DIY Wedding Hair

DIY Wedding Hair: Steps 1-2

1. Curl your hair. For a tight curl that will last, pin every curl up. Before releasing the curls, make sure they've cooled down and spray some light hairspray on them.
2. Make a side parting, and section off the front hair until just behind the ear. This will be braided later.

3. Gather the sides of the hair into the middle, and bobby-pin in place. Make sure you keep some volume on the crown.
4. Start pinning the curls up. Arrange them nicely, making sure they get nice, looped shapes.

6. Release the front section.

7. Make a three-strand French braid starting from the side part. If you have a fringe, incorporate it into the braid. When you run out of hair to incorporate, continue braiding a normal three-strand braid. Gently pull on the sides of the braid to maximize volume.

8. Drape the braid around the pinned-up curls, and secure it with a bobby pin.

Add a hair accessory like flowers or a veil, if you'd like, or leave it as is. It's your day!
