Wedding Wednesdays: Bring Your 'A' Game

Since the first episode of the Pretty Little Liars final season aired last night, we thought it was only fitting to share Cosmo's recent feature of bride-to-be Sasha Pieterse--or as you may know her--Ms. Alison DiLaurentis. Hence the "Bring Your 'A' Game". You might recall, Ms. Pieterse got engaged to her fiancĂ©, Hudson Sheaffer, in December 2015. They've been planning their wedding ever since! The big day for these lovebirds is sometime this May. Recently, Ms. Pieterse got to test out some wedding day hairdos compliments of Cosmo and share her love story. Check out this bohemian-chic bride's subtle and sleek style and get inspired to devour the details of your own wedding look!

Baby's Breath-Adorned, Twisted Style

Step 1: Create a subtle wave in your hair with a curling iron. Wrap the hair around the iron in opposite directions so the waves aren't uniform. Remember to wrap the pieces of hair that surround your face back and around the barrel, so they frame your face rather than curl toward it.

Step 2: Take two strands of hair above your right temple (about 1/2-inch thick), and start twisting them. When you reach the area directly underneath the crown of your head, secure the pieces with two bobby pins in an "X" formation.

Step 3: Repeat on the left side.

Step 4: Carefully insert a few sprigs of baby's breath to complete your look. Spray your strands with medium-hold hair spray to keep everything in place.

A Darling Dutch Braid

Step 1: Create a Dutch braid. Start braiding your hair at the crown of your head, crossing the pieces under one another rather than over. This technique gives you that 3-D effect, where the braid appears to be sitting atop your head rather than woven into your hair.

Step 2: Continue braiding until you reach your ends. Secure with a clear elastic.

Step 3: Wrap a sliver of hair around the hair tie to conceal it. Keep it in place with two bobby pins that match your hair color, so they aren't visible.

A Sweet, Milkmaid-Braided Updo

Step 1: Add subtle texture to your hair with a curling iron. Again, wrap your strands of hair around the barrel of an iron in opposite directions to keep the look more relaxed and less polished.

Step 2: Dutch braid a 3-inch section of hair. Start an inch back from your hairline in line with your right temple.

Step 3: Braid it all the way back to the nape of your neck. Use your hairline as a guide and continue to braid it all the way to the ends.

Step 4: Keep it from unraveling with a clear elastic.

Step 5: Repeat on the left side.

Step 6: Take the ends of the braid on the right side, and position the braid so it hugs the back of your head. If you have long hair, fold the braid to create a milkmaid effect, pinning it on the sides and by the nape of your neck. Then repeat on the left side.

Could Sasha be anymore stunning? Just gorgeous! And these Cosmo hairdos are perfect for any bride. Catch Alison on Tuesday nights as the Pretty Little Liars series draws to a close and get inspired by Sasha to devour the details of your very own wedding day style. Wishing the future Mrs. Sheaffer a happily ever after!
