If you're looking for a simple yet chic bridal hairstyle, a low chignon is an elegant option that lends itself perfectly to accessories and veils. Most of the hair is fixed by the nape, leaving plenty of room for any embellishments you want to add. To try the style before your wedding day, all you need to do is follow the tutorial below!

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with freshly washed, towel dried hair, scrunch Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse throughout.

Step 2
Leave your locks to air dry until they're only slightly damp, or rough-dry on a medium temperature if you don't have much time. Then, blow-dry your hair the rest of the way, using a paddle brush to straighten it.

Step 3
Once dried, part your hair in the middle and comb it through on either side.

Step 4
Use your hands to sweep your hair to one side, then tie it into a low pony. Spray the pony with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and gently tease it to add texture and create more volume.

Step 5
Twist the ponytail into a bun and secure with bobby pins.

Step 6
Gently pull a few small pieces loose at the front to soften the look, then mist your style all over with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.

What do you think? Could this understated updo be the one you walk down the aisle with?
