Summer 2012 Wedding Hair Trends
Posted October 15, 2012on:
Boho braids, pretty ponies and some very old school styles got a new twist on the S/S 2012 catwalks this year, and, oddly enough, nearly every one of the looks was wedding-ready.
Summer is all about an effortless, carefree yet sensual style, making the boho look a staple among designers. Loose braids were the crowning glory of the pretty and playful at Valentino (Redken), creating a soft, romantic feel, while Emilio Pucci went for a messy and loose, ribbon-tied ponytail to finish off a rockier style.
Classic ballet buns, short and slick 40s flicks and Bardot bouffants were executed with style and poise on several S/S catwalks and created a more elegant, refined finish to collections. Marios Schwab models strutted down the catwalks like an army of film noir femme fatales, fiercely confident in their soft, shiny and set crops. Hair was long and loose, but again revived a quintessential female protagonist from a past movie genre, this time the doe-eyed naif, at Versace. Whether you’re a vampish or sweet bride, these looks are all timeless and trendy, a perfect mix.
Up dos were given height with wave-like quiffs at D&G, loosely framing the face and providing the ideal setting for a clip in veil when thinking ‘bridal’. At Louis Vuitton a delicate and ornate traditional tiara sat atop a whispy and messy high bun, replacing the form-fitting top knot favoured last season.
Trend Alert! – Pearl Details at Chanel
Brides and pearls go together like Chanel and quilted flap bags, so we were truly inspired when we saw some of these pics from Chanel’s 2012 show. Slicked back buns were decorated with sprinkles of oversized pearls which, in some cases, dropped down the back alien like and delicately beautiful.
