Pair your dream dress with a heavenly hairdo that sets off your neckline – and you! – to the max
Your hairstyle: a classic ballerina bun high on the head.
Here’s how: brush the length tightly back and secure into a high ponytail, then wind into a bun shape and secure with Kirby grips. For a supersized bun, attach a fake ponytail and carefully roll it around a doughnut before fixing. Pin faux flowers into one side of the do.

Your hairstyle: a relaxed French pleat with height on top.
Here’s how: make a side parting, then brush freshly blow-dried hair back into a low ponytail, keeping some lift on top. Backcomb the length, roll it into a chignon shape tucking the ends well in and fix. Tong your side fringe to add a gentle curl.
Your hairstyle: a classic half-up half-down do with fresh flowers.
Here’s how: Blow-dry hair using setting lotion, then loosely curl. Gently backcomb the crown and sides to give volume, then take sections on either side of the head above the ears, softly twist and pin at the back of the head. Allow a few tendrils to fall forward and finish with fresh flowers along the twisted strands.
Your hairstyle: a loose low updo accessorised by mini plaits.
Here’s how: make a centre parting then take a small section on either side at the top and plait it through. Gather up the rest of your hair into a low pony then curl and pin up loosely in a bun shape. Leave any strands that fall free during the day.
Your hairstyle: a cute curly mock bob worn to the side.
Here’s how: work a volumising mousse through damp hair then blow-dry smooth with a paddle brush. Ease into a side parting. Lightly tong all around then pull the length to one side. Curl it under in small sections and pin into a bob shape finishing with a generous spritz of hairspray.
Your hairstyle: a big bouncy ponytail.
Here’s how: brush hair back tightly into a high pony. Fix on a fake ponytail that perfect matches your hair colour and backcomb gently for extra height. Hide any join by winding a small piece of your own hair around the hairband, then give the length some sexy swing by using a large-barrelled tong just on the ends.
Your hairstyle: a bouncy retro blow-dry.
Here’s how: Blow-dry using a round brush then mist sections with root-lifting spray and wind around a large tong. Ease out the tong but keep the curl in place using grips and blast with the hairdryer. When hair is completely cool, unleash your curls and finger-comb through around a centre parting.
Your hairstyle: sophisticated side bun.
Here’s how: set the hair on medium rollers and sweep the majority into a side ponytail making sure that there’s still some volume on the top and sides. Barrel curl the remaining sections and gently pin into a loose bun.
Your hairstyle: An elegant, wavy side ponytail worn with sparkling jewels.
Here’s how: with a side parting, brush your hair over to one side then gather into a ponytail using a band that matches your hair colour. Plait it through, leave it to dry, and brush out to create a soft wave then push glitzy pins into the band.
