BRIDAL HAIRSTYLE TUTORIALS: THE CLASSICS

Some bridal hairstyles never seem to go out of fashion. That’s where our bridal hair style tutorials covering the classics come in.

In fact, you may be asked to re-produce versions of the classic bridal hair styles many times over.

However, each time you re-create a classic bridal hairstyle for a wedding, the hair styles will be slightly different. Depending on your client, whether that’s the bride, bridesmaids or the mother of the bride.

As a bridal hairstylist you will need to know how to work with a wide range of hair types and hair lengths.

You’ll also need to learn how to adapt each hair style to suit not only your client’s hair type but also their face shape.

Some bridal hairstyles require classic hair prep, ie heated rollers, and with others you may need to tong the hair, especially if you are looking to create classic Hollywood waves.

Our online bridal hair tutorials will help you prepare for the job at hand.

Heated rollers – if there’s one thing a bridal hairstylist needs in her arsenal, it’s these babies!

 

If you’ve ever attended one of our bridal hair courses, you’ll know that the first thing we cover is correct roller positioning for beautiful, bouncy curls. Even our students who have been styling hair for years find this incredibly useful as Pam’s special techniques, learned from over 20 years of creating beautiful hairstyles, allows for ease of use and gorgeous results every time.

 

Because we love heated rollers so much and we’re always recommending our favourites to our students, we’ve now started selling these in our shop, so you don’t need to go on the hunt for the very best – you can buy them straight from us!

 

Unless you’re used to using heated rollers, you might not be familiar with the effect or know why you need these in your bridal hairstyling kit for almost every style you will ever create. Regardless of whether you’re going for a curly style or a smooth and sleek look, heated rollers are the best way to give your client’s hair fabulous root lift and bounce, creating the perfect base for any style.

 

If you are using your heated rollers for the purpose of creating curls, it’s really important to get the positioning right so that they fall beautifully (get in touch for a Create Beautiful Hair roller setting plan). You can create different types of curls and waves too depending on how you lay the hair onto the roller – you can do a classic wind for a corkscrew curl, or a wind with a twist for more of a beachy wave.

Bridal Hairstyles Created With Heated Rollers

Want to see what styles we’ve created using heated rollers? Here’s a selection by Pam Wrigley.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466852397755{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]With our 1 day braiding course now being available nationwide (in London, Manchester, Bristol and Birmingham), we just can’t stop obsessing over all the gorgeous braided hairstyles we keep seeing all over the red carpet events!

With so many plaits and braids to learn, and so many ways to use them to create unique and beautiful styles suitable for both big events and walking down the aisle, knowing all the hottest braiding techniques is an absolute must for all hairstylists.

We’ve seen so many inspirational styles on celebs recently that we just know our create beautiful hair students and blog readers will love, so here are four of our favourite braided red carpet looks for you to have a go at. Not sure where to begin with how to create these styles? We’re here to help!

Amber Heard, Looped Braid Style

 

If you’re a fan of the messy boho look with added intricacy, then this is the style for you!

Amber Heard is a big fan of braided styles and is regularly seen sporting some incredible plaited creation that manages to look completely fabulous whilst retaining that super sexy relaxed finish.

Amber’s style is designed using Herringbone plaits pinned up into a looped, flyaway style which is actually fairly simple to do if you know the right techniques (which can be learned on our braiding course!). Paired with an edgy and almost futuristic looking cat-eye, this completed look is a real show-stopper.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466850719384{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

Amanda Seyfried, Tight Dutch Braids

 

Ditching her usual ‘natural girly-girl’ look for a hair and makeup style that can only be described as fierce and fabulous at the ‘While We Were Young’ premiere. Amanda Seyfried’s tight dutch braided style is an excellent example of the contemporary rock chic fashion we keep seeing pop up, with just a gentle nod towards nineties styling.

This style isn’t for everyone, but it is absolutely perfect for someone who loves making a statement with their hair choices and wants to flaunt their beautiful, strong bone structure and we love trying out statement styles on our braiding course!

The key to making this style great is to be able to control the plaits well as you create them, to keep them as smooth and tight as possible. Finish with a glossing spritz to boost that shine and you’ll be all set![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466851285094{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

Elle Fanning, Floral Crown Braid

 

Elle Fanning was spotted with a gloriously girly floral crown braid for the premiere of ‘The Neon Demon’ and we are loving it for bridal, bridesmaid and even flower girl hairstyle inspiration.

This is the perfect style for a summer wedding, keeping the hair away from the face and neck and embracing an utterly feminine feel. We just adore the combo of neat but chunky braids, studded with big bright blooms for a real Boheme, flower child vibe.

