Your BFF (Beauty Find Friday): Bridal Hair Trends
Deciding on your bridal hairstyle is like choosing between fondant or buttercream on your cake. One is so sophisticated, refined with an elegance. Just like you, sometimes. The other is more playful, bubbling over with sweetness. Just like you, sometimes. You need to pick one. Insert frustrated sigh here.
It’s time to let your hair down and relax. When it comes to your wedding style, it’s OK to have a little fun.
“Weddings are beautiful and everyone wants everything perfect, but your hair and dress is something you can play with,” says Michelle Lee, co-owner of Salon Eva Michelle on Newbury Street. She and her partner Eva Mustafai coif dozens of brides each season, so they know the biz inside and out.
“Nowadays everyone does much more creative photography and videography [during their wedding] to have that reality show-like moment. This is so great! I feel like the whole look, including hair, makeup and the dress, can be more playful now.”
No more glued-down updos for you. It’s about style and styling. Perfectly undone. Imperfectly perfect. Your choice. Here are Lee’s favorite bridal hair trends to deliver a little inspiration for your own “I do” ’do.
Reminiscent of embroidery and lace, Mustafai married two different types of braids (traditional and waterfall) to create textures. This is a very romantic style typically used for longer hair, but short hair gals, don’t suffer tress stress. You can always add extensions to create more fullness or add length.
This is true boho chic. Using textures like knots, loops, and twists, Lee crafted the perfectly undone look. You can easily add a gorgeous headpiece or weave tiny blossoms throughout this playful and whimsical style.
Don’t ever worry about growing out short hair for your wedding, unless your dream is of luscious locks behind a cascading veil. If you have a great cut, you can dress it up simply. Lee took waves and accented them with a simple accessory used in a creative way. Think unique bridal combs or delicately adorned bobby pins.
For Celso Enrique, the salon’s senior designer, it’s all about creating the right shape when you have a short haircut. Fitted on the sides, he adds creative twists and braids to draw attention to height. This is the perfect style for any dress, and exposes the elegant neckline for some serious wow factor. Rapunzel, eat your heart out.
