HAIR, FACE, AND BODY OILS21 October 2020
Wedding season is on! If you’re getting ready
to say “yes” and are looking for inspiration for the big day,
here are two very elegant and glamorous bridal hairstyles
to do on long or medium-length hair.
The wheat cob braid on the side
The braid comes in a wheat ear on the side, or “side fishtail braid”,
for a bohemian and romantic effect that lends itself particularly well
to sunny days.
Prepare your hair:
Blow dry your hair by first applying a styling mousse to give
texture and grip to your hair.
Discipline your hair by brushing it to separate your lengths easily.

Split your lengths in half:
Tilt your hair to the side and split it into two equal
sections from the top of your neck.
Pull a small strand from the back of one of the two sections you set
and run it over to insert it into the opposite section.
Do the same on the other side. Repeat this step until you have braided the entire
length of your hair, making sure to tighten between each section.
You can loosen your braid later if you need to, by pulling the strands of each
Tie your braid:
Tie your braid with an elastic band placed more or less high
according to your tastes, which you will then hide by wrapping a strand of hair
around it. To fix the tie and make sure your braid will hold all day long,
spray a little hairspray on the elastic band.

For a “wild” effect, you can, as in the photo, leave a few strands of hair free,
which will beautifully frame your face and run along your braid.
A great classic in bridal hairstyles, the bun enhances the face while bringing
a soft and graceful note to your overall look.
Here’s how to make a bun cross, with nicely intertwined strands for a more modern touch:
Prepare your hair:
A smooth and shiny hair is essential to achieve this hairstyle!
Proceed with blow drying by applying a thermo-protective and smoothing care beforehand.

Make the bun:
For this version we’re going to use the whole hair to form the bun.
It is however possible to leave a few strands free at the front if your hair is not long enough
or for a more natural result.
Pull your hair back and tie it in a medium-high ponytail with a rubber band.
Make sure you have a bun close to your hair color and slip your ponytail inside.
Separate the ponytail into 3 or 4 strands depending on the thickness of your hair,
then wrap the first strand around the bun, securing it with a flat clip that you will prick
into the bun.
Do the same with the other strands, starting at a different angle so that they cross each
other and give relief to your bun.
Spray a light veil of hairspray on the finished hairstyle to ensure a perfect hold.

with a touch of nature, like a fresh flower pricked into your bun or intertwined
with your braid. And if you prefer to entrust your hairstyle to professionals,
