get inspired : effortless buns …

texturedbun

One of my favourite looks from WeddingBonanza15 of brides is this beautiful textured bun I did for a beautiful bride early in the summer. The bride and I met for a few trial runs to consider different options, but she was really feeling this effortless twisted bun look which in the end, complimented her wedding dress perfectly.

I will say, that this bride had the perfect hair for such a look : a longer length that wasn’t too thick or too thin, and deep rich colour with subtle natural highlights. It responded to curling well, and didn’t have too many layers.

To complete this look, I spritzed through some dry shampoo, curled and then wrapped her hair around large velcro rollers for the morning to induce a slight wave, volume and lift while I completed the rest of her bridal party’s hair.  When I returned to her, I released the rollers, and teased the hair around the front and crown at the root.

I then started taking sections and twisting them while bringing them back to meet in a ponytail.  I repeated this step all around and then secured the ponytail with an elastic. I then twisted the tail to form a bun and secured with bobby pins.  Then I lightly pulled and and the bun and the hairline to soften and loosen up the look.

A soft spray of extra hold hairspray to keep everything in place, but not make it look crunchy or stiff.

I think this is the perfect ‘do for the effortless bride. It looks great with dressed that have a simple bodice, but a beautiful flowing skirt.
