Best Wedding Updo — Romantic Hairstyle For Summer Brides

Case in point: you can achieve the beautiful and timeless bun as seen at Naeem Khan’s Spring/Summer 2016 Bridal Fashion Show without an expensive hairstylist!
“I was thrilled to create the hair look for Naeem’s modern, yet classic bride. I complemented [Naeem Khan’s] idyllic beadwork with a demure roped chignon — reminiscent of a flower in bloom. The natural backswept style also provides the perfect frame for the seashell crowns seen throughout the show,” explained hairstylist and Davines Ambassador, Joseph DiMaggio.
Lucky for us, Joseph is sharing his hair secrets by breaking down his step-by-step process. Follow his tips and you’ll be able to achieve this stunning style yourself.
Before you prepare to the walk down the aisle, prep your hair with Davines OI Absolute Beautifying Potion.
How To Get The Romantic Roped Chignon
Apply a generous amount of Davines More Inside This is A Volume Boosting Mousse onto fingertips. Joseph advises that you distribute it thoroughly from roots to ends, keeping hair smooth and in place.
Next, section hair evenly from ear to ear, creating front and back sections. After this, use a blow dryer and large round brush to create subtle volume and bounce at the crown and top of the head by blowing hair up and away from the face.
Once dry, use fingers to sweep the hair into a layered ponytail, securing with an elastic tie directly under the occipital bone, advises Joseph.
Then tightly twist into a low bun at the nape of the neck, fasten with pins and use weft (virtually undetectable strip) extensions, to create two tight twists. Twist these two extension wefts together, creating a “rope braid.”
Next, wrap the rope braid around bun to create an elegant flowerlike shape and pin securely. You can use your fingertips to customize the braid shape by applying Davines More Inside This Is A Texturizing Dust to hands and massaging for additional structural support and texture expansion.
Lastly, finish by applying Davines More Inside This Is A Medium Hold Hair Spray for all over for shine and hold.
