2015 Bridal Hairstyle Trends
Posted by hlknapke at January 17th, 2015
1) The sleek updo. It seems like the more hair a woman has, the more tightly-styled she wants it on her wedding day. As one who doesn’t have natural curl, I’ve never really understood how these women could want to have their hair blown out straight, straightened with an iron, and then sculpted into the tightest possible (and yet elaborate) bun or updo. The last couple of years, numerous braids all wound together in different elegant combinations have been super popular. The most important thing to these girls seems to be knowing that once it’s up and gorgeous, that hair won’t move!
2) Bigger is better. Often, bridal hair reflects the origin of the bride. Women from Texas, and the south in general, wear their hair bigger and bolder than brides from anywhere else. I had one girl who wore her hair big and curly for her ceremony, with orchids tucked behind her ear. As the night wore on, her stylist kept teasing it higher and wider and adding more and more blossoms all over the place. By the end of the night, you couldn’t tell if the bride was coming or going from all directions.
3) Half up, half down is easily the most popular, although it’s done in a variety of ways. It can be simple, or elaborate with braining and weaving, or it can include elaborate pins and clips that add bling and sparkle. Some prefer to wear curls sausage style on the bottom under the veil and then brush them out a bit and restyle after the veil comes off. Others go for a long, straight look in back but something flashy and elaborate in the updo on top.
