Will you be rocking mermaid waves or a mussed-up chignon on your big day? We reveal the most luscious looks for your locks in 2014 and pick our favourite bridal hairstyles real brides have been choosing over the last 12 months…
Without a doubt, the prettiest bridal hair trend for 2014 has to be flowers! Zac Posen, Anna Sui and Dolce and Gabbana all used beautiful blooms to decorate their models on the catwalk and it’s a gorgeous look for real brides, too.
From a big, blousy single bloom worn on the side of the head, to smalled flower heads pinned all over the hairstyle, this is one trend we’re sure we’ll see time and again over the coming months.
If you’re growing your hair for the big day, or planning a wedding abroad, you may want to try one of the year’s hottest hair trend – mermaid waves, as seen on the spring 2014 catwalk at Calvin Klein.
Undone hairstyles are also a hot look for brides wanting that boho look. Michael Kors showcased loose tangles around the face and this clever face-framing technique would also work for brides. There were windswept updos at Tom Ford and Rachel Zoe chose Old World-style braids – perfect for brides planning a festival theme.
Want a glamorous look for an Art Deco-inspired day? It was all about the gold details Elie Saab – a warmer, fashionable alternative to silver or diamanté, pick up gold shades in your hair accessories and perhaps even on your gown.
For brides looking for something a little more styled, why not try an ornate ponytail as shown at Valentino and Missoni? This looks especially pretty on brides when they are pulled around to the side.
Retro brides, this one’s for you! The rock star quiff featured at Emilio Pucci – this would work well if you’re planning a 50s-inspired theme and wearing a shorter, tea-length dress.
