Wedding season 2018 is in full drive! Trends for wedding day hair focus on soft romance and simple elegance that pairs perfectly with the summer season. Browse our favorite summer wedding hairstyles and get inspired for your big day.
Following on the boho and rustic trends, textured updos for 2018 weddings feature natural texture and loose shapes, borrowing a bit from the messy braid trend. To get this look, have your stylist create a loose updo with braided elements and make sure they leave tendrils to frame your face. Pair a textured updo with a flower crown for a finished look or wear it natural for a simple summer wedding.
It does not get any more casual than a low bun. While this style looks easy, the key for wedding day buns is to support the bun so it stays in place throughout the night. Make sure your stylist uses plenty of support even as she teases the bun into shape. A classy way to support low buns is with lace clips or combs, which add to the soft romantic effect.
Sometimes the simplest approach is best. If you love the look and feel of your hair, why not celebrate your natural style on your wedding day? To showcase natural hair, head to the salon before the big day. Treat yourself to a deep conditioning treatment so your hair is soft and nourished, or get your roots touched up if you highlight your hair. Come the wedding day, have your stylist gently comb the hair into place and style as you normally would or use wedding hair accessories.
Torn between letting your locks flow and wearing your hair up? Go half in with a textured half updo that weaves twists and braids through your hair. Fishtail braids are a perfect way to add interest and dimension to a partial updo. The key to making this look natural is to reduce contrast between the hair that’s up and down, so rather than stick-straight tresses, have your stylist work soft waves into your mane.
Stylists can get booked in advance of summer weddings, so use Vagaro to reserve your pre-wedding appointment well before the big day.
