Easy 3 Step Updo

My cousin was getting married in Florence, Italy, and had some issues finding a hair dresser to do her hair on the big day. She had a trial session the week before and it just didn’t go as planned. So she asked if I could do her hair. Of course I said yes, even though I was feeling the pressure of not having her hair turn out perfect. Well wedding day finally came around, and lets just say I had to pull some serious “Macgyver” moves, but it all worked out and she loved the updo I did for her.

After a number of trials we finally got her hair looking just right and she was feeling so beautiful and ready to slay. I left her bridal suite with 40 mins to get myself showered, makeup’d and hair ready to go. My thoughts were along the lines of, ” how the heck am I gonna pull this off?”  …not to mention my husband asking every two seconds, ‘are you ready yet?’, and ‘why are you doing your hair over, for the third time?’

Thankfully this hairdo came to mind, and it was perfect for my whole look. Ladies, if you’re strapped for time and need a easy updo, this look is a great option.

You can do this look in under five mins.
