Wedding hair style trends for 2018 embrace a laid-back, no-fuss vibe. Fussy top knots, intricate updos and hairspray stiff hairstyles are out. Wedding hairstyles and wedding hair accessories in 2018 are all about making you feel like your best self and accentuating the bride's natural beauty through natural, easy and effortless looks.
Here are some of the top wedding hair accessories and hair style for today's bride.
Low Messy Buns
Low messy buns, with a few strands left out to frame the face, dominated the bridal fashion week runways. This look is relaxed enough for a beach wedding but can be dressed up with delicate flowers, a wedding comb or bridal hair pins.
Half-up styles may have been the most popular for 2018 bridal shows, and we couldn’t love these looks more. Because half-up hairstyles can be dressed up or down, they provide a lot of versatility. These tend to be loose, soft, and worn with natural hair texture.
Celebrities such as Lupita Nyong'o, Zendaya and Viola Davis, among others, have been influential in celebrating the beauty of natural hair. This is another runway trend that has been on the rise.
Sleek Low Buns with Big Accessories
Low buns are big in bridal this year, and not just the messy variety. Smooth low buns made plenty of appearances, but large flowers, pins, and other adornments accompanied them. This is a fun update on a classic bridal hair.
According to InStyle magazine, Pinterest searches for messy updos are up 1247%. A messy updo with face-framing strands is a romantic style and a stress-free no fuss look that is humidity-friendly, which is ideal for outdoor weddings.
The carefree boho look is still trending and flower crowns are the perfect casual and breezy accessory for an outdoor wedding. Tie in local flowers for a more personal touch.
Laidback, tousled, beachy waves are trending on bridal runways. You can wear soft waves down, half-up, with a braid, or with or without a traditional veil.
Old Hollywood Curls
This glamorous style is a classic that will look lovely years from now in your wedding photos. Big, luscious curls or tighter finger waves work with any length hair.
Long Side Braids
Keeping with the more natural hairstyles of 2018, long, messy braids are on the horizon. A side-swept fishtail braid or loose Dutch braid looks beautiful interwoven with delicate flowers such as baby’s breath.
The hairstyles for brides in 2018 trend toward the laid back and low-maintenance, which brings us to the low ponytail. Whether you rock a sleek and smooth look or go for tousled, wavy strands, the low ponytail is a great choice for your wedding day. It's a no fuss style perfect for wedding reception dancing and can be worn with or without a veil.