This could be an ideal option for bridesmaids accompanying a bride who has chosen to go for having her hair down for the big day, with flowers selected to choose the wedding colour scheme.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466851644292{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

Kate Bosworth, Slicked Back Braids

 

Kate Bosworth wore a similar style to Elle Fanning’s at ‘The Big Sur’ premiere, but instead of leaning towards the laid back boho side of things, her hair stylist decided to give her more of a slick, modern finish making this look a bit more catwalk.

This style would work beautifully with a number of different braids that you could learn on our braiding course to make it look even more sleek. Paired with just a little bit of volume at the top and front of the style to give it that fashion feel, this is definitely a braided style to try for 2016.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466851872313{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

Whether you’re a professional hairdresser wanting to up your bridal hairstyling game and stay on top of all the latest techniques and trends, or an absolute beginner looking for an insight into the world of bridal hair and and lots of hands on practice, our 4 day bridal hair course ticks all the boxes.

 

This week we have held our second 4 day bridal hair course of the year (with another coming up in London this November), so what better way to fill you in on what we get up to during those 4 intensive training days than by telling you a bit about it, alongside some of the amazing work our students have created?

 

We’re ceaselessly impressed by the consistently excellent quality of the work produced by students (not just on our 4 day bridal hair course, but on our 2 day and online AQA accredited courses too!), and no matter what their background or previous experience, every student manages to surprise themselves with how much they have learned and how far they have come in such a short amount of time. With only 6 students on our 4 day bridal hair course, you’ll get plenty of 1-2-1 guidance and loads of practice time.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466183762135{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

How does it work?

You might be wondering exactly how we do things on our 4 day bridal hair course and what makes it so great. Here’s a brief run down of what you will cover during your 4 days training with award winning bridal hair stylist, Pam Wrigley:[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466183813353{margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

Pam Wrigley has been a bridal hair stylist for over 25 years, and as you can probably imagine she’s picked up a nifty trick or two which she is now thrilled to be able to share with her students. Even the most experienced stylists attending our courses are always shocked at how much knowing incredible hairstyling techniques can change the way you create bridal hairstyles, and it’s always for the better!

 

If you’re new to bridal hairstyling, this is the best introduction you could hope for – you’ll be learning the correct way, at your own pace, how to put together bridal hairstyles so you’ll never have to undo bad styling habits.

 

On the first day, Pam will give you some really in-depth demonstrations and you’ll start having a go at creating your own styles before lunch! For today, you’ll be getting to grips with these new techniques on training heads so that you’re ready to work with your live models on day 2…[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”19164″ img_size=”full” css=”.vc_custom_1466185072253{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466184505576{margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

First thing, you’ll be introduced to your model (who loves having her hair done, do don’t be nervous!) and then after a quick recap and demonstration you’ll get right into styling.

 

Today, you’ll be expanding your knowledge of working with short hair both as it is and also including extensions. Pam will show you how to create some of the most popular bridal hairstyles for brides, bridesmaids and mother of the bride, including a fabulous vintage inspired Audrey Hepburn look which works fantastically well with both long and short hair.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”19167″ img_size=”full” css=”.vc_custom_1466185227764{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466184095264{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

You’ll discover how to create different curls and waves using both tongs and rollers – ever wondered about the difference between creating a corkscrew curl or a more beachy wave? You don’t need loads of different hairstyling tools, you just need a set of rollers and great technique!

 

You’ll work with some more high fashion bridal hairstyles, such as a high ballerina bun, using donuts and padding to develop that perfect shape, and also some really classic looks.

 

You’ll be shown slow, focused demonstrations on how to create each style, but you’re also free to experiment! We encourage our 4 day bridal hair course students to make each style their own and play around with everything they’re learning. The idea behind the course is not that you’ll go away having learned a set few styles, but that you feel confident in putting together any hairstyle.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”19170″ img_size=”full” css=”.vc_custom_1466185527999{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466184487262{margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

This month we were so impressed by one of our online bridal hair students, Chloe, that we just had to share some of her fabulous work with you!

We like to have something for everyone available on our online bridal hairstyling course, from classic bridal to relaxed and contemporary, with some gorgeous vintage looks and braids thrown in for good measure, but what we really love to see and always encourage is for our students to use the techniques shown to create their own, unique styles.

Chloe has certainly done just that, combining our expert securing techniques and some of the styles we teach with an edgy fashion twist using wiring.

We just love the creativity Chloe has shown in her work! Totally original.

Well done Chloe!

The Trial Run

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1457548018014{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 62px !important;}”]Don’t be tempted to leave the trial run until the last minute! It is in both yours and the bride’s best interest to have the trial at least 2 or 3 months before the wedding day.

