Who’d have thought getting braids and plaiting your hair would be acceptable to grown women… especially a bride!
Yet, when it comes to bridal hair styling, braids and plaits are more popular than ever, with the most intricate and artistic weaves being incorporated into some of the most elegant hairstyles. And it’s not just brides… check out any red carpet event these days and you’ll spot glamour girls like Blake Lively walking out with a weave or two.
It’s best to start with a classic look, then by adding a braid it makes the hair itself become the accessory and artwork.
With many different kinds of braids and a range of plaiting techniques, these styles can take us on a journey full of glamourous, gorgeous, fun or playful ‘twists and turns’.
There are over 40 different styles and techniques to choose from including: Basket weave, fish tail, French braid, Mermaid, bread basket, insideout, fishbone, zigzag, cascade, waterfall, milk maid… the list goes on!
The style should reflect your bridal theme, and be chosen to suit the length, thickness and texture of your hair. From the boho to the vintage classic, a simple plait or an intricate weave will add just that little bit of originality to your look… plus a hint of girly glamour.
Turn your locks into a visual feast.
