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.

BRAID AF­FAIR

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.

LOOSELY DE­FINED

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.
