Curly, Half-Up Wedding Hairstyle

There are many ways to make your wedding hairstyle romantic. Whether it's long and loose waves, a wispy updo, or a combination of both, you'll not only want your locks to look as lovely as ever on your big day but to last through the reception and after party. We consulted Neutrogena Hairstylist Sam Leonardi for his top tress tips.

Looking to rock a swoon-worthy updo? Contrary to popular belief, Leonardi suggests washing your hair the morning of your wedding. "I recommend clean hair because it has more volume and the style will last longer," suggests Leonardi. "I prefer to work with fresh hair over oily hair because if hair needs taming, setting products and hairspray will give it the right texture."

As for those brides looking to rock long wavy locks, go for a humidity-proof hairspray. "Humidity can drag curls down," says Leonardi. "When using a curling iron, spray before and after to set the curl." And no matter which 'do you choose, flyaways are always a threat. To tame those rebel tresses Leonardi suggests using a strong humidity-proof hairspray and Neutrogena's Triple Repair Leave-In Treatment. "The cream will help secure flyaways and the hairspray will provide strength to hold them down."
