Slick Back

Slicked Back Hair

Many celebrities and influencers are channeling slick back hairstyles, which show off the contours of your face perfectly on your big day and pair well with an off-the-shoulder or long-sleeved lace wedding dress, says Murat Evin, The London School of Make-Up. "This new bride hair trend will be a hit with quirky brides looking to add an edge to the traditional bridal image. What’s great about this look is it’s minimalistic and effortless, meaning less hassle, quick results and no danger of frizz or drastic bridal hair mistakes leading up to, or on the big day."

"More and more often we are seeing brides embrace the quirky and non-traditional flower and chain crowns," says Caleb Backe of Maple Holistics. "Look for this trend to pick up in 2018 as women continue to embrace individuality and new in favor of traditional."



Veils are making a comeback, according to Brittany Finkle of Happily Ever Borrowed. "We continue to see brides interested in renting long, cathedral length veils that are very detailed and ornate."

Broach in hair

Incorporating Family Heirlooms

Many brides will be incorporating something borrowed and even something blue in the the bride’s hair, says Jenn-Tori Wiley, a Master Stylist and Loft Owner at Salon Lofts new River North location. Brides will integrate something special or sentimental in their looks this year, such as a broach from a grandmother, in her hairstyle.

Loosely pinned updo

Bridal hair in 2018 is all about being soft, whimsical, and romantic, says Brittany Brudzinski of Maxine Salon. "The boho chic bride is back, bringing beach waves and loosely pinned updos. This effortless look paired with beautiful accessories like dainty bows and flower crowns will be walking down aisles in 2018."


Romantic Twists

This look will be “super hot,” says Wiley, because it is a soft look while still pulling your hair away from your face.

Short dos

Short Dos

"Since the bob is the current 'it' haircut, I see lots of brides wearing their short hair down with either finger waves or pin curls," says Kashmir Asvaraksh of Hair by Kashmir. "Chin length bouncy waves will be very in as well, with a nod to the 1950s."
