Check out this gorgeous mix of aisle-worthy styles including stylish up-dos, whimsical waves, wedding hair accessories, polished perfection and more. You’ll soon be ticking wedding hairstyle off your ‘to do’ list. Promise.

Whimsical waves

Free flowing waves can be effortlessly chic for brides that want to add an accessory to their look. Tousled waves are perfect for dreamy beach weddings and are so simple to create. Waves can work well for brides with short hair, long hair or shoulder length bobs. To create a wave, simply spritz Beyond the Beach Texture Spray onto towel-dried hair then scrunch or twist in small sections to embrace your natural hair texture. Then leave to dry naturally or blow dry. A spritz of Starlight Glitter Glow Spray will add a subtle luminous shimmer to your hair. Add a flower to the style, and you’ve got that beautiful boho chic look down.

Hollywood Glam

Sleek waves ooze old Hollywood glamour and work well with vintage looks and lace bridal gowns. To create them, start by prepping hair with The Perfect Blow Dry Makeover Spray and then apply Smoothed, Sealed and Sensational No Oil Oil for Thick Hair to keep your strands super smooth. Section the hair into inch thick sections and mist with Reassuringly Firm Session Hold Hairspray. Wrap each section of the hair around a tong and then gently brush through to create a soft wave. Waves look fabulous with a glossy finish, so mist with Eau My Goodness Shine & Fragrance Spray. It smells simply divine too. Add an accessory to finish the look you’ll feel full on film star. This style works well with veils or a statement accessory like an antique brooch. To add a brooch to the hair simply place it in hair and then slip a grip through it to secure. Adam says, “spray grips with Reassuringly Firm Session Hold Hairspray before you use them to ensure they have more hold and don’t slip.”

Perfectly polished

Gorgeously glossy hair that looks healthy is always going to be a winning look and all that you need to create the wow factor when you walk down the aisle. For hair that glistens and shines like the stars, mix Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Treatment Oil+ with Smoothed, Sealed and Sensation No Oil Oil for Thick Hair or Smoothed Sealed & Sensational No Oil Oil for Fine Hair. Work through hair from roots to ends before styling. Blow dry, and then use Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish to give your hair a groomed and perfectly polished look. Finish with Eau My Goodness Shine & Fragrance Spray for that mirror-like glassy shine. This simple, but stunning look is sure to impress. You’ll look every inch the gorgeous bride.

The half-up

The half-up, half-down is a timeless classic that works well on most hair lengths. This incredibly pretty look works with nearly all accessories from hair combs to flower bands. Take a section of hair at the root and spray No Fuss Fabulousness Dry Shampoo, ready for backcombing. Gently backcomb the hair at the roots, then pull the hair back, smooth over with your fingers, twist and secure with a large pin. Finish with Reassuringly Firm Session Hold Hairspray. An effortlessly elegant look that was chosen by Kate Middleton on her wedding day. If it’s good enough for Kate...

Ribbon-tied simplicity

A beautifully ribbon-tied ponytail is an uber chic aisle-style for this summer. For an oh-so-sleek ponytail prep the hair with Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm before blow drying to eliminate frizz. Using a paddle brush, sweep hair back and use a hook band to secure your ponytail in place. Use Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish to tame flyaways. A low ponytail secured at the nape of the neck is super stylish. Take a ribbon and simply tie it around the ponytail. This less is more approach gives an incredibly pretty and romantic feel.

Chic Up-do

A chignon is an achingly glam updo that has been the choice for many beautiful brides including several Royals. A low chignon will look chic on any bride. Fact. To get the look:

  • Use a comb to part your hair down the middle, smooth it behind your ears, and gather it at the nape of your neck. Use a salt spray to make your hair easier to manage.

  • Gently twist your hair from the nape of your neck to the ends, then begin to coil it in a counter-clockwise circle twist your hair into a bun shape using your index finger to hold it in place. Secure each side of the bun with a large bobby pin.

  • Gently pull and loosen the edges of the bun to get the shape you need, then secure all around the bun with smaller bobby pins.

  • Shape the bun by gently pulling outwards and spray with hairspray to set into place. This is a super sophisticated look that will never go out of style.

Hopefully, these heavenly hairstyles have given you all the inspo you need to channel glamour for your big day and choose a look that is entirely you and absolutely amazing. Get ready to make memories that will last forever.
