2012-2013 Wedding Hair Trends

A wedding day will be one of the most memorable and special days of a woman’s life, and looking immaculate will be top on the priority list of any bride-to-be. Finding the perfect dress is key to the big day, though your hairstyle can also make or break your look. Taming unruly hair on your wedding morning is easily achieved with hairspray and frizz ease serum, so all that’s left to consider is your wedding hair look. Take inspiration from hot celebrity brides of the past year, as well as incorporating predicted 2013 trend ideas.

Simple hairstyles seemed to be the celeb hair trend of 2012, with famous brides foregoing elaborate styles in favour of more natural looks. For her low-key wedding this year Natalie Portman wore her hair down in loose tousled waves and accessorised with a garland of delicate flowers. If your hair is naturally wavy, be sure to prep it on the morning of your wedding with a curl defining serum and a light mist of hairspray to ensure the style holds all day. A floral hairband is perfect for a spring or summer wedding and you can choose delicate blooms which complement the colour scheme of your day.

In contrast to the flowing locks of Natalie Portman, other celebrities chose to wear their hair swept into an up-do. This is a great look to pair with a strapless wedding gown, baring shoulders and helping to create a streamlined silhouette. If wearing a traditional veil for your wedding the up-do is also a great option as it avoids looking overly fussy. Both Drew Barrymore and knitwear heiress Margherita Missoni demonstrated the up-do and veil look, with Drew choosing to add glitz with a jewelled hairpiece. Margherita also added interest to her look, by incorporating twisted plaits which crowned her head. Braids are a timeless wedding hairstyle and will continue to look hot into 2013.

Getting married next year? Take a look back at classic hairstyles for inspiration. Celebrities have been working the beehive hairdo throughout 2012 both on and off the catwalk. Jennifer Lopez, Scarlett Johanssen and Lady Gaga have all regularly showcased a 1960’s beehive, proving that the look can be tailored to suit any individual’s style. The fashion pack is predicting this bouffant look will be huge – literally! – for weddings next year, and it featured in a number of shows during Bridal Fashion Week. Channel the classic beauty of Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor by opting for this voluminous choice for your wedding day. Your stylist can tame flyaways with a controlling serum, creating perfectly pouffed retro chic.

For your 2013 wedding, take note of celebrity hair tricks from the past year, as well as looking further back in history to re-create an iconic beehive look to complete any bridal outfit.
