Wedding Guest Hairstyles
Perfecting your hairstyle for the wedding season is always tricky: you want to look elegant and sophisticated without upstaging the bride! And if you can incorporate some of the hair trends of the season, even better! Sound like a difficult task? Not at Regis: from elegant chignons to loose plaits and twists, we’ve rounded-up the top hairstyles for wedding guests that are the perfect mix of demure and on-trend.
Braids and twists are a style staple for spring/summer. Wear yours relaxed and to one side for the perfect finish for a summer wedding ensemble. We’re really loving fishtail braids this season – watch our how-to video tutorial to create the look at home.
Loose, tousled waves are always a good choice for weddings and will work with pretty much any outfit. We recommend using the ghd Curve Creative Curl Wand for this look – the barrel is designed specially to make creating relaxed, boho waves super-easy and quick! For best results, curl 3-4 inch sections and hold in place for 6-8 seconds before releasing. Once all of your hair has been curled, gently soften them into beautiful waves using a paddle brush. Finish by running through a smoothing serum to tame any flyaways.
Classic, tight chignons can look a little dated, so add some texture to yours for a much fresher taken on the style. The key to this look is avoiding a super-groomed finish, so don’t wash your hair sooner than the day before and work some texturising product like DESIGNLINE Texture Tousle Flexible Finisher through the lengths before you style.
