Wedding Hair & Beauty

I know brides-to-be are completely preoccupied with their wedding hair & beauty. At Style & the Bride, we endeavour to bring you the latest catwalk hair and beauty trends, and show how they can translate into the world of bridal. As well as wedding hair and make up tips from leading hairdressers and make-up artists, there is beautiful inspiration when it comes to wedding hair accessories and beauty products.

Just as you try on a few wedding dresses before making your decision, it is important to have a hair and make up trial to ensure you look exactly how you want to look on your big day. Don’t think you have to wear your hair up because that is what your best friend did. If you never wear your hair up, your wedding day is not the time to start. When you walk down the aisle, you want to look the best possible version of yourself, and not end up looking like somebody else!

Wedding hair & beauty has changed so much over the years, and nowadays, brides are very influenced by catwalk and celebrity beauty looks. If for example you like the make up worn by an A-list star at a star- studded event, there is no reason why you can’t emulate the look on your bridal day. If you have decided you would rather book a hairdresser and make-up artist for your wedding, remember that they get booked up very quickly.

To ensure there are no surprises on your big day, it is imperative that you have a hair and make-up trial in advance to ensure you are happy with the look that they will be doing for your wedding. Your hair and make-up trial is the time to experiment, not on the big day itself! In the hair & beauty section, we also cover grooming as we know it is just as important that grooms look as good as brides. Long gone are the days when grooms turned up to their wedding day without spending any time grooming themselves. Men quite rightly want to make sure they look and feel good on the biggest day of their life.
