Inspired by classic pin-ups and the glamor girls of Hollywood’s golden age, this easy updo has retro charm to spare. A few bobby pins, a pony tail holder, and a little shine spray are all you need to transform your do into something wedding-worthy.
This style works best for straight or textured long hair.
Ponytail holder (preferably one in the same shade as your hair)
Shine spray or smoothing serum, depending on your hair texture
Step 1: Separate a large section of hair in the front on each side.
Step 3: Separate the ponytail into two sections and twist to the end.
Step 4: Take the twisted ponytail and wrap into a bun.
Step 5: Pin in place.
Step 6: Take the remaining front sections and roll a pin curl on either side (For more on styling pin curls, see a tutorial here).
The finished look is fit for walking down the aisle.
Tip: Use a bit of shine spray or smoothing serum to keep this look sleek all day!
