Twisty Low Buns

Whether your hair is long, short, curly or straight, this effortless hairstyle will look amazing on you. Twist, curl and plait different strands of your hair, then pin it in position to create the look you want. Make sure you carry some hairpins in your purse with you to pin back any stray hairs that fall out of place. But don’t worry too much about this, any hair that comes loose will only add to the casual, messy look!

Side Partings

In 2015 everybody was rocking sharp and sleek central partings on their wedding day, however this year we’ll see a much softer look take over and people will be switching to gorgeous side partings. To get this look style your hair whilst wet to get your parting to stay in place. We love a side parting with loose waves or curls for a bohemian twist on this classic bridal look.

This 1960’s inspired trend is a fun way to inject a little bit of vintage elegance into your big day. Achieving this look is all about volume. First of all backcomb the top layers of your hair and pin it up in the style you would like. You’ll also need hairspray… and lots of it! For more bridal hair inspiration, check out our Pinterest board full of beautiful ideas.

Sleek Side Ponytails

It seems as if side ponytails are going to be making a comeback in 2016! Whether you go for a sleek, classic look or a softer ponytail with delicate waves, this hairstyle is full of potential. If a ponytail doesn’t seem extravagant enough for your wedding day, why not add some plaits or use the hairstyle to show off a pair of statement earrings?

This beautiful hairstyle would be perfect for a fairytale wedding! Show these photos to your hair stylist and ask them to recreate this magical look. If you’re feeling brave, you can try to create the look yourself by curling your hair and loosely plaiting it into a french braid. Pair this hairstyle with a classic, ballgown style dress and you’re good to go!
