Based on current trends, modern brides are looking at runways and celebrity influence when it comes to picking a hairstyle for their wedding day. When it comes to picking a look, some brides know exactly what they want while others struggle. To meet the demands, stylists are borrowing inspiration from the red carpet and below we’re detailing some of the top wedding style trends of the season created by Wella Professionals Celebrity Stylist Mara Roszak.

Braided Embellishments

Ideal for: the modern & playful bride.

While upstyles can work for a range of different necklines, we love pairing a high ponytail with braided details with a high neckline. This draws the eye up and allows the wearer to show off both the details of her dress as well as her hair.  



Juno’s style is ideal for the bride that is looking for volume and softness but wants something more modern, fun and out-of-the-box. Roszak suggests a full braided fishtail updo for a dress that has some texture and playfulness. This way the romantic softness of the hairstyle will juxtapose the dress with a modern edge. 



Modern brides have also been leaning toward paired-back dresses with the hairstyle to match. Choosing a style similar to Zoe’s look plays into that modernism. It’s perfect for a bride looking for a slicked back, or middle-parted style that pairs well with a sleek silhouette dress or something with a low back.

According to Roszak, Wella Professionals EIMI Ocean Spritz Salt Hairspray was the hero product to create this look. “The spray just adds the perfect amount of additional texture to the base before braiding,” she adds.



The Party Pony

Ideal for: the retro bride.

The beautiful thing about Margaret’s look is its ability to be tailored to any client. This look is very universal and makes a beautiful bridal hairstyle. With a nod to the 60s, this style works well with dresses that have a full skirt or are shorter in length. Soft and modern, this voluminous pony looks romantic during the ceremony and can also be really fun for dancing as the evening progresses. 

I always recommend a hair trial before the big day. With this style, you have options to play around with the front hairline. You can part it in the middle with a few pieces in the front softly falling or you can pull it all back and off the face. You can even create a combo of the two especially if you have layers by playing with some soft pieces around the ears pulled out,” says Roszak.

Glamorous Waves

Ideal for: the iconic bride.

Apart from the undulating waves, the health and color of the hair are paramount to creating this look. Getting ready for the big day, clients should examine their care routine and consider adding a Wella Professionals Color Fresh Mask to their routine to perfect the finish. This is exactly how Roszak got Cara’s look. The hair was prepped with Wella Professionals Color Fresh Mask in Golden Gloss before styling. This helped create that endless shine that most brides are also seeking on their wedding day. "Wella Professionals Color Fresh Masks are great to play with to enrich your natural color before your wedding without making any major changes. It’ll enhance your hair to make your color naturally pop on your big day. You could also consider adding a bit of extra hair, like a ponytail extension that matches perfectly, for extra volume,” adds Roszak.

For the ideal base Wella Professionals EIMI Extra Volume Mousse Strong Hold Volumizing Mousse was applied prior to blow-drying to achieve a soft hold and added volume.
