Kaitlyn Bristowe sported a sideswept updo on the June 8 episode of ‘The Bachelorette’ we want to copy ASAP. With undone waves, Kaitlyn’s half updo brought a taste of modern sophistication to her look that’s perfect for attending weddings this summer.
Kaitlyn Bristowe, 29, may have just gone on our favorite date yet in Bachelor–Bachelorette history, in one of our favorite formal hairstyles. For her one-on-one date, Kaitlyn and Jared got a private tour of the Temple of Dendur in NYC’s Metropolitan Museum of Art before a helicopter ride around the city.
To get Kaitlyn’s half updo for wedding season, add a bit of grip to your hair while it’s still damp with a volumizing mousse, then blow dry your hair. Run a one-inch curling iron through sections of the hair, concentrating on creating texture rather than perfect curls. Next bring the right half of your hair over to meet the left, using bobby pins in the shade closest to your natural hair color to set it in place. For extra hold, finish with a texturizing hairspray like Bumble and Bumble Cityswept Finish.
For the rest of her over-the-top date look, Kaitlyn wore a long sleeved, sheer black gown with a plunging neckline. To accessorize the look, she wore a stunning diamond necklace, bracelet, ring and earrings courtesy of Neil Lane. Kaitlyn kept her makeup simple with a bronzed glow, soft shimmering smokey eye and glossy pink lips.
