Inspo for the non-traditional bride.

Wedding hairstyle inspiration can come from anywhere. These days, modern brides aren’t just scooping out bridal sites and glossies for wedding hair ideas. Instead, they’re drawing inspiration for unconventional looks from the red carpet and even from the high-fashion runway. Below, we’ve collected three stand-out hairstyles from the runway that also happen to be perfect as out-of-the-ordinary bridal styles. Read on to get inspired:

Non-Traditional Bridal Styles for The Bridal Party

1. Unconventional Hair Idea for The Bride

If you’re planning on having a wedding in a space inspired by Middle Ages Gothic architecture, go for a dark romantic look. On the other hand, if you just want an udpo and makeup combo that doesn’t scream girly, this slightly disheveled style with face-framing bangs is the perfect match. To create the look, curl your hair with a 1/2″ barrel curling iron for big, loose curls. After allowing your curls to cool, finger-comb your hair to separate then gather hair into an undone low bun. Set your style with TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Flexible Finish Hairspray.

2. Unconventional Style for Mother of the Bride

Or maybe you’re having a super low-key wedding ceremony with just the parents? One look we love for Moms is fresh bob cut a.k.a a super simple hairstyle that’ll complement your casual wedding. The day before the wedding, wash your hair with TREsemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and TRESemme Keratin Smooth Conditioner to ensure that the style will stay sleek, straight and smooth throughout the ceremony and the reception. Spray your hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray for protection, then flat iron it flat. Finish off your style by setting your hairstyle with Dove Style + Care Extra Hold Hairspray.

3. Unconventional Bridesmaids Hairstyle

This hairstyle is ideal for a French-inspired wedding. The modern spin on the French roll updo will look gorgeous against lace fabrics and feminine pastels. Got a bridal party that loves a D.I.Y hairstyle? This look is simple to create and not to mention, budget-friendly, too!

To get the look, wash your hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner (we like Bed Head by TIGI Fully Loaded Massive Volume Shampoo and Bed Head by TIGI Epic Volume Conditioner), then blow-dry. Section off and clip away your bangs as you focus on the back. Create a high ponytail, that you fasten into a bun using hair pins. Unclip the bangs and swoop to the side. Wrap the ends of your hair around the base of the bun and pin your hair in place.
