Bridal hairstyles to suit your theme

When it comes to wedding style, bridal hairstyles are just as important as the wedding dress itself. You have decided on your venue, you’ve found an amazing dress, and you’ve settled on the finer details. Now it’s time to choose a bridal hairstyle that reflects your personal style and suits your wedding theme. Whether you’re channelling vintage, modern, country, formal, beachy or casual – we've got plenty of beautiful wedding hair ideas that are sure to help you shine on your special day. 

Vintage wedding hair
For a vintage wedding with old-school charm, consider featuring a lace or jewelled comb, hairpiece or headband in your hair. A twisted up do with braids or loose curls that frame the face would favour a delicate, classic style.

Country wedding hair

Think outdoorsy, floral, relaxed and natural wedding hair for a country setting. Cascading waves and pretty curls suit a wedding in touch with nature and adding feminine flowers to your bridal hairstyle is a bonus!

Formal wedding hair

For a black-tie occasion where the emphasis is on elegance, brides may opt for structured bridal hairstyles that are sleek and sophisticated. Consider a low-rise woven updo or keep it ultra simple with a classy, neat bun. Bridesmaids' hair could be similar or be worn down and curled for a contrast.

Beach wedding hair

A wedding on the beach means that your hairstyle must sustain the weather. A fun event with a combination of heat, wind and sand calls for tousled locks that are deceivingly effortless. Alternatively go for a tight up-do with lots of hairspray to keep your hair neat and out of the way.
