2016 Spring Wedding Hair and Makeup Ideas
Posted on March 28, 2016 by Stacy Harbert
When you're in your wedding dress with your hair and makeup done, the wedding aisle essentially becomes your own personal catwalk. With all eyes on you, you'll definitely want to look and feel gorgeous. If you've scored the perfect dress but need a little direction for hair and makeup, check out our roundup of our favorite spring 2016 bridal looks.
1. Go Au Naturale
When you're all decked out in your dress, shoes, and jewelry, you might be tempted to go all out with your makeup, too. However, the trend for spring is to let your natural beauty shine with glowing skin, lightly flushed cheeks, and bitten lips. The key to making this look work is having clean, exfoliated, and well-moisturized skin. Stick with a light foundation or tinted moisturizer, a light dusting of blush or bronzer, a swipe of mascara, and a nude or pink lip.
2. Bohemian Hair
Free-flowing tresses and undone updos are fresh, contemporary, and laid-back hair looks for the spring. This type of hairstyle looks lovely with flowing, ethereal gowns, but it also adds fun contrast to a more classic and formal gown. Achieve this look by adding small braids or romantic waves to your hair. Or, if you have a hairstyle you already like, you can make it boho by adding some extra texture or waves and leaving a few loose strands down to frame your face.
3. Strong Brows
Bold brows really make eyes pop. To achieve this look, gently fill in the brows until they are the shape you want, and lightly apply a powder over it. It's a great way to enhance your eyes and add some dimension to your wedding-day look. We would suggest giving this look some trial runs before your big day since it's easy to go from perfectly bold to Groucho Marx brows without a little bit of practice.
4. Beautiful Braids
From face-framing halo braids to intricate updos to a single plait down the back, there's a braid for every bride. Looser side swept braids with face framing strands give a romantic and soft look. Or, try parting your hair in the center and doing a single braid down your back woven with shimmering beads or baby's breath for a whimsical look.
5. Soft & Fresh-Faced
The look that never seems to go out of style is a fresh, rosy glow. Rosy cheeks, pink lips, and lightly lined eyes enhance your natural beauty without looking too overdone. With spring weddings in mind, this look would be perfect for an outdoor garden wedding.
