Before your big day, you want to make sure that your hair is the most beautiful you’ve ever seen it. Not only do you want to make a good impression on your guests, but you want to make a good impression to your soon-to-be husband as well. You need to decide if you want your hair down or an updo or a combination of both. It’s wise to choose a hairstyle that’ll last through your reception and the after party.
Half-Up Hair Wrap
To create this look, the first thing you need to do is prepare your roots by spraying hairspray for extra volume and hold. You’ll need to use a teasing brush to tease your hair from the front of your hairline to the crown of your head. Tease only one-inch sections at a time. Be sure to brush the hair from the mid-shaft to the root to create extra volume. Next, you’ll need to take an elastic band to create a half-up ponytail with the top half of your hair. Next, grab a one-inch section underneath the elastic band and wrap it loosely around the elastic to hide it. Next, pin the ends of the wrapped hair underneath the elastic.
First, separate your hair in three evenly sized low ponytails at the nape of your neck with elastic bands. You’ll want to use another small elastic band two inches above from the ends of your hair on each ponytail. Starting with the ponytail in the center, roll the bottom elastic band to the first elastic band to create a bun. You’ll need to pin the bun in place at the base of the ponytail. To finish the look, simply repeat these steps for the other ponytails.
If you want a natural look at your wedding, you should simply use a hair iron to straighten your hair. You’ll want to get your hair as straight as you can get it. After you straighten your hair, simply take a hair brush to smooth your hair as you have the elastic band in your hand. Once your hair is smooth, wrap the elastic band around at the length of the ponytail you prefer.
Messy Curly Updo
First, you’ll want to take a curling or straightening iron to curl every piece of hair on your head. After you finish curling your hair, simply take an elastic band and put it up in a loose ponytail. Next, you’ll want to take pieces of strands of hair out around your face to create the messy look you’re looking for.
These hairstyles are some of the most common hairstyles for weddings. Whether you choose to go with the messy updo or the triple bun, you’ll shock your guests and your husband-to-be. Just be sure to straighten or curl your hair to perfection to create a smooth, sleek look. Finish your look off with some hairspray to keep it in place all day long. You’ll be looking flawless.
