Downtown Hotel Soiree
Styled by: Sal Malafronte, Salon Mario Russo
The Look: Malafronte added extensions to create an exaggerated bun at the nape of the neck, then teased the hair on top and swept the bangs to the side.
Why It Works: â€śThis style is for a very modern, sophisticated bride,â€ť Malafronte says. â€śSheâ€™s probably having her wedding somewhere in the city. Itâ€™s very full, glamorous, sleek, and pulled togetherâ€”a play on the classic chignon.â€ť
Rustic Farm Vows
Styled by: Marisa Falone, SalonCapri
The Look: Falone braided the hair along each side of the head, then twisted the two braids together in the back and fastened them in place.
Why It Works: â€śBraids are big right now,â€ť Falone says. â€śThey are a cool, different way to wear your hair up. This â€™do is country-esque, and ties in with a barn-themed wedding. Itâ€™s definitely a more- natural look, and not very traditional.â€ť
Preppy Beach Nuptials
Styled by: Lindsay Griffin
The Look: Griffin pulled the hair into a high ponytail, back-combed the strands, pinned them in place to create a full bun, and finished the style with a satin headband.
Why It Works: â€śWhen I think preppy, I always think simplicity,â€ť Griffin says. â€śThe high bun with a hint of drama will wow. Itâ€™s great for a beach wedding, as the hair is tucked under. If itâ€™s windyâ€”God forbidâ€”the last thing you want to think about is your hair falling out of place.â€ť
