I’ve been reading everything I can find on the weddingbee since H2B and I got engaged back in December and I discovered the site – it’s great! So decided tonight that I should bite the bullet and sign up so that I can benefit from some of the great advice that you girls have and join in the fun of the hive :o) I’ll introduce myself properly in the introductions thread.
The first thing I was hoping you ladies might be able to help me with was this hairstyle – I love it! I’ve also seen similar styles before – in old fashioned photos and movies I think – like early 19C or something? I love this version though, and what I want to do is be able to search the web for other similar styles – but I just don’t know what to search for! Does anyone know what this style is called??

I may be waay off here. But to me it looks like a loose & lopside french twist. I googled “loose french twist” and I think this pic looks close to yours. Both appear to have that “L” shape, with the expection of the loose hair in this pic.
Do you happen to have another angel of that pic? I’d be curious to see if it is in fact tucked like a french twist.

wow Annie AAA – good spot! In like 20 mins you’ve totally beaten my googling attempts! I don’t have any more pics unfortunately, wish I did. You might well be right though looking at the pic you posted. Wasn’t thinking of a french twist though; would love if the other side of it looked the same as this side, so the hair was swept up and then turned under if that makes any sense…

This might be considered a Chignon. pronounced “sheen-yon. There are different variations of it. You may want to try and email a hairstylist and see if they can come up with a name.

Think I agree with you precieuxny that I’ll have to ask the stylist in advance and see if she recognises it – I’d just like to have a few variants to show her! Will keep googling, might strike it lucky :o)
