Bridal Hair & Makeup Trends to Watch Out For (ft. Hustle & Blow!)

There’s nothing we love more than seeing a bride’s vision come together. Whether we’re putting the final touches on her bouquet or we’re seeing an I&B bride’s pictures for the very first time, that moment where everything falls into place always feels so special. We’re just so lucky to be a part of making the magic happen! 


Speaking of making magic happen… do you recognize these ladies? I know, I know… they’re total model material! This Goddess Gang is the crew from Hustle & Blow Dry Bar, a local dry bar just off of Abercorn catering to all your bridal beauty needs. These ladies are in the business of making you feel fabulous, and let me tell you: business is good. 


Inspired by our stylish friends at Hustle & Blow, this week’s blog post brings you some of 2018’s hottest bridal trends… and some looks that you can even expect to see moving into 2019! 

Sparkle like Markle

May has long since come and gone, but who could forget all the glitz and glam of the most recent royal wedding? While there may have been some mixed feelings about Meghan’s choice of attire for the evening (the I&B team was especially divided on the matter), there’s no denying that Meghan made one beautiful-- not to mention trendy-- bride. 


Her simple updo and conservative makeup placed all the focus on her natural beauty. And come on, with a smile that radiant, can you blame her? Make a royal statement on your wedding day by keeping things light and airy. Let those freckles peek through beneath your foundation! A neutral eye is best paired with a pop of pink for your lipstick. You could easily glam this look up by smoking out the eye makeup and adding some lashes, if that’s more your style! 


Highlighter on Fleek


This bridal trend shows no signs of slowing down any time soon! Dewy skin is in. Don’t be afraid to boost your bridal glow with a little highlighter! Just bear in mind that you don’t want to look like an oil slick in your pictures, so it’s all about balance. Avoid products with big sparkles and stick to a more subtle cream or fine powder highlight. Play with tones to see which shade matches your skin JUST right! 

High Drama Mama

So far, we’ve kept things sweet and simple, but we see you, glam brides. Your wedding day is the perfect time to rock that high-drama look you’ve been coveting! Balance a bold smokey eye with a neutral lip, or layer on the lashes and bust out that hot pink lip you love so much. Don’t worry about anything being “too much.” We assure you-- there’s no such thing as being too much on your wedding day. 


Speaking of drama…


Who says it all has to be about your makeup? Get your hair in on the action! Fanciful braids are hitting the Spring 2019 bridal runway, and we’re obsessed. Whether you want a full fishtail or just a few detail plaits woven in, we love the idea of adding a little texture to your wedding day look. Throw some blooms to match your bouquet in and you’re set!

Pretty in a Ponytail

Updos don’t have to be all about the elegant chignon. Why not rock of 2019’s hottest upcoming bridal trends? Ponytails are so versatile; you can do them high and you can do them low. You can curl your hair for added texture or keep things sleek and sexy. You can even tie a length of ribbon around it or add in some sparkly clips! The possibilities are truly endless.
