Updo, down-do, what do you do when it comes to selecting a current but glamorous wedding hairstyle? We went to one of Tinseltown’s “mane” men, celebrity hairstylist Kim Vo, to get his take on today’s hottest wedding hairstyles. Kim says:

“Right now, the hottest trend in wedding hairstyles, hands-down, is the side bun. An homage to Greek goddess hair, it’s a fabulous mixture of playful and sexy that can really set off a glamorous wedding look.

In order to achieve this wedding updo, start with smooth, blown out hair. Create a strong side part, then pull hair back to a low side ponytail and secure with a clear elastic. Next, use a 1″ barrel curling iron to curl the ends of the pony, creating volume and shine. Twist the ponytail into a bun over its base, leaving one long piece loose to wrap around the finished bun. Secure the side bun in place using bobby pins that match your hair color, then wrap the remaining piece of hair around the bun to hide pins, then pin it in place underneath the bun.

The shinier your hair is, the more polished and elegant this side bun hairstyle will look. I suggest a few dabs of  Kim Vo Perfect Polish to add a high gloss finish to your gorgeous wedding hairstyle. It’s all about being glowing and glamorous on your big day!”
