    This hairstyle has romantic appeal. It would be beautiful for a spring or summer wedding. Updos are a great way to go in general for weddings, because they keep your hair under control through all of the dancing and partying of an unforgettable wedding night. They also allow the bride to show off her beautiful face and jewelry as well.
