5 Bridal Hairstyle Ideas

If you’re looking for bridal hair ideas, look no further. Using the red carpet for inspiration, we’ve rounded up 5 of the best hairstyles around for any bride-to-be. From formal up-dos to bohemian braids, we have a look for every type of wedding and every type of bride.

Bridal Inspiration

Bohemian Fishtail Braids

Chrissy Tiegen Fishtail Braid

Ever since we first spotted Chrissy Teigen’s fishtail braid at the Oscars, we’ve been in love with the look. We think this could be the perfect alternative to a flower crown; whimsical, bohemian and oh-so-pretty.

This loose and multi-layered braid is the ideal choice for a bride who wants something a little special but with a laid-back and natural feel. For an extra touch, we could see this looking utterly beautiful with a few little flowers woven in among the braids. Watch this space for a braid tutorial!

Get the look with: Redken Braid Aid Braid Defining Lotion. This styling lotion adds grip and texture to the hair for better hold and shape when you braid your hair.

Classic Hollywood Waves

Lady Gaga Hollywood Waves

You can never go wrong with a little bit of Hollywood glamour on your wedding day. Lady Gaga‘s perfect 50s inspired waves had us swooning as she walked down the red carpet.

A little bit retro, a little bit sassy and very glamorous, these classic waves would make the ideal look for any vintage-loving bride. Pair with a classic red lip for an amazing statement look on your big day.

Get the look with: Kérastase Styling Laque Noire. This hair spray will give you incredible hold and contains humidity fighting ingredients to keep your style flawless all day long.

Romantic Braided Bun

Olivia Wilde Braided Crown

Olivia Wilde always gives us hair envy with her beautiful locks but this elegant up-do is one we’ll be keeping in our inspiration folder for a long time.

The braided crown which transitions into a braided bun gives a romantic twist to a classic bun. Pretty and graceful, this hairstyle would look right at home with a lace dress in a beautiful ballroom. The dream!

Get the look with: SHOW Beauty Premiere Working Texture Spray. It adds texture and hold to give you those perfect fly-aways that soften and finish this look off.

Feminine Embellished Twists

Brie Larson Embellished twists

This beautiful half-up, half-down hairstyle that we spotted on Brie Larson is just perfect for a wedding day. Soft, feminine and pretty, this makes a statement without being fussy.

The simple twists away from the face highlight your features and with the added embellishments, this is an ideal bridal hairstyle.

Get the look with: Sachajuan Root Lift. With half-up, half-down styles, hair can look a little thin and the Root Lift adds that little bit of ‘oomph’.

Simple Sideswept Waves

Blake Lively Sideswept curls

If you’re the kind of gal who prefers to keep her hair down, then this look from Blake Lively is the one to try. It is your everyday look, perfectly elevated for your big day.

Simple, but far from basic, these glossy sideswept curls are one of our favourite simple yet high impact hairstyles and it makes a great alternative to the traditional up-do.

Get the look with: Matrix Biolage Sugarshine Illuminating Mist. To add impact and drama, this look needs extreme shine so spritz this over the hair for the ultimate glossy finish.

Make Up Specialist

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
