How Do I Choose a Wedding Hairstyle?

It is essential that your bridal hairstyle compliments your personal style, wedding dress and any wedding themes. If you're wearing a relaxed, summery wedding dress then a more bohemian hairstyle such as loose waves could work for you. If your wedding is more formal, a structured, smoother hairstyle such as chignon would compliment your wedding dress and theme. 

Should I Wear My Hair Up At My Wedding?

There are no rules to wearing your hair up or down at your wedding, it depends on your bridal gown and your personal preference. If you're looking for a low maintenance bridal hairstyle that will take you from day to night, ask your Stephen Young stylist for a bridal upstyle.

Loose wedding hairstyles such as boho waves can look beautiful, but in warm summer weather waves can lose their shape, so it is important to factor in the weather into your hairstyle plans. Our wedding hair experts can find a stylish half up/half down wedding hairstyle to suit you. 

Braided Bridal Hairstyles

Bridal hairstyles with plaits, braids or twists are a popular hairstyle amongst brides and bridesmaids. Depending on your outfit, you may consider having a high ballerina bun, an elegant chignon, a French braid or a romantic curly updo with floral hair accessories. Chunky braids or fishtail plaits are also a popular and low maintenance hairstyle for younger flower girls.

Curly Bridal Hairstyles 

Soft wavy and curly bridal hairstyles remain a charming and popular look with brides, whether left loose or in an upstyle. You may wish to add hair accessories or a veil to your hairstyle, or opt for a half up half down wavy style. When it comes to your bridal party, consider a simple wavy hairstyle with gentle curls cascading down their backs or swept over to one side.


Should I Wear A Tiara or Veil For My Wedding?

Wearing a tiara or a veil is a personal choice for a bride, and do not always suit the choice of dress or wedding theme. If you're unsure about wearing a tiara or veil, why not try a jewelled comb with a shorter veil piece in your bridal hairstyle? 

Upstyles for Brides and Bridesmaids

Upstyles continue to be the first choice for many brides. Classic upstyles such as french twists, chignons, and bridal buns for brides & bridesmaids are the most popular, although the trend for 2021 is for more relaxed, romantic bridal upstyles with gentle tendrils framing the face.
