Wedding bells are ringing as the spring season gets underway, and brides-to-be are counting down the days ‘til they tie the knot. With the venue, dress and guestlist sorted, what’s left for the bride to do than consider her hair for the big day? At Additional Lengths, we’ve seen some absolutely perfect bridal hair looks and want to share a few of our favourite wedding hairstyles with you.
From fashion runway to the aisle
Taking inspiration from hairstyles seen on the catwalk can be a great way to freshen up your bridal hair Pinterest boards. Bridal Fashion Week showcased some of the latest creations from many well known fashion designers’ bridal ranges, but of course, we showed a lot more interest in what was happening with the hair!
Here are some of the top styles showcased at Bridal Fashion Week 2017:
- A 1920s’, flapper girl inspired bob with side parting and waves.
- Natural waves with plenty of texture, pinned to one side with embellished hair clip.
- Low ponytail tied with bow, loose tendrils of hair framing the face.
An elegant up-do
Such a classic wedding hairstyle, the up-do can be created in so many visually pleasing ways! Embrace the braid hair trend of 2017 and work several braids into one up-do, working in plenty of different textures for that casual finish. If you prefer a more sleek wedding up-do, a chic chignon or bun can work wonders to elongate the neck, show off earrings and just generally look fabulous. With hairspray, pins and creativity, a traditional up-do can be refreshed and updated for a more personalised finish. We love the volume of loosely pinning up curled or waved hair, allowing some bits to fall around the face.
Remi Cachet hair extensions can be worn up or down effortlessly to create a bridal hair look
A popular wedding hair look is the half-up-half-down hairstyle which keeps hair off the face, while also having some length at the back. The top section of hair can be twisted and braided for extra texture, and the bottom half treated to loose waves for a whimsical finish.
Long locks for a special day
Walk down the aisle with a completely special look, different from your usual hair, with hair extensions. A day with long locks can transform and elevate your personal style. We have an exceptional range of Remi Cachet hair extensions available at Additional Lengths that come in an array of beautiful shades and tones to perfectly match your natural hair colour, and with different application method options. The tape in hair extensions can provide a temporary look, providing volume, thickness and length for the duration of your special day, while more permanent extensions, such as the Remi Cachet Ultra Tips, offer a longer lasting option that can be easily styled for your perfect wedding hair look.

Whether you’re having a sister, a close best friend or a whole fleet of them, bridesmaids can rock a special ‘do for your special day, too. At Additional Lengths, we absolutely love the on-trend loose waves look; it’s ultra feminine and works really well on all hair lengths. With the GHD Classic Wave Wand the ladies can even do their own hair to perfection, with the easy-to-use curling wand which creates consistent waves. GHD are renowned for high-quality heated stylers, which provide professional results. By using the GHD Classic Wave Wand (and a spritz of hairspray), your bridesmaids hairstyles will remain in place all day and night!
The classic veil has so much traditional appeal, but sometimes a little refresh can be a good thing. Show off your hair by leaving the veil alone and opting for hair accessories that will bring additional embellishment to the hair for your special day. Even going for a tiara will still be in keeping with the timeless bridal hair accessory look, but will offer a bit more sparkle than a full veil. Beads and diamantes can look beautiful with the right placement, and offer just the right amount of sparkle to be subtle and tasteful. This bridal hair accessory option would look exquisite with brunette or auburn hair as the contract between the hair shade and the embellishment would make for a stand out look. Better still, wind the beads into the hair through a plait for a stunning hair adornment every bride would love.
Take it back to your childhood with a pretty hair band which can provide a bohemian look if decorated with flowers, or why not go full flower power with a floral crown? They can match your bouquet for a co-ordinated look.
We hope that you’re willing to say ‘I do’ to our beautiful wedding hair ideas for your big day. With so many bridal hairstyle options to ponder over, from Remi Cachet hair extensions to accessories, you’ll find that the perfect wedding day hairstyle for you is just waiting to be tried out!
