1.The Light and Airy ‘Do

Thinking of keeping things simple for your wedding? Consider this free-flowing hairstyle. This look is so easy to create on your own where you can remove hairstylist from your wedding budget and allocate the funds to something else, like your gorgeous dress? When creating this look, we suggest using a wash and care system that will help retain moisture in your hair without compromising body. Editor’s pick: Suave Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Moisturizing Body Shampoo & Suave Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Moisturizing Body Conditioner. After washing and conditioning your hair, prep your hair with a heat protection, then create touchable waves with a flat iron and set the look by spraying some hairspray throughout your finished ‘do.

2. The Romantic Twisted Updo

This romantic look reminds us of the dreamy half-updo twisted style that was created for the Charles Youssef SS17 collection. And since we’ve got the inside scoop on creating the runway look, why not reuse it for your big day? Before creating your style wake up your texture with a salt spray like Suave Professionals Texturizing Sea Salt SprayStarting from the top of your hair, begin twisting small sections of hair, coiling them against your head and pinning in place. Continue this method until you’ve reached the bottom and set this look in place with a firm hold hairspray.

It’s not every bride that wants to turn her beauty look into an entire production. Keep it simple with this chic and classy updo style. To jazz the look up just a teeny bit, give your style some height at the crown. Steal some tips from our beehive tutorial to learn how you can create this look.

4. Long Layered Waves

Although we’re looking for ways to cut cost when it comes to creating your own bridal hairstyle, there are some things you cannot skimp on like a proper cut. Go to a stylist with clean hair to get a layered cut and style the look on your own. See what we did there? You’re only paying to get a haircut, not for washing and not for styling! Score! When you get home, practice creating the wavy look you want with different heat styling tools. Here’s a tip: Use a hair wand on one side, and a flat iron on the other side and compare the two looks. Whichever look you love best is the winner!

Yes, your favorite updo ponytail hairstyle is a great style idea for your wedding. However, spruce it up a bit by adding some extra length for a fuller and thicker look. Go easy on the styling products to keep your pony light and fluffy. Set with a hairspray like TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Flexible Finish Hairspray.
