Getting married? Feeling a little overwhelmed when it comes to choosing your bridal ‘do? Well, stop stressing and just keep on reading, because we’ve rounded up a rather large group of celebrity wedding-esque hairstyles, which will no doubt be a feast for your bride-to-be eyes. Awesome, huh?
But before you start clicking through our oh-so-inspiring gallery, we’ve snagged some awesome hair tips and tricks from Savvy Brides’ Mandy Daddia, so that when it comes to bridal hairstyle and accessories trends, you’re totally in the know…
SAVVY BRIDES’ HAIR NOTE #1: severe updos are no longer popular as brides look to softer, more natural looking hair. Opting for loose, flowing curls or a low side bun is a lovely idea.
SAVVY BRIDES’ HAIR NOTE #2: brides love the instant understated glamour that hair accessories give. Hair flowers – whether silk or real – are very trendy for beach wedding brides right now, and ornate, jewelled and intricate hairpieces are also a must-have accessory. For the individual bride, a milliner can use the gown as inspiration to create an amazing bespoke headpiece.
SAVVY BRIDES’ HAIR NOTE #3: a veil is not just a simple veil anymore. More brides are opting for pretty headpieces with silk floral designs, tulle or crystals, or birdcage veils with sweet ‘50s-style waisted gowns. Soft silk tulle veils are also popular because they’re light and sheer and photograph beautifully. Striking mantilla or lace edged veils have also spiked in popularity.
SAVVY BRIDES’ HAIR NOTE #4: many brides are mixing up their headwear. Lots of women are now choosing to wear a traditional veil for the ceremony, and then opting for a sparkling jewelled headpiece once photographs have been taken.
SAVVY BRIDES’ HAIR NOTE #5: it is very important that the veil matches the dress. There are so many variants of ivory that simply having an ivory veil and an ivory dress does not necessarily mean they will match perfectly.
SAVVY BRIDES’ HAIR NOTE #6: completing a hair trial prior to the big day is a very smart idea. The bride should bring the exact accessories she plans to wear to the styling session so she can see how they look and feel in the hair.
