How to Create The Bridal Hair Updo:


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 a Volumizing Mousse to add body and texture. On dry hair, spray a 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 an 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 a 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 up-do.

Step 8– Add shine using 3-in-1 Mist

3-in-1 Mist is the perfect addition to a finished bridal up-do because it adds a natural, lightweight shine while protecting your hair from UV rays.
