2018 Wedding Hair Trends
When it comes to hair trends, from bright splashes of colour to the most natural of waves, 2018 has seen it all. However, in bridal hair, there have been some clear winners for stylish brides who want to look their best on their big day. Here, we take a look at some of the biggest trends in wedding hair this year and predict what is to come for wedding hair trends in 2019.
Opt for Long and Natural
Where once the most intricate up-dos were the favoured choice for a formal wedding, hair down and long with flowing, natural waves and curls was seen much more often during 2018. The addition of floral hair accessories gives this look an ethereal edge.
Keeping the natural vibes flowing, up-dos were messier than ever, created using soft curls and pinned ad hoc, rather than with any specific or noticeable structure. The addition of an integrated plait was popular this year too.
Swept Back Bun
High buns with extra padding for a full, super-thick effect were popular for brides in 2018. Sweeping back any excess hairs, this look was particularly refined and sleek.
Ever a chic, full-of-class look, sleek ponytails were seen in mass on the bridal scene this year. Either centre or side partings pair with this style perfectly and often with a delicate, yet statement crystal headpiece.
Loosely Plaited Up-do
Where plaits and braids might have once seemed juvenile, the bridal season this year proved that grown-up plaits are back. Textured, tussled and intricately spun, plait up-dos were the perfect addition to a garden wedding look.
Slick Centre Parting
For those brides who weren’t into the messy trends, a slick and smooth centre parting was a popular choice for wedding day hair. With hair shiny and polished, it was either smoothed behind the ears and left down and long or slicked into a ponytail and topped with the perfect veil for the ultimate in chic bridal.
For hair-down looks with a little extra twist, randomly dotted plaits were added to bridal looks to up the bohemian bridal vibes. This worked best on longer hair with lots of texture and loose waves or curls.
Super Low Bun or Ponytail
A chic style that many chose for their bridal look was either a super-low bun or ponytail, aided by lots of hair product and finished with effortless but vital shine spray for a refined finish.
