We all know that wedding hairstyles change a lot over the years (just look at some from the 70, 80s, and 90s!), so as we enter 2020, it should come as no shock that we’re seeing some more ‘dos enter the fray. There’s loads of variety and something for everyone to look their best on their wedding day, regardless of taste, hair length, or even budget.
Soft and Tousled waves
Brides spend enough time getting ready for their big day, so why not have a hairstyle that’s not so complicated and rather inspired by the just-got-out-of-bed look. Going for effortless waves means that you end up with a beautifully tousled, soft hairstyle that looks great in pictures and doesn’t look like it took you 5 hours to complete! It’s best to let the curls set during the morning, but go for extensions if your hair doesn’t curl so easily or needs a bit of length to complete the style.
We’re not talking about that quick ponytail you throw your hair into while you’re exercising or cleaning the house, but a professional, gorgeous ponytail that perfectly mixes style and functionality. Stars like Ariana Grande have been wearing sleek, modern ponytails and have made it more than acceptable to wear this on your wedding day. Whether you go for a high option or one worn low near the base of your neck, new-age ponytails are easy to style and hold all day. Pair the ponytail with a ribbon or flower, or even add extensions if you want a long, flowing style for your special day.
While some might think a simple bun is, well, too simple for a wedding day, you’ll find that even celebs and fashionistas turn to the classic and chic bun style for their nuptials. A bun is a clean look that minimizes volume and instead leaves more than enough room for the accessories, makeup, and dress to get the spotlight. It’s still necessary to use smoothing products in order to keep the hair looking sleek and tidy. Hairspray might not work as well, as it provides more of a hard finish. A stylish bun can make a big impact when done right.
A classic look that is making a big comeback is bridal braids. Whether you go for fishtail, French, or the good old 3-strand braid, this option allows you to inject a bit of your own personality and style into a well-known hairdo. Similar to a bun, braids keep your hair neat and tidy throughout the day, and you won’t have to worry about wind or flyaways ruining your hair when it comes time to take some pictures! Try some different styles of braids and find out which one you’d prefer when you end up picking your wedding dress and choosing your makeup and accessories.
After you’ve finished deciding on your hairstyle, it’s a good idea to look at wedding planning trends for 2020, as there’s a lot to be excited about, including sustainable weddings, micro weddings, new lighting and seating concepts, and even new snacks and drinks to consider.
