Tick bridal hair off your big day to-do list and find the look of your dreams in our collection of wedding hairstyles. 

Walk down the aisle feeling and looking flawless with a gorgeous wedding hairstyle. Perfectly matched to your gown, this year’s hair trends are the ultimate way to complete your wedding day look.

Flowing tresses make for an effortlessly romantic wedding hairstyle – and are right on trend. Slick and straight or tumbling in retro fashion, leaving your hair loose is making waves this wedding season.

Pay attention to bridal runways and you’ll notice letting your hair flow isn’t the only way to hit a fashion high note. Updos are also among the hottest bridal hairstyles of the year - but not the traditional styles of years gone by. Instead, 2017 is all about tousled topknots, textured ponytails and wispy chignons.

Find your dream bridal look with these gorgeous wedding hairstyles for 2017.

Vintage Waves

Vintage waves

Best for: Boat-neck dress

Elegant and timeless, this Hollywood look works on all types of tresses. Glossy vintage waves are hot for brides this year, perfect for those who love retro glamour. Finish off this bombshell style with classic red lips and a delicate hair-slide. 

Sleek and straight

Best for: V-neck dress

For brides, 2017 is the year of sleek hair, with poker-straight locks being spotted all over wedding catwalks. For an ultra-shiny look, glide the ghd platinum™ styler through your tresses.

Tip: To give this bridal style an extra dimension, embellish your straight look with a headband.

Volume Blow-Dry

Volume blow-dry

Best for: Strapless dress

Big, glamorous and glossy - fashion is favouring the classic bouncy blow-dry. This full volume wedding hairstyle is striking and guaranteed to capture the attention of your groom and guests. The key to creating statement volume is to use the ghd air® professional hairdryer, directing the airflow from roots to the ends. 

Romantic chignon

Best for: Sheer-panelled dress

Chignons epitomise romance and will continue to play a part in weddings this year but with a tousled curly update. With loose tendrils framing your face and undone texture at the back, you’ll love this bridal updo from every angle. Pretty chignons are super versatile and perfect for any wedding theme, whether you’re going for a bohemian or black-tie affair. 

Micro braids

Best for: Off-the-shoulder dress

Tiny plaits have been making their way into hairstyles everywhere in the last 12 months, making a leap from festivals to weddings. Weave them into a half updo or use them to embellish a loose textured down do. If you’ve chosen a Bardot-style wedding dress, this bridal hairstyle is perfect for balancing out your look.

Tip: For a natural vibe, simply press the ghd platinum™ styler at the end of your micro braids to keep them in place, rather than using hair ties. 

Crown braid

Best for: Scoop-neck dress

Wrap tousled braids around your head for a wedding style worthy of a Greek goddess. The crown braid is set to be one of the hottest looks for 2017 bridal beauty and is truly romantic. Elegant and feminine, this style is bound to make you feel radiant on your wedding day.

Tip: This high-rise hairstyle works best on long locks, but those with shorter hair can recreate it with the help of a faux hair headband. 

Tucked low do

Best for: Square-neck dress

Take your tresses to another level with a vintage upwards roll. Twisted and tucked, the dreamy bridal hairstyle exudes classic glamour and shows off your shoulders. With your locks styled in a timeless updo, you’ll be free to enjoy your big day feeling confident about your hair. 

Plaited Ponytail

Plaited ponytail

Best for: Dramatic back

Make an impact on your big day with a braided high ponytail. The style can offer a relaxed look while also radiating bridal glam. Effortless and textured, keep the braid loose and gently teased to master this wedding hairstyle in romantic fashion. Tumbling past your shoulders, a plaited ponytail perfectly complements a gown with a dramatic back. 

Waterfall braid

Best for: Straight necklines

If your dress is elegantly simple at the front, balance it out with plenty of drama at the back. An intricate waterfall braid can instantly add a touch of romance to your wedding hair. Pair with tumbling soft curls and delicate fresh blooms for a truly beautiful bridal look.
