DIY Wedding Updo

Wedding hair is easier than you might think. Learn how to style your hair with this DIY updo lesson!

The Side Chignon

This fresh, easy style is as modern as it is timeless: Low-swept curls recall a classic chignon, while an asymmetrical silhouette lends a flirty vibe.

Step 1

Using a round brush, blow-dry hair smooth and straight, focusing on the top sections.

Step 2

Once dry, use a large-barrel curling iron to create waves from the ears down

Step 3

Build height and volume at the crown by teasing hair gently with a fine-tooth comb

Step 4

Gather hair into a low ponytail. Twist it along the nape of your neck, pinning as you go.

Step 5

Once you reach your ear, shape the remaining hair into curls, and pin them back over the twist

Step 6

Spritz strands in place with full blown volume lifting hairspray

Step 7

To add texture, gently curl and scrunch the wispy ends with your fingertips

And voila, you’re fabulous!
