Modern hair styles for the blushing bride

Ever been stuck deciding how to wear your hair for that special event…or even your upcoming wedding day? Jessica Metivier, our beauty expert, has the perfect solution that's free and easy!

"Tired of traditional curls or up-dos when you need to step it up in the hair department? I'll show you a modern look that's perfect for any special occasion – even the big day," says Jessica.

Newly engaged, Elizabeth Hanson wants to test-drive a hairstyle for her upcoming nuptials on the beach.

"My trick is a hair style that's soft and sexy, but still tidy and formal at the same time," says Jessica.

First, gather all of your hair into a low, side ponytail, sitting toward the back of your shoulder as opposed to the front. Firmly secure this with a hair tie that mimics your natural hair color.

Taking the center section of the ponytail, gather into a fairly messy bun. This is the piece that you're going to build around, allowing less time curling and adding more volume in your style.

Use a curling iron to curl the remainder of your ponytail, and then start to pin the pieces up using bobby or hair pins. When you're finished, set with a light hairspray for extra hold.

A sexy, modern and formal hairstyle is not impossible to achieve at home! Play with different takes on this style, and you'll look amazing on your wedding day  or at your next event!
