Messy Updos: Into It or Over It?

My official apologies to the royal family for mentioning Meghan Markle twice today - but it's got to be said. Smiley tongue I thought intentionally messy buns were just a thing you obsessed over in middle school, but apparently they are also a style you shell out big bucks for on your wedding day! While I'm very glad we've moved away from over-styled prom-like hairstyles (especially for bridesmaids), I'm not sure how I feel about "I woke up like this" wedding day hair!

Tell me what you think! Messy wedding updos - are you into it or over it ?

    I won't have a messy do on my wedding day. Relaxed is ok but I don't think I'd like messy too much... I, however, want sleek and glamourous

    I like it, but it has to still be artful. Not "I rolled out of bed and into my dress" messy.

    Definitely into it!
    My hair is the most uncooperative ball of brown ever grown on a head. A perfectly done, not a hair out of place do stays for like a minute, even with the strongest salon sprays and products. Heck yes! I'm embracing the mess!

    Over it, I want my hair up but not messy. As the night goes on I know it will get messy and so I don’t want it to be double messy and knotty. I also hate back combing.

    I’ve personally never like messy buns for anything except when I pull my hair out of my way. I wouldn’t wear one out the house so def not for my wedding.

    I'm considering it for a destination wedding on the beach in the sun but only cause I want my dark hair off my neck in the heat and don't want it to be too formal. But only if it's gonna be appropriate for the style of the event. For indoor weddings I say no way!!

    Over it. I wouldn't want a messy bun for my wedding. You want to look sleek and elegant and the messy bun makes it more casual.

    Over it for a wedding. I like them in general but not for weddings.

    100% agree with this. I can't even pull off the messy bun look, so forget me trying it on my big day haha

    I agree! Relaxed updo, great! Messy bun hair like mine is at this very second, unacceptable lol.

    I think there is a big difference between a "messy updo" and a "relaxed updo"... when girls do messy buns any other day of the year, it's "messy hair, don't care"... so why doesn't that same mentality translate to your wedding day?

    A soft, curly, relaxed updo can still look polished and purposeful... without being an "every hair in place" pulled back updo.

    Messy buns are for days you forgot to set your alarm. Not your wedding day.

    Into it to a degree, as long as it doesn't look like you literally just rolled out of bed. I don't have the hair type to pull it off (Big, curly, thick hair), but someone with tamable waves can definitely rock it!

    Into it! It looks almost more 'natural' than a polished look, which is something I prefer!

    Into it! Depending on your theme, dress, venue and just your personality in general! Your wedding should be a reflection of you, and if you would never wear your hair in a tighter, clean, hairsprayed up-do why would you on your wedding day?

    Over it! It looks messy and like you don't care what you look like! Of all days to look like a mess - people decide to look like that on one of the biggest days of their life.... it's almost sad really...

    Into it! I absoloutely love them. It's a style that gives us the chance to not have to worry about our hair length/layers.
