Bridal braids

For brides who want something special, yet fuss free, braids are the way to go. Whether you go for a classic French braid, a milkmaid braid or a fishtail, there are tons of ways to incorporate a pretty plait into your bridal hair.

Hair down and natural

Having you hair down is becoming an increasingly popular trend amongst brides. Many women are opting for hair down looks as it feel more natural compared to having an extravagant updo. Hair down looks can either be silky straight, beachy, or thick and luxurious, all dependent on your hair type. Cascading soft waves work great with low backless dresses, while tousled hair works for more informal weddings.
