Down with the Updo: A Case for Let-Loose Curls

 Sure, few life occasions hand us the opportunity to undertake an updo. Traditionally, formal affairs call for tucked away tresses or elaborate entanglements. And today, according to Pinterest, the more mind boggling the bun or braid the better. Admittedly, (as you’ll find on Riley & Grey’sHair & Makeup board) we’re often of that camp.

But isn’t there something to be said for simplicity? And if this is the age of the man bun, and droves of dudes are perfecting their updos (a practice we fully encourage here at Riley & Grey) then shouldn’t ladies at least consider the comparably lax approach of letting their own hair down? Okay, enough with the rhetorical quesitons.

We’re just going to say “yes.” Yes, you should most definitely consider a down-do for the big day, and if we haven’t already convinced you, let these low maintenance, high impact curls from Brooklyn salon Sara June drive the point home. Effortlessly ethereal, dress them up with a diadem or just go Godiva and bare your locks  in all their unreined glory. Either way, these tousled waves will take you from ceremony to reception without incessant prodding, pinning, or touchups. What greater luxury is there? Toss the hair ties, free your mind, and enjoy your moment.
