South Africa's top wedding hair trends for 2018
28 August 2018
Getting married is undoubtedly one of life’s most memorable moments. Because the occasion is so special – and all loved ones are watching – brides, unsurprisingly, want to look their best – and that applies to their hair too.
But in some ways, choosing the perfect bridal hairstyle is even harder than choosing the perfect wedding dress or gorgeous nails for your big day. Should a bride opt for a cascading mane or updo for their big “I do”? What about a classic, natural appearance, or a complex weave to make that long aisle feel like a fashion runway of confidence instead? The options and variations on offer are seemingly endless, which makes the whole affair of selecting the right ‘do unnecessarily stressful.
If you have wedding bells on the horizon this year, don’t worry about choosing the right hairstyle to rock on your special day. Sit back and relax, because we’ve narrowed down your choices of five trending 2018 African wedding hairstyles.
1. The Versatile Updo
If you want a traditional look, you can’t go wrong with a classic updo. Be sure to round off your timeless appearance with flowers or graceful jewellery. You can, of course, go for a more modern or fantasy interpretation if you want, similar to below.
2. The Braided Bun
Bun hairstyles are classic, too. Give the look an elegant African spin with braids, and feel free to incorporate hairbands and accessories for your own added personal touch.
3. The Statement Afro
Marriage itself is a big statement – you’re committing to somebody for the rest of your life. Why not symbolise the size of your pledge with a matching hairstyle? Afros are big, bold and beautiful.
4. The Striking Short
If you’ve got short hair, there’s no need to spend months growing it for the big day! Shorter locks are picture-perfect and modern, and when paired with the right veil, simply stunning. Feel free to experiment with other hair accessories until you find what suits you best.
5. The Expressive Sculpt
If you’re going all out on your special day, why not go for something that’s undoubtedly one of a kind? Sculpted hairstyles allow brides to truly express themselves in unique ways, with waves, swirls, curves and whatever else portrays their imagination best.
If none of the above bridal hairstyles tickle your fancy, you know there’s only one option left, right? And that’s to pay the experts a visit at your favourite hair salon. They’ll be able to recommend the best look to go with your dress, as well as suggest products that’ll keep your locks in perfect shape for the special day and beyond.
