The coolest hair styles for brides now

Along with some incredible fashion moments, the 2021 summer wedding season delivered some exceptional celebrity hair inspirations. For her May nuptials, Ariana Grande rocked an ultra-sleek version of her signature ponytail, which she accessorized with a bow bubble veil. In July, Gwen Stefani brought back the classic updo with a perfectly styled updo created by her longtime stylist Danilo.

While these famous brides have very different hair vibes, they did share one thing (apart from Vera Wang’s dresses): Their chosen hair styles were totally brand-specific for them. This is something every bride should aspire to for her wedding hair – you should look and feel like you on the big day.

When it comes to wedding hair, there are many factors that come into play that will dictate your look: your dress, your personality, your hair texture, and your style preferences. We spoke with Kevin Hughes, Artistic Director of Moroccanoil, about the wedding hairstyles modern brides wear, why you need a hairstylist as a confidant to guide your wedding hairstyle journey and his thoughts. on Wedding Hair Accessories: I don’t want them to be the star of the show, just a backup dancer! “

What are the best current wedding hair styles?

“One of the most popular looks is a very bohemian, loose bun with a lot of texture and movement. Kelly Clarkson was a perfect example of this style on her wedding day. Also, I love a low, sleek bun, it’s so chic and really a timeless style. It takes confidence to wear this style with the hair pulled all the way back from the face, it is a strong and beautiful look. Glamorous waves like the ones Kate Upton wore on the day from her wedding are large and can be worn with one side of the hair pulled back, or part of the hair in the center and tucked behind one or both ears. If you have naturally curly hair, I prefer wearing a more stylish version of your everyday look – show off those gorgeous curls I loved Samira Wiley’s wedding hair.

Why is it so important to have a relationship with a stylist before your wedding day?

“This is not the day when you want surprises with your hair and you want to feel confident. You need to know that your stylist will execute your wedding hair vision and style it according to your expectations. Plus, your wedding is a day you want to spend with the special people in your life that you love, including your beauty team.If this is your first time meeting your stylist on your wedding day, it adds a ton of anxiety and pressure to you and the stylist.

Are hair testing still relevant and why is it a good idea?

“You want to make sure the style is exactly how you imagine yourself on your wedding day. For example, so many women add extensions before their wedding, and if it’s something you want, it needs to be done well in advance. It is only when the extensions are in place that you can even to consider wedding hair styles. A tryout is also essential because now is the time for you and your stylist to collaborate on your vision and play around with a few different looks before deciding on the last one. You won’t have time to do it during the day.

From veils to barrettes and headbands, wedding hair accessories are an important thing for brides – what’s the best way to wear them?

“When it comes to accessories, I think less is more. You don’t want a prop to be the star of the show, just a backup dancer. It is essential to ensure that they are properly secured. We stylists have a secret trick to keeping them secure: an anchor braid. This is a little hidden braid that we incorporate into wedding hairstyles to secure all types of hair accessories. The placement of your chosen accessory is also very important. It should accentuate your wedding hairstyle and make sense. For example, if you pull one side of your hair back, it makes sense to put an accessory there, or if both front parts are pulled back, it would make sense to place an accessory where the two sections meet in the back.

Healthy wedding hair is the best wedding hair. What special treatments do you recommend before the wedding day?

“A wedding hair care regimen should start six months after the day if you have time. It is not difficult to implement or adopt. Start with a great shampoo and condition that will repair and hydrate along with weekly hydrating masks – I love Moroccanoil Light Hydrating or Intense Hydrating Masks. On the same day, a shiny product is essential: you want your hair to look shiny in the photos. I also like to finish with a hair scent, it adds a little something extra special to your day.
