Half-Up Wedding Hairstyle With Waves

Illusion + Half Updo
An illusion neck (one with a sheer fabric panel extending from the bust to the collar) offers some versatility. If the illusion part of the bodice is beaded, try a full-on updo to show off the details. But if it's plain sheer fabric, a half-up/half-down style is a nice compromise. For this look, have your stylist tease at the roots to create lift, then twist the top portion into a mini bun. Gown, Style N7009, $5,720, Angel Sanchez.
