We know it’s bad juju to upstage the bride at her wedding. Seriously - if you’re thinking of wearing a tiara or a flower crown, take a minute to re-evaluate your life choices.
That being said, you’ll still want to kill it in the outfit department for one of two reasons:
1. You’re bringing your A game so you can catch the eye of that mega hot friend of a friend who you have totally never stalked on Instagram.
2. You want to support your friend by making sure her wedding photos are filled with good-looking people.
Whatever your justification, we’ve rounded up our favorite hairstyles for attending a summer wedding along with some handy how-to’s.
This 5-minute French twist is guaranteed to get you a tonne of compliments AND keep you from getting sweaty. That’s a win-win in our books.
1. Spray dry shampoo at your roots to add texture. (BE says: we love Fresh Hair by Kevin Murphy – it smells like marshmallows!)
2. Rake through a dime-size amount of leave-in conditioner to add lots of shine before gathering the hair just in front of the crown of the head and pulling it into a ponytail.
3. Spray texturizing spray into the ponytail, (BE says: we live & die by Bumble & Bumble Dryspun Finish for all of our texture needs) then twist the hair around the base of the ponytail, tucking the ends under the knot to hide them. Secure with plenty of bobby pins (he used 12!). "I always make an X with two bobby pins when securing, and I always spray dry shampoo on them for extra security; the starch in the dry shampoo sticks to the pins, gives them a matte finish and creates a little extra friction with the hair for tighter hold."
4. Pull out some flyaway hairs to soften the hair around the knot. "To add to the look, I used a strip of black satin as a headband," Mark says.(source: www.glamour.com)
We love the idea of these stacked braids for a more bohemian wedding. Bonus: your hair is going to have the most perfect waves when you let this bad boy down later in the evening.
