Wedding hair sounds super daunting, but you can master pretty much anything with a little confidence and a few supplies. Want to learn how to create a classy and modern braided updo? Here’s how.

Things you’ll need:
Curling iron
Hair spray
Bobby pins
Clear elastics

Tease
Step 1
Curl your hair for added body and grab a section of hair at the crown. Spray with hairspray and tease with a comb by back-combing down to the scalp to create added volume.
