Hairdresser brand Headmasters has put a guide together for bridal season, showing a number of different styles you can go for, along with accessories you might include.
Let this inspire your chosen look – whether you’re the bride or a bridesmaid.
Tips for getting the right do
Clare Hansford, creative ambassador at Headmasters, recommends the following:
- Have a consultation and a trial to check you’re happy with how everything looks and feels before the big day.
- In the months before the big day, have minimal trims to keep the ends healthy.
- Show your stylist a picture of your dress as the neckline can help inform the style you go for.
- Pack a travel kit with you containing travel sized products like hairspray and bobby pins for touch ups on the day.
This classic look can suit a dress with a high neckline, so your hair doesn’t cover it.
It’s also great for destination weddings when temperatures will be higher.
A full, volumised look that can be made more ‘bohemian’ with the addition of a flower headband and accessories.
If your dress has a low back, this style can work will to draw attention to that.
Add in a cuff at the top of the ponytail for extra interest and detailing.
This suits both those with thick hair and those who want to create the illusion of having fuller hair.
It takes the weight of your face so you don’t have to keep touching it, while still allowing it to look long.
This is ideal for those who want their hair off their face while still having some drama and volume.
It’s also great for drawing attention to a neckline or jewellery.
Full glam, this one will suit those who feel best with their hair being the star of the show.
Add in a clip to take some weight off your face, or let it hang down.
