What crown will you choose?
Unconventional or traditional. Carefree or sleek. Long or short. We take to the catwalk to find your wedding-day look.
S/S ’18 bridal hair
Whether you’re loved up or single, planning a wedding or just observing, there’s something magical about bridal looks. And magic is exactly how we’d describe the looks that walked down the runways at the spring/ summer ’ 18 bridal weeks around the world. We searched the latest catwalks, and went backstage to find the prettiest hair ideas and how to achieve them.
Intricate hair designs flatter simple necklines and lowback designs. Create a focal point with modern plaits, as seen on Berta’s runway, or along your middle parting like at the Marchesa show. You’ll need a pro’s help, as the sectioning is important for an Insta-worthy result.
PREP YOUR HAIR WITH A FEW DROPS OF SERUM ON FINE HAIR, OR HAIR OIL ON THICK OR CURLY HAIR. THIS STEP HELPS DEFY FRIZZ IN ANY WEATHER.
To create the casual waves seen at Berta, tong your lengths with a wide-barrel curling iron. Make sure to leave the ends out so that it doesn’t look too perfect. Add an accessory for glam. If you’re loving curls, tease them for high volume as the models at Claire Pettibone did.
TIED HIGH OR LOW
Amp up a sleek ponytail with a simple ribbon like they did at the Uma Wang show. Or do as they did at Lela Rose, and twist your ends into a romantic chignon. A top knot, as seen at Inbal Dror, flatters all face shapes and looks ultra feminine with a glittering accessory.
YOUR GLAM MUST HAVES
From a smudge-proof mascara to shadows that flatter and radianceenhancing foundation, we’ve got all the makeup you need to perfect your own signature wedding style.
