Hi. My name is Claire Coleman. I'm a hairstylist, and I'm going to show you how to do a Grecian style updo for a wedding. First thing we're going to do is we're going to use a string or a ribbon or something that matches your dress and we're going to be wrapping it around the hair. About a yard and a half should be enough. We're also going to be using texture spray and we're going to spray that all over the hair. And then we're going to be taking our curling iron, about one and a half inches and curl all of the hair. And we always curl away from the face so it opens the face up. And you're going to curl from roots to ends just to make sure that everything gets covered while you're curling the hair. And we're going to turn and we're going to take a halo section. So a round section right in the crown of the hair. So we're going to keep everything out on the sides. And once we get it all separated, we're going to secure it with a hair tie, smooth it out. And we want it to be really high on the hair because we're going to be building up on top of it. And then we're going to roll it into a bun. And just twist. So once you get a bun in it doesn't have to be very clean. This is a little bit of a messy style so you could have a lot of room for error. So we're just going to start taking sections of the hair, probably starting from the bottom and we're just going to kind of follow the way that the hair curls and just pin and wrap around this bun just to create a little dimension and shape. And you can keep the ends out and tuck them in later to see where they fall. But this is going to be the beginning of your shape. Sections are about an inch thick vertically. And just keep wrapping around and keep everything nice and loose. We don't want it to look too tight. And you can choose to do a side part with this if you want. It's not necessary. A lot of people just like a nice straight back look. Now after you get the basis of what you want your shape to look like for your hair, you're going to take your ribbon and begin wrapping around. I like to do one wrap and then secure that with a bobby pin at the base. And then continue wrapping into the hair. And if you feel like your ribbon has kind of pressed into your hair you can take a comb and you can pull some of your curls out like this just to make sure that you're getting the right shape. All right. So that looks like from the back and from the front. My name is Claire Coleman, and I just showed you how to do a Grecian style for a wedding hair updo.
