A hairstyle that sits up off the scalp by an inch or more is either thick or has had some backbrushing.  Thus giving the style fullness, this further softens a formal coiffure which is already quite feminine.  This particular wedding updo is parted on the side with sections all being brushed back and ending up on the crown, pinned into a design of curls.  A large bun seems to adorn the top back of this model’s head indicating she has long, thick hair.  The curls that surround the bun appear to be a easy result from layers around the face.
