Poker straight hair (feat. tons of of hairspray) – Before we spotted this sleek, slicked-back hair on Gigi Hadid for Sports Illustrated, we would empty umpteen cans of dry shampoo to avoid looking like we’ve just dipped our head in a bucket of oven grease. Now, we’re all for it.
Loose up do – We’re all about fuss-free hairstyles. The less time and maintenance it needs throughout the day, the better. This hairstyle has had its fair share of runway spotlight lately after the Altuzarra and Diane von Furstenberg A/W 16 shows. Naturally undone and unraveled filaments of hair look effortlessly put together. Garnish with seasonal blooms for an injection of soft colour.
Braided bun – Dating back to primary school when “physie” (Physical Culture) and pastel lyrca leotards were all the rage, the braided bun was a hit. Though, we’re more than happy to reintroduce the 5-minute coil-braid up do into our bridal beauty lexicon too. Inspired by Giorgio Armani.
The lob – We love the lob. For one, it’s universally flattering. Despite its naturally-awkward length, you can essentially wear it any which way you desire. The lob is another easily achievable and manageable look that exudes the same ‘edgy-elegance’ that designers have been reflecting through their A/W 16 Collections.
My pretty little pony – Sky high pony tails are no longer just reserved for the gym. Wear this look with a severe side part. If you feel like this is a little too harsh, downplay the pony tail by lowering it to the nape of the neck and flipping the ends or incorporating a fun 80s crimp through the body.
The knot – A mix of disheveled and streamlined ‘knots’ infiltrated the A/W 16 Runways. A little bit feminine and a whole lot ‘model-off-duty’, this look is succeeding the classic chignon. We like that the knotted look is not so ‘girly’ yet, still retains a sense of elegance. There will be no tress-regrets when you look back on your wedding photos in 10 years time. Not one.
If you want to be extra savvy at your wedding place a small rescue kit in the bathroom, to avoid any unnecessary tress stress that often occurs from dancing the night away. Our rescue kit includes: 1 x Hair brush, 1 x volumising hair serum, 1 x extra hold hairspray, 1 x dry shampoo, 1 x packet of hair ties and a few hundred bobby pins for those frustrating flyaways.
