The Redken accessorized updo caught my eye in an instant! This is (literally) the style I have always dreamed of for my big day! There will have to be a few adjustments, I’m assuming, since my locs should be down my back by then. A beautiful bun with a strapless gown and flawless makeup equals my version of wedding day perfection!!! Here’s how artistic director Giovanni Giuntoli created the look.
“To create, first apply Redken spray starch 15 versatile ironing spray (SRP $13.00) throughout hair to allow for extra texture and support of the shape. Make a horizontal part at the crown 4 inches from forehead and section off. Use spritzes of workforce 09 flexible volumizing spray ($15.00) to reduce flyaways as you pull back and secure with an elastic just above the occipital bone. Next, take front section and spray fabricate 03 heat active texturizer (SRP $13.00) through and backcomb lightly in sections to create the height that will show at the top of the finished style. Lightly brush back to meet with the ponytail making sure to keep the textured height, and secure all together with an elastic. Grab the ponytail and swirl it loosely into an open chignon around itself and pin as you create a ‘donut-like’ shape. Hide ends into bun and pin with hair pins to secure. Loosely pull out a few pieces on the sides and top for added texture to the silhouette. Lastyly, finish total look with workforce 09 flexible volumizing spray (SRP $15.00) for a flexible hold.”
He then tightened the bun and added the flowered side piece. How gorgeous is this?!?! For more information on Giovanni and his work, check him out here!
