Ashley’s vintage bridal hair up tutorial

Step 1
Start with clean dry hair, comb into a low side parting and prep by spraying with hairspray.

Step 2
Using either a curling wand or irons, curl the hair all over in 2-inch sections. Try to curl it all in the same direction. Once all done spray a little more and then rake your fingers through to break up the curls.

Step 4
With the rest of your hair, take it around into a low ponytail the same side as the hair you have sectioned away. Secure with a clear band. Now twist the ponytail around into a rosette bun and secure with bobby pins.
