Forget the dress—what about your hair?!

Got a special occasion coming up? A wedding, perhaps? If you’re a bride, your hair needs to be your crowning glory–a beautiful silhouette that everyone will ooh and ahh over and will look great in photos years from now. If you’re a bridesmaid–well, let’s just say you probably want the attention on your hair, rather than on that bridesmaid dress the brides swears you can wear again…

Enter Marek Hartwig, owner of Marek Bridal and an Artistic Director at Frank Gironda Salon & Day Spa in Wheaton, IL. According to Hartwig, this season’s wedding palette consists of texture, texture, texture. Here are three basic looks that will be trendy…

MODERN CLASSIC The days of the severe, slicked bun are gone. Soft, moldable textures are here to stay. A classic look does not have to be a boring look. Hair should be constructed well, but be air and have movement.






VINTAGE INSPIRED Finger-waves are a fitting homage to the Golden Era of Hollywood, a polished style and very romantic. Let the waves transcend into a more relaxed texture, keeping it fresh. Use a sparkly headband to balance the look and portray a true vintage vibe.

HIGH FASHION It’s all about shape! A strong geometric silhouette is softened with  texture; micro-crimping is a great way to achieve this.
While high-fashion, this style still exudes elegance.
