7 gorgeous wedding hair ideas

So you’ve got the wedding dress, now you need a stunning hairstyle to complement your look. Here are 7 beautiful wedding hairstyles you’ll want to show your stylist for inspiration, or perhaps one of our exhibiting bridal beauty specialists will be able to create the look for you.

Plaited updo

Whether you opt for a glamorous wraparound mermaid style, or a relaxed side plait leading into a loose bun, plaited updo hairstyles are the perfect way to accentuate and frame your face without detracting from your wedding dress.

Go big and bold with a crazy colourful flower headpiece or crown your locks with an ever-so-elegant yet dainty slide. Hair vines are also a wonderful way to add a statement if you’re keeping your wedding makeup and bridal hair simple.

Sleek bun

Glossy locks are essential for this classy bridal hairstyle, which would look amazing with a satin wedding dress. Ask your hair stylist to add a softer side fringe if you’re worried about the look being too swept back.

The Game of Thrones braid

Whether you’re a die-hard Game of Thrones fan or not, there’s no denying that Daenerys Targaryen is a style icon when it comes to hair inspiration. If you’re blessed with long lengths (or will be faking it with extensions), an interpretation of Daenerys’ intricate flowing locks will be sure to wow.

The Fake Bob

So you want an easy wedding hairstyle that’s simple, different, flattering all without cutting off too much hair – too much to ask? Never. Step in the faux bob, an artfully crafted hair tuck without the commitment of a risky hair chop pre-wedding.

Loose and wavy

You certainly can’t go wrong your hair down and a curly wedding hairstyle for your big day. Universally flattering and always beautiful, brides with short to medium length hair could pull off both tight and relaxed curls, whilst long hair looks amazing with flowing boho waves.

Hollywood waves

Feel like an A-lister on your big day with a celebrity wedding hairstyle, like Emma Stone’s showstopping Hollywood waves. Go for red lipstick (if you dare with your white dress!) for maximum glam, or keep your makeup delicate and accessorise with drop earrings.
