Wedding Up do

Yesterday afternoon I was a little at a loss of what to do with myself so decided to recreate my up do from my cousins wedding.

Firstly I curled my hair with these Babyliss HotSticks.  I picked these up form eBay for the 'pricey' sum of £15. I love the little book that came with as its so representative of 80s hair, it just reminded me of leg warmers and florescent colours. I've tried pin curls but still haven't got to grips with that so these are a quick alternative. Here's me patiently waiting for them to cool ....

....and then the resultant mop when I took them out.

I then rolled the back to one side using a hair rat. Styled the front middle section into a large roll and took sections from the side and formed two small pin curls on the side and top. Finally I added this gorgeous flower that I got from Belle Blossoms. Excuse all the flyaways .. as I didn't completely tame them as all I was aiming to do was recreate it.


  1. Looks good! I'm really unimaginative when it comes to up dos. And also have problems calling a hair r*t a hair r*t because I'm terrified of r*ts!

    1. humm.. how about a hair mouse? they are slightly cuter than r*ts .. ;)

  2. Hello!

    I love it!a black rose would be gorgeous in your copper hair as well:)
