During this year’s market we noticed a trend of fresh waves and playful curls when it came to hair styles. Redken Session Stylist Giovanni Giuntoli , who styled hair for Christos, Kenneth Pool and Amsale runway shows, picked three hair styles that he thinks will be the next trend for brides. Check out the hairstyles below and learn how to style them yourself:
1. End-of-Day Waves
For a casual, youthful look, wear your hair down in loose playful curls for an “after-wedding” look. Here’s how to pull off the look:
Do It Yourself: To achieve the look, part the hair wherever it best reflects the face shape, whether it be left, right or center. Set the curls with a 1-inch curling iron and pin in place until dry. Let the curls out and pull until you have soft waves, finishing the style with a working spray to achieve a silky matte finish.
2. Cutting Edge Pleat
This gorgeous up-do is perfect for those who want a conservative yet high fashion look. Here’s how to pull it off:
Do It Yourself: To create this look, prep the hair by blow-drying with bodifying cream-mousse, applying at the roots and through the ends for all-over body and texture. Then fold all of the hair except for the front section two inches from the crown into a pleat. Curl small sections of the front two inches with a one-inch barrel and pin each up in place atop the head.
3. Statement Pony
This glamorous, red carpet-inspired look is perfect for those who want a natural look but still crave drama via volume.
Do It Yourself: Obtain this look by first sectioning off the hair at the crown, misting with super strength finishing spray and then back brushing for height. “Play with the shape and height at the crown to keep it tailored to your face shape,” Giuntoli explained. Next gather the hair into a pony and wrap a one-inch section around the elastic. Leave a natural wave in the pony tail and mist with glistening mist for a glossy sheen.

In celebration of the royal wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton, Priscilla of Boston and Paris Tiaras are introducing new tiaras for brides who want to look like Kate Middleton for their wedding day. Tiaras are a popular wedding veil alternative, and they have been growing in popularity over the years.
Priscilla of Boston recently released two new tiaras to commemorate the royal wedding. Their “Priscilla” tiara (left) is a gorgeous tiara comprised of silver filigree and Swarovski crystals. They also offer a more delicate tiara (right), a gorgeous piece that was created with silver filigree and encrusted with Swarovski crystals.
Paris Tiaras also offers gorgeous “royal wedding”-inspired designs. Each tiara is delicate, beautiful and encrusted with Swarovski crystals and pearls.

The singer and reality TV star is gearing up for her upcoming wedding to fiance Eric Johnson. She recently told People that she already has her wedding dress, and it’s going to be colorful with a plunging neckline.
“It’s definitely going to be beautiful. I want it to be different from what I’ve had before,” she said. “I like my collar bone. I have a long neck, so I like to show off my décolletage.”
Although Jessica hasn’t revealed the designer yet, we think these wedding dresses will look (almost) as good as the real thing. Check them out below:
