Since rustic and retro weddings have become a popular choice, natural hairstyles and natural-looking makeup have become quite common among brides. Thousands of Pinterest boards have been dedicated to women who let their natural beauty shine through on their wedding day and inspiration is everywhere for the bride who wants to look fresh and divine.
Much of the appeal of the natural look comes from how easy and uncomplicated it is to pull off. Neutral tones and subtle makeup are all it takes to look radiant on your special day, and styling your hair is even easier. If you want to try out a natural hairstyle on your own wedding day, we have some pointers for taking that plain hair-down look to the next level:
You may be tempted to go completely natural and just wear your hair down. Beautiful, thick hair should by all means be shown off!
However, for a look that’s both elegant and laid-back, go for an updo instead. As the experts on Project Wedding note, many brides forget to factor the veil into their plans, and when they wear their hair down, the addition of the veil muddles up the look. Wearing an updo is by far the easiest way to ensure that your veil goes well with the rest of your wedding attire.
Channel a woodland goddess and take your hair to the next level by adding some small flowers into your hairdo. While white and off-white flowers will always be a classic, Simon Richards, Floral Product developer for M&S, suggest that you “trust your own judgment when it comes to colour. If you like a combination then it probably works. Two simple rules are to either combine tonal shades of one colour or choose vibrant clashes such as cerise, purple and yellow.”
Vintage bridal crowns came into fashion with retro and rural weddings, and they’re a great way to add a touch of elegance to your bridal hairstyle.
If you want to wear your hair down but still want a more rustic look, beautiful bronzed and copper bridal crowns can be a great help. Princess Bride Tiaras has a great guide on how to wear your bridal crowns and tiaras with your veils.
