Bridal season has arrived! Spring is here and with summer on the way, Great Lengths are excited to unveil the new S/S 2017 Bridal photography collection, featuring beautifully crafted wedding hairstyles guaranteed to grant the hair wishes and dreams of any bride-to-be.

We love this bold braid tutorial, ideal for summer weddings, follow the steps below to achieve this look.

 You will need:

  • Straightening Irons
  • Clear hair ties
  • A Comb
  • Heat defence spray like I.C.O.N. Reformer (for prepping)
  • A finishing spray like I.C.O.N. Done

How to prepare hair:

Before styling, Holly’s hair was washed, dried and sprayed with a heat defence spray before straightening.


Section the hair from the parting, using the ear as a guide. Comb through the section and pin away all the remaining hair at the back of the head.


Starting at the front of the head take a horizontal section around half an inch thick. Split that section into two equal strands and tie together in a knot. Repeat another section below.


Once you have completed two-knot sections, on the 3rd knot section, incorporate hair from the original knot.


Continue to knot, working down the head incorporating hair from the top section each time.


Continue to knot until you reach the ends and fasten with a clear hair tie. Wrap and pin the knotted braid at the back of the head and add accessories as desired Spritz with a finishing spray like I.C.O.N. Done Finishing Spray
