What’s your bridal style? As women (and hairstylists) near and far begin dreaming up their “Big-Day” do’s, Ramona Krieger of Love2Braid is offering plenty of inspiration to choose from. Take a peek at some of the top bridal hairstyle trends of the season and the tutorials to get the look! Alongside a collection of blush-tone dresses and a few touches of braids, these classic looks can easily be tailored for the modern-day bride.
LOOK 1 - AINE
- Make a diagonal traditional ‘Grace Kelly roll’
- Make one big Dutch braid starting from the front of the head
- Place it loosely around the ‘Grace Kelly roll’ to give it an airy and romantic feeling.
LOOK 2 - VENUS
- Divide the hair into 2 sections : one on top of the head & one at the back of the head.
- Make 2 ponytails at the back of the head with the lower section of hair.
- Make 2 loose braids, using the 2 ponytails and create a bun which combine those 2 braids.
- Divide the hair you have left, on top of the head, into 2 parts with a clean middle section.
- Make small braids which you creatively fold over each other to give it a ‘crown look’
- I’ve placed some ‘fake pink elderberries’ in it to make it more romantic.
LOOK 3 - HATHOR
- Make a high ponytail and create a large bun.
- The bun is place diagonal which gives it another dimension.
- Also the bun should be really clean and tight, using good hairproducts is essential.
- Using a piece of hair jewelry it adds a really Bridal look.
LOOK 4 - CYPRUS
- We teased the hair on top a little bit and made a clean low ponytail
- Using good hair products are essential for this look
- Make a big braid with the ponytail and flip it over
- Unfortunally you don’t see the back of the hair with this look but it appears to be a bug braided lower bun if you follow te steps mentioned above.
LOOK 5 - CYPRUS With a Twist
- Divide the hair into 2 sections, we need one large part of the hair to make a ponytail and one front part to make a Dutch braid. The front section should be diagonally sectioned to create a classic look.
- Make a tight ponytail placed in the middle, at the back of the head.
- Make a bun by making another ponytail but don’t pull all the hair through. Use the side parts of that bun to place it under & above the ponytail and secure it well. This creates a large ‘roll’.
- Make a Dutch braid with the front part of the hair and place it creatively next to the ‘roll’.
- I’ve finished it off with a large fresh pink flower to make the Bridal look complete.