You will probably find that bookings with brides tend to be a bit quieter in the winter months (Jan – March and into April), so keep yourself busy during your down-time and not overloaded during summer by filling your winter weekends with these all important trial runs.

Working with ‘day old’ and unconditioned hair will be easiest for you, but the last thing you want is the hair to be greasy, so discuss this with your bride in advance.

Ideally, your client will have clean, dry hair, washed the night before, but if your client tells you that she likes to wash her hair every day then let her – just ask her to forgo any deep conditioning treatments or 2-in-1 shampoos, as this will leave the hair too sleek and therefore un-manageable.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”16142″ img_size=”full” css=”.vc_custom_1457479700065{margin-top: 62px !important;margin-bottom: 62px !important;}”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1457478931858{margin-top: 62px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

Be Confident

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1457548299124{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 62px !important;}”]It may seem like your clients want you to have all the answers, but you’re only human, and if you’re a little unsure about what styles to suggest to your bride . . .

Don’t be afraid to say you don’t know!

You might feel a bit ‘on the spot’ if she asks you what your going to do with her hair, but just be confident and let her know that you need to get your hands in her hair first and have a play around before you decide together what is right for her.

Pam explains “From my experience as a bridal hair stylist, I have found that you can force most hair types into practically any style, but you’ll find chances are if you have to force it, it won’t suit her and it won’t want to stay in! Take your time and get to know your client a little bit for best results”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”15112″ img_size=”full” css=”.vc_custom_1457478684292{margin-top: 62px !important;margin-bottom: 62px !important;}”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1457482229782{margin-top: 62px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

Face Shapes

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1457548519235{margin-bottom: 62px !important;}”]If you’ve found yourself trying to memorise which hair styles suited which face shape. . .

Pam’s advice is “don’t worry about it!”

Most people are actually a combination of face shapes and even if they aren’t, there are so many other things you need to take into consideration when it comes to choosing the right hair style: the dress, the venue, even the height of the groom!

Just relax and talk to your client. Try a few styles out when you do the trial run – you’ll find the one that works.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”16121″ img_size=”full” css=”.vc_custom_1457479615567{margin-top: 62px !important;margin-bottom: 62px !important;}”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1457479735540{margin-top: 62px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

Get Your Bride’s Input

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1457479903197{margin-bottom: 62px !important;}”]The best way to find out what a client wants is to ask!

Advise your bride to start looking for styles that she loves in preparation for her trial run and ask her to let you in on her wedding inspiration too.

Pinterest mood boards are fun to make and very useful for a bridal hair stylist to get an idea of the whole wedding theme. Get your bride to send you pictures, or invite you to share her Pinterest albums.

Once you have an idea of the sort of styles she likes, and doesn’t like, have a go on your practice head or a friend in preparation for the trial run.

You can watch our online tutorials for in-depth guidance and hairstyle inspiration, so you’ll be really confident when you have to do it for real.

Always ask lots of questions about her dress, the venue, the bridesmaids dresses, her flowers – not just about hair! Be sure to find out if there’s anything she doesn’t like too – does she have big forehead she wants to hide? Is she self conscious about her ears?

Be sure to keep an eye of your bride’s body language, as this will tell you how she’s really feeling! Ask lots of open ended questions and assume there is something she doesn’t like, to end up with a happy client.

Natural Curls & Waves

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1481561671437{margin-bottom: 62px !important;}”]Pam says “Unless your client has really curly hair – like mine, or curlier – it is probably best to ask her not to straighten her hair before you arrive, as you will have to see the hair in its natural state so you know just what you need to do.”

If you want to add some height and oomph into the hair with heated rollers, you should start the styling process working with the natural shape and texture of the hair rather than going from poker straight and flat.

If you do find the hair needs straightening to get it glossy and shiny, you can always straighten it when you arrive and then re-curl with your tongs or straighteners before creating your fabulous hair style.

Work With A Mirror

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1457480841991{margin-bottom: 62px !important;}”]Don’t try to second guess! Work with a mirror in front of your client and always involve her in the styling process.

To make sure you give your client the best hair she’s ever had, it is the job of a bridal hair stylist to listen to her input. Try asking these questions, and add some of your own:

Where does she like to part her hair? Would she be happy trying the parting in different positions? Would she like width at the sides of the hair or would she prefer it sleek and tight back? Does the hair above her ears look better going back and down or up and back? How does she like her fringe – forward and sweeping over, to one side, or back with height?

