WAVY PONYTAIL

Ponytails are having a major moment in the wedding world. Create cool-girl vibes by styling your locks into soft textured waves before gathering them into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. Leave out a small section and twist it around the hair band to finish off the look.

Tip: Gently tease out tendrils at the front of your hairline to frame your face.

EMBELLISHED WAVY HALF UPDO

Prove that waves and braids are a match made in heaven with this wavy half updo. Leave a large section of loose waves to tumble down your back and then twist and plait the rest in fishtail-fashion. Adorn with a floral headband and you’ll epitomise elegance on your wedding day.

BEACH WAVES

Beachy hair, don’t care – this type of wavy bridal hair perfectly complements a destination wedding. As you walk down an aisle of sand, with the sea breeze on your cheeks and the sun beating down, you’ll need a look that gives off laidback-bride vibes. Tousled and full of windswept texture, boho beach waves do just that.

FLOWER-ADORNED WAVY HALF UPDO

Perfectly imperfect, this wavy half updo complements the rustic type of bride, thanks to the beautiful pairing of boho embellishment and soft waves. Add volume to your crown with a little backcombing, before securing your top section of hair into a half updo.

WAVY BLOW-OUT

Bold bouncy waves are designed to capture attention and ensure all eyes are on you on one of the most special days of your life. To achieve this look, use the ghd air® hair dryer and a ceramic radial brush on your tresses. Full of volume and perfectly kinked, the end result is bound to be a head-turner.

WAVY DOUBLE BRAIDS

Keep your hair off your face and let your beauty shine through with double braids. A pair of super-thick rope braids and tousled textured will give your wedding look a stylish edge. Create loose waves first throughout your mane, before sectioning and twisting your locks to the nape of your neck.

Tip: Use the ghd tail comb to inject extra body into your waves with gentle backcombing.
