Planning your daughter’s wedding has made for a very busy schedule and little time for you. In the midst of last minute stresses, pre-wedding jitters, and bridesmaid dress drama, you shouldn’t forget to take care of yourself. This is why we have compiled the prettiest wedding hairstyles for the mother of the bride; covering all lengths and hair types, from up-dos and beyond! These classy looks will have you looking and feeling fabulous so you can focus on what really matters.

1. Chignon Style

If you have some length to work with you simply can’t go wrong with the classic yet modern chignon. We think this timeless look is the perfect hairstyle for the mother of the bride. It’s a harmonious blend of elegance and sophistication that pairs wonderfully with a detailed neckline or intricate jewellery. With a little help from your stylist, your chignon can be tailored to your taste! Fancy face-framing curls or a run-through braid? With the help of your stylist, anything is possible. It is also the perfect ‘do to sit beneath a hat that will also stay chic even after you’ve taken it off for the dancefloor.

2. Half Up Do

If you have shorter hair, a hairstyle with a lot of volume will suit you best. A half up do can be a smart choice of hairstyle for the mother of the bride because it can help fine hair look full and fabulous. To take your half-up hair game up a notch, accessorise wise. Secure hair in place with a pretty accessory such as a headband or dainty detailed hair clip. We love adding real flowers to clips for a tasteful hairstyle that will be sure to land you some compliments - while not taking away too much of the attention from your baby, of course! Match the accessory to your outfit whilst being mindful of the bridal flowers.

3. Chic Ponytail

For hair-down-to-there length, we love a sophisticated ponytail for a modern, polished look. This hairstyle is elegant enough for the walk down the aisle and secure enough to last through the after-party. Incorporate some soft curls to the end of your ponytail and around the face for a style that is distinguished yet fun. If you’re feeling a bit more daring, ask your stylist to tease some hairs around the crown of your ponytail for a more voluminous look. Try spritzing in some L’Oréal Professionnel Techni.ART Volume Architectthickening blow dry lotion to towel-dried hair for volume that won’t let you down - literally. 

4. Bangs

If eyes are the windows to the soul, then a fringe serves as the beautiful curtains. If you’re working with bangs then you’re in luck - a simple, straight style can look as elegant and put-together as an up-do. Because a fringe is such a statement, you can keep the rest of your hair relaxed to offset this look, such as framing them with a blow dry. If you want to try something new, try side-swept bangs with loose curls for a timeless look that will make for beautiful memories - and photos! Keep strands smooth and your fringe in place by finishing with pro-approved L’Oréal Professionnel Wild Stylers Crêpage de Chignon

5. Curls

Done right, curls are anything but casual. Loose ringlets can give off an air of romantic elegance, whilst providing hair with flawless definition and movement, oh la la. One of the loveliest versions of loose curls is Old Hollywood waves - what’s more timeless than this hairstyle? Beautiful worn down as a hairstyle for the mother of the bride, soft curls can also look gorgeously graceful when pulled into a half updo. 

We recommend that you do a trial run with your hairstylist before the big day to ensure that you’ll be happy with the final result when it counts. It’s also a great idea to make sure you pop into the salon in advance to make sure you’re sporting a colour you love and to try a hydrating treatment - try theL’Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert system. Our fave in-salon service offers bespoke solutions to your hair care concerns. Ask your stylist for a consultation. Remember, these precious family photos will last a lifetime so make sure your happy and looking like the best version of you, rather than trying to mimic someone else.

So, the planning is done and the wedding is here, let these looks inspire you to be the jaw-droppingly stylish mother to the bride you were meant to be!
