Whether you’re a bride-to-be or have just contemplated how you plan to wear your hair for your wedding day or a special event, we’re willing to bet curls have crossed your mind! Wedding hair curls are timeless and beautiful in the most classic way, yet they can be adapted to suit a variety of styles. Not following? For wedding hair curls here are loose beachy waves for the bohemian gal, ringlets for the girly-girl, and old Hollywood curls for the glamour-loving among us. In any case, technique is key to ensuring you achieve the look you want. We dish why wedding hair curls are so popular and lend you our tips and tricks to achieving the hairstyle of your dreams (since you’ve already found the man!).

Wedding Hair Curls: Beautifully Versatile

We firmly believe the appeal of wedding hair curls lies in the fact that they give off a polished, yet effortless vibe. They give elegance to any look whilst keeping a chill aesthetic. Not to mention they’re incredibly romantic… one of our favourite takes on wedding hair curls? The Hollywood wave. When you think about this hairstyle, it always correlates with making your outfit more glamorous. What’s better? It’s a hairstyle most people feel comfortable with (crucial when deciding on your wedding day ‘do).

Hollywood Waves: The Art Of Deception

Sure, you might think your favourite stars have hair that looks effortlessly curled when they walk down the red carpet, but that’s far from the case. In truth, imitating the highly coveted, loose wave is much more difficult than achieving a ringlet or conventional curl. This gorgeous hairstyle - especially the modern, bigger S - is actually quite tricky. You must put a lot of heat into the root and mid shaft area and not so much on the ends. Whilst it doesn’t really look that complicated, trust us, it is. Pop to the salon for a professional demo, or even better, book your stylist for your big day!

How To Land The Perfect Wedding Hair Curls

If you want to try out this look, figuring out how to part your hair is step one. It’s also vital to ensure your stylist knows what they’re doing and is able to manipulate the hair to get the look you want. If you want to have a look that screams glamorous and cool, go for a centre part. The outfit and theme should also be taken into account, is it formal or a real rager? The most important part of deciding a part will be your face shape. This is because your face shape will play a role in where to place the curl.

For us, volume at the roots is necessary. Spray some L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Volume Lift Spray Mousse around the hairline and then blow dry in the direction that you want the wave to go. Specifically designed to create height at the roots, this product leaves the ends of your hair feeling light and wispy, so it won’t interfere with your curl. But before even going in with a curling iron, you should use L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Heat Protection Constructor. Not only does it save hair from humidity, it also defines the curl and lends longer-lasting results. A thermal-protecting spray that provides a flexible hold, it will ensure your wedding hair curls hold up all through your big day to keep Bridezilla at bay!
