MODERN challenged Mustafa Avci to create a special-occasion updo perfect for a formal wedding.

Ask any Instagrammer who follows pro beauty pages, the king of Hollywood glam is Mustafa Avci, @hairsalonm and @mustafasworkshop. Best known for his “Hollywood Waves,” that he now teaches in workshops across the country, Avci credits a regram from @modernsalon for propelling him into the spotlight and giving him the opportunity to boost his industry presence.

MODERN challenged Avci with creating a special-occasion look fit for a bride or bridesmaid, and he delivered.

“When I created this look, I was inspired by the Hollywood glamour of the past,” Avci says. “Starlets like Joan Bennett, Debra Paget, Gene Tierney and Vivien Leigh used to wear waves combined with simple updos. They were clean and sleek, with just the right amount of wave.”
