Bridal Hair Trends by Angel Montague-Sayers
Our UK Creative Ambassador gives us the lowdown on the must-have, catwalk inspired bridal hair looks of 2015…
Wedding season is well underway, and for 2015 some of the most sought-after bridal hair trends have come straight from the runway.
Many brides are seeking a style that is both stylish and contemporary, and catwalk hair trends tend to tick both of these boxes!
As seen at Sarah Nouri, Della Giovanna, Temperley, Theia, Elizabeth Stuart, Claire Pettibone and Galia Lahav, braids are big news this season. Whether woven with delicate flowers, wrapped into halo braids or imitating undercuts - there are countless varieties to choose from. If your hair is on the finer side, opt for extra extensions to bulk out or boost volume.
As seen at Reem Acra, Vera Wang, Ines De Santo, Lahav, Jim Hjelm, Celestina Agostino and Kelima K, waves were all over the runway and were either swept back, brushed to one side or left to move freely as the models swished down the catwalk. If you are seeking retro waves, be sure to wind hair around the barrel of your Waving Wand in the same direction for every section. Then gently brush the waves out and they’ll merge together. For a more textured, ‘beachy’ finish, alternate the direction that you wind the hair and use your fingers to break up the waves.
As seen at Oscar De La Renta, Stone Fox Bride, Monique Lhullier, Pamela Roland and Pronovias, tailored chignons were huge on the red carpet last year and have now made their way to the bridal catwalks. Perfect if your dress has lots going on or if you want to include hair accessories; these sleek, sharp updos look incredibly fresh and chic. Make sure your hair is in tip-top condition for this look. Treat it to a hair mask every week for a few months in the lead up to the big day, and be sure to invest in a good quality boar bristle brush to help tame through tresses.
2015 is all about intricate, dainty flowers rather than bold blooms, and Marchesa showed us just how it should be done. Worn with effortless waves, their flower pieces gave a nod to the much-requested bohemian bridal hair trend, whilst keeping it elegant and subtle at the same time.
Hair dressed into crowns was seen at Ivy and Aster and is a sure way of making a beauty statement on your big day!
