How to Find the Perfect Bridal Hairstyle

When you’re deciding on your wedding style, you’re probably going to begin by finding your dream dress and theme for your dream wedding day. When you’re ready to move on to the finer details, your bridal hairstyle will no doubt be near the top of your list of considerations and an expert bridal hairstylist will be able to help you make those big decisions.

Here are some timeless hairstyles to inspire you, all of which can be customised to perfectly compliment your dress, theme, and colour scheme.

Hair up or hair down?

For a classic look, an elegant up-do, or neat bun, is a timeless option to create a sophisticated look for your special day. There are so many options for elegant up-dos while bringing in some personality to create the ideal style for your special day.

However, more relaxed bespoke styles featuring glamourous curls right through to soft glam looks are becoming increasingly popular as more brides look to find a bridal hairstyle that reflects their own personality. Wearing your hair down can create a timeless natural look that allows you to feel confident and beautiful as you step into the spotlight. Whether you choose a classic hair-up style, or a natural relaxed style with your hair down it’s important to ensure you find the hairstyle that allows you to feel like the best version of yourself on your special day.

Finding your style

Neat buns and intricate up-dos give a traditional, classic look while styling your hair loose gives a more modern relaxed look, sometimes neither feels quite right. Every bride is completely unique, and so is their bridal hairstyle.

Styles in between these two ends of the scale could be the right fit for you, giving plenty of options to find a touch of soft glam for your bridal style. Finding inspiration to help gain an idea of preferred looks is a really helpful start to the bridal hairstyling process, but when working with a expert bridal hairstylist like us, tailoring the experience to your individuality and unique personal style allows you to find the unique style perfectly reflecting you.

Enhancing your natural beauty

Depending on the length, thickness, and natural style of your hair some styles may naturally suit you better and be more suitable for your hair type. Likewise, some styles may enhance your natural beauty while others may detract, which is why working with an expert hair stylist can help you be sure you’re finding the right option for you. Balancing your style preferences, your personality and your natural beauty we can help you find the right fit for your unique bridal style as every bride will be unique.  I love working with our brides to find their perfect bridal style.


Your wedding day is the ideal time to showcase your personal style in all its beauty. While there is a vast range of accessories to choose from ranging from subtle elegance to glitz and glamour, it’s important that your accessories work well to enhance your look.  The right accessories can accentuate your bridal hairstyle and overall bridal style, while others may detract from your look. It’s important to consider carefully to find the accessory that works within your wedding style, adding to your bridal look rather than diminishing your elegant, professional bridal style.

From classic choices such as pearls or delicate studded silver to more modern styles that reflect your individuality and passions, the choices are endless, which is why professional input can help you make sure you make the right choice for your style. If you’re not sure whether a veil is right for you, check out our To Veil or Not to Veil blog post, discussing the pros and cons of choosing a veil for your wedding day.

Bridal Parties

When planning a wedding, bridal hairstyling is an important part of the decision-making process for the bride. However, for a cohesive and professional wedding look it’s important to also consider your bridal party.

Booking bridal party hairstyling for your wedding day will allow you and your bridal party to feel beautiful and confident on your wedding day, ensuring each individual has a professional look that reflects their individual personality and style.
