Over the Memorial Day weekend, Prince Joachim wed Miss Marie Cavallier in a white wedding in Copenhagen, Denmark. The princess bride wore her hair off of her face and neck in a delicate updo. Her curled and pinned hair extensions were secured in the back, and the look was topped off with an elaborate tiara.
While the bride looks relaxed and radiant, this hairdo is actually quite complicated to pull off all by yourself. If you are interested in creating this style on your wedding day, you may want to ask for some assistance from a trusted pal or bridesmaid.
- Step 1: Begin with hair that has been washed the night before so that it has just a little bit of oil in it. Mist hair lightly with water and apply a little bit of mousse or styling gel all over. Brush to distribute it evenly, then blow dry your hair back and away from your face until it's dry. Next, brush hair back and part it gently. Then, secure hair with an elastic into a ponytail.

- Step 2: This is the part where you'll likely need assistance. Add a large extension piece just above your ponytail (I suggest one that is attached to a hair comb) and secure the comb with bobby pins. Have your helper section off the extensions into four pieces of equal thickness. You'll also need to separate your ponytail into one or two sections, depending on how long and thick your hair is.
- Step 3: You'll want to create two loops out of each section of hair. Grab one of the sections and create a loop only going about midway down the hair shaft. Pin hair and make a loop with the remaining half, and pin that one too. Repeat with each section until complete.
- Step 4: Make sure that no pins are visible. If they are, adjust them accordingly. Spray a generous amount of firm-hold hairspray all over your hair. Lastly, gently place your tiara on your head and secure with bobby pins if necessary.
