Best 5 Bridal Hairstyles of 2018

Getting married in 2018? Congratulations, we are excited for you! At Frederick James Salon we are passionate about creating gorgeous, trending bridal hairstyles. The top bridal hairstyles this year are relaxed but exquisite and luxurious yet simple. Read on for the best 5 bridal hairstyles of 2018.


Low updos

Tight, high updos are out, and relaxed, low updos are in. From chignons to low buns, these updos are modern chic personified. Use your natural wave or add texture for another layer of style. Smaller side swept braids add romance and flatter any profile. These modern updos aren’t overdone or overwhelming, despite their intricacy. Low updos will be stunning for any length. If you’d prefer a fuller look, ask your hairstylist about adding extensions to your hair.


Half up do

Swept up and secured with glittering accessories or boho braids, half up dos are the showstopper for this year. Start by using texturizing product that will make it easier to keep hair in place. Twist long bangs back and let loose curls free for a soft, romantic look. Use a combination of braid, twists, and antique pins for a truly personalized look.



This year we are seeing brides with loose, textured braids for a romantic and carefree look. Fishtail braids are especially popular and are stunning on half updos. Go traditional with a bridal braid and show off an open-backed gown. Braids are also wonderful for keeping your hair under control during an outdoor wedding.


Old school: Romantic waves and Hollywood curls

Nothing emanates class like voluminous Hollywood curls. Go old-school and use hot rollers or a curling iron for large ringlets. Use your natural texture and bring classic beauty back with big bouncy waves. Gorgeous, classy and full, pin waves are a beautiful style as well. Let our stylists at Frederick James Salon help you achieve the perfect curls on your big day.



This year accessories are doing double duty. An heirloom hair pin is just the thing to set off the jeweled details on your dress and keep your veil in just the right place. Or, a crown of flowers to complete your romantic, woodland vibe while also allowing your veil to float perfectly down your back.
