Summer brides are carefree and set trends with their effortless hair styles. The hair they wear gives you a glimpse into their personality. Below are cool, wearable looks any destination bride
can achieve on her own or with the help of a professional. Whichever gorgeous hair-do you wear, your mane will still look put together when all of the hired paparazzi takes notice.
To achieve the new, great breakout trend, the imperfect side braid, on your wedding day, start by parting the hair on the opposite side of how it falls naturally. Mist the top of the hair with John Master Organics Sea Mist. Gather the hair into a low side ponytail and plait it, securing the ends with a clear elastic rubber band. Finish the ends by allowing a few pieces to come out of the elastic.
To create the natural tousled beach look with your highlighted long layers, spray on Rene’ Furterer Naturia dry shampoo, let it rest a minute and mists hair with Sally Hershberger Shagg spray. Then finger comb to give it that tousled, just rolled out of bed look.
On the runway, hair stylist Guido Palau creates many soft, effortless and elegant buns. The classic ballerina bun works best on light to medium hair that falls to the neckline or longer. This is a great look for a summer bride who’s wearing a strapless dress. Very lightly, spritz the hair with Redken Full Volume Amplifier, back brush with a soft brush and mist with L’OREAL Elnet Satin Hairspray. Rough up the hair and then secure with hairpins or your favorite hair comb.
Faux bob works best for shoulder length or longer layered hair. This look is flirty for an evening wedding on a hot summer night. To play up the glamorous, classic look add a Swarovski crystal barrette or a vintage brooch right out of your jewelry box.
Side pinned roll works best on straight or wavy shoulder length hair. Spritz hair with John Frieda Frizz-Ease Dream Curl spray. Parting strands down the center and securing on the sides is a sexy way to go. Gather hair into a low pony and pull locks over and under, wrapping until a messy roll is formed. Use pins to hold the shape and a vibrant tropical hibiscus flower if you’re getting married on the beach.
