The bride’s hair creates a frame around her face, and it is therefore important that you choose the right hairstyle as it is an important part of the overall impression.
Whether you seek professional assistance or take things into your own hands, we recommend that you take your time finding inspiration for your wedding hairstyle and prioritise at least one wedding hair trial before the big day.
If you are wearing a veil or a headpiece, it is a good idea to find your dream dress before so that they match and appear harmonious.

It is also a good idea to bring a picture of your dress to your hairdresser so that you can coordinate the dress, hair and headpiece.
If your dream dress is simple and feminine, then go for a hairpiece and accessories that complement the simple and elegant style. Don’t be afraid to amp up the hairpiece or choose a long veil, but keep the rest of your look pure and feminine.
If you have chosen a lace extravaganza, you can easily go all in on princess accessories such as a tiara or you can add a soft contrast to the dress with flowers or bridal hair combs in loose, wavy hair. Make sure to keep everything tone-on-tone for a more elegant look.

A down hairstyle is beautiful and natural and underlines a personal, carefree look. Soft waves often go well with a veil, hairband, tiara or beautiful bridal hair combs to emphasise the romantic and feminine look. Delicate flowers on one side give a wonderful and stunning look.
Braids, buns or ponytails. Soft and romantic or tight and modern. The updo hairstyle is the classic solution, but can be varied into myriad styles. The hairband or tiara suits a tight and elegant hairstyle, while the looser and more romantic hairstyle is perfect for more feminine hairpieces such as silk flowers and diamond pins. If you choose to wear a veil, it is a good idea to keep the updo hairstyle as classic and simple as possible for a beautiful and elegant look.
