Beautiful Hairstyles and Hair Advice for Today's Bride

For those looking for bridal hair inspiration, specialists from around the world stepped up to showcase some of the modern options for brides and  the bridal party. And the array is simply stunning.

With so many women slipping out of their wedding gowns into another less-structured outfit when the party starts, switching out the hair simply makes sense.

Danielle Stewart, a freelance wedding and special event hair specialist out of Tyers, Victoria east of Melbourne, shows a more refined finish for her brides. And this finish always starts with rich and healthy-looking color. For styling, she creates a variety of looks from luster-filled waves reminiscent of old Hollywood to polished pin-ups with an elegant appeal throughout.
