Scottish hair gurus chat with Nicole Conner to tell brides what style they’d create to match your dress and vibe

Samantha Farrow Hairstylist’s carefree up do will be a hit with bohemian brides

“I loved creating this soft, earthy look. It is very boho-chic and fits in well with a more relaxed wedding theme,” hairstylist Samantha tells us. “I created it by loosely waving all the hair, then backcombing at the crown to give some volume. I intertwined the waves, letting them go in their own direction, then pulled out loose strands of hair around the face and at the back. A dried flower crown finished the look beautifully.”

This curled style by Colleen Davidson is a must-have for glamorous brides

“A classic half-up, half-down style is beautiful and effortless, while remaining youthful and fun. It’s one of my favourite styles to do on my brides,” says Colleen. “I used tongs to curl, then pinned the waves for hold. I then added texture powder and teased the roots to create lift.”

“I think this style complements a sleek, lace gown as it’s not too formal and the waves mimic the fabric of the gown and add texture and interest. This sort of style works equally well with or without a veil.”

Honey and Violet Weddings have perfected this Gatsby-inspired look

“At Honey and Violet Weddings, our signature look is ‘vintage glam’, so this 1920s-inspired look is right up our street: a soft wave finished off with a jewelled leaf slide and a deep red lip,” says hairstylist Lisa Blishaa. “A vintage style needs a classic set for a strong foundation and hold. We started with a large pin curl set, then teased out the hair and slicked it back behind the ear for a smooth Hollywood feel.”

This chic chignon by The Bride to Be is fit for a queen

“This style was created for one of my brides who was looking for a soft but elegant do,” explains stylist Maureen Crolla. “Working with her shoulder-length tresses, I applied Kerastase Elixir Ultime serum to give the hair a silky feel, then added WoW Raise the Root to begin styling.

“I wound sections of the hair around my Jose Eber curling irons to create the beautiful twists. I also  secured a small filler at the nape for extra volume. I added a sprig of gypsophila to complete this eye-catching regal look.”

Verdi Femme Hair and Beauty’s soft, curled low bun is a dream

“Soft, romantic bridal looks are among my favourite styles at the moment,” says Verdi Femme Hair and Beauty’s Annette Green. “I used a medium-sized tong for this style, taking vertical sections and working from the root. I used a texture powder at the root, then pinned all sections away from the face, leaving a few soft tendrils to frame it.”
