Expect to See Updo Hairstyles at the Royal Wedding

Expect to See Updo Hairstyles at the Royal Wedding Kate Middleton and Prince William will get married this week in the 'royal wedding'.
This week, the world's attention shifts to London for the royal wedding.  Cameras will be focused not only on Kate and Wills, but also all of the famous attendees.  We expect to see many of the A-listers sporting sweet, carefree trendrils streaming from their effortless-looking updos.

Think Jen Garner :

While you know she spent hours in a salon chair, this is a look easily duplicated in a number of minutes.  It's just a low, messy chignon.  This look will work best on long, gently wavy hair.

To get this look:

2. If you have stick straight hair, you can now use a curler on the ends of your hair.  Try for big, loose curls--tight, sausage-like curls are a little too prom, even if that's your ultimate destination.  Trust me.

3.  Gather hair into a low, loose ponytail (leave a few waves to frame the face for Jen's look).  Leave the elastic relatively loose on the hair, and use bobby pins to secure it to your head.

4.  Loop individual sections of hair around your ponytail's base, pinning loops into a loose bun (make sure you use bobby pins the same color as your hair).  If you have too many loose ends once you've pinned all sections, don't fret.  It's supposed to look sort of messy.  It seems that Jen's stylist pinned the loose ends beneath the ponytail base, so if you have enough length to tuck them under, go ahead.

Enjoy the royal wedding, and keep your eye out for loose updos!
