Floral Headpieces: Bridal Hair 1


Hi everyone. I am Hollie and this is bridal
hair on my wedding scrapbook. Today I am going to show you how to get this gorgeous up do,
which is perfect for floral headpieces. [music]
So first of all, we are going to section our hair into manageable pieces. It makes the
look a whole lot easier. So we start off with quite a deep side parting, which makes the
swoop of different sections a lot more dramatic. We are going to take about a one and a half
inch chunk from the front of the hair and we are going to pull it to one side. So this
will be the final piece that we put into the look. So just roll that up. The next section
that we are going to pull off is for the French braid. So you are going to want to take just
from the crown to where you sectioned off your bangs, and follow this line all the way
across the head. So you are going to pull this up and put it out of the way. I am just
going to put just a little bit of texturizer just in at the root and as you can see it
just gives it a little bit of texture and it makes it so much easier to work with. So
before we start plaiting, what I am going to do is I am just going to backcomb through
the length of the hair very gently just so we get a little more definition in the plait.
We just want to give the hair a bit more texture. Lovely. OK, ready to start plaiting. So taking
a small section right up at the crown, near to where you split is, divide in three. Now
we are just going to plait as normal, kind of like a loose French braid, working your
way towards the back of the head. We are going to plait the whole way down the length of
this hair, just in case. When you are finished, secure it in place with a bobby pin or a little
elastic band. Once you finish your two plaits, we are going to start working on the back
section of the hair. So again, section it off into two pieces before you get started
just to make everything a bit more manageable, wrapping the top section up just to keep it
out of the way. For the top section, we are going to work a lot of texture and lift into
the hair. To do this, I am just going to pop a little bit of texturizer just in at the
roots. This just gives it a bit of instant lift. Now we are going to backcomb ever so
slightly just to give it a little bit of a bump. Once you are happy with the height that
you have, pin the hair in place using bobby pins that are the same shade as your hair.
Once you are happy with your style and it is nice and fixed in place, we are going to
work on the remainder of the hair. What I am going to do with this is pop a few curls
in along the length of the hair just to give it a bit of bounce and texture and then pin
them up towards our anchor points. Prepping this hair with just a little bit of mousse
will just give it a good bit of grip, and it will make sure that the curls and the style
stay in place all day. So we are going to curl the hair quite near the root because
you want to get a good bit of curl all of the way from root to tip. Then release the
curl and allow it to cool. Keep doing this until you have used up all of the hair left
over. Once the curls have cooled, it is a good idea to pop your tiara or headpiece in
so that you can position it with the bump and with the rest of the hair. So the next
step is that we are going to start popping all of this hair up to meet our anchor point.
So to create a little bit of volume, I am just going to backcomb along the length of
the hair just so it is not so curly. This will create a nice bit of volume and it is
great if you don not want to use extensions. Using curvy grips the same shade as your hair,
roll the hair over on itself and pin up towards the anchor points. As this is kind of a casual,
boho look, you do not have to be too perfect with pinning the sections in place. So once
you have pinned up the lower sections of the hair and you have your curls, we are just
going to take these down. There you go, and this is a nice time, if you have any hair
jewelry that you want to pop in, you can place this in here. What else you are going to is
we are going to take our plaits from earlier. So I am just going to pin the hair in place
using curvy grips the same shade as the hair so you get a real seam free finish. Once you
have pinned your plaits in place and you have covered any traces of your tiara headband,
it is time to start loosely pinning up the longer lengths of hair and the ends of your
plaits. So we are simply going to twirl these towards the head and add them to the rest
of the style. Once you are happy with the back section of
the hair, it is time to concentrate on the last bit here. So once you have taken this
down, you are just going to backcomb the root ever so slightly just so that it sits up a
little bit from the face. So we are just going to put a little bit of wave into the hair
so that it makes it a little bit easier to incorporate into the style. Wrap the hair
around your wand or ghd or whatever you are using. Working away from the face, and just
let it sit there for a couple of seconds, so that you just get quite a light wave in
it. Pull the hair away from the face, making sure that you leave it nice and soft on your
forehead, and then just incorporate it back in to the curls at the back. Once you are
happy with the style that you have, we are just going to finish off the whole look with
a good bit of hairspray. Make sure to smooth away any little flyaways that you might have
at the crown or on your face. So there you have it, gorgeous bridal hair, perfect for
wearing with those floral headpieces. If you like this video, do give it a thumbs up and
