Happy weekend, y’all! As August draws to an end, we are now entering into wedding season round 3 – my personal favorite: the fall season. J and I will be going to about 5 weddings in the next two months, and I am so excited for all of the beautiful autumn wedding celebrations.
To kick off this fun time of the year, I am answering some of the recurring questions I have received throughout the past year, after sharing my Top 5 Reasons to do Your Own Wedding Hair & Makeup, about what products and tools I used for this twisty pulled-back look I did for our wedding:
Q. What type of curling iron did you use?
A. The Conair 3/4″. Instead of twisting the hair, I wrap it around the curling iron.
Q. Did you use any type of prep product before styling it?
A. Yes! After showering I always apply Oribe Balm to protect my hair when I know I will be styling it with heat. Then, immediately before I curl a section of hair, I spray it with Oribe Heat Styling Hair Spray – typically I don’t need finishing hair spray when using this product as it holds so well.
Q. Where did you get your hairpiece from?
A. It actually came from a headband I saw one afternoon at Francesca’s (similar one linked here). I cut the rubber sides off the headband then measured how much of the lacy design I would need to have it fit between the twists. Bobby pins were all I used to secure it. I loved that it was super light and didn’t interfere with my veil!
