If you think mermaid waves are great for beach ceremonies but not so suitable for glamorous city weddings, you are wrong. Poppy Delevingne rocked this wedding hairstyle, and it looked fabulous with that flamboyant Chanel gown. Her blond hair was parted on the side and gently curled to form loose waves, while the make-up was simple and modern with dark smoky eyes, dramatic lashes and nude lips. A very similar wedding hair style was spotted at the Reem Acra show as the designer paired relaxed down-dos with extravagant sexy gowns.
A top knot is a classical wedding hairstyle, which looks lovely on both modern and traditional brides. Nicole Richie had her hair tied in a ballerina bun to match her fabulous Marchesa wedding gown that featured a puffy tulle skirt. While the elegant top knot she wore looks very neat and traditional, brides who want to add a contemporary twist to this hairstyle can make it a little bit messy, organic and textured as seen at the Bridal Fashion Week shows.
A braided crown is the perfect wedding hairstyle for bohemian brides, while British reality star Millie Mackintosh took this trend to another level by pairing it with a very elegant lace dress. Her braids looked stunning with delicate white blossoms pinned in just above the veil. If you love this look, you might also like a similar hair-do from the Alice + Olivia autumn/winter RTW show. While Millie opted for a natural make-up style, this catwalk look combined a braided crown with glossy red lip.
Model, Coco Rocha nailed the 1920s glamour style on her big day with elegant waves incorporated in her sleek up-do. This wedding hairstyle was the perfect match for her mermaid dress designed by Zac Posen, and accessories, such as the lace parasol, added a vintage flair to the overall look. Zac Posen is renowned for his flamboyant evening dresses and wedding gowns, much loved by celebrity brides, and for his spring summer 2012 collection he opted for the flapper style hair and make-up which can be your inspiration too.
Olivia Palermo was definitely one of the most stylish celebrity brides last year, and she has chosen a very simple wedding hairstyle to complement her Carolina Herrera outfit. Her ponytail was effortless and very chic, and if you want to sport a similar style, we suggest that you add a fun twist to it. With slim plaits on both sides, your ponytail will look even more dapper! We spotted this look at Marchesa spring/summer 2013 show.
Style icon Jane Birkin accessorised her wedding hair with fresh colourful blooms to complement her simple 1960s style crochet frock. Her wedding day look is the perfect inspiration for modern bohemian brides who want something fabulous, but effortless, for a beach or countryside ceremony. To recreate this look, use small flowers and entwine them together to make a gorgeous headpiece for your down-do. You can also use the Valentino spring/summer 2015 couture show as a source of ideas if you prefer a subtler, braided style with an antique touch.
If you want a wedding hairstyle that epitomises timeless elegance, look no further than royal celebrity brides. Princess Charlene of Monaco had a neat chignon accessorised with a bejewelled headpiece and a very thin tulle veil. A little bit of bling in your hair is pure classic, so don’t be shy to add this to your wedding day look. You can also style your neat chignon with a crystal-studded hair band as seen at the Monique Lhuillier spring/summer 2015 show.
