Lala’s Tips For This Style:

  • If she doesn’t have naturally curly hair, the secret to creating natural-looking curls is to use a 3.8″ curling iron on thicker sections. If the sections are too thin, you’ll end up with very small, tight curls.

 

  • To keep the curls intact, curl the hair in a bricklay pattern. This way, there won’t be any demarcation lines AND there will be no need for teasing/backcombing.

 

  • Always brush the product into the hair before curling it, otherwise the hairspray will end up being burned onto the barrel of the curling iron and the curls won’t last.

 

  • To add a little bit of volume at the root, overdirect each section at the crown area while curling.

Christi’s Tips For This Style:

  • Creating twists in the crown area with tied knots for the bun (instead of tightly curling the whole head) can help create visual texture while saving time.

 

  • Use straight pins to temporarily map out the shape of the style. Once you’re happy with it, secure it in place with bobby pins.

 

  • Alternate working from the left and the right sides to create visual balance.

 

  • It’s important to smooth flyaways as you work for a polished end result while also adding texture for volume and fullness. Christi applies amika Thicc Volumizing Base every time she starts on a new twisted section, then she’ll apply amika Vandal Volume Powder Spray when creating the bun to ensure it lasts all night.

Alexandra’s Tips For This Style:

  • Remember to alternate sectioning from center to right and then left for a less uniformed look.

 

  • Always do the topsytail over, not under.

 

  • Use a texturizing spray like Matrix Biolage Texturizing Styling Spray when pinching and pulling the twists to add texture while also ensuring it holds.

 

  • Make sure the bride’s hair is free of frizz before creating this style for a sleek finish.

Tonya’s Tips For This Style: 

  • Teasing the first section of the twist is a MUST! 

 

  • Before braiding, prep your hands with Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Tame Wild to ensure your sections stay neat and frizz-free.

 

  • Similar texture throughout the whole style always wins, so if you create braids in the crown area, follow the same technique in the bun.

 

Products Used:

  • Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Tame Wild
  • Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ SESSION LABEL Powder Cloud
  • Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Freeze Pump Spray

Heather’s Tips For This Style:

  •  Smooth everything first with a large barrel curling iron, then backcomb, smooth and pull apart each section to create texture and fullness.

 

  • If your style needs a little something extra, fishtails are always a great accent braid choice.

 

Products Used:

  • Oribe Superfine Hair Spray
