hair how to: too mod

This updo is one part Bardot, two parts Twiggy for this 2011 take on the bouffant-twist.

1. Divide the hair into two sections, parting it across the back of the head.

2. Tease the top portion of the hair. Spray with Spray de Mode. Place headband.

Winter Wonderful

We’re already imagining this style on your heads for new years eve, a special occasion or brides (and ourselves).
1. On damp hair, spray Bb. Thickening Hairspray to the root area and ends of hair.
2. Turn head upside down to achieve maximum volume and dry the hair with a blow-dryer, continuously running your fingers through the hair while it is drying.
3. Once the hair is dry, use your fingers to create a very natural part and make sure to keep it soft in appearance.
4. On one side, take a 3-inch section of hair with your fingers and start to turn the section away from the face until it shrinks or twists down towards the scalp. When 50 percent of the hair has been wound down towards the head, add another 3-inch section to what you’re already holding and repeat. Do this until you reach the center of the back of the head, and secure with a few bobby pins. (The volume at the back appears naturally while gathering and twisting sections of the hair.)
5. Repeat this on the other side. Leave any pieces that accidentally fall out as this creates the softness that finishes this fun look so well.
6. Finish with Spray de Mode hairspray for a gentle but effective hold. Pin It

hair how to: vintage make

Proving that all a Birdcage Veil needs is a polished down ’do. This style evokes the charm and presence of a 40's screen siren.

2. Using a 1-inch barrel curling iron, begin winding the entire head of hair, 1-inch section by 1-inch section.

3. Create a side part into the hair and comb it out thoroughly to achieve a smooth, uniform texture.

4. For a look that won’t go anywhere, indoors or outdoors, hairspray it with Spray de Mode.

hair how to: Grace Kelly

For this faux-bobbed ’do inspired by one of, if not the most, elegant American icons.

1. Comb Styling Creme into wet hair to ensure a firm set then blow dry.

2. Using large sections of hair, set the entire head with medium-barreled hot rollers.

3. Once cooled, comb out the curls and position a headband.

5. Fold the hair under and pin equal-sized sections at the nape of the neck. Give the bob a gentle comb to smooth and finish. Finish with a spritz of Spray de Mode for hold. Pin It

2. Smooth the top of the hair and pull all of it to one side of the neck.

hair how to: elfin

One of our favorites! (this is from BHLDN as well). Perfect for the bride picturing an outdoor, candlelit ceremony, inspired by medieval hairstyles. This look has an earthy feel to it, especially when you add the feathered hair piece, but it forms this beautiful halo around the head, which adds drama.

1. On dry hair create a side part and began braiding around the face, starting with hair closest to the hairline and adding to the braid with hair further back on the head. Continue this until finally coming full circle.

2. Secure the tail of the braid into its beginning with a bobby pin.

3. Begin pulling at the braid gently with you fingers, concentrating at the nape of the neck to anchor the style.

4. Finish with Spray de Mode hairspray and add a feather or hair pin for added drama.

hair how to: the pin-up

Another beautiful style from BHLDN. This was inspired by Rita Hayworth, keeping the hair full and loose, pulling it back just enough to let the Peony Hairpin share the spotlight.

1. To start this simple yet head-turning style, comb Styling Creme through wet hair.

2. Get hair completely dry, and then set the entire head with a 1-inch barrel curling iron.

3. Let the hair cool. Let the hair down and comb through. Start at it with your hands to get right amount of volume and shape.

4. Spray hair with Spray de Mode and pin in a flower for the final touch.
