Side-parted, Low Chignon Wedding Hair

Stylist Oscar Blandi's favorite pick: Kelly Ripa

Love the look: Kelly has longer layers framing her heart-shaped face so that it can still be styled and pulled into an updo.

Get the look: Create a dramatic side part and tie hair into an off-center low ponytail. Twist into a slightly messy bun with pieces out of place to create a little texture and bobby-pin the rest in place. Pull the longer layers at the front out to frame the face. I always recommend the Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil when creating a chignon—it really adds shine for a sleek style. Also, my Lacca hairspray works great for this style to keep the tousled look in place so as to still look polished.
