One of the key advantages of this low-maintenance hairstyle is that it allows you to wear your hair long and loose, while still keeping your tresses out of your face. The style can be achieved with straight or waved hair. Loose waves starting just below the ear look particularly lovely, and are an easy update on the Hollywood wave that’s been so popular for the last few seasons. Another bonus is that this versatile look suits any wedding dress silhouette. It can be combined with a veil for the ceremony and is also a great option for showing off statement jewellery, especially dangly earrings.

What makes this look so chic? The middle parting creates balance and facial symmetry, drawing the eyes to your face and highlighting your features (as well as that gorgeous bridal makeup!). It's sophisticated yet practical, making it a perfect choice for a busy bride who wants to look her best without spending hours in front of the mirror. And the best part? It looks great on nearly all hair types and textures, so you don't have to worry about whether it will work with your hair.

To achieve this look, your stylist will part your hair in the centre, then separate the top section and tuck it behind your ears, securing it with hairpins. They may add some texture to your hair with a bit of volume on the crown, while keeping the front smooth and sleek. You can also add pretty hairpins or even individual pearls or sparkles as an accent. And voila! You're ready to walk down the aisle with confidence and style.
