Once you’ve decided to do your own wedding hair, the next step is choosing the best style for you. But from short wedding hair to bridal updos, there are so many wedding hairstyles to choose from! And don’t get started on bridal hair pieces.
Whether you’re pinning ‘wedding hairstyles updo’ or googling ‘wedding hairstyles down’, here are our top wedding hair ideas for summer 2018.
For those with long hair, nothing says relaxed boho bride like loose and curly hair. The trick is to keep a carefree bounce from the first step down the aisle to the last move on the dancefloor.
In the run-up to the big day, nourish your hair with John Frieda Nourishing Oil Elixir once a week for healthy, flowing locks. Then the night before, wash your hair with Luxurious Volume Shampoo and Conditioner for soft, full-looking hair.
The second you’re done with the curling tongs, secure your waves with Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Intense Hold Hairspray for fluid, natural movement that lasts.
If you think you might prefer to have your hair up, a low bun is one of the most popular bridal updos and pretty up there in terms of easy wedding hairstyles.
Texture is the secret to the perfect low bun. So apply Luxurious Volume Perfectly Full Mousse to wet hair and blow-dry as normal. Once all pinned in place, keep it there with Luxurious Volume Forever Full Hairapray. That’s one bridal hairstyle that’s going nowhere!
If you want to go with hair up, another great option, and surely the most sophisticated of all wedding updos - the classic chignon. Smooth is the aim of the game so use John Frieda Frizz Ease Serum before styling. Then with Frizz Ease Secret Agent Touch-Up Crème in your handbag for any flyaways, you can forget about your hair and party on until the small hours.
Struggling to find wedding hairstyles for short hair? The halo braid is a cute, flirty style that’s as fun as your day. It’s also one of the styles that looks great on bridesmaids, the mother-of-the-bride and even flower girls.
If you like defined curls, prep your hair the night before with John Frieda Full Repair Deep Conditioner for super soft, hydrated strands. But if beach-tousled waves are more your vibe, spray damp hair with Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray for a wedding hairstyle that says cool surf bride.
Plaits and braids
Wedding braids, so hot right now. But will it be a French plait for the chic, ‘put together’ look or a fishtail braid for a modern, deconstructed style. And there’s more to choose from - waterfall braids, dutch braids, spiral braids, twist braids - all the braids!
Whichever one you choose, it’ll need a good spritz of hairspray to keep it in place all day. We recommend Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Flexible Hold Hairspray.
Half Up, Half Down
Effortlessly pretty, there are half up half down hairstyles to suit everyone! A half up half down bun, also called the ‘hun’, is the look watch out for. And good news if you have a bob or a lob because there are lots of half up half down styles for you too. The look works best with slightly curled hair so enhance your natural waves with Frizz Ease Curl Reviver Mousse or give your straight hair some oomph with Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray and get the tongs through it.
There’s more to wedding hair accessories than veils. Bridal headpieces can add a touch of individuality to your wedding day look, and there’s so much out there right now with vintage-style birdcage veils, flower crowns and glitzy bows just some of the hair accessories predicted to be big for 2018.
If you have fine hair, keep the accessory in place and use something to give your hair texture like Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray.
And there we have it. All gorgeous, all very do-able styles. And once you’ve selected your summer wedding look, you can relax knowing that on the big day, your bridal hair will be exactly how you want it all day long.
