I (Emma here!) love sharing hairstyle trends, whether for weddings or just a night on the town. My favorite hairstyle as of late is the low rolled updo, also known as the ‘Gibson Tuck’. This hairstyle is ideal for medium- to long- length hair (and it looks pretty easy to do yourself). While this style is an emerging trend, it’s not anything new: it’s actually a throwback style from the 1890′s. Show it off as-is or add a gorgeous hair accessory, like an embellished headband (like the one shown below). Read on to find out more…

Happy Weekend! We’re popping in to share some hair-spiration for your wedding day. You’ve seen plenty of hair up wedding hairstyles, so today we’re sharing something a little different.

I love this style because it offers umph and volume and softly frames the face. You can wear this hairstyle with a veil, without, or try one of these veil alternatives instead. Read on to see more…

Looking for the most darling ‘do for your day? One of our favorite wedding hairstyles is the chignon, also known as a messy side bun.

Today, we’ve compiled twelve perfect chignon hairstyles to share with your hairstylist plus a few DIY videos to try at home. But first, check out this adorable photo below by Brita Photography showing a completely candid moment of the bride getting ready. Look at that big smile!

Have you ever wondered how to get more volume in your hair? Today we’re going to show you how to achieve that thicker, fuller look for your wedding day – and beyond – with a few of our favorite tutorials. I have always admired voluminous hair in magazines and photo shoots wishing that I, too, had lustrous, voluminous hair. Then I realized something: I can keep wishing for more volume or I can make it happen. Voluminous hair is the result of a few key essentials like a good diet (high protein can lead to healthier, thicker hair with less breakage), plenty of H20, proper blow-drying techniques (here’s a video to get you started), plenty of hairspray, and abundant amounts of teasing, product-applying, and styling. If you’re opting for a bridal veil alternative, keep in mind that your hair will have nothing to hide behind. If you don’t want your hair to go from fabulous to flat as you walk down the aisle, be sure to give your hair plenty of lift. So, now, let’s show you how to get more volume in your hair with these tutorials PLUS a few hand-picked bridal headbands perfect for sporting your voluminous new ‘do. Enjoy!

Perhaps one of the best hairstyle tips for the bride-to-be is to be comfortable with your hair. Try out a few test runs and don’t go too crazy with a new hair color or a spontaneous hair cut right before the big day. After all, when he sees you walking down the aisle you want him to recognize you, right? I kid, I kid. ;) You get the idea.
We spotted this shoot via Bridal Musings featuring a gorgeous bride with a bridal fishtail braid for her bridal shoot. And, let me tell you – she totally rocked it. This proves the point that wedding hair doesn’t need to be complicated. You can still look chic with an understated coif. In this example, the bride looks happy, relaxed and sophisticated. We love!

Good morning, lovelies! We’re kicking off the week with a hair how-to for brides (or bridesmaids). The side chignon is a chic, sophisticated look that can be pulled tight (a classic chignon) or loosely styled on the side (a side chignon). Last year for my sister’s wedding I chose a side chignon for my hairstyle – and loved it! Since then, I have always wanted to know how to style it myself and I thought this would be a fun how-to to pass along. It’s a great idea to put together a hair look-book for your wedding and discuss with your stylist. This will help you to plan ahead and experiment with different styles and see what works best with your hair length and your accessories (veil, fascinator, hair comb, etc.). Try this beautiful side chignon tutorial for your next party or night out on the town! All you need is a curling iron, hairspray, bobby pins, and a couple of easy-to-follow steps:
