Just like any other aspect of wedding trends, bridal hairstyles are ever-evolving (thank goodness might we add! Would we really still want to have all that crimped hair underneath our veils these days?) So what exactly can you expect to see in wedding hair in 2020?
This year, we will be seeing a lot more of the relaxed hairstyles that have started trending over the last few wedding seasons. Long gone are the days of complicated up-dos and cans of hairspray to keep everything intact. In general, brides are trying to work with what their hair does best rather than the other way around.
Need some inspiration for your bridal locks? Here are the 8 most popular wedding hairstyles for 2020.
1. Messy, yet refined bun
All eyes were on Meghan Markle last year as she dazzled her way down the aisle to marry Prince Harry, and no one could stop talking about her hair styled in a slightly messy, yet completely gorgeous and sophisticated bun. Loose tendrils were strategically pulled out to give the hairstyle a more relaxed look letting the veil and tiara be the star of the show.
It’s no surprise then that a Meghan copycat hairstyle is trending this year. Not only is her hairstyle easy to pull off, but it also doesn’t require a quart of hairspray to hold. It looks completely natural – perfect for the no-fuss bride.
2. Sleek and simple
Another trend that will be big in 2020 is simply wearing your hair down and straight. This is especially welcoming news for brides who have fine hair that doesn’t curl or style very easily.
All that’s needed is a flat iron and a little spritz of hairspray to keep flyaways to a minimum. Dress it up with a veil, hair accessories, or some strategically placed bobby pins. Or just lean into the look and wear it as is.
3. Wavy and relaxed
Intricate up-dos are no longer what every bride is envisioning for her wedding day look. Instead, many are opting for effortless, bohemian looking waves that pair perfectly with a veil, flower crown, or a small hair clip or decoration.
4. Classic bun
There’s one wedding hairstyle that will never go out of style and that’s the classic, tidy bun. If you’re not one for a messy or undone look, you should consider a simple, swept back bun. This style will keep the hair out of your face, look elegant with any cut of dress, and pair well with a veil should you choose to wear one.
A chic, simple bun can balance out a dramatic dress or makeup look allowing the rest of your look to take centre stage.
Is there anything more elegant than a braid? Whether you choose to put your hair in one loose, romantic braid or you opt for multiple braids, this easy hairstyle will make a huge impact on your wedding day look. Look for braids of all shapes and sizes to be big in bridal hair for 2020.
6. Flower clips
Another hair trend you will see this year is the use of grown-up hair accessories like flower clips or pins that are fastened into loose waves, creating a bohemian and whimsical bridal look. This look will pair well with a boho-style dress or simple sheath dress that needs a bit of dressing up.
7. Natural curls
This year’s bridal hair trends are all about embracing what mother nature gave you, and this includes those who were born with curly hair. Instead of spending hours straightening hair or trying to tame it into an up-do, let your curls bounce and shine underneath your veil or a decorative headpiece.
