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. For more tips on creating the perfect modern chignon, take a look at our step-by-step guide.
