Vintage Wedding Hair with Fingerwaves Inspired by Downton Abbey




I can't tell you how excited I was to create this hairstyle for Maggie for her wedding at Priston Mill near Bath., it's great to share these photos here on 'The Real Wedding Hair Blog'.


Maggie had a vintage wedding dress and had asked me to style her hair into a vintage up do with finger waves / Marcel Wave similar to the styles seen on dramas such as Downton Abbey and The Great Gatsby! I LOVE this sort of look and really think that a finger wave wedding hair style adds so much to the look of the vintage vibe.


Creating the fingerwaves is a real skill but one that I love to do, the above photos shows the wave being held into place with a clip whilst the hair sets into place. The back of the hair is curled and pinned up into an elegant curled chignon up style.



Sadly I didn't get chance to see Maggie in her wedding dress but I have just seen a quick sneak peek of the official photographers pictures HERE and she looked amazing!
