1. The high bun
Piled high onto the top of the bride’s head, this ultra glam structured up up-do is all about the height. Pin a veil underneath and add a hint of sparkle with a crystal hairpin.

2. The floral headpiece
This style centres on long and loose flowing hair with a natural softness, perfect for romantic, whimsical brides.

3. Low and gathered
The low gathering of this hairstyle is a stunning way to show off a wedding dress with intricate back detail. Gather and pin with pastel flowers and let a few natural curls tumble down.

4. Pin curls
Hairspray will be your shining light with this pin-curl style that involves plenty of grips and expert skill to tease those shapes into place.

5. Short and sweet
Long locks aren’t for everyone and this short style proves a pixie cut can be styled just as elegantly for a wedding.

6. The half-up, half-down
Ah, the now classic half-up, half-down. A favourite among brides and wedding guests alike, this feminine hairstyle is low key and easy to do yourself.

7. Loose and braided
Boho brides with long tresses will love this take on a French plait. Ideal for beach or pared-down woodland weddings.


8. Scattered flowers
Tonged curls with delicately weaved flowers add a magical garden-inspired touch to an otherwise simple style.

9. The side up-do
Wearing a hat? A side up-do with lots of bundled hair pinned into place won’t interfere with the placing of the headpiece.
