The best bridal hair and makeup looks

Last updated:

So the venue is booked, honeymoon ideas are flying and the dream dress has been chosen. Now to perfect all those finishing touches to make sure you feel like the princess you deserve to on your special day.  The way you choose to wear your hair and make up on your wedding day will complete the look you are lusting after, be that natural, vintage, boho or festival glam. I’ve gathered up a few faves for a little splash of inspiration!


For a natural minimalist look a soft updo or tousled half up, half down gives a sophisticated but relaxed feel. Add a jewelled headpiece or tiara for a bit of sparkle. Mix that with neutral, muted make up using light browns or pinks for serene, carefree glamour.

If you are going for a vintage, Gatsby-esque style wedding with 1920’s glamour then heavier make up is a must. A red lippie and smoky eyes finished off with plenty of rouge showcases the era and tousled curls with a glitzy or feathered headband will seal the deal.

I love this fun, relaxed look – chic but a little different and perfect for a garden wedding.  You can go for something big like this flower crown or simply a few select colour appropriate or meaningful flowers woven into your braids. A natural rose based make up suits this bohemian style.

Festival glam

If you want to step outside the box and are having a brightly coloured theme throughout your wedding, then why not go all out and add some extra glitz.  Whether your hair is dyed an extreme colour or you want to embellish with some added sparkle, Festival Chic is certainly the way to do it.
