The beginning of 2020 was a fresh start for everybody, but it's even more exciting for you, if it's your wedding year! You'll have countless things to be organising, not least of all your hairstyle for the big day. Ensuring it suits not only your dress, your face shape and your overall aesthetic can be a difficult task, but artistic director of London-based Millimetre Salon Group and award-winning session stylist Joseph Koniak highlights some of the key bridal hair trends for 2020 to suit any style!
Suitable for long, short, curly and straight hair, braids are a go-to bridal look which works for every bride. With lots of ways to create the perfect braids, from soft and romantic to boho and whimsical, braids will remain timeless.
For brides who want to step away from the traditional veil, a flower crown is a great alternative to add a bright and beautiful finishing touch to your hairstyle. Add a fresh and boho feeling to your bridal look with a bright flower crown or turn to muted colours for an autumn wedding. Placed over gently tumbled waves, the flower crown adds instant effortlessness.
Embellished and padded headbands have taken over the fashion world, from the catwalk to the high-street, and will suit ultra-chic brides equally well on their wedding day. White silk with pearls will tone in beautifully with an extravagant gown, while a minimal gown can be
paired with an opulently embellished headband. Wear with a slick middle parting for a stylish crowning glory.
Bows and ribbons
For the traditional bride, it doesn’t get more classic than ribbons and bows. Whether your bridal hairstyle is loose waves or a structured up-do, a small ribbon or beautiful bow is the perfect finishing touch.
