Get Monique’s timelessly elegant bridal half-up style using go-to products from Kenra Professional. Finish this bridal style with Kenra's Volume Spray 25 for super hold that lasts long after the last picture has been taken and the dancing stops.

STEP 1: Prep hair with Volume Mousse 12 and blow 70% dry. Continue to blow dry in sections, over directing a round brush at the roots to add volume.

STEP 2: Create a horseshoe section on top and divide the rest of the hair into quadrants.

STEP 3: Spray Thermal Styling Spray 19 onto 1-inch diagonal back sections and curl with a 1-inch wand. Pin each curl to let cool.

STEP 4: Create a horizon section above occipital and create a singular braid. Secure with band. Wrap braid flat in circular motion and secure with bobby pins. This will be your anchor for your curls or veil. Use Matte Texture Putty to take away flyaways.

STEP 5: Loosely twist 2-inch sections away from face. Pinch mid-twist with one hand and the ends with the other. Push the pinched hair up while holding the ends of the hair tight to create a ruche. Secure into the braid. Use Matte Texture Putty to tame flyaways.

STEP 6: Use a fine tooth comb or the back of your comb to the tame flyaways as you spray Volume Spray 25 to finish.
