Aveda guest hair artist Jon Reyman, who created the style for Leanne Marshall’s Fall 2016 show , explained that the intricately knotted braids were inspired by the Macramé cobra knot, a stitch technique that translated beautifully for the catwalk collection.

While we recommend having your stylist to recreate this for your wedding day {less stressful}, if you want to try it yourself, here’s Reyman’s step by step…
Step 1: First, spray Aveda Thickening Tonic in your hair and blow dry.
Step 2: Create a centre part and divide the hair into three sections. Secure the middle section into a ponytail at the nape of the neck.
Step 3: Take the left section, make a loop and bring over the ponytail base and under the right section. While holding this formation in place, take the right section under pony base and through the loop on the left side. Tighten together to make a knot.
Step 4: Begin the above process again, but now starting with the right section; keep each knotted section taut as you continue this pattern until the right and left sections are at the ends. Tuck the ends under the pony base and secure with two pins.
Step 5: Set with Endless Styles with Control Force Hair Spray.
