Laid–back waves or soft-styled up-dos, let us inspire your beach wedding hair to withstand the sea air.
OK, so we know it’s only 1st April. We’re still heading out with our scarves and coats on! But we didn’t want to make an April Fools’ Day joke and cruelly talk about the cold and stormy weather. We want to pick up your mood and think about the sunshine, summer weddings, and getting married abroad!
Of course, a UK-based beach wedding is most probably being planned for the summer months (unless you’re braving the winter sea air!). However, the beautiful climates of the countries our brides and grooms choose mean that getting married abroad is a year-round option. So, whenever your big day is, chances a, if you’re saying ‘I Do’ by the sea, then you’ll be thinking of sunshine.
Therefore, this week’s The Beauty Bible is all about styling your hair for that beach-front wedding day. From relaxed, beachy-waves that are in-keeping with the theme and setting for your big day to avoiding the windswept look, let us guide you through our best tips and tricks for beautiful beach-wedding hair.
Use your location to inspire your hairstyle with gorgeous, mermaid-style curls and waves. Perfect for a beachfront setting, it is simple yet glamorous look, and will be the perfect complement to a fishtail gown (tying your beach theme together beautifully). Choose relaxed waves or smooth, defined curls: take a look below for inspiration.
Love the idea of your long hair catching the breeze, but adamant you don’t want it flying in your face and sticking to your lip gloss? A beautiful braid is the answer. Don’t tie a tight plait: instead, have your hair softly braided (like this gorgeous bride), and perhaps tie with a clip, to maintain the effortless look whilst keeping stray locks at bay.
Worried about the sea air playing havoc with your hair? Then why not try a relaxed up-do? We love the look below: it blends beachy waves with an elegant bridal up-do for an effortless style that’ll stay put, even if the winds pick up! Try taking the lead from this beautiful bride and delicately accessorising with on-theme clips and jewels.
Keep your hairstyle simple, and let your veil take centre stage, with a beautiful birdcage or statement headpiece. If you’re worried about a long flowing veil in the sea air, but love the bridal tradition of wearing one, try a neat headpiece, like this beautiful bride’s, that’ll stay neat and in place. Style your hair simply and naturally underneath (whilst protecting it from the sand and spray!).
