Wear Your Hair Like This to Your Next Summer Wedding
Naeem Khan's bridal runway show featured models in this simply chic twisted bun that would be perfect on a guest, too.
In need of hair inspiration for that next wedding on the calendar? Lead stylist Joseph DiMaggio, master session ambassador for Davines, created the perfect 'do at the Naeem Khan show that easily goes from bride to wedding guest. It's "a demure roped chignon, reminiscent of a flower in bloom," according to DiMaggio. And it's relatively simple to accomplish at home.
First, "prep hair by applying a generous amount of Davines More Inside This Is A Volume Boosting Mousse ($34) onto fingertips. Distribute thoroughly from roots to ends, keeping hair smooth and in place," says DiMaggio. Next, section hair evenly from ear to ear, creating a front and a back section. Then, "using a blow dryer and large round brush, work to create subtle volume and bounce at the crown and top of the head by blowing hair up and away from the face."
When hair is dry, use your fingertips to sweep the hair into a layered ponytail, and secure it with an elastic tie directly under the occipital bone. Next, says DiMaggio, "separate the ponytail into two smaller sections and tightly twist each, securing with two small elastics." Wrap them together into a rope braid, twist it into a bun and fasten securely with bobby pins. Using fingertips, customize the braid shape by applying Davines More Inside This Is A Texturizing Dust ($28) to hands and massaging for additional support and texture expansion. Finally, finish with Davines More Inside This Is A Medium Hold Hair Spray ($29) for shine and hold.
