Top 10 Wedding Hairstyles by Ava Belle BridalSep 10

Ava Belle Luxury Hair and Makeup

When considering your desired bridal look, it’s important to think about the whole package and not just the dress.

However, once you’ve found ‘The One’ (the dress, that is), the next step is to begin thinking about which kind of hairstyle will suit you (and your dress) the best.

To kickstart this process, we asked the lovely Ava from Ava Belle Luxury Hair and Makeup to walk us through her top ten hairstyles. Let the inspiration begin!

Look 1: Braided Up-Style

Hair that is flattering and unfussy, this easy to wear style is great on location, cliff top photo moments and dancing till dawn.

Look 2. Retro

I love this modern take on a 60’s classic. It is so darling and feminine, fab for the fun bride ready to dance the night away.

Look 3: Smooth Waves

These smooth waves are a dreamy take on a classic 1940’s look. This style is feminine and soft, while the centre parting gives a fresh modern feel.

Look 4: Low Loose Up-Style

For the elegant or more formal wedding, this look is chic and timeless, with the addition of a few flowers adding a soft romantic touch.

Look 5: Flower Crown

Perfect for the Flower Child of the 70’s, this bridal look is fun, pretty and romantic. Brightening up a beach or garden wedding with a pop of colour.

Look 6: Relaxed Curls

Creating the perfect wave that looks styled but not overdone is an art in itself, striking a balance between polished and relaxed. Keeping it simple is a great compliment to an embellished dress.

Look 7: The Half & Half

Hair which is half up and half down is a great way to add a little structure and detail into your style.

Look 8: Side Swept

A nod to old Hollywood Glamour with a deep side parting, you can’t go wrong with this timeless red carpet classic.

Look 9: The Top Knot

High messy style with soft wispy flyaways!

Look 10: Boho Braids

Super sexy textured braids: Effortless and undone – “I just woke up like this!”
