1 Low-slung bun

This b-e-a-u-tiful undone bun is top of our bridal hair lust list.

Keep the front sections of your hair loose for a soft, flattering finish.

2 Mermaid waves

Go boho-girl for the big day with mermaid-esque waves. Prep damp strands with a salt spray to enhance the natural texture of your hair, then use a diffuser and scrunch the lengths to add texture whilst blow-drying. If your locks are naturally straight, be sure to hit up our guide to the best curling tongs here.

3 Curls are queen

Teeny-tiny curls whipped up into a playful updo, strikes the ultimate balance between effortless and elegant.

4 Rose-braided buns

Who needs real flowers when you can wear them in braid form? Simply plait, twist and pin. Done and dusted.

5 Embellished ponytail

A delicate, jewel-encrusted hair pin is the perfect topper for a low-key ponytail. Keep strands looking polished by running a little of Bumble & Bumble’s Semisumo Pomade, £23, through the lengths, and then securing your hair just above the nape of the neck in a tight ponytail.
