As a seasoned wedding hairstylist and stylist of choice some of the top A-list clients, there’s nothing Maggie T doesn’t know about bridal hair! So if you’re planning to say ‘I do’ towards the end of this year, read on for her top five winter wedding hairstyles, perfect for colder climes and higher necklines…
If you’re a perfectionist at heart, don’t have your special day any other way! Opt for a slicked-back style (great if you’re prone to frizz or flyaways!) and a girly ballerina bun. Add a little texture by finishing with an embellished clip or tiara.
A great option for curly-haired brides, this is a relaxed style with heaps of class and glamour and it looks incredible with a high-necked wedding dress. Make like my bride and add a feminine twist with a floral hair accessory.
Understated yet sexy, this Parisian-inspired style is really easy to create at home and will pull long, flowing locks up and off of your back – perfect if you have a beautiful collared wedding dress to show off.
The epitome of chic, the chignon is a favourite for brides throughout the year, but it really comes in to its own in the winter. It’s sophisticated and will look great in your pictures for years to come – just make sure you fix it in to place with plenty of hairspray.
Effortless and elegant, this is a winning wedding hairstyle for fuss-free brides. Experiment with the look of the bun and think about weaving cute clips through the hair or perhaps pulling a side-swept fringe forward to gently frame your face.
Once you’ve decided which bridal hairstyle is The One, it’s important to take care of your hair. Winter can be harsh on hair so it’s vital you love your locks from the inside out. Follow my fail-safe rules to ensure your hair is gorgeous and healthy come the big day…
It’s important to drink plenty of water (aim for 7 pints a day) to ensure your hair is strong and healthy. It’ll help your skin too – no-one wants a flaky scalp on their wedding day!
Don’t forget to eat healthily. Many brides are conscious of looking fabulous on their wedding day and some try to eat less, but for a beautiful glow and glossy locks it’s important to eat well and not starve yourself. Choose lean meat and eat as much veg and nuts as you can.
A helping hand
If you have thin hair that is prone to breaking consider taking supplements before your wedding. Calcium, zinc and cod liver oil are all great and will help hair growth and increase shine.
Condition, condition, condition!
In the lead to your wedding it’s even more important to condition after washing and to apply a hair mask once a week to really give locks a treat.
