Your big day is planned.
You’ve got the dress, the venue, and your wedding Pinterest board is on point. Now all that’s left is the hair. Gone are the days of crispy sausage curls and facelift-giving chignons. Today’s bridal hair is all about loose flowing waves, perfectly undone updos and updated takes on vintage styles. The trick is finding a modern look that won’t fall flat, and won’t spend the day blowing into your eyes, mouth and beloved new-husband. We’ve rounded up the 21 prettiest bridal hair looks to help you decide just what your wedding ‘do should be, complete with tips and tutorials to keep your style looking in-place and picture-perfect all day.

1. The Waterfall Braid

Flowers, and particularly babysbreath, are a gorgeously pretty addition to any wedding hairstyle. The best style for delicate blooms is the Waterfall Braid, as the braid is easy to anchor flowers in, while the loose hair disguises any loose stems. This braid can be tricky to do yourself, but pop by the beauty bar and our stylists will do you a perfect one in thirty minutes or less!

2. The French Braided Headband

Not only does this braid work great with a veil, it also stops hair from blowing into your face at inopportune moments! To create this look, make a deep side part and separate the longer front section of hair you want to braid. Next, rub fingers with a little Redken Braid Aid (this makes it easier to braid and holds your style in place) and take a small piece of hair from near the parting. Then, divide this section into three smaller sections and start to braid, adding hair to each section as you go. Once you’ve reached your ear, tie off the braid and pin the end under the rest of your hair.


3. The 70s Boho Look

So easy to do, and so on-trend right now. The 70′s, and 70′s hair is big right now, and long, flowing tresses will look beautiful at a more relaxed wedding. Just smooth a little Kerastase Elixir Ultime Creme through damp hair before blowdrying, for extra sleekness. Then create a centre parting, and add your 70s hair accessory of choice.

4. The Updated Tuck

5. The Messy Updo

The ultimate modern updo, this look is all about volume and lots of backcombing! For the ultimate in edgy texture, use Redken’s Quick Tease before backcombing.

6. The Romantic Floral

For ultra-romantic wedding hair, create a messier version of the above gibson tuck, and add a floral accessory.

7. The Embellished Doughnut


A super sleek look, use Davines Oi Oil to smooth flyaways and add loads of shine. Then take a hair doughnut, pull hair though the centre hole, and pin it around the doughnut to create you bun. finish by clipping a jewel accessory at the base of the bun.


8. The Classic Blowout

Sometimes, nothing beats a classic bouncy blowout. Our Luxe Blow is just the blowdry for the job. Book into our beauty bar or do it yourself with our handy tutorial.

9. The Side Sweep Updo

Keeping this vintage look soft, with a little texture, is the key to not looking like you’re playing dress-up. Curl hair with ghd Soft Curl Tong, keeping the wand hoizontal, rather than vertical as you curl. Then pin hair to one side, brush through your waves to soften them, before rolling up the ends of the hair and pinning underneath.

10. The Low Pony

Simple and chic, the low pony was all over the runways this season, and makes for a gorgeous understated bridal look. Use Elixer Ultime to smooth down flyways are the roots and mid-lengths, then spray the ends with Tecni Art Volume Pli for a thicker ponytail.

11. The Embellished Updo

Bring an updo to the next level by dotting it all over with jewel hairpins. Our top tip is to spray each pin with hairspray before securing it in the hair – this will give it extra grip.
