The relaxed looked has returned for 2018. Say goodbye to elaborate up-do’s and hairspray, and hello to loose up-do’s and natural waves. You will also see more brides wearing their hair down as they walk down the aisle this year.  This trend is easy, beautiful, and much healthier for your locks.

2018’s effortless trend also makes way for the return of braids and natural head pieces.  Flowers and baby’s breath are a beautiful way that brides are choosing to accessorize their style with natural elegance.

No need to spends hours applying makeup for your wedding this year.  In fact, for 2018, less is more.  Soft pink lips, and natural eye shadows are more desirable.  If you prefer to make a statement, smoky eyes are still the way to go.  No need to be too elaborate, just a simple dramatization in the corners will do.  Also, toss the blush and apply bronzer instead on your cheeks, chin, and forehead to give a sun-kissed glow and a smooth finish.  Finally, keep the brows full to frame your face.  Over-plucked thin brows are no longer a must.

 

 

Although hair and makeup trends for 2018 welcome a more natural tone, keep in mind that you still want enough style and color to appear flattering in your wedding photos.  Try to avoid colors and styles that will make you look washed-out and up-kept.  Still take time with your look, even though the goal is to appear effortless.  You will be pleased with the results!
