Finger wave

Even though this was one of the most popular styles throughout the 1920s, it still looks amazing today! Give yourself a modern twist by parting your hair down the middle (instead of at the side), and wrap the rest of your hair in a loose bun.

Chignon

A classic chignon is ideal for a bride with thick, long hair that is often textured or unruly. A style like this keeps it in place all day long, and won’t create tension at the base of your scalp. Make sure to keep a few extra bobby pins in your kit, just in case!

Hair comb

Accessorise a classic hairstyle with a beautiful hair comb, which can also be your ‘something old.’ Pearls, flowers and other little hair ornaments are a match made in heaven if your dress features lots of white lace.

Ringlets

Give your hairstyle a bit of a 1950s influence with ringlets. They are perfect for brides with really thick or course hair, which needs to be tamed throughout the day. Feature a few ringlets on the side of your hair and simply create a neat and tidy bun with the rest that’s leftover.

Tight curls

Who can resist a classic curl on their wedding day? Use a pair of hot rollers overnight if your hair finds it difficult to stay in shape. And don’t forget to use a generous amount of hairspray for extra hold.
