Ideas for your bridal hair and what to consider

02 Dec 2019

The team at Follicle Hair & Beauty in Plymouth share three types of bridal look created on their own customers and detail their top tips when choosing your wedding hairstyle

Situated on Lanhydrock Road in St Judes, Follicle Hair & Beauty comprises a talented team of five professionals with more than 100 years’ experience between them. The team specialise in wedding hair, as well as make-up, nails and other beauty treatments.

With a private area for the bride, bridesmaids and others in the wedding party, Follicle Hair & Beauty ensures an exclusive experience for each of their wedding clients. The team can also travel to the bride’s wedding venue on the day of her wedding.


When considering your wedding hair, there are many aspects to think about. These include:

  • Your wedding dress. Think about the style, detail and neckline. A dress with lots of embellishment and a high neckline may be best complemented by a fuss-free up-do, while a minimalist dress can encourage a more intricate and detailed hairstyle. Take a picture of your wedding dress along to your bridal hair trial and show your hairdresser, who can offer their expert advice.
  • How do you wear your hair usually? Your day to day style will give you an idea of whether you’re most comfortable wearing your hair up or down on your big day.
  • Accessories. Do you want to wear a tiara or hairpiece? Any accessories should be brought along to your trial so your hairdresser can gauge how best to position and secure them.
  • Hair colour and cut. Consult with your hairdresser on when to have your hair cut and coloured before the big day. Don’t go for anything drastically different too close to the wedding day, or you may regret it in years to come.

Take a look at some of the bridal hairstyles created by the Follicle Hair & Beauty team and save them to your wedding moodboard. 



Bridal bun

Gather hair into a statement bun that is classic, elegant and will stay put all day long. Smooth strands for a sleek look or opt for curls pinned to the side. Finish with flowers or a diamante hair accessory.



Glamorous curls

Always a favourite among brides, curls can be worn down or half-up half-down. Perfect for a boho wedding or a timeless bridal look, there are various types and sizes of curl to achieve the desired effect. Rollers, tongs and wands can be used depending on the bridal look you yearn for.




Chic chignon

Add volume at the crown and fix the hair into pin curls at the nape of the neck. If your hair is prone to frizz and flyaways in humid or wet weather, an up-do smoothed with serum and fixed with pins and hairspray might be the perfect option for you.