If you ask for her input she will feel more relaxed, and between you, you’ll get the perfect style![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”15108″ img_size=”full” css=”.vc_custom_1457481408834{margin-top: 62px !important;margin-bottom: 62px !important;}”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1457480900634{margin-top: 62px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

Sleek or Tousled?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1481561795404{margin-bottom: 62px !important;}”]Your client might have a very particular idea of what style she wants in her head, but it’s still worth trying a few different looks on the trial run. She may be surprised at what she falls in love with!

If your bride can’t decide what style she would like to have on the big day, it is possible for her to have both. She can have her cake and eat it! After all – she’s the bride…

If your client asks for a smooth sleek backcombed style, you’ll still need to curl the hair, so try a quick soft relaxed style first so she can see what it looks like. A very popular this year is the “I woke up this gorgeous” effortless beauty look, but a lot goes into getting these styles just right and once you’ve created a smooth and sleek backcombed style, it’s practically impossible to get the soft curl back again if she decides she doesn’t like it.

Come along to one of our bridal hair courses or sign up to our online tutorials to get confident with all the different types of waves and curls: soft beachy wave, soft, relaxed corkscrew looking curls etc…

Braids are a must have too! Make sure you’re happy with at least 2 or 3 braiding techniques and practice incorporating them into your soft relaxed looking styles. Not sure on these? Join us for our 1 day braiding course![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”17246″ img_size=”full” css=”.vc_custom_1457482566974{margin-top: 62px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”17184″ img_size=”full” css=”.vc_custom_1457482598359{margin-bottom: 62px !important;}”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1457481570674{margin-top: 62px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

Keep Detailed Notes

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1457481874247{margin-bottom: 62px !important;}”]Once you’ve found the perfect style, you will need to keep a record of it so you can recreate it perfectly on the wedding day. Here’s how:

  1. Taking photos is great so you can see how the finished style looks, but you need to remember exactly how you achieved that look…
  2. You’ll need to remember all the little things that you did to tailor make this style to make it perfect, so take notes! Pam says “I find it invaluable to write the detail down – how did I curl the hair, did I use a reverse wind or reverse wind with a twist? Tongs, straighteners or heated rollers? What products did I use? Does she like her ears covered to not? How does she like her fringe, her parting the height on the crown? There are so may thing to remember!

It will make your job as a bridal hair stylist so much easier on the wedding day if you know exactly what you have to do to achieve the perfect style, so write everything down in our specially designed wedding hair and makeup planners.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

We don’t mean to brag (OK, OK, we definitely DO mean to brag…), but our online hair course students are pretty awesome!

There’s over 1500 minutes of video tutorials to get through on our 6 and 12 month online hair course memberships, so every student course submission we get through is a little different. As with any creative venture, hairstyling is as unique to the individual hairstylist as a painting might be to an artist and we just love seeing everyone’s unique flare and what they choose to do with it.

Now that we’ve upgraded our online hairstyling course to include AQA UAS Certificate upon completion, our Create Beautiful Hair students are going off to do bigger and better things than ever before and it’s so exciting to see you flourish.

To kick 2016 off to a running start, we just had to share these amazing hairstyles created by one of our international online students, Vania…

This stunning up ‘do is an excellent example of how to incorporate an elegant rope twist into a classic bun for a more contemporary and unique feel. A perfect choice for a summer or destination bride who has opted for a Grecian style dress, to flatter beautiful bone structure and keep her cool on a hot wedding day!

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”17496″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1452118657812{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

The high ballerina bun is a must have style in any hairstylists repetoire, but sometimes without a few little extra touches, they can be quite severe. Here, Vania has chosen to give a little lift at the front to soften the edges, and the braid wrapped around the base of the bun gives that perfect final touch, without taking away from the main bulk!

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”17497″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1452118844775{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

This is a wonderful use of pin-curls and is a great style for brides with naturally thick, curly hair. Curly hair can be quite unruly and difficult to work with if you haven’t got your technique quite right, but here, Vania has used our online tutorials to the best of her and her model’s advantage! A fabulous style, full of volume and texture.

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”17498″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1452119066461{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

Creating a beautiful hairstyle is about so much more than putting the hair up correctly (although this is, of course, important too!) – it’s also about helping your client find a style that is perfect for them. Here, Vania has chosen a chic, vintage inspired style that helps bring out all of her model’s gorgeous features, and fits in just right with her makeup and look.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”17495″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1452119315729{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

A glamourous half up half down do never fails to impress, particularly if your client is wanting to show off her hair length or wear extensions on her big day. Here, Vania has created a gorgeous, relaxed curl for a lovely, bouncy finish and has used Pam’s ‘up and over’ technique to secure the twist at the back firmly, without the need for tons of grips and discomfort!
