From chic updos to cute hair accessories and twists, here is everything you need to know about hair to pair with all wedding themes.

Half bun


Bridal hair

We’ve seen the resurrection of the high bun and we all know that the half up/half down is one of the most coveted bridal ‘dos. It’s, therefore, hardly surprising that a hybrid would be created. The half up takes the top section of your hair, pins it back and crafts it into a high bun, while still leaving length that can be straightened, scrunched, and curled.

To the side


Bridal hair

Hair worn to the side has the benefit of looking more styled than your average down ‘do, but natural enough to still be you. For 2017, the bridal side swept hair trend is mixed up because it involves nothing more than simply sweeping hair to a designated side and pinning it in place. Forget doing anything more elaborate to your ‘down’ side other than scrunching with a sea salt spray.

Centre parting

If you’re a traditionalist at heart and want your hair styled in an updo, know that the centre parting is back. So, however you opt to wear your locks, work to carve out a strong middle parting and style from there. To ensure that the parting stays fierce, section with a tail comb and secure into position with a good hairspray.


Hair twists

 2016 saw brides opt for braids, but 2017 is going to be all about the twist. Achieve the must-have bridal updo by sectioning the hair (we suggest 4 or 5 sections on mid-length hair). Then work to softly twist each section towards the back, tease into a bun shape and pin.  We’re talking soft and subtle undone twists that all serve to pin the hair back in a soft and whimsical way. To make this even more romantic, work in some bridal flowers or diamante slides.


Bridal hair

If you consider yourself a non-conventional bride, you’ll be looking for a hairstyle that reflects your individualism. Good news for you then; the beehive is back and it’s bigger than ever! Aim for height and arm yourself with a hairspray that provides hold from day to night for gravity defying hair!
