Relaxed, romantic wedding day locks with a touch of glamour – that's the look of the wedding season to come. Don’t get us wrong – the boho look is still very much a thing. It’s just that a slightly more refined finish has made its way into the bridal mix, and it comes with polish.
Hair and makeup artist Lisa Matson – who created the five looks shown here – says when it comes to deciding on your big-day hair style it pays to take a step back before moving forward on any looks. “Where are you getting married? What will you be wearing?” asks Lisa. “Once you’ve confirmed the style of your day, then look at the finer style details like hair and accessories.”

“This exquisite style is perfect for hair that sits just below the shoulder,” says Jo Plant of Exile Hair Design in Auckland. “Very short hair would make this tricky to achieve: a skilled stylist – and perhaps hair extensions – would be essential, albeit worth it. Long-haired brides would find their final look might have a little more volume than pictured above, but it would still be beautifully elegant,” she says. For this ’do, Lisa curled the hair from mid-lengths down, and began a classic chignon by pulling away side sections and creating a low bun, before pinning sections into the bun to create the desired shape.
