We’re loving the mini move towards ‘down’ styles at the moment. George Clooney’s new bride Amal Alamuddin showed us how it’s done with her lustrous locks on show and topped with a veil for their big day.


If your hair is one of your best features, show it off with soft glamorous waves, cascading boho curls, polished retro waves, half up/half down styles or high-impact oversized curls. Style to the side to show off a bodice detail, accessorise with pretty wrapped or pinned headpieces for a modern-vintage look or stay classic with a traditional veil. For a beautiful result that lasts through to the reception, leave your do to the professionals as humidity, wind and rain can compromise even the most magnificent mane. We asked hair stylist Sue Black for a few tips…

Perfect your Prep

A fresh cut, colour and shine treatment will show off your greatest asset to its best advantage. “It is important that long hair always has freshly trimmed ends. This minimises frizzies and allows hair to be brushed out with ease,” says Sue.

“Headpieces can still be worn when the hair is down, although securely anchoring them into the hair is the challenge, especially if they are heavy,” notes Sue, who adores Viktoria Novak. “Floral head wreaths simply sit on the top of the head and also look stunning.”

Top Tip

Don’t forget to have your chosen veil or accessory secured by a pro. “Having a professional hair stylist means you won’t have the embarrassment  of your veil or headpiece falling out as you walk down the aisle,” says Sue. “And for the DIY ladies out there, yes this happens all the time!”
