Trend Alert! This week, professional hair & makeup artist, Madeleine Page, gives us her top 5 hair & makeup trends for 2015/16 brides! If you're still trying to decide how you want your hair or are thinking of something a little bit different for your makeup, then you need to read this fantastic article by Madeleine, complete with gorgeous images of each trending style.
1. Flowers in Her Hair
While it's still beautiful to have big blooms adorning your hairstyle, smaller flowers like gypsophila are making a comeback (as seen at Marchesa Bridal this year). Adding a sprig or two will add a soft, romantic touch to your look.
2. Chic Chignon
The chignon is the most versatile hairstyle and will suit almost any Bride (or Mother of the Bride, or Bridesmaid for that matter!). There are so many versions of this style that it's impossible to go wrong! Wear it centered and smooth for a formal look, or swept to the side and textured for something a little more soft.
3. Wine Stained Lips
This is an easy way to bring some colour into your bridal look, especially for those not so keen on red lips normally. Also great because it requires less maintenance than a normal coloured lippy. A subtle 'just bitten' look, this trend is perfect for a boho or beach wedding.
4. Girl with the Golden Braids
A trend that has been around for a while, braids are a great detail to incorporate into your look to add some interest and texture. 2015 will see Brides steering away from small braids and wearing a more ‘blown out’ braid. Wear 'em big, crowned or fishtailed, they're here to stay this year.
5. Metallic Wash
If the tried and true natural and neutral eye makeup look just isn't for you, then try a lick of something metallic on your peepers. This trend is best suited to evening weddings, and for a bride with a more modern edge. Your makeup artist will be able to recommend a shade that is complimentary to your own eye colour to make your eyes really stand out. Keep it feeling wedding-like by pairing it with fresh, glowing skin and a nude lip.
