Emily from Peroxidefox brings us her thoughts on bridal hair for Spring/Summer 2015, inspired by Free People.
Bridal hair has always been a source of inspiration for my hair styling. The evolution of big day styles work in parallel with runway trends, adjusting them and romanticizing them until they’re perfect for the bride-to-be.
Long, languid lengths were a big part of many Spring/Summer collections, and bridal hair has followed suit. But this development seems a big shift from the traditional adorned updos and perfect curls, and for some, loose hair on one’s wedding day seems to casual for such an important event.
Free People’s recently released bridal collection photos are a beautiful example of how loose hair can still retain a glamorous feel. Keeping a style looking effortless yet put together at the same time is an art, and they’ve certainly perfected it.

Barely there bends, piece-y layers, and natural colouring really make this style, but don’t be fooled by its apparent simplicity. In some ways, effortless hairstyles require more work than your regular bridal updo. There isn’t any exact formula, and each styling experience is different. You work with the hair, enhancing it, instead of manipulating it into something completely different to it’s natural state.
Whether engaged or not, bridal hair is an important source of inspiration for your summer styles, and they’re a great way to make catwalk trends more accessible and transitional to us mere mortals. So next time you’re stuck for ideas, you might want to check the catalog.
