Keep it chic and simple where your wedding hair is concerned!

Choosing the right hairstyle for your wedding day is something that needs to be done with a lot of careful consideration. After all, this is a hairstyle you're never going to forget! Essentially, the idea is to look like the best version of yourself - you're deciding on a look that makes the most of your natural beauty, not one that overshadows it.

For many brides, a simple hairstyle is often the best option. Fuss-free with a slight sheen, the low chignon opposite is a great example of this. It's pretty, it won't pose any problems vis à vis veils and it's dance floor friendly, too! (This is very important – if the bride wants to dance like nobody's watching, she should be able to without worrying about her hair falling flat!)

If you would like to road test this look before your wedding or are taking a DIY approach to your big day, you'll find a step-by-step tutorial below to help you recreate this style.

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream
Round brush
Tail comb
Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray
Bobby pins
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: Give yourself the best possible starting point for this ultra-sleek style by blow-drying with Frizz Vanisher Cream. This will help to tame flyaways while promoting a smooth texture as you dry. Use a round brush to guide the hair as straight as you can.

Step two: Depending on your hair's natural texture, you may need to run a flat iron through it once everything is dry.

Step three: Use a tail comb to part your hair on one side and mist all over with Strand-Smoother Serum Spray for a high-shine, cashmere soft finish.

Step four: Gather the hair at the nape of your neck. Use pins to hold it in place, leaving the lengths hanging down. Divide the hair into large sections and secure over the pins you used to keep the hair back.

Step five: Spray your whole style generously with Bold Control Hairspray to finish.

What do you think, could this be the hairstyle to walk you down the aisle?
