This year is all about vintage inspired weddings and bridal hair is no exception. Taking inspiration from the past, hairstylists are creating vintage yet modern styles to fit every hair type and length. If you want a vintage wedding or just love the looks of the past, you should try a vintage hairstyle. My tip is to make sure that your makeup fits whatever era you choose. Here are some of our favorite vintage hair looks!
The 1920’s is another huge trend in weddings (think Great Gatsby) and hair from the 1920’s and 30s is sleek and sultry. For long hair try sleek curls and add a fascinator for the perfect finish!
Another trend in wedding themes is retro weddings from the 50’s and 60’s. These styles are fun and playful. Add a beautiful birdcage veil or flower to complete the look!
An easy casual way to wear your hair is in a ponytail. This year the ponytail has went from casual to stunning!
I love the look of wearing a casual updo with a fancy wedding dress. With a simple updo the focus is on your face and not your hair. Another great thing about a classic ponytail is that is easy to do yourself and can save you money by not hiring a professional hairstylist. This look is also a nice classic look for bridesmaids.
For a natural organic look try waving your hair and putting it in a ponytail! Make sure to tie your hair around the ponytail holder for a more finished look!
My favorite ponytail is worn off to the side with massive curls!
If you don’t have long hair, get some extensions to make a fuller ponytail!
If you are want flowers in your hair for your wedding, consider wearing them as a floral head crown! Although this trend is not for every bride, it is the perfect look for a bride wanting an ultra romantic and ethereal appearance. I especially love this look for an outside garden wedding. This trend began on the runways and has caught on in Hollywood and now in the wedding industry.
Floral head crowns can be delicate and made with small flowers and greenery.
Or for a bold look use larger flowers and a larger quantity of flowers. You can even add some feathers or jewelry to make it even more unique.
Ask your florist to use some of the same flowers that are in your bouquet or the same color flowers to ensure everything matches perfectly.
Most brides will wear their hair down with soft waves or in a side braid as the perfect compliment to the floral crown.
If you like this look but unsure about wearing a floral crown, consider having the bridesmaids wear them in their hair.
