Whether you’re getting married, acting as a bridesmaid or simply the guest of honour at a wedding this year, we’ve got the perfect wedding hairstyles for you – from classic up-dos to Boho down-dos.
Picking an outfit for a wedding (be it a wedding dress, bridesmaid attire or simply a great wedding guest outfit) can be tough, but deciding on a hairstyle can often be even harder. You want to pick something on trend, but also want to make sure the look is timeless so that looking back on wedding photographs in the distant future does not make you cringe!
From tousled waves to chic up-dos, glorious hair accessories and cute bobs, we’ve picked out the best of the best in wedding hair…
We adore a simple tied back style for a wedding. Add a little texture to give it an edge.
A great way to jazz up a simple ‘down-do’ is to add in some small, pretty plaits. Perfect!
