Bridal Hair & Makeup Trends

  • Bridal Hair & Makeup Trends

In a time of heightened social media consciousness, it has become difficult for Brides to decipher everchanging trends. Hence, the bridal styling experience has transformed into a crowded commercial space, which is often confusing to navigate. Fear no longer, however, as we have compiled a list of our favourite hair and makeup looks from the 2017 runway locale. Scroll through with ease, and feel free to take inspiration from these revolutionary and showstopping looks.

Characterised by radiant skin and wash-and-go hair, 2017 catwalk brides exude a fresh and naturalistic glow. Starting us off at Valentino, hair stylist Guido Palau created whimsical and loose hairstyles. Hair was tucked effortlessly behind the ear, and wisps of baby hair were left exposed at the temples.

Another look from renowned hair stylist Guido Palau featured a messy centre part and romantic low ponytail, as seen below. Loosley tied with a ribbon, this style can be easily replicated with any colour ribbon of your choice.

The style below encompasses a similar elegance and sophistiction, reflecting that of Pre-Raphaelite, feminine waves.

Makeup artist Tom Pecheux has sculpted some gorgeous looks that enhance natural features and celebrate the facial structure. Red tones on the ckeeks and lips accentuate these areas, and a light swirl of glitter on the cheekbone acts as an aternate method for highlight.

Copious amounts of glitter are perfect for a festival or bohemian wedding, but can also be used in different thematic settings. As seen in the picture below, subtlety provides the suggestion of glamour, which successfully compliments the sleek updo.

At Elie Saab, Tom Pecheux created a more dramatic makeup look, with feline eyeliner and groomed brows.  

With shots taken by Greg Finck at the Haute Couture SS17 fashion show in Paris, titled as 'The Birth of Light', the collection and subsequent makeup emanate female  prowess in Egyptian culture.

Hair was styled by Orlando Pita. Sleek  and long are words synonyous with this look, as cascading hair is held back with wide satin head bands.

Abigail Grace Bridal Accessories can seamlessly fit into this timeless aesthetic. Our Florie head piece is delicately crafted from six ornamental crystal designs, interwoven with luxury ribbon. This ribbon is neatly finished off at the bottom with delicate navette crystals. Florie is garland-like in nature, and simultaenously withholds a Grecian aura. This can be worn in place of the runway headbands.

Sleek hair that is pulled back from the face was also delivered by Damien Boissinot at Viktor & Rolf.

One of our real Abigail Grace brides is pictured below with a similar sleek back look. She has paired this with our stunning Doreen Hair Vine.

Doreen Hair Vine can also be easily incorporated into ponytails, for a modern and contemporary flair.

Alternatively, Paul Hanlon styled this looped ponytail with black ribbon for Rochas.

Consider hair pins to accessorise this bridal chic fashion. Our Abigail Grace Isla pins epitomise versatility, and can be incorporated into almost all hairstyles. With the ability to alter and interchange positions, these hair pins are an innovative and sophisticated choice for your wedding day. A central flower composed of fresh water pearls with an exquisite diamante centre, is offset by intricate branches of interwoven pearls.

Our model's hair has been styled into a seductive and glamorous updo, by the talented Victoria Lovell at Number Three Bath.

Turning our attention back to makeup, Peter Philips presented this galactic constellation look for Dior. Limited mascara and pale eyelids made for a captivating look, that did not deter from the ethereal placement of stars.

Our real bride, as seen below, opted for a fresh natural look paired with nude lip and light contour. Instead of the constellation seen within the above image by Peter Philips, our bride has found her sparkle within our glistening Ebba headdress.

Peter Philips was also the makeup genius behind this bold and gorgeous glitter-look for Chanel.

Don't afraid to be bold and experimentative with your bridal hair and makeup. As seen below, Sam Bryant's makeup design at Ralph & Russo pushed boundaries and is a subsequent emblem of confidence and fun. The sharp bobbed wig is by Helen Reavey, and is a lovely reminder that short hair can be as impactful as long.

This mesmerising coral shadow by Linda Cantello at Armani Prive is another example of a striking graphic eye design. Cantello is best known for her smokey eye and she did not dissapoint here. The bright lip offsets the coral hue.

Although coral is not everybodys preference, a subtle smokey eye is an effective, tried and tested makeup style. Take a look at our beautiful bride wearing our Bohemia head piece, with a contoured eyeshadow crease that accentuates her eyes.

Finally, models at the Houghton Spring 2017 editorialised their bridal style with enchanting white lashes, which drew significant attention to the model's eyes.

Hair and makeup can be a daunting choice, but rest assured you have all the necessary resources to help you. Catwalk trend or not, choose whatever you feel confident in, regardless of popularity. Whether that be a natural look with a nude lip, a boldly coloured eyeshadow design, or no makeup at all... it's up to you!

This is exactly the same for hair. If you desire tousled waves, a sleek updo, a cutting bob, plaits, ponytails, chignons, a perm or a trendy crimp then don't let anybody stop you.

 Best of luck.
