Messy updos are very popular with brides, and great for weddings with a relaxed, rustic theme. The messy bohemian bridal hair look is all about looking like you've not tried too hard. It shows off the colour and texture in your hair and makes full use of your hair's length and volume. If your hair is short, hair extensions or padding can be added to create a bigger messy updo.

The half up half down hairstyle is also very popular with brides and gives you a loose romantic look whilst still keeping your hair off your face. Half up half down hairstyles are great for those with medium/long hair and offers something different to how you usually wear your hair whilst still keeping some hair around your shoulders. You can choose whether to have a half up half down style with loove waves, curls and whether the top half is taken back with twists, braids, or simply pinned back.
Classic bridal updos and sleek bridal hairstyles are perfect for brides who want to go for the classic bridal look, with hair swept back neatly. This look is for brides who want their hair to look neat and elegant, great for those with a vintage wedding theme. Rather than a messy boho appearance, the hair will be smooth and shiny with hair pinned in place in an organised fashion.
Natural bridal makeup is perfect for brides who want to enhance their natural features without looking like they have much makeup on. Natural colours will be used to accentuate the bride's features adding a radiance to the eyes, skin, lips and cheeks giving a 'barely there' makeup appearance with a beautiful natural glow.

This makeup look is great for brides wanting to make a statement without going too far out of their comfort zone.
