Wearing a Hat With an Updo

Dressy hats, worn with updo hairstyles are very popular at sophisticated and elegant weddings. A very classy and sophisticated look is created with a brimless hat worn with an updo. You can create it by pulling all of your hair back away from your face to create the updo. The hat serves the same purpose as your bangs, so smooth your bangs back away from your face. You can form a french twist or catch your hair with an elastic band and form it into a smooth bun or a cluster of curls. The hat is tipped forward onto the forehead with the back just above the updo. The hat should become part of the entire look instead of an extra add on.

For a stylish flare when wearing a hat with your wedding attire, tip it to the side. This is often more attractive with certain face shapes. Try tipping it at different angles before settling on your final style.

Tip your brimmed hat to the side, with your 'prettier' eye on the open side. Tipping the hat will draw attention to the eye that is on the open side.

To get the look, sweep your hair to one side and achor it with an elastic band or with bobby pins. Use the ends to form a cluster of curls or comb it into a sleek bun just above and slightly behind your ear. The curls or bun should be placed up high enough to meet the brim of your hat. If it isn't high enough, try to increase the size of the curl cluster or bun to fill in the space.

Before deciding on one style, try different variations: You may want to create a slanted french twist or a roll in the back with the ends extending up and over, forming the curls at the ear. This is helpful for heavy hair.
