#BuroBrides: All the hair inspiration you need for the big day

From getting your dream gown to deciding on a special place to have your ceremony at, there’s a long checklist to go through before your big day. But when it comes to your beauty look, let us help you out with this compilation of must-try hairdos inspired from both celebs and runways this season:


A touch of drama with gilded hair accessories:

If you were as enchanted as we are by Kate Bosworth’s ultra-cool look during the 2016 Met Gala, be glad to know that hair accessories are seriously trending this season. Whether you have long locks or a choppy short hairdo, bejeweled hair accessories make for the most glamorous looks. Take your pick from Rodarte’s gilded additions to Chanel’s jewel-encrusted headband.

Loose and flowy with a touch of femininity:

You can’t deny that Cara Delevingne has got hair game, especially when she lets it all down. For brides-to-be who prefer leaving their hair down instead of an updo, try out Gucci and Opening Ceremony’s half-pomp, half-down hairstyle, or even Jenny Packham and Anna Sui’s simple, pared-back looks.

A braided beauty:

If we’re talking about braided ‘dos, the pioneer of this look on the red carpet has got to be Diane Kruger, who single-handedly made braids popular all thanks to her depiction of Helen of “Troy” in the movie. Go for a boho spin like how Houghton Bridal did, or Reem Acra’s Grecian-inspired braided ponytail that’s absolutely lovely. If you want a more complicated look, Herve Leger and Christian Siriano has a plethora of braids that might pique your fancy.


Not your traditional updo:

There is a reason why the Duchess of Cambridge’s long beautiful locks always make it to the top of best celebrity hair lists. But she fares excellently when she sport updos for galas and formal black-tie events as well. If you’re looking for a romantic updo without being too predictable, try out Alberta Ferretti’s goddess-like updo, Dior’s double knots, or even Carolina Herrera’s ultra romantic side ‘do with floral touches.
