5. Rose-shaped curls
Loose curls are always a winner when it comes to trending hairstyles for the big day but why not take this classic look to the next level with some pretty flowers. This bride’s unique hairstyle features relaxed curls that flow down in thin waves.
In place of the traditional flowers that are used in bridal hairdos, this style uses the bride’s hair to form two rows of stunning rose patterns.

6. Bow style
A gorgeous bow can add a sweet rustic style to your wedding attire while giving your hair more dimension. If you consider yourself an uber-modern bride, stray away from the norm in favour of a more unique accessory- your own hair!
This bride’s hair is styled in beautiful tresses that are embedded with tiny pearls. The highlight of this look is the incredible bow that is styled with the bride’s hair. It is accented with three pearls at the centre for the finishing touch.
Trending hairstyles like this one can be hard to replicate on your own, so hire a hairstylist who can help you get this look for your big day.
7. Fishtail braid
The bridal shower calls for trending hairstyles that are a little more casual and relaxed. So many brides opt for a textured side braid that is loosened for more volume. To achieve this voluminous look, you can set your hair in loose curls before you begin braiding.
This gives your hair the necessary thickness and also lets you add accessories like beads or flowers. Once the braid is loosened, you can bring a few curls to the front to frame your face.
8. Waterfall braid
Beautifully braided hair is a sure-fire way to win the hearts of your wedding guests and give your look an ethereal, chic vibe. Fish-tails and side braids are a favourite among many brides but to add an element of uniqueness to your look, you can opt for a waterfall braid. This hairstyle is the perfect blend of loose curls and braids.
The base of the hairstyle is set in loose beachy waves. Sections of the hair are braided in a criss-cross pattern to resemble a beautiful waterfall. This bride’s hairstyle incorporates a combination of thick and thin braids for that funky and fabulous look.
Your bridal look simply isn’t complete without a gorgeous hairstyle and while there’s no shortage of hair inspiration, you can get bogged down by all the choices. You want to look good and feel good on your wedding day so plan your hairstyle well in advance.
This includes getting hair treatments and colour corrections so you can rock a creative hairdo at your wedding functions. We hope this list of trending hairstyles can help you pick the perfect look for your big day!
