De56f58e8b1b5d4152a1 bridal twisted upstyle

With wedding season around the corner, we have been seeing up style inspiration everywhere! In her latest tutorial, hair and makeup artist Sherri Jessee teaches us how to take a simple concept and make it into an intricate bridal up style. Follow along with the steps below and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments below!

Before beginning the style: Prepare the hair by misting Pravana NEVO Invisible Control into the hair for heat protection and create bombshell waves by wrapping hair around a 1 ¼” Sultra Clipless Wand.

Step 1: Lightly tease top section of hair and smooth back using a teasing brush.

Step 2: Clip the front side sections forward and out of your way. Twist top crown section and secure with several pins. Cross the pins in an X formation to lock them in. (This creates a great anchor for a veil.)

Step 3: Beginning on one side of the head, take a small section of hair and twist it.

Step 4: Use your finger tips to gently pull open the twisted section to create a larger and looser texture.  Drape across the back of the head and pin.

Step 5: Continue working down the head in the same manner taking sections from one side to the other. Do not open your pin as you slide it in  to tightly secure the hair.

Step 6: Loosely twist the side sections, open them for romantic texture, and pin to secure. Allow a few soft tendrils to drop out.

Step 7: Adjust shape for balance and pin where needed.

Step 8: Spray lightly with Pravana NEVO Super Shape Hair Spray to smooth fly-away hairs and provide long lasting hold.
