Tamed Tresses

Hunting for a hot hairstyle for your special day? Whether your dress is boldly bejewelled or sleek and simple, we’ve got the ‘do’ for you.



Your hair is your canvas – so why not decorate it? In 2019, we’re seeing statement hairstyles featuring bejewelled pins, barrettes, headbands and even tiaras and halos. A well-placed headpiece accentuates any simple hairdo – think sleek, straight locks or beachy waves held back by a pair of dainty barrettes or pins adorned with sparkles. A headband studded with pearls or a glittering tiara attached to a cascading veil makes for a look fit for a queen, as does a hair chain scattered with crystals.

The 2019 bridal year is welcoming nature-inspired crowns and hairpieces with open arms, from oversized floral headpieces to delicate leaves nestled into curls. Bridal catwalks are in full bloom, with recent shows from Rodarte, Alejandro Resta and Reem Acra bringing back faithful flower crowns in both delicate and bold silhouettes. Bridal hairstyles are also getting a whimsical touch of green, with delicate leafy hair accessories and horticultural halos proving popular too. Add a wild pop of colour to a traditional white ensemble or go for a more natural vibe by weaving vines into any classic updo.

Buns – they’re practical, versatile and above all, sexy and sophisticated. For a smooth and sleek bun that won’t unravel when you’re dancing the night away, we recommend using products that smooth strands and hold them in place. For a more romantic, carefree look, consider an undone chignon with trailing tendrils that frame your face – a perfectly chic ‘do’ that flawlessly complements any sleeveless gown. Elevate either of these looks with a minimalist wedding veil on a small comb and a pair of teardrop earrings – voilà!

Suitable for both the aisle and the after-party, a pretty ponytail might be your saving grace! Take your pick: will it be a polished pony high on your head or one with texture and volume that sits at the nape of your neck? Whatever your preference, 2019 sees countless variations – side swept, swept back, inverted… the list goes on. Too plain? A jewel-encrusted pin, a pearlescent headband or a pair of bedazzled barrettes is bound to dress it up.

Bridal braids are reigning supreme in the world of weddings, as spotted behind the scenes at Berta, Cymbeline and Suzanne Neville – romantic, classic, relaxed or bohemian, there’s a braid for every bride. Incorporating braided details into an updo is subtle way to add texture and detail, or if you’re feeling edgy, dramatic double braids might just be the answer. A braided crown is simply divine, especially when decorated with small flowers.
