How To Wear The Key Hair Trends On Your Wedding Day

Anna Sorbie, Bridal Hair And Beauty Specialist, Explains How To Wear The Key A/W16 Hair Trends On Your Wedding Day

Hair accessories were huge at Fashion Week A/W16, with embellished hair proving to be a key beauty trend of the new season. Anna Sorbie, bridal hair and beauty specialist, reveals how to take this trend for hair adornments from the catwalk to the aisle.

Embellishment trend:


As seen at: Rodarte A/W16
On the catwalk: Dreamy colourful floral crowns.
Up the aisle: The Sophia, by Anna Sorbie Headwear.
The style: This type of embellishment translates beautifully in to a bridal style. Instead of copying the look wholeheartedly, be inspired and opt for a floral-effect headpiece, such as The Sophia, a multi-use Hair Vine, with Crystal, Sterling Silver and Freshwater Pearls, which looks beautiful woven through the hair.
Pair with: a textured side braid.
Wear with: This look is delicately dishevelled, slightly bohemian and uber-romantic, so works perfectly against a vintage camisole style dress, with hints of lace.

Embellishment trend:

Punk romance

As seen at: Alexander McQueen A/W16
On the catwalk: Hair pulled up randomly and adorned with OTT metallic floral hair-pins and bejewelled brooches.
Up the aisle: The Stella, by Anna Sorbie Headwear
The style: Hair Vine in Sterling Silver with Freshwater Pearls. This statement piece is bold, eye-catching and beautiful, just like those seen at the McQueen show. For an even bolder look, pair with a statement comb.
Pair with: With such statement pieces, hair should be kept simple. A long loose bob, blow-dried smooth and finished with a light finishing oil is the perfect way to showcase this style of embellishment.
Wear with: a fuss-free neckline and simple corset style ensures that all eyes are on the hairpieces.

Embellishment trend:


As seen at:
Peter Pilotto A/W16
On the catwalk: Hair chokers worn as hairbands, sewn in to the hair.
Up the aisle: The Kate, by Anna Sorbie Headwear
The style: A multi-use Hair Vine with Crystals and Sterling Silver.
Pair with: Like those seen at Peter Pilotto, this headpiece is multi-functional: it can be worn as a tiara, headband or halo. To recreate this trend, wear as a headband, over a loose vintage wave style.
Wear with: This subtly beautiful and simple look goes with almost any style of dress, however as with this type of headpiece most of the detailing is worn at the back of the head, a backless dress or one with lots of intricate detailing down the back works particularly well, and will look amazing as the bride walks down the aisle.
