Tight Low Bun

Try a tight low bun with a middle parting for a clean and contemporary look. To keep it super sleek and shiny, a flat iron and glossy styling products are used to smooth out any flyaways. This style is perfect for a more modern bride who wants a seamless, pulled-back style.

Classic Balerina Low Bun

The classic ballerina bun is an elegant and understated choice for brides - the perfect balance of sophistication and simplicity. It can be dressed with a few sparkling clips or a simple ribbon, and a few curls or strands around the face will soften the look.

Low Bun for Asian Brides

For Asian brides, a low bun with a sleek middle parting makes an excellent base for traditional jewellery. To create this style, part your hair down the middle and pull the sides into a low bun at the nape of your neck.
