2016’s Best Bridal Hair Trends

As the majority of us struggled to get through the dreary winter months, there were those lucky ladies who have been putting the finishing touches to their 2016 wedding plans. Are we envious? Well maybe a little.

In the countdown to the big day, hair becomes a big, and often last minute decision. Here is our guide to the best bridal hair trends of 2016 – and how to tailor this to your style.

Bohemian Beauty

Unstructured wedding hairstyles are taking the spotlight this year, with show-stopping styles including tousled waves with floral garlands, braids covered in beads and loosely pinned chignon buns. It is safe to say, in 2016, bridal hair is beautiful and a little bohemian!

If you are a longer-haired lady then loose waves can be a tempting option for your big day, but you should find a way to personalise this look so it suits you. Hair embellishments like jewels are a big bridal trend and flowers are fabulous too – the bigger the better!

Long and Lustrous

If you are considering wearing your hair down, then bear in mind that your mane needs to be in tip-top condition – we’re talking no roots and plenty of shine! If your hair is quite fine, or not as long as you would like, you may want to consider enhancing your tresses with Great Lengths hair extensions – to help bulk it out and offer extra volume and length. Our base shades range consists of dozens of different colours that can perfectly match the natural tones of your hair, and our bonds are neat and very discreet – no one would know but you! Lasting around five months per application (if well maintained), your hair extensions will take you through your wedding, honeymoon and beyond.

Chic Chignon

For most, a classic up-do achieves a fuss-free finish that allows the dress to do all the talking. Up-do styles are also popular if you are considering a veil as it gives you a base to attach it to. A chic chignon is classic and timeless, made all the more impressive with plenty of hair that can be twisted and pinned in a variety of different ways. If you are looking for extra thickness, why not enquire about our temporary GL Apps hair extensions. Lasting for around four weeks per application (perfect for the wedding and honeymoon), they can be used to achieve extra body – helping to transform any chignon from flat, to full and fabulous!
