Let the enchanting spring weather inspire you to experiment with an up-do worthy of a garden fairy princess! The braided crown and romantic bun are both gorgeous springtime looks – the hardest part is deciding which style you prefer...
The Braided Crown
The hairstyle: There are two ways to go about creating a braided crown. You can start the plait at the hairline, or just make a low braid and wrap it around your head like a headband. Either way, both versions create a gorgeous face framing finish.
The style: This style is undoubtedly pretty but it's also a practical way to keep your hair off your face – try it if you have medium-length or longer hair. For something special, simply add in a unique accessory like a statement hair jewel.
What the editors say: Who needs a tiara when you can have a braided crown! The beauty of this hairstyle is it doesn't need to be pin-neat either – try styling it slightly loose and messy for a rocker chic vibe.
The Romantic Bun
The hairstyle: To create a whimsical romantic bun, use your fingers to loosely shape the hair into either a low or high bun. Don't be afraid to leave a few strands delicately dangling loose throughout the hairstyle to give it a relaxed feel.
The style: With a little extra definition, the romantic bun is the perfect occasion hairstyle – particularly for brides. The feminine style is flattering on round faces and works brilliantly on long or lob-length hair.
What the editors say: The romantic bun is a timeless look. However if you want to add a little 2016-edge, simply add a wet look effect to this up-do. Try misting on a finishing spray like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Shower Shine before creating the bun – the end result will be a neo-romantic super stylish style.
