Elegant Updos For Mothers of the Bride and Groom

We’ll admit it, we’re a little biased, and we can’t help but love updos for mothers on wedding days! There’s so much going on during this time, between getting ready, staying on schedule, chatting with guests… We could go on! If you ask us, your hair blowing in your face is the last thing your mom wants to worry about during this exciting time.

Some mothers may want to receive an updo, but are concerned their hair isn’t long enough! The good news is, our hairstylists have many tricks up their sleeves. Even if your mother's hair is shorter than shoulder length, an updo is absolutely not out of the question!

For mothers with heavily layered cuts, a tousled updo is a fabulous option. For mothers with less layered haircuts, check out a chic chignon or a modern twist! Especially if your mother is rocking a high-neck or heavily decorated dress, we highly recommend she check out updo options for your wedding day.

Simple Hairstyles For Mothers of the Bride and Groom

Some mothers worry about changing up their hairstyle and going too far out of their comfort zone, and that is totally okay! Just like we tell our brides, we want the mothers to feel and look like themselves. If your mom has been wearing her hair the exact same way for as long as she can remember, then let’s stick with that hairstyle, but elevate it! If this section hits home for you and your moms, here are our suggestions.

Our artists provide thorough consultations for every party member receiving services. Ask your mom(s) to have photos ready (on their phones) of how they typically like to wear their hair. From here, our artists will duplicate their hairstyle using tools and products that will not only replicate their desired style, but also lengthen the life of it!

Can Mothers of the Bride and Groom Schedule a Trial?

The short answer is, yes! Our artists are able to facilitate hairstyling trials for any party member looking to receive them. Especially if your mom(s) are apprehensive about having a new person style their hair, we highly recommend them schedule a trial with us! Not only will a trial give your moms some ease of mind when it comes to achieving their desired hairstyle, but it will also give them an opportunity to become comfortable with your Updos For I Dos artist.
