How To Create The Bella Swann Hair Half Up Look

How to achieve Bella Swann’s long wavy hair with plaits Ensure hair is clean and dry, use a mousse to add hold. Curl all the hair with a barrel tong forming rolls all over the head,  secure with clips and allow to cool. To protect the hair and add texture I used L’oreal Professional Tecni Art Hot Constructor on each section. Spray with a flexible hold hair spray such as Elnett. Once cool take the pins out and let the hair fall into waves. Part hair in the middle and take 2” sections on either side. Take the first section and plait as a French plait except you are only adding to one side instead of both  (Do not take hair from the underside as this will make it a basic French plait and you will be able to see the scalp underneath) Once you are half way round the head, stop adding and plait to the end of the hair as normal and secure with a small ‘no tear’ band. Do the same with the other side then wrap the 2 lengths of plaits in opposite directions around the head entwining as you go. Secure with pins underneath the rest of the hair to hide any ends. For a softer ‘mussed up’ curl -  Do as above then start twisting sections of hair , hold the end tight with one hand and use the other to pinch small sections of hair and push it up the hair creating a gorgeous backcombed wavy effect.  A great way to achieve that ‘Messy do’ that we love so much. Finish by scrunching in Tigi Bed Head’s Dumb Blonde Smoothing Stuff for shine. Photo by www.segeriusbruce.com, Styling by Want That Wedding

How To Use Gypsophila As A Wedding Hair Accessory

Using Gypsophila as a wedding day hair accessory is the perfect way to add bohemian charm to any hair style. The fact that it's cheap is just a bonus. 

Simply take some Gypsophila either from a florist or even your local supermarket if you're doing this last minute.

Divide the Gypsophila into smaller pieces at the stem rather than close to the flower and push the long stems through the hair, if very small I would not recommend securing with a grip as it will be larger than the flower but if the stem is long enough you won't need to secure it.

You can use smaller pieces dotted around the hair in a confetti style or use lots of gypsophila together to create more of a statement

Make sure all stems are hidden. 

 

How To Create Vintage Style Waves

Roll the hair into curls, lie flat and secure with a kirby grip or pin

Roll the hair into curls, lie flat and secure with a kirby grip or pin

Start brushing through with your fingers first to release the curl before using a brush

Once the curls have set or cooled, take the pins out
