Half up half down bridal hairstyle

When it comes to bridal hairstyles, many choose to play it safe with traditional styles. If you find these a bit boring and prefer something more chic and trendy, we have some ideas for you. One of these looks is sure to be perfect for your special day.

While we are seeing some weddings being put off until next year, there are those couples that just may be choosing to downsize the guest list in exchange for a smaller, more personal venue for a 2020 wedding. Whether you choose to come into our salon to do your bridal hair, or book us to come to your venue, it’s important to determine which hairstyle works for you ahead of time. The more things you can get checked off on that “to-do” list, the less you have to stress about as your day nears.

Long Braids- Long braids of various styles are a fun trend in wedding hair. They are beautiful, romantic, and easy to personalize with accessories. Some of the more popular styles this season are soft and flowing mermaid braids with strings of pearls or rhinestones interwoven in the braid, or loose fishtail braids with curled face framing tendrils.

Ballerina Bun- This one was really popular in the wedding scene two decades ago, and it’s making a comeback this season. This is the perfect style for a modern minimalist look. The smooth sleek lines put your makeup in the spotlight, accentuating your natural beauty.

Vintage Updo- Many brides tying the knot in 2020 are paying tribute to The Roaring Twenties with a chic finger wave updo. This classy and sophisticated style pairs equally well with vintage dresses and modern bridal gowns alike.

Half Up Half Down- Don’t think that you are limited to updos for your big day. A half up hairstyle gives you the best of both worlds. These hairstyles make your hair a main focal point, showcasing your lovely locks in a beautifully elegant way. Perhaps you would like a soft and feminine half up milkmaid crown with flowers woven in, or a waterfall braid with long loose waves. With so many variations possible you can customize the look to reflect your own personal style.

Pro Tip- don’t wait until the big day to try them out. Give them a trial run now so that you can see how they hold up throughout the day with your own unique hair type. This will give us time to make adjustments as needed for the perfect wedding day hair.
