The Best Bridal Hair Trends of 2018

The Best Bridal Hair Trends of 2018

If you’re in the midst of planning a wedding, look to this years’ spring bridal fashion week for hair inspiration. Gone are the days of intricate and overdone updos, bridal hair trends for 2018 are elegantly casual. Some of the most popular beauty looks on the spring bridal runway were inspired by the spring ready-to-wear collections, which featured trends like bows and braids.

Beach curls

What’s now a standard in most hair salons throughout the U.S., beach curls were (and have been) a huge hit on the bridal runways this year. Regardless of your wedding location – beach or traditional church wedding – you can’t go wrong with this look. To give strands a “lived in” look, mist a texture spray like Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray before curling.  

Sleek and slick

Brides looking for an edgier look will appreciate a sleek, slicked back hair ala models at Zuhair Murad. To replicate this look, keep hair straight and “wet down” crown of head with a fair amount of a gel like Oribe’s Rock Hard Gel. Not only will gel give you that slick vibe, it’ll keep the frizzies and stray hairs at bay all night long.

Low and loose

If you want to keep your look more traditional, but don’t want to look like your grandmother, then the low and loose chignon is for you. Keep the look more modern by parting hair in the center. Once parted, gather hair it into a low ponytail. Create a loop with your tail and wrap ends around the base of it. It’s ok if a few strands come loose – it just adds to the casual vibe of the look.

Ribbons and bows

As mentioned above, one of the biggest hair accessory trends of the 2018 spring runways was ribbons and bows. This trend made its way to bridal and well, ribbons and bows were everywhere on the spring bridal runway. Forgo the sparkly hair accessory for a simple single strand of velvet ribbon or satin grosgrain. Any color will do, but black was popular with several designers.

Layered braids

Two is always better than one, right? Braids times 2 is a fresh take on a classic and is an easy way to update what may be a somewhat standard look. Designers like Marchesa sent models down the runway with two Dutch braids (on each side) gathered into a low ponytail. Mist hair with a light hold hairspray.
