Peony Bridal Hair Accessories


Peonies are popping up big in bridal hair ornaments this year.
The hand-curled feathers of Twigs & Honey’s Peony Hairpin for BHLDN make for pillowy, whimsical loveliness while Jennifer Behr’s Natalia uses lush, hand-stitched silk peonies and French veiling to interweave high couture and charm. I love the fluttery romance of both lines—a perfect way to add elegance to your bridal ‘do without making it scarily overdone.

Abbie Cornish’s modern take on Old Hollywood glamour


Actress Abbie Cornish looked lovely at the premiere of Limitless – her updo channeled the style of old school movie stars, but still felt fresh. Wedding hairstylists tell me that brides often request a “glamorous Old Hollywood look,” and I think this is the perfect way to pull it off with a modern twist. Nexxus Creative Director Kevin Mancuso, who created Abbie’s look, says that leaving one side slightly looser than the other—playing on the popular asymmetrical trend—is what keeps this style updated.

To recreate the look, spray wet hair with volumizing spray gel, then part hair to one side and blow dry with a round brush, rolling hair away from the face. Set hair in small velcro rollers, and after hair cools, remove the rollers and gently brush. Apply a small amount of styling lotion (like Nexxus Verastyler Artistic Designing Lotion) and comb hair back with your fingers. Pull hair into a ponytail and use the tail of a comb to loosen and lift at the crown (on one side of the part only). Tuck the bottom of the ponytail up and under, then pin in place.

Glamorous Vintage-inspired Updo


Wedding Hairstyle Glamorous Vintage inspired Updo

With the upcoming royal wedding on their minds, hairstylists Mika Rummo and Nikki Ray of Salon AKS in New York City were inspired to create this glam updo around a whimsical, English-wedding appropriate feathered hat.

To create the look, they started by smoothing a quarter-size dollop of styling cream through the hair for shine and control. Then they created an exaggerated deep side part, and brushed both sides back and securing for a tight, sleek effect.
To create a base for the bun, the loose hair was gently teased, then lightly brushed into a classic bun shape. The hat was placed slightly off center, about two inches away from the hairline.
Note: when wearing a fascinator with a veil, you want the veil to just cover the tip of your nose.

Romantic Braided Chignon

Romantic-Braided-Chignon-Hairstyle.jpgThis wedding hairstyle is a braided chignon created by Mika Rummo and Nikki Ray of Salon AKS in New York City, who think braids are going to be a huge trend this spring. Sometimes braids can look a bit too trendy or childish, but I love how this style manages to be classic and elegant.

To create the style, start by working mousse through hair (for extra grip). Then set hair in pin curls. Next, part the top of the hair in the middle and pin the loops of hair into place. If you want more dimension, add hair extensions and then wind them through the loops. Finish the look off with a long-wear, flexible hold hairspray. I also love the plum-toned smokey eye the model is wearing here (her makeup was done by Sadah Saltzman of Salon AKS)

Natasha Bedingfield’s vintage finger waves

Natasha-Bedingfield-Hairstyle.jpgThere was definitely no shortage of creative (often outlandish) hairstyles at the Grammy Awards on Sunday, but my favorite look was Natasha Bedingfield’s glamorous Old Hollywood-inspired finger waves—the style was soft and loose, so it didn’t come across as costumey.

Pairing the hairstyle with bright pink lipstick and a glitzy gown brought a modern feel to the look, as well. I think this updo would look gorgeous on a bride who wants to bring a “modern vintage” edge to her wedding day look.

Renee Bargh’s bohemian side braid

I admittedly did not know who Renee Bargh was when I saw her on the red carpet at the SAG awards last week (turns out she’s an Aussie TV presenter and Extra correspondent), but I was instantly smitten with her casually glamorous and slightly bohemian side braid—it’s a look that our editors have been loving for awhile. I especially loved that Renee anchored the braid to the side opposite her one-shouldered strap to create visual balance and avoid obscuring the lovely ruffle detail.

Penelope Cruz’s glamorous waves

glamorous-waves-bridal-hairstyle.jpgIf you’re planning on wearing your hair down on your wedding day—an especially great idea if you’re wearing a dress that shows off your shoulders—you’ll want to give it some extra oomph to make it special-event worthy.

To get glamorous waves like Penelope Cruz, Laurent Dufourg of New York, Florida, and L.A.’s Privé Salons, suggests blow-drying your hair straight on top with a round brush, applying a “froth” (try Concept Vert Volumizing Froth) at the roots, then setting it with big electric rollers. “Afterward, brush the hair out with a Mason Pearson brush, and top with a touch of Privé’s Flash Brilliance to give hair a shiny glow.” Finish with a flexible light-hold hairspray to help the style last throughout the night.
