Hair inspiration: for cool, unconventional brides

Unconventional brides tend to think outside the box when it comes to their big day. Here's our pick of some gorgeous, non-traditional hair styles - just for you.

Unconventional brides have to look a bit harder for what they want sometimes. Whether that's a certain bouquet, bridesmaids dresses, or even cake style. Going against the normal flow of things isn't a chore, but when you're faced with the same choices day in day out, it can feel like it.

Makeup and hair are a big part of how you look and feel on your wedding day. And an unconventional bride will most certainly not want the same as everyone else.

Here are some of our favourite non-traditional hair styles for those who want something a little different.

A play on the idea of a classic French twist, but more edgy which makes it perfect for unconventional brides. We can just imagine a little birdcage veil or some tiny flowers dotted in.

Depending on the shade of your dress, or flowers you could easily tweak this idea to suit your colour scheme. A subtle hint of blush pink or peach would look beautiful in blonde hair.

Intricate Braids

For someone who either had a very simple, structured dress or alternatively a very detailed fabric, this could be a winner.



Would you consider any of these ideas for your big day?
