Last Autumn I worked as part of the Rock My Wedding team on an editorial photo shoot for the launch of their upcoming online magazine. The shoot was a lovely girly day collaborating on a number of Brigette Bardot inspired images. Every shot told a different story, drawing from everything from 1970’s rock icons to 1960’s Italian styling, all with a modern Rock My Wedding twist!

In this latest blog post I wanted to share some of my favourite images from the day and some tips on how to recreate a few of the looks either for your big day or if you just feel like doing something different with your locks.
LOOSE SIDE BUN
Curl through all the hair using tongs or a curling wand to create a loose wave and spray through with a texturising spray. I used VO5 Give Me Texture to help create a natural tousled look. Then using your fingers push the hair back from the front to create a natural lift and break up the curls. Bring the hair into a very loose ponytail down the side of the head to secure the base of your bun. Then twist sections and pin to cover the hairband and build the shape of the bun. Because this is a natural, messy look it doesn’t need to be perfect and you can make it as loose or as neat as you like. Make sure it is secure with plenty of hair pins and then spray with hairspray to keep it in place.
