Beautiful spring weather is approaching swiftly, and it is the most popular time of year for weddings. If you have a spring 2017 wedding planned, now is the time to start thinking about your bridal hair and makeup. The top choices for this upcoming wedding season are updos and upstyles that make a classic statement with a modern twist. STYLU has you covered with the top trends we’ve noticed in bridal updos and elegant makeup application.
2017 trends for updos and upstyles
Braids are this year’s choice for adding style to your wedding day. They are a wonderful way to keep hair out of the way during your ceremony and are unlikely to come undone while you party at you wedding reception. Whether you wear them trailing down your back or pulled up into a bun or chignon, they keep the front of your face looking sleek and sophisticated. You can even imitate the look of a flower crown by having your braid wrapped around the top of your head like a halo—a perfect spring time look.
But don’t worry about keeping the braids perfect. Casual braids with a few loose strands look prettier than tight braids plastered to your head.
And that goes for any hairstyle you wear for your spring wedding. If edgy looks are more your style but you want to rock the classic white gown, an undone updo or free-flowing upstyle can add some spice to this spring time sweetness. Have your stylist tease or adds waves to your hair at the beginning of styling to give more flow to your look.
A tip for spring makeup
Spring weddings call for a look that is natural and fresh. Pink lips and rosy cheeks are on trend this year for creating a “blushing bride” aesthetic. This palette works especially well with the whites and blooming flower tones often used in a spring wedding colour scheme. If you’re a fan of the smoky eye, go for a subtle version to keep your face looking cool and fresh. And don’t be afraid to play with white or silver eyeliner rather than traditional black. It can add an unexpected touch of boldness to this soft look.
