Wedding Hair - Updos vs Downdos

Updos v downdos – how to wear your hair

One of the biggest decisions you’ll make during the wedding planning process is your wedding hair and whether to opt for an updo or a downdo. Yes, even more important than where to seat aunt Margaret.



Bigger than whether or not to serve champagne before or after the ceremony. It’s even greater than the wedding itself. Well, almost. And why we hear you ask? Because what could be worse than a bad hair day on your Big Day?

Downdos are great if…


  • Your hair does as it’s told, even when you haven’t had a lot of sleep
  • It’s great at holding its style. Rain ain’t got nothing on you
  • You have classic boho-chic style
  • Your hair is too short to be a bother on hot days
  • You have picture-perfect hair like Cheryl Cole



Updos are great if…


  • You have hair that likes to do its own thing
  • It has a tendency to go a bit flat/frizzy/scraggly
  • You’re opting for a sleek and sophisticated affair
  • You’re getting married on a nice hot summer’s day
  • You don’t have picture-perfect hair like Cheryl Cole
