Braided Bridal Options from Moroccanoil

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

One of my bridal blunders at the moment is will my hair be up or down? I love the elegance of an up-do but down is so bouncy and fun!

Decisions! Decisions! I recently came across this email showcasing bridal hair design by Antonio Corral Calero, Moroccanoil® Artistic Director for the Monique Lhuillier Fall 2014 Bridal Collection.

Antonio designed six different variations of braided looks: “The attention was on the matte texture of the hair and the intricate details of each braided bun, parted side or center, with minimal volume on top.”


Products used:
Moroccanoil® Treatment (MSRP: $43.00 / 100ml)
Moroccanoil® Root Boost (MSRP $29.00 / 250ml)
Moroccanoil® Boar Bristle Classic Brush (MSRP: $72.00)
Moroccanoil® Molding Cream (MSRP: $28.00 / 3.4 fl. oz.)
Moroccanoil® Luminous Hairspray Medium locks (MSRP: $22.20 / 330ml)

First Look

  • “To begin, I combed all the hair towards the back of the head 
  • “I then created three large parts: right, left and back.” 
  • “Each of the three parts became a braid. The right and left sides were inward French braids and the back braid between them was a standard braid, which would serve as the base for the chignon.”
  • “I pulled the left and right braids around the back of the head and then wrapped them several times around the back braid.They wrapped about halfway down the back braid.” 
  • “I pinned the bottom part of the braid inwards, towards the nape, and created the chignon.” 
  • “To give the chignon a more romantic and uneven look, I gently pulled and opened elements of each braid slightly within the chignon.”
Second Look

  • "First, I parted the hair to the side."
  • "Next, I divided the hair into three parts: right, left and back"
  • "Each of the three parts became a braid. The right and left sides were inward French braids and the back braid between them was a standard braid, which would serve as the base for the chignon."
  • "I pulled the left and right braids around the back of the head and then wrapped them several times around the back braid. They wrapped about halfway down the back braid."
  • "I pinned the bottom part of the braid inwards, towards the nape, and created the chignon."
  • "To give the chignon a more romantic and uneven look, I gently pulled and opened elements of each braid slightly within the chignon."
Third Look

  • "For this look, I combed all of the model’s hair towards the back and used Moroccanoil® Luminous Hair Spray Medium to help control and eliminate fly-aways close to her face. Moroccanoil® Luminous Hair Spray Medium is the perfect tool for this look: it gives the right amount of hold to keep
  • the hair in place, and leaves it looking beautiful with natural shine."
  • "Next, I divided the hair into three parts: right, left and back. "
  • "Each of the three parts became a braid. All were standard braids, which would serve as the base for the chignon. 
  • "I crossed the right braid with the left towards the back of her head, and clipped it into place." 
  • "Then, I took the back braid and twisted it towards the outside, rolling it towards the crown. I used clips on all three braids at the bottom of the chignon, to hide the ends. 
  • "As a final step, to give the chignon a less tight, more romantic and slightly uneven look, I gently pulled and opened elements of each braid slightly within the chignon."

Fourth Look

  • "For the fourth look, I combed all the hair towards the back of the head and used Moroccanoil® Luminous Hair Spray Medium to help control and eliminate fly-aways close to her face."
  • "Next, I divided the hair into three parts: right, left and back."
  • "Each of the three parts became a braid. The right and left were lace braids. The back (middle) braid was a standard braid, which would serve as the base for the chignon."
  • "I pulled the left and right braids around the back of the head and then wrapped them several times around the back braid. They wrapped about halfway down the back braid."
  • "I pinned the bottom part of the braid inwards, towards the nape, and created the chignon."
  • "To give the chignon a less tight, more romantic and slightly uneven look, I gently pulled and opened elements of each braid slightly within the chignon."

Fifth Look

  • "I began by parting the model’s hair to the side." 
  • "Then, I divided her hair into three parts: right, left and back." 
  • "I created two braids: one on the right and another on the left. One was a regular braid, and the other a French braid. 
  • "The back (middle) part was turned into a ponytail, which I back-combed slightly."
  • "The right braid was crossed with the left, towards the back in a circular motion around the back braid until mid-ponytail. "
  • "Next, I pinned the bottom part of the braid inwards, towards the nape to create the chignon."
  • "As a final step, to give the chignon a less tight, more romantic look, I gently pulled and opened elements of each braid within the chignon."


Sixth Look

  • "To create the final look I began by combing all of the model’s hair towards the back of her head. I used Moroccanoil® Luminous Hairspray Medium to control any fly-aways close to her face."
  • "Next, I divided her hair into three parts: right, left and back."
  • "The right and left parts were turned into feather braids. The back(middle) part was turned into a slightly back-combed ponytail."
  • "I then crossed the right braid with the left towards the back of the head, circling the back part until mid-ponytail."
  • "Next, the bottom part of the braid and ponytail were pinned inwards towards the nape to create the chignon." 
  • "As a final step, to give the chignon a less tight, more romantic look, I gently pulled and opened elements of each braid within the chignon.
