The Ultimate Bridal Party Hair Guide

Hello my dears!

Has anyone else noticed that this Summer was a total wedding explosion?

It seemed that every weekend had a wedding in it, the salon was a bustle with brides and bridal parties, and nerves were frazzled by many a anxious bride, while other brides were cool and collected as they watched their bridal hairstyle being built. The Pressure Was Officially On.

All this hustle and bustle about weddings got me thinking about putting together a little hair guide for brides, a place where a bride could browse for hair inspiration for herself and her bridal party…….And then send the link to her hairdresser OR, for the brave DIY brides who plan to do their own hair and/or have their maids do each others hair, complete with floral embellishments a’la HTHG’s Stone Fox Bride Floral Hair Coven with confidence and the proper instruction from yours truly.

Let me take a minute to profess My Bridal Hair Mottos:

When deciding on your bridal hair, and/or a hair scheme for your bridal party, choose styles that will allow you to still feel like yourself on your big day. Your wedding day hair should reflect your personality and make you feel like the most lovely version of who you already are.

Unless you are truly a buttoned up perfectionist, don’t strive for hair perfection. The most lovely wedding hairstyles are lived it, fuzzy, and perfectly imperfect.

Whether you plan to DIY your hairstyle or work with a stylist, make sure to do a run-through before your big day.

Before you begin planning your style, take the time to read HTHG’s Bridal Hair Do’s and Dont’s to help you prepare for the best wedding hair possible…..Trust us on this one.

With that said, I won’t waste further time……. Let’s find you a hairstyle that you love.

Here are 3 collections of HTHG DIY hairstyles fit for a bride and her maids, or even for a fancy wedding attendee…….Whether you are the one walking the aisle or not, you deserve to have great wedding hair. We get this. Because other people’s weddings are basically the only time we get to dress up in life.

The first collection of hairstyles has a classic vibe,
