Summer Bridal Hairstyles 2016
I Woke Up This Gorgeous
Looking ‘made up’ isn’t for everyone – it’s becoming more and more commonplace for brides to want to have a more relaxed, boho feel to their finished hair and makeup look, with a tousled ‘I woke up this gorgeous’ finish, and I have to say, it does look fabulous!
Summer bridal hairstyles, and makeup too, often takes on a much more natural look (I guess the warm weather brings out the free-spirit in us girls!). This goes perfectly with lighter dresses, particularly in a more informal venue such as a beach, barn or festival wedding.
I recently created this beautiful, loose curl hairstyle with unraveling braid and vintage/boho accessories by Gillian Million for a photoshoot, showcasing some of the most popular summer bridal hairstyles.
This may look totally effortless and like it might all slip out of place at any moment to you, but I have put together this style in such a way that the incredibly discreet backcombing and securing techniques will hold this hairstyle in place as you dance away into the night!
Fancy trying something like this for your big day? Get in touch to arrange a trial with me!
The High Bun is a surprisingly versatile style, and the ideal pick of the summer bridal hairstyles for those of you jetting off somewhere hot or hoping for a scorcher here in the UK. Keeping your hair up, off your neck and out of your face and go a long way in keeping you comfortable, particularly when the nerves start kicking in!
When looking at summer bridal hairstyles, there are many factors you must consider – Will it go with your dress? Will it fit in with your theme and/or venue? Will you feel happy and comfortable as well as gorgeous?
If you think the high bun is for you, you’ll be pleased to hear that this works well for almost all hair types – you will need long hair for it though, or consider using extensions for the perfect size and volume.
Will this style work for you?
- Keep your cool! A great hairstyle for hot weather.
- Thick, heavy hair? This style works perfectly for you.
- Don’t quite have the length? Try American Dream hair extensions!
Perfectly polished but not ‘done’, it’s been a popular style for years and it still looks just as wonderful now as it did when it first appeared on the seen – the tousled up-do is a definitely one to try for bride to be who want to look romantic, ethereal and totally chilled all at once!
For this style, I set the hair in rollers for lovely root boost, volume and gentle curls, before backcombing a little underneath for added height to fix in the elegant hair vine and pinning into a faux plait at the back, with lots of weaving and overlapping to make this style look really intricate and beautiful.
My bride here wore a lovely vintage inspired dress, but this is one of those summer bridal hairstyles that looks great match with a number of themes.
I particularly like this look with a boho or low back gown to help show off that gorgeous detail.
