Wedding season is here, which means brides-to-be and their entourages have alreay started pouring into the salons for updos and wedding day styles. Along with bridal hairstyles, hair accessories continue to play a part in creating the look.
Whether your bridal client is opting for a laid-back and Pinterest-style wedding or a more glamorous affair, here are some of the bridal hair accessories trends you can expect for the summer nuptial season and how to help your client choose her look.
For the more glamorous, princess bride-to-be, a bit of bling in the form of hairpieces are where the look is going to rest—perhaps the hairpiece is even the bride’s “something old”. Louis Hechter, artistic director for the L’Oreal Professionnel bridal collection, showcased side-swept hair, fastened with a gorgeous broach-like piece, which created an elegant and sophisticated look.
Floral accessories—whether flower crowns, small buds adorning an updo or just a solo floral piece nestled into the style—are also big when it comes to bridal hair accessories, especially for outdoor affairs. Smaller, daintier buds played a role in creating the simple and sweet look created by Mexico-based stylist Pupy’s look featured in the Revlon Professional “Yes, I Do” collection.
Headbands range from having a relaxed boho feel to a more elegant finish. Depending on the kind and the amount of sparkle, work with your bride to see what kind of affair she’s having and what hairstyle might work best. Loose waves offer a boho look; while an updo or more defined curls give a classic look, like stylist Lucie Doughty did in this Breakfast at Tiffany’s-inspired style.
