An Evening in Florence

This year is set to be a year of romantic, effortless luxe hair. A touch of elegance and sophistication paired with a hint of bohemian. Get ready to see some of the classics transformed ever so slightly into relaxed yet modern adaptations.

Love braids? Get excited because there’ll be a return of braids and twists in ways we have yet to see. Tousled, textured and perfectly imperfect messy hair is the perfect way to showcase balayage and ombre colouring techniques. We love the way the hairstyles below highlight and accentuate the colours and tones of modern hairstyles.

We’ve pulled together 54 stunning hairstyles we know you and your BFFs will love. And we’ve included some helpful styling tips for all your favourite accessories.

1. Textured low updos

These modern updos are a fusion of braids and classic styles. Despite their intricacy, they don’t look overdone or overwhelming. They’re modern chic personified.

Bringing it all together

As these gorgeous updos are detailed-rich, opt for a delicate, yet equally detailed wedding comb or bridal hair pins to truly set your look off.

For a glamorous look, we love to pair textured updos with a backwards facing headpiece such as our MAYBELLE hair pin, JASMINE headpiece or MARQUISE comb.

If you’re looking for a veil, we suggest positioning a sheer, simple fingertip or chapel-length veil from the crown or just above the updo. These hairstyles will work perfectly with or without a blusher, and a veil with or without embellishments.

2. The relaxed wedding bun

The wedding bun is more chic than ever with wispy tendrils and a low set profile. The chignon in 2018 is luxurious yet relaxed, and will take brides from garden soirees to formal gatherings.

Whether you have long or short hair, there’s a wedding bun for you. Your hairstylist can always add extensions to your hair if you’d prefer a fuller look.

Bringing it all together

This classic look is all about keeping things chic and sophisticated. We love to style this look with backwards facing headpieces such as our FONTAINE headpiece, JASMINE hair comb, VERSE comb and MARION headpiece.

For a simpler feel, pair this hairstyle with something small and delicate tucked into the side, such as the BRIAR-ROSE hair pin set.

3. The chic ponytail

This year we will see many brides wearing chic ponytails down the aisle. We’ll be seeing glamorous high set wavy ones positioned at the crown to low set ponies tied at the nape of the neck.

For a more polished look, plump up your pony and wrap a strand of hair to cover the elastic. Finish with a pony tail wrap, cuff or velvet ribbon.

4. The new half updo

Part half updo, part side-swept goddess, the new half updo is pure perfection. The braids and twists add that wow-factor, while the loose, wavy locks cascading down your back bring a softness and glamour.

For symmetry lovers, a romantic updo with fishtail detail is just as exquisite.

Bringing it all together

For those wanting to make a statement, you really can’t go past some scattered hair pins. We love an understated set like our BRIAR-ROSE hair pins.

And for you wedding veil lovers, this hairstyle would look gorgeous with a simple, chapel length veil like our AUDREY positioned either at the crown to create height or where your braid/twist ends in the middle. But why not take it up a notch, and look at embellished veil number such as our crystal trimmed chapel veil, ETOILE or pearl-detailed LOREN.

5. The half updo knot

Looking for something a little different, modern, yet still chic? May we introduce you to the half updo knot. For boho lovers, mess it up. Or for a more glam look, style it with loose waves and a smooth finish.

Bringing it all together

Depending on the thickness and volume of your hair, you could either add details to the side of your knot or directly to the knot itself. We love the idea of some delicate hair pin positioned into the bun to really create a beautiful focal point like our TEAROSE or scattered hair pins.

Is your heart set on wearing a veil? Opt for one on a smaller comb, like our AUDREYMARISA or KARELL. But if you’ve fallen in love with any of our veils, we can customise them with smaller combs, to suit you hairstyle.

Position your wedding comb directly above your updo, if the knot volume isn’t too grand; or just underneath to create a beautiful waterfall-like image. Or add some shimmer to your look with our ETOILE crystal veil.
