Kim Kardashian’s Wedding Day Hair — Styled By Chris McMillan
Here’s the how-to from Chris, who is a Living Proof Celebrity Stylist, for Kim at the rehearsal dinner:
1. “That afternoon, Kim came back and we got her ready for her rehearsal dinner. I took out the braid [from the Valentino brunch out] and brushed through her hair.
2. I added some Flex throughout her roots and around her face to give her that great lift off her forehead.
3. Then I sprayed Texture onto my hands, rubbed them together, and ran them through her hair. Texture isn’t even on the market yet, [AVAILABLE 8/21 EXCLUSIVELY AT SEPHORA] but I just love it. It’s like no other. It adds thickness and texture to the hair and it gives lived-in looking hair on fresh hair. It just makes my job easier.
4. I then pulled Kim’s hair back into a low, slightly-off-center ponytail and braided it before putting it into a bun. So Kim had a braided bun in the back, then I held it in place with a long, gold barrette at the nape of her neck. Hair accessories are big, and this was decorative but it also held everything in place. I finished the look off with a little more Flex.”
Kim Kardashian’s Wedding Day Hairstyles — Three Distinct Styles
For the ceremony:
1. “I started again with Perfect hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment, applying the product on damp hair, along with a little bit of Full Mousse at the crown. Then I gave Kim a classic blowdry with a round brush.
2. We did a center part, which is very fashionable, very chic, and very modern. It reminded me of Ali MacGraw in Love Story — it was modern but with this retro nod. Then I added a small pump of Satin at the ends of Kim’s hair to make it look shiny and healthy. I really wanted her hair to look as healthy, pretty, and youthful as possible.
3. Kim’s Givenchy dress was so elegant and beautiful. Because of the veil, I tucked her hair behind her ears and kept the look simple and elegant. It all worked well together. The whole look was very modern, chic, and different.
4. I finished off the look with Control Hairspray around the hairline — it’s a stronger hairspray and I wanted to make sure that even with the veil, everything stayed in place.”
Kim’s Reception Hair — Half Back
1. “After Kim took her veil off, I pulled the two front pieces of hair back. I used another Emi-Jay ponytail holder to make a tiny little ponytail in the back — it was very 70s. It started at her temples and went to the back of her head.
2. I then took a little spray of baby’s breath from her bouquet and put it in the middle of the ponytail. I always like to put flowers in the hair, especially at a wedding — but not in a big way. I like to do it in a simple, small way. That’s a go-to-thing. Riccardo Tisci was like, ‘Let’s do this! Let’s put a tiny bit in her hair.’ Collaborating with the designer of Givenchy was just amazing.”
Kim’s Third Hairstyle — Post Dress-Change
1. “About two-thirds into the reception, Kim changed into another dress. All I did this time was take her hair down, brush it out, and re-blow dried the front a bit. After she changed into her Balmain dress, I sprayed some Texture on my hands and added that throughout her hair.
2. I also used a little bit of Satin at her ends for shine and Flex Hairspray throughout for extra hold.”
