towards a statement chandelier earring or lush backless gown for the big event, a high up-do is the ideal hairstyle solution. Give the look serious Rapunzel vibes by wrapping your up-do in fine braids – we recommend stocking up on the bobby pins.
Curled, classy and oh-so-shiny. Lily’s look is reminiscent of first lady Jackie Kennedy (some may say, America’s princess…). This timeless look is perfect for shoulder length hair. Fear not long-haired ladies, the look can also be achieved with some tactical tucks, and lots of hairspray.
Big day, big do
Is it just us, or is Lily taking a style cue from the princess of pop, Adele? We’re starting to see a theme here… the 60s-winged eyeliner and bountiful beehive is the perfect look for a vintage-inspired wedding. Replace the black band with an embellished pearl headpiece, and you’ve nailed the look.
So you’ve found a show-stopping dress? Or jewellery that’d cause a magpie to swoon? Make sure all eyes are on the prize by keeping your hairstyle minimal and sleek with a smooth low bun. Vibing a veil? This is the perfect style to hold your lace in place.
If you’re going for that effortlessly elegant princess look, this style takes the hairstyle-cake. Take a small section from the front and loosely twist, then take a second small section and twist into that – and twist, and twist, and twist and tuck. (Let any loose strands just do their thing). Someone get this woman a tiara, stat.
