Wedding Season Hair and Makeup Trends 2016/2017

Being in the hair and makeup industry (or beauty industry) for some years now, I defiantly see trends come and go, and this is the same with brides hair and makeup.

I am finding in the 2016 and into the 2017 wedding season we are going to be seeing more hair up rather than hair down.  Brides and bridesmaids are finding in the hot weather we have been having, getting your hair up off your neck really is helping keeping you cool.  

Braids are still very much in season, however, I am finding now its pulled out braids and a little more rustic and messy looking.  Low or off to the side messy buns are still in fashion, with the emphasis on casual.  Nothing is pulled back off the face, its soft and beautiful.  

Veils are still on trend, with more brides deciding to use beautiful clips alongside a veil as well.  Also, bridesmaids are tending to have clips for their hair as well.  Sometimes the same clips as the brides.

As for makeup, I am finding more and more brides are wanting soft, natural looks.  Neutral tones, mixed with nude or soft rose pink lipsticks.  Glowing skin is a big must for all brides, along with beautiful rosy cheeks.  Contouring is soft and subtle, and works with the glowing skin.

Brows are strong this wedding season, well groomed fuller, darker brows are on trend this wedding season.  

Brides are still wearing faux lashes, but are choosing to have 3/4 strip lashes rather than full lashes.

Always remember though, work with your amazing features to make sure they glow on your big day.
