Easy, DIY Styles for Guests of Summer Weddings!

Summer is upon us and wedding season will soon be in full swing!  Since you are likely to be attending a wedding or other special event this season, and whether you are getting ready in a hotel room or at home, Jenny Balding, Cutler/Redken Stylist, provides easy, DIY hair styles that you can recreate!

Disheveled Halo Braid

This is the perfect way to have style your hair if your attending a wedding in the heat of summer.  You never have to worry about it all day and night!  This would look best on an open neckline e.g strapless or thin like straps.
Create a middle part and split the hair into two sections
Braid each section starting just behind the chair 
Bring one braid over the top and secure with hair pin behind ear
Use the hair hair pin like an anchor and twist it back on itself. This is the perfect to disguise and secure your halo braid.
Then secure through the top sections if necessary with a couple of hair pins
Repeat on other side

Sleek Center Braid
This is perfect for summer wedding as it keeps your hair off your face but still allows you to wear your hair down and works with any neckline!
Blow dry very straight by using a smoothing, straightening lotion 
Section a mohawk section of 2" width coming into a point at the nape
Use a dry shampoo on this section to create texture and grip to the hair
Reverse braid from the hairline right down to the nape and secure with small band
If necessary, finish by using straightening irons to the loose hair  to create a sleek, polished feel.
