1. Loose Waves

For those with long hair, nothing says relaxed boho bride like loose curls. 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.

2. Low Bun

If you think you might prefer to have your hair up, a low bun wedding hairstyle is one of the most popular and easiest to create bridal updos. 

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 Hairspray. That’s one bridal hairstyle that’s going nowhere!

3. Chignon

Another great and sophisticated wedding hair updo is the classic bridal 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.
You can also party-proof your locks with hairspray too!

4. Halo Braid

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.

5. Braided Wedding Hair

Braided wedding hair is 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 - there are so many braided hairstyles out there!

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.

6. Half Up, Half Down Hair

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 hairstyles 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.
