This seriously high-volume updo leaves plenty of room to pin a veil at the back and, as the bride-to-be in the photo above proves, it also looks gorgeous with some glittering accessories!

Find out how to get the look with our tutorial below so you can try it on for size ahead of your big day. Who knows, this hairstyle could be "the one!"

Step one: Brush your hair through then spray the roots with a volumizing hairspray. Massage your scalp with your fingertips and tease the hair close to the root if necessary to build some extra height.

Step two: Next, brush all of your hair up into a high ponytail and tie.

Step three: Split the pony into a several large sections then loop and pin them around the hair tie, camouflaging it as you go. To make things easier, you can curl each piece with a large curling iron before you roll and pin the hair up.

Step three: Spray your new style with lashings of finishing spray and you're all set!
