Summer Bridal Hair: Understated Hairstyles for the Modern Bride

Sometimes less is more.

If you have planned a wedding in the last few years (or semi-planned one on a secret Pinterest board – ahem), then you know that the bridal industry is quickly evolving. While many parts of the wedding are still classic and pretty traditional, a lot of brides are opting for modern alternatives. As we approach the season of weddings, we thought it was time to take note of some understated summer bridal hair ideas. The modern bride has done away with crunchy updos of weddings past and is instead opting for something a little more laidback.

Understated Summer Bridal Hair Ideas

Gone are the days when it takes a full can of hairspray to set a bride’s hair before she walks down the aisle. Today’s bride is all about a more natural and casual look – even if she’s all done up. Not everyone is opting for a full-on bohemian style. But even the more classic looks are more laidback than they’ve ever been!

Upgrade a classic wedding style with a modern touch.

The key to achieving a look that is undone while still feeling done up is all in the styling. You’re going to want to prep your stylist with some inspiration images. We love each of these styles pictured here. If you’re more traditional you can opt for an updo with a modern headband. If you’re looking for something a bit more understated, you can go for a loose beachy style.

No matter which style you choose, bring a bottle of TRESemmé Compressed Mico Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1 to the venue. Finishing off your look with this hairspray will give your style hold without that dreaded crunch. And it will add some tousled texture to your look!
