Love is in the air as bridal season is in full swing. Spring/summer bridal hair is romantic, elegant and understated. Brides have every reason to ensure every strand is in place for their special day. This season, however, they are opting for more unfinished, natural, unfussy styles. Inspiration is all around, from the ballet to the country fields and everywhere in between. Long hair is being left free to blow in the wind. Updos are half-done on purpose and soft coils are free to create their own statements underneath elaborate headdress pieces adorned with crystals, pearls and lace. Here are a few styles that are suitable for the uptown or boho bride alike.
The timeless ballerina bun is a staple among many brides this season. The bun height and width is all about preference. The variations go from low, to high, small, medium and to more elaborate wide versions. The look can go from the church to the reception and even if a few hairs are out of place, that accents the style versus taking away from it. The untidy bun or the prim, sleek version is equally elegant and will depend on the personality, style of dress and setting of the wedding. Either way, the ballerina bun is graceful and sophisticated just like a prima ballerina.
Pin curls, victory rolls and the side sweep are three vintage styles that originated in years past, but are still favorites among brides on their special day. Each vintage style can be combined to create a unique look based on taste, hair length and whether or not a veil or other hair accessory will be worn during the ceremony. Vintage styles scream classy and timeless.
The French twist was once “the” wedding hairstyle. A wedding day staple, its popularity is back and better than ever. The classic style can be worn a variety of ways, from messy and tousled to smooth and neat. It’s the perfect style to accommodate headdresses, veils and hats. The chic updo exudes grace and charm for every modern bride.
