Wedding Hair Up-Styles

Hair worn up is a traditional bridal look.  If you can, show your hair stylist a photo of your wedding dress so we can work with you to create a hairstyle that is in keeping with the style of your wedding dress and any bridal theme you may have.

While traditional wedding upstyles remain a firm favourite with brides, we have also seen an increase in retro wedding hairstyles. Many brides will wear a veil, flowers or jewelled tiara or clip so we can also create a hairstyles around your hair accessory.

Bridal Hair Worn Down

The neckline of your wedding dress may help you to determine whether to wear your wedding hair up or down.  Low-backed, strapless and spaghetti strapped dresses look sensational with curly long hair cascading down your back or to one side.  We can create beautiful curly wedding hair which can be dressed up with plaits or worn in a half-upstyle.

Braided hair is fun and flirty so a plaited hairstyle could be the perfect prom hair style for you. Our stylists are experts at twists, waterfall and fishtail plaits, buns and up-does incorporating tiny plaits, and braided hair pinned half up.

Glamorous Curls for Prom and Graduation

If you want a ‘red carpet’ hairstyle then you cannot go wrong with curls formgraduations and proms.  If you decide against permanent curls with a perm, why not let us add temporary curls, sort hair waves, corkscrew curls or spiral curls for your party look?

Hair Up Styles for Prom Parties

There is no doubting that hair worn up remains a popular hairstyles for proms and you can choose from numerous styles.  A traditional look might feature an elegant chignon or bun; a modern dress might suit a casual up-do with brightly coloured hair extensions, or perhaps you would suit a casual classy side bun.  The two upstyles featured here have a trendy ‘edge’ to them. 

Short Prom Hair Ideas

One of the edgiest looks is short hair for graduations and proms.   Make sure you have great-looking short hair with a professional cut and blowdry and consider a dynamic new on-trend hair colour such as pink or purple!  A softer short hair look could feature curls, while a sophisticated hairstyle for short hair can be achieved by parting the hair low on one side and slicking it down. We can also work micro-plaits into your short hair to give you an on-trend prom hairstyle.
