More Great Wedding Hairstyle Ideas – The Influence of Spring
Whilst winter weddings will have been influenced by smoother, sleeker hair – much of it worn in classic chignons, elegant upswings with bangs, and loose locks – spring brings with it a lightness that is translated into curls, a more messy feel and an element of fun.
Here are 4 hair ideas for spring brides:
Chignon with side-braid
The side-braid is still very much in evidence, although there is a messier appeal to it. Side part the hair into a ponytail leaving about an inch of loose hair closest to the face, which you braid, leaving a few stray hairs to frame the face. Secure with an elastic. Loosen it a little and then combine with the rest of the hair which you wrap into a bun, held in place with classic u-shape hair pins. The secret is not to wash your hair on the day, or it won’t stay in place.
Sleek, thick high ponytail
Use this style if you’re showing off a wonderful neckline or have a long neck. Flat iron the hair first. Either side part, or scrape hair off the face (depends on the shape of your face) into a tight pony at the back of the head – placement will again depend on the shape of the head. Use a hair piece for the pony tail, or if you have enough of it, your own.
The twist is the new braid. If your hair is long and full, wear slightly messy (just washed hair is probably best for this). Part hair in the middle. Take two strands from the front crown on either side of the face and twist gently to the back of the head. Hold in place with something glittery or use flowers. For shorter hair, play with twists in half-up styles, or down with a small twist at the hairline.
This is great for a classic look. Use a narrow headband on the front of the head with the hair close to the head until the band, after which you create volume behind, hair in an upswing behind the head, either in a French twist or in a braided bun just above the nape of the neck.
Happy Wedding Planning!
