Hairstyles for Brides

You’ll look radiant with these classic, romantic looks. Here’s how to get them.

A slightly pulled-apart two-strand fishtail braid is perfect for a bohemian-chic wedding. Loose French braids, pinned up, are elegant and romantic. You can also try a reverse French braid updo by starting the braid at the nape of your neck and braiding up to the crown of your head. In all cases, be sure the braids aren’t too tight; keep them a little undone-looking. And prep your mane with Suave® Max Hold Sculpting Gel. Even if your hair isn’t curly, this product will keep your braid sections controlled and defined.

Ballerina Bun

A sleek, classic chignon is easy to create and can be worn high, low or to the side, depending on your face shape and the style of your dress. Start with clean, damp hair. Apply Suave Professionals® Sleek Anti Frizz Cream from the middle of the hair shaft to the ends, avoiding the roots. Blow-dry your hair smooth, then comb it carefully and pull it into a tight ponytail at the place where you would like your chignon. 
Wrap the ponytail around its base and pin the ends underneath. 

Low Ponytail

A smooth pony at the nape of the neck is simple, clean and classic, especially with a tiara. To get the necessary sleekness and volume, apply Suave Professionals® Sleek Anti Frizz Cream to the sides of your hair and Suave Professionals® Natural Hold Hairspray to the crown before you style.

Loose and bouncy

Wearing your hair down on your big day can be youthful, sexy and glamorous. Start with Suave Professionals® Natural Volume Mousse for extra body. Blow-dry, then wrap medium-size sections around a one-inch curling iron. Spritz with Suave Professionals® Natural Hold Non-Aerosol Hairspray and let it sit for a minute. Finally, tease the hair at the crown of your head and lightly brush through your curls until they form smooth waves. 

Loose and curly

Soft spirals are always in style for weddings. Begin with Suave Professionals® Firm Control Boosting Mousse, blow-dry, then set your hair in medium-to-large hot rollers. Once the rollers have cooled, remove them, bend over and brush through the curls with your fingers. To add definition, use a curling iron to curl a few sections throughout your hair.
