Bridal Hair Tutorial: Romantic Braided Chignon
The Perfect Romantic Braided Chignon for a Spring or Summer Wedding
Dreamy, romantic wedding day hair is huge this year. From the runway to the aisle, intricate chignons are all the rage and thanks to Jennifer Fujikawa Photography and Beauty In Motion you will be able to create your own gorgeous look by following a few simple steps. Accessorize with a stunning hair piece or a lovely veil from Marisol Aparicio to complete the style.
Start by curling the entire hair with a 1-inch curling iron and create loose waves. Section the crown area and start teasing it to create the desred volume. Smooth out the surface of hair nicely and spray with hairspray.
Part your hair with a deep side part. Then create two sections on either side of your head, even with your ear. Pin out of the way.
Take the deep side part section and start French-braid along the longer hairline, pulling in small sections as you go. Gently pull on the braids to loosen and fatten up the braids a bit to create a romantic feel and textures. Secure it with elastic.
Now take the other side and braid it the same way as the deep side part section.
Take the braid from the deep side part section and pull it across the back of your head and secure with a bobby pin. Now pull the other side of the braid and secure it with a bobby pin just below the deep side part braid.
Divide the remaining hair into three sections and French braid each section. Make sure to loosen up the braid before securing it with elastic.
Now carefully roll up each braid to create a rose bun and secure it with bobby pins. Don’t worry about your hair being a bit messy or pieces falling out; this look is supposed to be more organic than polished.
Last but not least, accessorize the hair with a pretty sparkly hair comb by Marisol Aparicio and there you have it- The Romantic Braided Chignon!
