An intricate-yet-soft side chignon, embellished with a plump fishtail braid, created by Alexandra Wilson (@alexandralee) took home the top prize in the #modernsexybride hairstyle contest, sponsored by Sexy Hair and MODERN SALON. As a reward for her incredible work, Alexandra is heading to Los Angeles for a two-day class at the brand-new Sexy Hair Academy. She’ll study with Sexy Hair’s Rafe Hardy and Insta-star @lalasupdos, aka Lala Chihaia, in the brand-new, state-of-the-art facility.

Watson also grabbed two runner-up slots—for her variations on crisscross curled and wrapped styles adorned with tiny seed pearls. (The blue color melt is a standout add-on!)

Soft romantic updo with some fishtails 💗 • Used my @hottoolspro curl bar set, 1” and 1 1/4” irons, the set is interchangeable to 4 different size irons which is awesome cause sometimes you need different size irons for 1 style 💁‍♀️ • And I used @biolage frizz control spray prior to styling • Hair vine from @galvezhairdesign • . . . #hottoolspro #hottools #behindthechair @behindthechair_com #thebtcteam #americansalon #modernsalon #modernsalon100 #beautylaunchpad #bridalinspo #upstyle #updo #beyondtheponytail #saloncentric #ittakesapro #modernsexybride #stylistssupportingstylists #hotonbeauty #hairinspo #biolage #biolagepartner #hairofinstagram #hairgoals #hairoftheday #brides #cosmopolitan #allure #maneaddicts

OR both?!!! 💗 let me know!!! 💁‍♀️ | Also, I’m in love with these pearl hair pins from @galvezhairdesign, they are flexible so you can shape them to fit any hairstyle 😍| . . . . #modernsalon #modernsalon100 #behindthechair #THEBTCTEAM #btcpics #beautylaunchpad #beyondtheponytail #bride #americansalon #allaboutdahair #allure #cosmopolitan #brides #bridalinspo #wedding #weddinghair #theknot #weddingwire #hairstyle #hairofinstagram #hairoftheday #cosmoprofbeauty #licensedtocreate #updo #upstyle #hairgoals #hairdo #stylistssupportingstylists #hotonbeauty #modernsexybride

Recognition also went to runner-up Alex Pelerossi, (@alex_haircraft) for her low, lived-in, cross-wrapped chignon on penny red hair, and to @samirasjewelry for a looped and braided look that makes the most of mocha highlights.

To support these artists as they create #modernsexybride hairstyles for their clients moving forward, Sexy Hair is sending each runner-up a Sexy Hair Bridal Kit, containing Healthy Sexy Hair So Touchable Hair Spray, Healthy Sexy Hair Styling Paste, HOT Sexy Hair Support Me and Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Light. 

Congrats to all!
