5 Bridal Hair Trends for 2016

Overwhelmed? Do you find yourself scrolling through the internet endlessly seeking the perfect bridal hairstyle? Searching through infinite options, unsure of where to start?

Screen Shot 2016-07-20 at 12.31.40 pm Inspired by this years amazing Bridal Fashion Week, we have carefully selected the 5 must bridal trends for 2016. The perfect guide to help a bride in need! 

We have opted for styles that are simple, creating effortless hairstyles that look great! 

Beachy Waves

Picture soft curls hanging loosely down your back that bounce as you walk down the aisle. A slight sun ray peers through the church window and captures a strand of you hair that highlights the colour hues throughout your hair. By the smile on your soon to be husbands face, you know that you've made the right choice... 

We're absolutely in love with this carefree style that can take you right through from your ceremony to your reception.

Tip: Be prepared for your hair to drop a little though, however don't panic as it will emphasise
the look that you are aiming for!

Pony Chic

We find sometimes that an overdone hairstyle can clutter your wedding attire and theme. As seen in Bridal Fashion week, less is more. Many models were seen in low ponies, that looked sharp and sleek, that brought attention to the beautiful gowns they were wearing. We know runway to real life can alter.

Depending on whether you're more a traditional or modern bride it determines how you wear your pony. Whether you're going for a more sleek look, you can opt for a low or high pony. Or if you want a softer look you can add some light waves to your pony and wear it looser.

Tip: When choosing the height of your pony, either choose from low or high. Choosing a middle height will make your pony stick out and not compliment your chosen style!

Mermaid Braids

Every girl deserves to feel like a princess once in their life, especially on their wedding day right? Channeling your inner Rapunzel you will feel beautiful and elegant in your styled braid. 

The twists and turns texturises your hair and gives off a soft glow. Your braid can completely change your whole look and add an element of grace and beauty. Whether you opt for a french or inverted french braid, waterfall braid or an fishtail braid your chosen style can be left up to your imagination! 

The right style braid can leave you with a dream like presence, leaving you feel amazing!

Tip: If you're wanting to add to your hair, why not opt for some delicate flowers?

Elegant Bun

For the more traditional and conservative bride, we believe an elegant bun will be the perfect choice for you. The great thing about a bun is that there are endless ways that you can style with it! Depending on if you have a fringe or not you can frame your face with soft waves that fall back into your bun. 

Once again you have a choice of choosing between a high or low bun, depending on how comfortable you are with each style. Whether you want a loose messy bun or a more sleek look, the options are completely up to you. 

Tip: If your dress is a high neck, opt for a high messy bun, however if your dress is strapless try for a low bun!

Modern Bob

For the brides with shorter locks, with the perfect style bob you can look both chic and elegant. We love the whole other level of hairstyles that are brought to table by having a bob. It can add another element to a bridal look and be pulled off stunningly.

Whether you are going for a softer look, why not try adding some soft waves through your hair and pinning it to one side. If you're looking for something a little bit sharper, have your hair styled dead straight. Or for the complete carefree look, style your hair in tossed waves! 

Tip: Why not add a beautiful clip or headpiece to your bob to give it a little bit more!

Why not change it up and go for a look you wouldn't have picked before. You'd be surprised with the outcome and feedback you'd get on the day. However the most important factor is to remember to feel beautiful!
