Fashion Week isn't all just about the gorgeous dresses – it's also the perfect place to get inspired by the hottest beauty looks of the season. So brides-to-be, listen up: from ballerina buns to effortless mermaid waves, here are five runway-inspired bridal hairstyles of 2017 to rock on your wedding day.
A fresh, new take on the traditional French chignon, braided updos are making a welcomed appearance on brides everywhere. Sure, this complicated hairstyle may require patience (and nifty fingers) to pull off, but what's not to love about this romantic look that's the perfect mix of schoolgirl chic and easy elegance?
Coachella-lovin' brides: take note! Now that Spring has officially sprung, floral crowns are all rage again – as seen on the runways of Marchesa and Temperley London at Bridal Fashion Week. But to keep your bridal look updated for 2017, go wild with fresh flowers in deep rustic hues (think plum, rust, and brick red) for that bold, bohemian vibe.
The ballerina bun
As far as classic bridal hairstyles go, you can never go wrong with the sophisticated ballerina bun. Sure, it may be a little conservative but there's no better way to show off your décolleté and shoulders in a sexy open-back gown than with this timeless updo.
Statement hair accessories
Who needs jewellery when you've got blinged-out hair accessories to elevate your bridal look? From tiaras to dainty headbands, diamante hair barrettes, and over-the-top bejewelled headpieces (see Naeem Khan above), there's no denying the allure of a stunning statement headpiece as the perfect finishing touch.
Can't be bothered with stiff updos and overcomplicated hairstyles? Well, good news: bridal hairstyles are going au naturale for 2017 – as seen by the tousled waves sported by the models at Monique Lhuillier and Reem Acra. Simply spritz sea salt texturizing spray onto your tresses (we recommend Bumble and Bumble's Surf Spray) for effortless, windswept waves reminiscent of a beach goddess.
