We’re pretty excited to bring you not just one, but a couple of awesome summer wedding ideas today! First, a bright and punchy summer bridal look by hair stylist Lauren Prohaska that’s easy for brides and wedding guests to do themselves using minimal product… something that anyone could do for their engagement, shower or wedding day! And, as if that’s not wonderful enough, this shoot photographed by Katie Pritchard also features a whimsical swing, a fringe crepe paper wall for some visual stimulation and a pretty bride wearing a gorgeous floral crown that we totally adore. Excited yet? Go ahead, start reading!

Step 1:
Start your wedding waves with smooth and bouncy blown out hair.

Step 2:
Take 1 1/2 sections from the front and mist Thickening Spray by B&B from the middle of your piece to the end. This will give your waves heat protection and flexible hold all day.

Step 3:
Hold your curling iron horizontal to your section so that the curling iron is on top of your section and wrap your piece away from your face. Hold for 30 seconds.

Step 4:
Catch your coiled wave after sliding your curling iron out. Release your wave and let cool.

Step 5:
Wrap the next piece away from the face with the curling iron under your section. Alternating the curling iron on top of the section and under the section will give your over all look a more modern feel. The more random and less perfect it is, the better.

Step 6:
Repeat the alternating waves all over your head. Once all your waves have cooled, take a dime size amount of Super Shine Cream by Oribe and spray some Does It All flexible hold hairspray by B&B and mix together. Lightly break up your waves with the product on your fingers. This will give you those glistening and textured ‘beachy’ waves. Perfect look for an outdoor or beachside wedding! Enjoy!
