Wedding Updo #1: Simple Undone Crown Braid

Looking for a simple hairstyle for your big day? Whether your wedding is casual or you're attempting to create an ethereal vibe with your overall look, this easy-to-achieve three-strand crown braid could be a great fit.

What you’ll need:

Clear elastics

Bobby pins

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Create a center part. Simply divide your hair into two even sections.

Step 2: Weave a three-strand braid with each section. Start at the nape of your neck and work your way to the ends. Once you reach the ends, fluff up each braid and tie each braid off with a clear elastic.

Step 3: Flip your braid over the top of your head. Pull each braid up and over the crown of your head, pinning them in place as you go. The ends of each braid should be pinned to the opposite side of your head.

Step 4: Finish with face-framing strands and hair spray. Gently pull a few strands out around your hairline and in front of your ears before giving your ‘do an allover spritz of fine control hair spray.

Wedding Updo #2: Braid Accented Chignon

Chignon updos are a classic wedding hairstyle that will never go out of style. To perk up the age-old look, weave a few braids to drape over your crown for the perfect feminine accent.

What you’ll need:

Clear elastic

Bobby pins

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Part your hair down the middle. Easy enough!

Step 2: Create a small braid on one side of your head. Keep it simple with a three-strand braid starting close to your part. Once you reach your ends, let the braid hang loose.

Step 3: Create a twist. Grab another section of hair an inch or so below your braid and twist it back towards the top of your ear. Pin it in place for the time being.

Step 4: Repeat on the other side. Symmetry is the key to beauty, after all.

Step 5: Secure your braids together. Pull your braids and twists back behind your head and secure with a clear elastic.

Step 6: Create your chignon. Flip the rest of your hair up and tuck into the braid. Once everything looks just right, secure it with bobby pins.

Step 7: Finish with hair spray. A spritz of hair spray here and there will help ensure your look lasts all night long.

Wedding Updo #3: Voluminous Twisted Updo

When you think of wedding hair, elaborate twisted updos that look straight out of a fairytale likely come to mind. If this is the wedding updo you’ve always dreamt of, then the tutorial below will come in handy.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray

Clear elastics

Bobby pins

L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Create texture and waves. A few spritzes of wave-enhancing hair spray will do the trick. Simply spritz it into damp hair and allow your strands to air dry, scrunching them along the way to help boost shape.

Step 2: Tussle and divide your hair. Once your hair has dried, use your hands to gently brush through your waves.

Step 3: Pull your hair half up and secure with a clear elastic. Before tying your hair up, be sure to section out two sections of hair, each about a quarter of your overall half-up section.

Step 4: Create your first bun. Twirl the half-up hair around itself into a bun. Fluff the bun to make it a bit more full and secure with bobby pins.

Step 5: Twist your front sections back. Twirl one front section at a time back towards your bun, looping it over and around before securing with bobby pins.

Step 6: Divide your remaining hair. Gather all of your hair together and divide into three sections: one larger and two equally smaller. Pull the two smaller sections to the front before wrapping the remaining hair into a fluffy bun. Pin in place with bobby pins.

Step 7: Create rope braids. Split one front section at a time into two sections to twist and twirl to create a rope braid on each side of your head.

Step 8: Add your rope braids to your updo. Take one rope braid and drape it between the two buns, pinning it underneath the lower bun. Take the other rope bread and drape it over the top bun, pinning it between the two buns.

Step 9: Fluff up you updo. Gently tug at all the sections of your hairstyle for the most fairytale-inspired wedding updo.

Step 10: Finish with hairspray. A look this pretty is meant to last. To help make that possible, spray your updo with hair spray before making your big debut.
