It may not feel like it but autumn is officially here and with it come the bells, and belles, of wedding season. And with each new wedding season comes a new batch of bridal hair trends to wade through, clogging up your Pinterest inspo board when you could be deciding on flowers or working out the all-important seating arrangements instead. If you’re lucky enough to be tying the knot this autumn, we’ve done the legwork for you and picked three of the coolest trending bridal hair styles.
The Relaxed Up-Do
When a lot of us think “bridal hair”, we think traditional, stiff up-do’s with three cans of hairspray and about a billion sneaky bobby pins, right? Well, forget that. Call it the Meghan Markle effect, call it whatever you like, but the reign of stiff bouffant wedding hair is over. The messy bun has become Markle’s go-to beauty look when attending to her royal duties, and she wore a slightly more polished version when she married Prince Harry. Under her veil was a low slung chignon with a slightly undone vibe that apparently took only 45 minutes to style! We’re predicting lots of textured, messy ponytails and top knots, as well as chignon styles as modern brides move away from outdated, voluminous styles.
Waves are timeless, and what bride doesn’t want to look and feel timeless on her big day? The most recent Bridal Fashion Week was awash with undone waves, dubbed “no-care hair” and possibly an extension of the royal wedding-inspired messy buns we just mentioned. We just love the romantic look of a soft, tousled mane under a veil, tiara or headband for a more subdued take on bridal accessorising.
Cool Bride Braids
Waves and textured up-do’s still not quite relaxed enough for you? Well, that’s okay, Miss Chill Bride 2019, we’ve got something even cooler for you – braids, duh. Relatively simple to style, usually long-lasting without tons of product and effortlessly chic, bridal braids should be every cool girl’s go-to this season. And with so many styles of braid to choose from, there’s bound to be one for everyone and every style of wedding.
So there it is, the Dextress rundown of the coolest bridal hair trends for 2019. Planning your own nuptials? Give us a call and organise a consultation for yourself and your bridal party – we’ll have you saying “I do” in no time!
