Are you a June bride or are you planning to say your “I dos” on the last quarter of the year? If you are soon to march down the aisle, you should already have a bridal gown picked out. The next thing to do would be to plan your bridal makeup and hairstyle to complete your look. The good news is that there are plenty of fashion shows for Spring 2014 where you can get look inspirations from. Whether you’re wearing a romantic bridal gown, a glittery column white dress or a classic off-shoulder bridal gown, the look won’t be complete without a matching hairstyle. Here, we will count down the most popular hairstyles for brides which you can borrow ideas from when you finally walk down the aisle.
The Top 5 Hairstyles for Brides from Spring 2014 Fashion Shows
When looking for a hairstyle to wear on your wedding day, there are a couple of things to consider. First, you’d want the hairstyle to show off instead of hide your dress. If you are wearing an off-shoulder gown, for example, you can wear an updo or wear your hair down. If you’re wearing a full-sleeved bridal ensemble, you may want to put your hair up in a classic style so you won’t look too old-fashioned. A bridal gown with a daring bodice can be worn with a romantic braid in an updo style to show off the wearer’s shoulders.
The second thing to consider is the personality of the bride, along with her facial features. If your jawline is prominent, for example, wearing your hair up may look too severe – so a layered hairstyle that frames your face and softens your features might work better.
For more bridal hairstyle ideas, here are the most popular ‘dos from the recent Spring 2014 fashion shows:
- The Slicked-Back Hairstyle
If you’re wearing a very detailed wedding dress, you’d want it to be the highlight of your outfit. As such, a slicked-back style with clean lines makes for the perfect hairstyle. It’s also trendy, considering how designers like Vera Wang, Jason Wu and Victoria Beckham had their models on the runways wearing low, sleek ponytails.
- A 60s Bouffant!
Nothing exudes romance more than a retro look, and the bouffant popularized in the 1960s are making a huge comeback. It’s great for a beach wedding or it can be paired with a dress that’s off the shoulders to show off the graceful lines of the bride’s neck.
- A Deep Side Part
If you don’t want to alter your look that much during your wedding day, simply changing the partition of your hair from the middle to the side makes a huge difference. Leave the hair down or create loose, sexy waves – but make sure that the partition is on the right side, just a few inches above your right ear.
- Flowers as Hair Accessories
Another hot trend is using flowers as hair accessories. Since it’s spring time, designers did not have a hard time looking for beautiful blooms to accessorize their models’ locks with. If you’re using this trend as a hairstyle inspiration for your own wedding, you can take your pick from a sprinkling of small flowers, a full crown of gorgeous blooms, or one single orchid or rose decorating your French twist.
- Braids that Crown the Head
Finally, braids are an all-time favorite hairstyle for brides. Fishtail braids made a huge comeback this fashion season, so you can use this with a matching floral accent. You can also have your stylist create a braid that crowns your head to make your overall look romantic, soft and ultra-feminine.
