Bride Style Feature: Lovely Locks!

One of our favorite things to do here at the shop is to sort through all of the fabulous wedding photos we get every day. Blogger-extraordinaire (and author--hey guys!!) Paige would argue that the best part is seeing how the bride’s final look all came together! We love having the opportunity to help our brides along the way to find their perfect gown and accessories, but man, hair and makeup is just the icing on the cake! 

Today, we’d like to take a look back through some of our favorite bridal hairstyles throughout the years. 

The road to wedding-ready hair is filled with lots of treatments, dye, and heat application. After all that stress, your hair can sometimes start to get a little sad. Fear not, future brides! We’ve got a suggestion for an all natural-shampoo that will help breath some life back into those lovely locks of yours! 

We were recently approached by Maple Holistics to test their Tea Tree Shampoo, and boy, were we impressed! We just couldn’t stop touching Nicole’s fabulous hair after she tested it out. 

Nicole writes: “The shampoo is silky, fresh and reviving. And boyfriend approved...!!!! After washing my hair I got compliments later in the day that my hair smelled incredible. The scent is a touch minty and smells delicious! I love that the shampoo is all natural. It moisturized my scalp while giving my hair a very soft and silky feel. I would highly recommend this shampoo to anybody!!” 

I mean, with hair that fabulous, who can argue with her? Nab your free sample of the Maple Holistics Tea Tree Shampoo here and let us know what you think! 

Once you’ve got your hair-care routine down, all that’s left to do is figure out your style for the big day. Here are a few of our favorite looks!

Josephine looked simply gorgeous with her long and flowing locks styled by Royal Hair and Makeup. We love the classic simplicity of this style; who doesn't wanna look like a mermaid bombshell on their big day? When paired with a flowing veil, this look really brings the wow factor! 

Lauren was the quintessential sweet southern bride, and this chic updo (styled by Beyond Beautiful by Bobby) was the perfect compliment to her bridal look! We love that we get a peek at those epic earrings, and her face is framed perfectly by a few stray wisps. This is the perfect style for brides who intend to dance all night--without risking their fancy new 'do! 

How romantic and elegant does Jessica look in this sideswept updo? If you love florals but aren't sure if a flower crown is the right choice for you, you can always add a few blooms to your bun!

Stephanie was the epitome of the rock'n'roll bride on her big day, and we think she totally nailed it. This ultra-mod coiffe, styled by Royal Hair and Makeup, had us feeling like we were defying gravity!

Looking to add some dimension and texture to your style? I&B bride Steff made the ultimate hair statement and rocked this epic wrap-around braid on her wedding day. Can you imagine how awesome this would be when paired with a birdcage veil?
