The reason why we are always looking forward to runway shows is that they always serve as a huge source of inspiration for us both beauty and fashion wise, providing us with fresh ideas for accessorizing our looks, styling our hair and learning new makeup application techniques. The latest Bridal Fashion Week Spring 2016 enchanted us unveiling so many modern, romantic and elegant bridal gowns and wedding looks, including the elegant white pantsuit we saw at Carolina Herrera that is a fresh and unique alternative to the classic wedding dress. However, the runway shows also bought an array of pretty bridal beauty looks for spring 2016 that you can copy not only for your big day, but also for other special events. Below, we have rounded up the most inspiring bridal hairstyles and makeup looks from Spring 2016 Bridal Fashion Week runway shows!
1. Floral Embellished Loose Side Chignon At Carolina Herrera
We fell in love with the Carolina Herrerea bridal spring 2016 collection at first sight, as the models walked down the runway looking so romantic and seductive at the same time. While the bridal dresses were the focus of the show, no less importance was given to the hair and makeup choices that beautifully complemented each other making the models’ looks simply picture perfect. The hair was styled into a loose side chignon at the nape with the deep side parting and the floral embellishments giving a whimsical edge to the overall ‘do, while the makeup was all into a soft and ethereal style with the powdery pink tint added to the lips and the soft pink blush accentuating the cheekbones.
2. ‘40s Wavy Hair At Galia Lahav
If you are one of those brides-to-be looking for unique and glam beauty ideas, this ‘40s wavy hairstyle is exactly for you! It’s effortless and natural with a simple center part, while those floral clips provide enough glitz and glam to the look. Best of all, if you have naturally curly hair, you just need to wash and go, while those with straight hair should curl it, gently teasing the hair to add volume to the do’. The makeup features sultry smokey eyes finished off with the sweet berry lipstick applied just to the center of the lips for the Geisha edge. While the lip makeup might not be the traditional style many of you might want to try, the lipstick color is just ideal for adding sensuality to your pout.
3. Boho Waves With Pearl Headband At Jenny Packham
The latest beauty trends are more about natural and simplistic looks and the lovely bohemian wavy hairstyles are among the coolest bridal ‘dos you can try this year. It’s an effortlessly chic style perfect for various occasions, including simple casual days, but when you add a lovely pearl headband to it, you are ready to walk the aisle looking like a real princess. Keep your makeup as natural as your hair is, placing the focus on the healthy complexion spiced up with apricot lips.
4. Bohemian Braids and Knots At Houghton
If you want to take your boho-chic bridal look to a whole new level, add some random hair knots and tiny braids to your ‘do. In contrast to this effortless hairstyle, at Houghton the models wore quite an edgy makeup with lots of white face powder added to the forehead and the bridge of the nose, while the rest of the face was kept natural and glowing with subtle touches of bronze used to contour the face.
5. Sleek Side Bun At Pamella Roland
Despite the popularity of certain up and coming bridal beauty trends, classic and elegant looks are always go-to options for adding a big dose of femininity and sophistication to your appearance. This side-parted sleek low bun spotted at Pamella Roland is the perfect fit for brides with long hair, who want to make sure they look flawless on their big day without making a mistake. Add a soft rose blush color to your cheeks, black eyeliner and false eyelashes for a flirty look and you are ready to win your beloved’s heart one more time.
6. Bejeweled Long Braids At Reem Acra
Braided hairstyles always lead to utterly romantic and charming looks and when you improvise a little adding lovely embellishment to your hair, the outcome is going to be even more fabulous. At Reem Acra hairstylist Joseph DiMaggio decorated the super long braids of the models reaching the waist with chic jewelry, stars and pearls, while the crown was kept simple with a classic center parting. The makeup was soft and beautiful with the pink lip-gloss being the focus of the overall look.
7. Flower-Adorned French Twist At Oscar de la Renta
The “brides” at Oscar de la Renta were oh-so-romantic and ethereal wearing those gorgeous dresses finished off with the classic French twists accessorized with simple bows or big floral details. The makeup was about creating a healthy and radiant complexion with flushed cheeks and a natural eye makeup with the focus placed on the perfectly shaped eyebrows. This is yet another classic bridal beauty look opting for which you can never makeup a mistake!
8. Undone Updo With Floral Adornments At Angel Sanchez
The hair at Angel Sanchez was so pretty featuring an undone updo spiced up with lots of floral details added in a diagonal manner. This was beautifully combined with a shimmering eye gloss that brightened up the look, as well as soft pink blush accentuating the cheekbones and a transparent lip-gloss used to create the effect of the juicy and kissable pout.
9. Voluminous Undone Updo At Theia
When you tease up your natural hair gently and gather it high into a casual undone updo with lots of volume added to the crown, you get a 1900s inspired bridal updo, one that got us charmed at Theia. The slightly disco-style glistering makeup came to be the focus of the look featuring a fuchsia eyeshadow added to the lids, which instantly popped out on the background of the nude face.
10. Butterfly Bun At Ines Di Santo
Using hair accessories to elevate your bridal hairstyles is something very common and if you are looking for unique details other than flowers and headbands, think tiny butterflies that can add a fairy-tale vibe to a classic sleek bun. The models at Ines Di Santo wore lovely white butterfly clips instead of a veil, adding drama and a romantic allure to their divine looks. The makeup was equally astounding composed of sharp winged eyeliner, a soft pink lip-gloss and a rosy blush added to the cheeks.
