With the upcoming royal wedding on their minds, hairstylists Mika Rummo and Nikki Ray of Salon AKS in New York City were inspired to create this glam updo around a whimsical, English-wedding appropriate feathered hat. To create the look, they started by smoothing a quarter-size dollop of styling cream through the hair for shine and control. Then they created an exaggerated deep side part, and brushed both sides back and securing for a tight, sleek effect. To create a base for the bun, the loose hair was gently teased, then lightly brushed into a classic bun shape. The hat was placed slightly off center, about two inches away from the hairline. (Note: when wearing a fascinator with a veil, you want the veil to just cover the tip of your nose.) I can definitely see some of Kate and Will's wedding guests (perhaps Victoria Beckham?) pulling off an elegant, high-style look like this.
