After two long years of lockdowns and smaller gatherings, 2022 will be a year when big summer weddings come back full swing. If you’re a bride, it’s your time to shine with a memorable look. Which includes, of course, a ‘wow’ hairstyle that fits with your look and personality!
But before you decide on that show-stopping look, hairstylists always recommend choosing the dress before settling on the hairstyle since the type of gown will influence everything else. Also, take into account if you’ll be wearing a veil, or if you have your heart set on a stunning tiara or special headpiece, a big trend right now in the fashion world.
Just like pale ivory or white bridal gowns enhanced with lace, updos, chignons and upstyles are true classics when it comes to weddings. Here’s how to make them even more current for this year.
If there’s one overarching trend that we’re seeing almost everywhere right now, from fashion to makeup to hair, it’s a relaxed vibe. Everything has to look ‘easy.’ And that mood is drifting over to more formal occasions like weddings, as well. So your bridal chignon now is just a little bit undone, a little bit looser. And it looks amazing with a perfect balayage showcasing paler strands or lowlights at the nape, since the hair will be pulled up.
You prefer to flaunt longer locks on your big day when becoming the new Mrs.?
Glam braids and dramatic ponytails will give you the longer hair feel you’re looking for, but with added dimension and the opportunity to play up the romantic side of a wedding. They also look amazing on textured hair. Or, if you decide to simply let your hair down, think subtle beach waves or loose curls enhanced with a perfect balayage or babylights. Yes, a modern classic look for sure, but still perfectly on trend for bridal days.
If your go-to everyday look is for sleek uncomplicated hair and you want to project this same minimalist image on your wedding day, go for it! Tons of celebrities are currently choosing neat and symmetrical centre parts, so this look is definitely “au goût du jour,”. If you want to play up your beautiful, naturally textured hair, all you need is to add a simple tiara or hair ornament.
But whatever hairstyle you decide to choose, make sure you do a proper test with the dress before your wedding day. That way you can avoid disappointing surprises on one of the happiest days of your life.
