As you probably know, planning a wedding is hard work! From booking the venue to locking in the catering, it can be stressful to try to get everything done in time. But one of the biggest stressors is figuring out the perfect bridal hairstyle. Whether you plan on doing your hair yourself or seeing a professional, it’s important to have a style you love. This easy bridal hairstyle tutorial will show you the tools you need and the steps to take for a gorgeous wedding day look!
What you’ll need:
Step 1 – Prep hair
You’ll want to start with hair that isn’t freshly washed. Preferably a day or so will have passed since the last wash. This will help the style hold better. When you do wash it, use Volumizing Mousse to add body and texture. On dry hair, spray Flexible Hold Hairspray for heat protection and a workable hold.
Step 2 – Add some loose curls
Using the Tony Odisho Infrared Curling Iron, create loose curls. They don’t have to be perfect since they’ll end up in an up-do later on. When you’re done curling, comb out hair.
Step 3 – Pull back section of hair
Separate hair, leaving two sections in front. Take the section of the hair in the back and center, and pull it into a loose ponytail. Hold in place with a small rubber band that matches the hair.
Step 4 – Flip ponytail inward
Gently create opening above rubber band, then push the bottom of the ponytail into that gap and pull through.
Step 5 – Pull back remaining sections of hair
Pull the last two sections of hair back and tie together using another small rubber band, to create another layer of texture.
Step 6 – Tuck ponytail to create bun
Tuck the ponytail up through the opening above the rubber band like you did in Step 5, but this time don’t pull the hair all the way through. Nestle it into that section to turn it into an updo.
Step 7 – Finish with hairspray
Use the Strong Hold Hairspray to finish your updo and hold it in place all day long!
(Optional) Step 8 – Add shine using 3-in-1 Mist
3-in-1 Mist is the perfect addition to a finished bridal updo because it adds a natural, lightweight shine while protecting your hair from UV rays.
And that’s it! This easy, elegant updo makes the perfect bridal hairstyle, whether you do it yourself, get help from a friend, or hire a professional. It also won’t tack on too much time to getting ready for your big day, which is always a plus. For more hair inspiration and hair care tips, check out our blog!
