Wedding Hair Inspiration: How To’s, Tips & Tricks

Celebrity stylists Dereq Clark and Mara Roszak compiled their wedding hair inspiration, how-to’s, tips and tricks for the summer/fall wedding season.

For those brides struggling to decide on how to do their hair for the day-of, perhaps they will find wedding hair inspo through the below by Wella Professionals Brand Ambassador Dereq Clark and Wella Professionals Celebrity Stylist Mara Roszak.

The Modern & Playful Bride by Mara Roszak on Juno Temple and Zoe Saldana

“Juno’s look is ideal for the bride that is looking for volume and softness, but wants something more modern, fun and out of the box. I would suggest this full braided fishtail updo for a dress that has some texture and playfulness for a romantic softness with a modern edge. Zoe’s look is also very modern. It’s perfect for a bride looking for a slicked back, or middle parted style which pairs well with a sleek silhouette dress with a low back. Wella Professionals EIMI Ocean Spritz Salt Hairspray is the hero product to replicate this look. The spray just adds the perfect amount of additional texture to the base before braiding. Wella Professionals Color Fresh Masks are also great to play with to enrich and enhance your natural color before your wedding without making any major changes. It’ll enhance your hair to make your color naturally pop on your big day. You could also consider adding a bit of extra hair, like a ponytail extension that matches perfectly, for extra volume.

The Dimensional Brunette by Dereq Clark

This look is great for the bride who wants to keep her natural rich brunette color but play it up for her big day. Adding a few ribbons of dimension to switch it up just a tad creates a softer and natural look and feel while still being pretty subtle without too much of a change in color. I would recommend Wella Professionals Shinefinity in shade 06/71 to achieve this subtle brown/brunette. It’ll make your hair incredibly shiny and healthy looking in addition to adding that dimension of color, ideal for your special day. And bonus, it’s zero lift and zero damage so your hair’s health won’t be another thing to add to your list of stress as a bride.

The Retro Pony by Mara Roszak on Margaret Qualley

Margaret’s look is very universal and makes a beautiful bridal hairstyle. This voluminous ponytail can nod to a 60’s retro look, but also feels soft & modern. If the bride has a dress with a full bottom, this voluminous pony is perfect. There are lots of movement, and a style like this can look romantic during the ceremony and be really fun for dancing as the evening progresses.  I always recommend a hair trial before the big day. With this style you have options to play around with the front hairline. You can part it in the middle with a few pieces in the front softly falling or you can pull it all back and off the face. You can even create a combo of the two especially if you have layers by playing with some soft pieces around the ears pulled out.  I definitely recommend using Wella Professionals EIMI Root Shoot Precise Root Mousse for whichever variation you choose as it creates the perfect amount of volume as you blow out and set this ponytail.

The Blonde Sweet Spot by Dereq Clark

This look is great for a bride who loves to be blonde but doesn’t wanna be too cool or worm in tone right in that sweet spot. I would start the look with a fresh cut. Then for the blonding process, I would recommend Wella Professionals Shinefinity in shade 09/13 for that perfect blonde tone. A great tip too would be to incorporate the Wella Professionals Fusionplex line to keep the bride’s hair strong and healthy throughout her blonding experience. These products help to protect hair against breakage and prevents future damage, so it will help keep the bride’s hair balanced, viable and intact.
