Behind The Scenes of a Hair Video: How to Create A Braided Bun

That's a wrap!
A few weeks ago, I hinted on Instagram that I was working on a fun project for my day job (beauty director at Bridesif you're new here...!). And now I can finally share it: I was busy working with a great team to shoot a series of four hair how-to videos with the amazing NYC stylist, Matt Fugate of the Sally Hershberger Downtown salon.

I am so happy with the way the videos turned out! Matt is amazing (so cool, so talented, so freakin' good on camera), our models were gorg, and the styles turned out so pretty. 

Since we're Brides, all of the hairstyles are obviously wedding-appropriate, but they're definitely not only for weddings. Any of them would be awesome for any special occasion, date, Tuesday, etc. (Translation: The videos are totally worth watching even if you're not a bride-to-be!)

Above are a few behind-the-scenes photos I snapped at the shoot, and below, is the first video in the series, Braided Bun. The following three will launch over the next few weeks. Check it out (it's short!) and then please let me know what you think. I'm dying to make more and would love to hear your honest thoughts. Plus, any beauty video requests that you have! What would you love to see on video?
Thanks for watching!
