There are things you don’t want on your wedding day (rain, red wine stains). And things you really don’t want (bad shellfish, terrible hair).
Safeguard against the latter by doing your hair yourself. (Yes, we’re serious.)
In today’s video, Michael Angelo, founder/owner of Wonderland Beauty Parlor in NYC, creates an elegant chignon that you (or your mom) can easily DIY. All you need are bobby pins, a rubber band, a curling iron, and some sculpting product. Add a special touch with clips or flowers.
What’s the appeal? You’ll look more natural — and the hairstylist is with you the entire reception should any strands fall. Not to mention, more money for the things you do want (expensive booze).
