There is always a place for minimalist bridal hair and this season brings a modern twist to the classic chignon. Middle parts with lived in texture brings a fresh modern feel to this effortless look, that is perfect for the "non-bridal up-do".

Bridal Hair Trends Spring 2017

Get ready to bear those shoulders! The strapless gown now has some serious competition with off the shoulder gowns taking over Spring 2017 runways. Plunging necklines and oversized bows were also wedding dress trends seen on ready-to-wear runways. As any designers focused on bold and elegant designs this season ideal for the modern bride, bridal beauty took a soft and natural approach with effortless hair and minimal makeup featured through the Bridal Market 2017 shows.

Bridal Hair Inspiration: Accessories

Bridal hair accessories are extremely popular right now with many online stores and Esty designers making trendy wearable and affordable hair accessories. Adding the right embellishment to your hair will often showcase intricate detailing in the hairstyle and can complement other features of your gown and overall look. I highly recommend all my brunette brides to consider adding hair accessories to their bridal hair, as darker hair often does not show fine detail in photos. By adding an accessory you will add contrast and highlight the detail in the hair design.

These are some of my favourite bridal hair embellishments for 2015...
