Guest Post: Wedding Hair Styles from Ma Nouvelle Mode

I am so excited to be here, I can't even tell you!  I met Rebecca way back when I first started blogging.  She is so super cute, nice, fun, amazing jewelry maker, and very inspirational!  But then you already know that, don't you, you're here already!  And to top it off, she lived in France for a semester and I am living in France now, something in common!  And seriously, you don't understand the French until you're here.  Even then, it's kinda confusing.

So let me quickly introduce myself.  My name is Natalia & I am half of the dynamic duo at Ma Nouvelle Mode.  We (my partner is Christie) blog about fashion, hair, makeup, beauty, some DIY and recipes. Basically, what inspires us which is a lot!  Since our main topics are fashion and beauty, and Becca asked us to share something wedding related, I thought, what a better post to share then some ideas of how to wear your hair for weddings!

Here are some ideas for different ways to wear your hair for any weddings or special events you will be attending - casual or fancy!

1.) Try some braids!  Side braids, braided buns, fishtails, there are really so many options.  The great thing about braids is that you can dress them up or dress them down to match the formality of the event you are attending.  Here are some examples of braided dos I have done before.

2.) Sleek and classy.  Bust out the straightener!  For this particular look, make sure you hair is well conditioned and looks healthy.  It will defeat the purpose (the purpose being looking fabulous) if you hair is dried out and stringy.  If you have this type of hair, maybe try another look.

3.) Buns.  You can buy this nifty little sponge that goes in your hair to create the perfect bun.  It takes less than 5 minutes. Wear it up high with some cat eyes and bold lips and you will be instantly fabulous.  Or you can wear it down low and to the side for a more casual, classy look.  Buns are easy even without the nifty sponge thing - tease a bit, twist! Voila!

4.) Perfect the messy bun.  There is an art here, ladies, to the messy bun.  It can be done fast, but you might want to put in a little more effort than just tossing it up on your head.  Try sectioning your hair into three or four sections closer to your neck and twist them individually.  Then make sure they are just connected with bobby pins in the finished products.  Best part about the messy bun?  It doesn't have to look perfect!

5.) Big sexy curls.  This one might be my favorite because I may or may not love big hair.  You can do this several ways, depending on your hair type.
  • Sleep with you hair in little buns all over your head.  Take them out in the morning for some                    luscious waves.  
  • Put in hot rollers, allow them to set until cool, spray with hairspray then remove.  Tease the top and hairspray some more for some big bouncy curls.  
  • You may be young and single and have more time (or your kids are really well behaved) and want to curl with a curling iron.  Although I love the outcome, I am neither of the above so this doesn't happen much for me.  Curl sections of hair individually and let them set.  Leave the curls untouched until they have completely cooled.  The runs your fingers through them to loosen them up, tease a little at the top, spray, flip your head over and spray some more!

That's all I have for you today!  There are tutorials for these styles over on my blog if you want to check out my hair tutorials section.  I also have some makeup tutorials to complete your look!

Thanks for reading!  If you stop by my place, say hi!  I love meeting new people!
