Bridal Hairstyles Modern

Wedding Hair Trends | The ultimate wedding hair styles of 2018

Planning a wedding in 2018? Congratulations – we couldn’t be happier for you!

2018 is set to be a year of romantic, effortless luxe hair. A touch of elegance and sophistication paired with what makes you – you. For all you lovers and modern romantics, 2018 is your year. Get ready to see some of the classics – hairstyles, dresses, styling – transformed ever so slightly, into modern and fresh visions of glamour.

For hair, that means a return of braids and twists but styled in ways we have yet to see. Tousled, textured and perfectly imperfect messy hair is the perfect way to showcase balayage and ombre colouring techniques. We love the way the hairstyles below highlight and accentuate the colours and tones of modern hair.

Check out these 54 trend-setting hairstyles for some wedding inspiration. And we’ve included some helpful styling tips for all your favourite accessories.

1. Textured low updos

These modern updos are a fusion of braids and classic styles. Despite their intricacy, they don’t look overdone or overwhelming. They’re modern chic personified.

Bringing it all together

As these gorgeous updos are detailed-rich, opt for a delicate, yet equally detailed wedding comb or bridal hair pins to truly set your look off.

For a glamorous look, we love to pair textured updos with a backwards facing headpiece such as our MAYBELLE hair pin, JASMINE headpiece or MARQUISE comb.

If you’re looking for a veil, we certainly suggest positioning a sheer, simple fingertip or chapel-length veil from the crown or just above the updo. These hairstyles will work perfectly with or without a blusher, and a veil with or without embellishments.

2. The relaxed wedding bun

The wedding bun is more chic than ever with wispy tendrils and a low set profile. The chignon in 2018 is luxurious yet relaxed, and will take brides from garden soirees to formal gatherings.

Whether you have long or short hair, there’s a wedding bun for you. Your hairstylist can always add extensions to your hair if you’d prefer a fuller look.

Bringing it all together

This classic look is all about keeping things chic and sophisticated. We love to style this look with backwards facing headpieces such as our FONTAINE headpiece, JASMINE hair comb, VERSE comb and MARION headpiece.

For a simpler feel, pair this hairstyle with something small and delicate tucked into the side, such as the BRIAR-ROSE hair pin set.

3. The chic ponytail

2018 will see many brides wearing chic ponytails down the aisle. We’ll be seeing glamorous high set wavy ones positioned at the crown to low set ponies tied at the nape of the neck.

For a more polished look, plump up your pony and wrap a strand of hair to cover the elastic. Finish with a pony tail wrap, cuff or velvet ribbon.
