Spring is officially here and we’re absolutely buzzing with all things wedding season!

Whether you’re newly engaged or on the final countdown before your big day, your wedding hairstyle is a key decision that you will have probably already spent a lot of time of thinking about.

We know you’ve got a million things on your plate (venue hunting, dress dilemmas, the guest list!), so let’s take one thing off your mind: your wedding day hairstyle!

Whether you’re a long-haired princess or rocking a chic bob, there’s a perfect style out there waiting to make you shine on your special day. Here at Barrie Stephen Hair, we’ve got the lowdown on the hottest wedding hair trends for 2024, all perfect for our Leicestershire brides:

The Effortlessly Elegant Updo:
This timeless classic will never go out of style. Think sleek buns with a modern twist, like a braided detail at the nape of the neck, or a low chignon adorned with delicate pearls. It’s chic, sophisticated, and perfect for showing off that stunning neckline.

Romantic Half-Up Half-Down:
Calling all boho brides! This relaxed style is perfect for adding a touch of whimsy to your look. Think loose waves cascading down, intertwined with delicate braids or adorned with fresh flowers for a touch of fairytale magic.

Old Hollywood Glamour:
Channel your inner 20s icon with a head full of Hollywood waves. Soft, bouncy curls never go out of style, and they’re especially flattering for most face shapes. Add a touch of vintage glamour with a sparkly hair clip or a dramatic side parting. Audrey Hepburn, eat your heart out!

The Show-Stopping Ponytail:
Don’t underestimate the power of a good ponytail! This versatile style can be dressed up or down depending on your vibe. A high, sleek ponytail with a statement braid is perfect for a modern bride, while a low, loose ponytail with textured waves adds a touch of boho chic.

Accessorise, Accessorise, Accessorise!
No matter what style you choose, the right accessories can take your wedding hair to the next level. Think sparkly headbands, delicate floral crowns (perfect for a summer wedding!), or even statement hair clips for a touch of vintage glam.

Top Tip #1: Don’t forget the trial!
Here at Barrie Stephen Hair, we recommend booking a wedding hair trial well in advance of your big day. This is your chance to experiment with different styles, see what works best with your dress and veil, and make sure you feel completely confident and radiant on your special day.

Top Tip #2: Experiment and practise!
It’s really important to feel comfortable and confident on your wedding day. If your heart is lusting after a sleek ponytail but you normally wear your hair down, make sure you get used to the feeling of having your hair swept up before the big day by popping your hair in a bun or a ponytail as often as possible. If you find yourself feeling a little unsure and self-conscious while wearing those hairstyles, it might be best to opt for a different style that will help you feel as incredible as you look on the big day.

We hope this guide has given you some inspiration for your wedding day hairstyle. Remember, the most important thing is to choose a style that makes you feel beautiful and confident. After all, it’s your day to shine!

Now, get out there, say “yes to the hair do,” and don’t forget to book your wedding hair trial with us at Barrie Stephen Hair! We can’t wait to make your hair dreams a reality.
