Bridal Hair How-To: Formal, Feminine, Flawless Updo MODERN Facebook fan Kristine Murillo, a stylist for SHE by SoCap extensions, created this stunning look for her friend's wedding this June on Long Island, New York--formal, flawless and ultra feminine.

The bride, Kristen Perri, was going for a vintage couture look," Murillo says.

Step 1. "I used SHE by SoCap clip-in extensions, placing them in areas under the ear to add a little more length and fullness."

Step 2. Next, backcomb the entire crown, leaving out the fringe, using TIGI Masterpiece hairspray.

Step 3. Using a 1-inch curling iron, curl all of the hair that was not teased, blending the extensions and real hair in each curl.

Step 4. In smaller sections, tease the curls and roll them upward to give the roll look on the sides. Then, pin-curl the bottom of the teased crown and place them. Lastly, bring back the fringe and smoothe the flyaways.
