Wedding Hair has become such a personal choice now to each individual. New bridal styles are featuring all the time and, instead of the bride focusing on what the latest wedding hair trend is, it is more about researching and working with your stylist to find what style suits you best and which style incorporates certain features that you would like it to.

Years ago the majority of favoured bridal hairstyles were a little more severe, such as ballerina buns or up-dos featuring a French pleat. These styles are great if you have a fantastic bone structure to show off and are still prevalent, but nowadays people are going for a much softer look. Softer styles tend to feature loose waves and curls hanging down from a pinned-up style, or even hair fully down with maybe a small portion pinned back or off to the side.

If you want to be experimentative, your wedding day is probably not the day to risk this. People who are used to having their hair a certain way, such as some hair on their face or covering their neck, would perhaps feel uncomfortable having something so different. This is why bridal hair trials are crucial to your wedding day.


Plaits and braids really started to became popular in 2011 and are continually growing in popularity within styles—whether it’s full halo braids, waterfall braids or just a plait off to one side.

Up-dos are becoming increasingly softer with looser hair creating messy up-dos. They have become more relaxed in style and are very comfortable to wear.

The chignon is one bridal style that really has withstood the test of time.  Ballerina buns still feature occasionally today, but the real current way to wear a bun these days is on the side—messy or neat, you decide!
