Take some inspiration from these top bridal hair trends your sure to love.

The Minimalist Up Do

Stay sweet, sleek, and oh so sophisticated with a minimalist updo. This hair trend is making a comeback, and for very good reasons. The minimalist updo is best achieved by making a big, smooth and loose chignon that falls low, close to the back of the neck. This works to highlight the facial features, and accentuates the detail on the gown.

The Edgy Back Brush

Take a section of hair on each side of the temple, and brush it back and under. Let the other sections of hair fall freely to achieve a sleek, sexy, edgy look perfect for more daring wedding themes. This works best with a detailed, body hugging gown.

The Romantic Braid

Braids aren’t just for children, and the romantic side braid proves that. Add an extra touch of fantasy and romance to your special day by having your hair braided and twisted to one side. This makes for a very natural, organic, and effortless look perfect for garden weddings and outdoor receptions.

The Adorned

Whatever the hairstyle you choose, you can opt to have it plain and simple, or adorned with beautiful bejewelled hair clips and flowers. This works best with gowns that are on the simpler side of the spectrum. Keep in mind that a bride with an adorned hairstyle doesn’t need quite as much jewellery. Keep the bling to a minimum if you’re leveraging this ageless look.
