Winning Hair For Any Wedding. From formal weddings to shabby-chic ceremonies, Harry Josh shares his tips for the perfect DIY hairstyle for every type of wedding.
No matter what type of wedding you're attending a tamed mane is a must.

Black Tie:I love a classic chignon. Black tie is all about a gown and a piece of standout jewelry, so pulling your hair back creates a nice balance. Chignons also look chic and fancy without overpowering a formal ensemble.

Semi-Formal:A ballerina bun or a sleek high ponytail is perfect for semi-formal weddings because they look both polished and playful. Also, pulling your hair away from your face allows for more formal makeup or standout jewelry.

Cocktail:Go with a great blowout, since anything too “done” screams formal. If your dress is a traditional silhouette like a sheath in a solid colour, compliment it with a smooth, sleek blowout. If you’re going with a party dress, add some big waves or curls.

Outdoor:For outdoor weddings, go casual and consider the weather. If it's going to be humid or windy, stick with a braid or loose waves, since anything too perfect can blow apart or frizz up easily.

Shabby-Chic:Shabby-chic weddings are the perfect time to play around with a fun style, so try something new or unexpected! I’d suggest braids since they can be intricate or dressy while letting everyone know you’re not taking yourself too seriously.

No matter what type of wedding you're attending, a tamed mane is a must. If you're battling heat and humidity, you'll need frizz-fighting products. Start fighting frizz in the shower with Frizz Ease® Smooth Start Shampoo and Conditioner. As soon as you get out, apply a frizz eliminating serum like Frizz Ease® Original 6 Effects™ Serum to wet hair, and blow-dry hair completely. Use a styling iron if needed.

After styling, apply a finishing cream like Frizz Ease® Secret Weapon® Touch-Up Crème to seal in sleek, frizz free style. To get your hairstyle to last throughout the wedding and reception, finish with Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray for fine to medium hair, or Frizz Ease® Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray for thick or coarse hair. Also, make sure to bring some extra bobby pins to fix flyaways.
