Welcome to bridal season – with warmer weather on the horizon, it’s peak ceremony time.

While everyone focuses on the dress, a hairstyle completes a look – and there are plenty of ways to go on the big day.

From smart up-dos to half-up-half-down and long flowly looks, the options are vast.

Hairdresser brand Headmasters has put a guide together for bridal season, showing a number of different styles you can go for, along with accessories you might include.

Let this inspire your chosen look – whether you’re the bride or a bridesmaid.


Tips for getting the right do

Clare Hansford, creative ambassador at Headmasters, recommends the following:

  1. Have a consultation and a trial to check you’re happy with how everything looks and feels before the big day.
  2. In the months before the big day, have minimal trims to keep the ends healthy.
  3. Show your stylist a picture of your dress as the neckline can help inform the style you go for.
  4. Pack a travel kit with you containing sized travel products like hairspray and bobby pins for touch ups on the day.

Timeless twist

This classic look can suit a dress with a high neckline, so your hair doesn’t cover it.

It’s also great for destination weddings when temperatures will be higher.

Whimsical waves

A full, volumised look that can be made more ‘bohemian’ with the addition of a flower headband and accessories.

Romantic ponytail

Attention to detail (Picture: Headmasters)

If your dress has a low back, this style can work will to draw attention to that.

Add in a cuff at the top of the ponytail for extra interest and detailing.

Modern up-down

One for those who want it both ways (Picture: Headmasters)

This suits both those with thick hair and those who want to create the illusion of having fuller hair.

It takes the weight of your face so you don’t have to keep touching it, while still allowing it to look long.

Show pony

This is ideal for those who want their hair off their face while still having some drama and volume.

It’s also great for drawing attention to a neckline or jewellery.

Hollywood glamor

Full glam, this one will suit those who feel best with their hair being the star of the show.

Add in a clip to take some weight off your face, or let it hang down.
