Backstage at Zac Posen in September it was love at first sight. Odile Gilbert created whimsical frothy up ‘do’s adorned randomly with silk flowers. For all you readers engaged right now, this is perfect wedding hair if ever I saw it.

To get the look I backbrushed the front section to create a soft quiff then randomly twisted and pinned my hair up, manipulating it to create the shape I wanted. In hindsight I probably should have doused my day-old hair with dry shampoo to give it a more dry, wispy texture.

In the absence of silk flowers, I used real ones and placed them haphazardly throughout.

I really liked the finished effect. A couple of my colleagues commented on how pretty my hair looked (it’s usually beachy, and dare I say it tangled). It was also surprisingly easy, but I wasn’t trying too hard – if you do choose this as a potential wedding hairstyle – enlist an expert unless you’re calm under pressure.
