    The best tie of the season practices restraint – at least when it comes to the hairdo! With its simple elegance, a sleekly styled ponytail is simply irresistible. The ponytail tied low at the back of the neck is a classy variation. A colour-coordinated hair band (white lace for example) matches the bridal hairdo to the wedding dress without stealing the show. An extravagant bridal gown is the perfect partner for this hair look

    Opposites attract – so a fake hairdo works well with true love. Try a faux bob for your special day, an imitation short haircut. You can transform your mane into a chin-length masterpiece without taking the big step of cutting it off. Style it in a bit of a wave and enter the port of matrimony with an enchanting retro look. A great match: The bob and a high-necked bridal gown work well together – especially stylish with fringes or feather details in the twenties style

    Beautiful blooms have long since gone beyond the bridal bouquet, making the bride’s hair blossom as well! Fabric flowers or jewellery, solo or as tendrils, the floral arrangement makes any hairdo attractive and eye-catching. The most appealing flower power pair: flowery hair accessories and braided hairstyles. Very romantic! You should avoid plastic blossoms though. They can quickly destroy the glamorous wedding look,

  • Bridal Hairdo: Dress Rehearsal

    Just like the wedding banquet and wedding dance, the bridal hairstyle wants to be rehearsed. A few weeks before your wedding, get together with your hairdresser and try out the hairdo of your dreams from start to finish. This saves you from nasty surprises later on and you can be certain that the hairdo really works for you and goes well with your wedding dress. Not to mention that a trial run is important for timing to avoid unnecessary stress on the big day. Now all that is left is to say 'I do!' to the right hairdo.
