Relaxed glam. "Expect to see relaxed styles with loose soft waves and soft curls for a more natural look. Brides are wanting romantic, soft and loose hair that bounces as they walk down the aisle. A classic look that is ageless and very photogenic." —Britnye Shore, Founder, The Bardot

Sparkles. "Gone are strict color-blocked weddings; hello to bold, bright color schemes for ceremonies wedding party wardrobes. Along with these bold color stories are hair gemstones or sparkles. Small delicate jewels or hand painted silver or gold hair glitter is now it. This new trend compliments the inclusion of patterns and textures but has translated to a bride’s hair." —Britnye Shore, Founder, The Bardot

Everyday hair. "Brides want to wear their hair how they normally would to an event and find a way to feel beautiful and natural." —Kari Dirksen, CEO + Lead Planner, Feathered Arrow Events

Middle parts. "Slicked-back looks with middle parts are the new side-swept part! For the bold bride looking to truly make a classic but edgy statement. But don't stop there; the middle part suits various hair types and textures. The possibilities are endless for styling, ranging from loose chignons and effortless beach waves to ponytails and also sets up for incorporating accessories." —Britnye Shore, Founder, The Bardot

Slicked back looks with a statement veil. "We are loving a low sleek bun with a statement veil!" —Bri Williams, Bri Williams Events

Retro looks. "Bring on the Twiggy inspired heavy eyeliner (top only please) coupled with dramatic fluffy lashes and complimented by a lighter shadow. Finish off the look with a pale pink lip and neutral powdered face keeping the emphasis on the dramatic eyes." —Britnye Shore, Founder, The Bardot

Pink! "We are seeing a lot of pink-forward makeup, especially on the eyes." —Bri Williams, Bri Williams Events

Full brows and lips. "The attention has now turned to full brows and natural lips. Full brows are a great way to frame your face and draw attention down to your eyes and lips. Finish off the look with a subtle lip color for a romantic look or a bold color for some drama." —Britnye Shore, Founder, The Bardot

Dewey and glowy looks. "A dewey glow and a bronzed and shimmering décolletage has been a staple as well.” —Bri Williams, Bri Williams Events

Keeping it natural. "Compliments of it-girl Sophia Richie, you can expect to see natural, glowy bridal makeup this season! The look featured lightly blushed cheeks, sun kissed skin, and a subtly pink lip. Her barely-there wedding day style blew up within days of the celebration and is sure to be a go-to trend for brides." —Alexandra Denniston, Owner & Lead Planner, Eventlightenment Planning
