Wedding Hairstyle of the Week:
A Braided Halo

At the Spring 2012 Valentino runway show in Paris yesterday, the models wore soft, romantic braids wrapped around their heads, which I think would be such a pretty, bohemian look on a bride (check out the intricacy of the style in the back after the jump!) Redken Creative Consultant Guido says his goal was to create a beautiful, timeless style. To create the look, he took a circular section of the hair at the crown, divided it into three sections, and then began French braiding in the middle, continuing to just under the right ear, then going counterclockwise around the hairline, pinning along the way to keep everything in place. (Though, if you're not a braid master, I'd recommend just showing a photo to a professional hairstylist.) See more wedding hairstyles in our gallery. —Lauren Matthews
