Bridal Hair Style
This bridal hair style holds up so well. You will probably find that it is still intact the next morning! But, if you do decide to take your hair down for the honeymoon, you will end up with beautiful, bouncy curls - definitely a wedding day winner!
Submit a photo of your bridal hairstyle here. Materials Needed:
- 1 Rubber band the shade of your hair color
- Bobby pins - lots of them
- Either a high-end hair flat-iron that curls - such as the GHD, or a curling iron with a medium-sized barrel.
- Optional: Hair jewels, bobby pins that sparkle, veil or tiara
Hair Preparation: If your hair is naturally curly, straighten it first. Make sure the hair is clean and completely dry.
Part hair 1-2 inches in from the edge of your hair line around your entire head. Pull the hair in the middle up into a ponytail on the back-side of the crown of your head.
Take a 1-2 inch section of hair from the ponytail, and curl it near the base of the ponytail with your curling iron, or your flat-iron. This will shape the hair into the barrel curl.
Wrap the curl around your fingers, making sure that the ends of the hair are tucked into the curl. Bobby pin the base of the barrel curl to the hair on your scalp.
Work your way clock-wise around the base of the ponytail doing steps 2 and 3 until you have barrel-curled and bobby-pinned all of the hair in the ponytail.
Pull up a 1-2 inch section of hair from the hair hanging out of the ponytail. Comb it up so it is smooth and bobby pin this strand under the other barrel curls. (The strand should be bobby-pinned in the middle).
Take the end of the strand and curl it as before and make a barrel curl with your fingers. This time, slip the curl off of your fingers so that it is sideways (slip your fingers out of the curl vertically, instead of horizontally) and bobby pin in place.
Continue to take 1-2 inch sections of hair from the hair you left out of the ponytail, and bobby-pin these sections up into barrel curls - doing steps 2 and 3. Surround the hair in the ponytail with more sideways barrel curls until all hair is pinned up.
When you get to your bangs, pull them over to one side and then direct them up into a barrel curl.
Mist your head with hairspray and then place your tiara in front of the updo. If you have a simple veil that attaches with combs, attach the veil behind the barrel curls in the back of your head. Add hair jewels to your bridal hair style all over your head - either on the barrel curls themselves, or on the hair that is taut.
