Kate Middleton’s Baptism Updo
At the christening of Princess Charlotte everyone looked their best, from Prince George to the Queen. The whole affair had a vintage feel, especially when they arrived with the old royal carriage and the christening gown of Princess Charlotte. Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate to her friends, completed the picture.
It is not a royal event without a distinctive hat! Of course, wearing a hat means that the details of Kate Middleton’s baptism are concentrated on the back of her head. This would also be a wonderful choice for a bridal hairstyle with a pillbox hat or veil.
From the side, the updo is a Gibson role. Kate’s lush hair means that this style is not as tight as it can sometimes be, but has a lot of volume. This is actually a simple look to style yourself.
First, gather your hair into a low ponytail and tie it with a rubber band. Pull the rubber band down the ponytail to create some space between the rubber band and the scalp. Next, create a space in the hair just above the rubber band so that the hair sits in it. Turn the ponytail and pull the rubber band over the twisted hair. Now roll the ponytail and insert it while turning your hair. Once all hair is trapped, attach it with hairpins.
And one last look at the retro updo. This would be perfect for a vintage bridal hairstyle, even with the hat on. Check out this similar version with flowers.
Or try your own Gibson bag. It takes a bit of practice, but can be a nice everyday hairstyle and a fancier alternative to a ponytail or bun.
