Wedding season 2022... it’s well and truly here! We personally love wedding season in our industry – seeing all the hairstyles, nail designs and beauty looks you all create for your clients who are tying the knot is something we all enjoy. Here are the top hair and nail bridal trends for this year, the perfect inspiration for your upcoming bridal appointments this summer.  

1) Half-up Braids and Beachy Waves

As seen on TikTok, this trend is a combination of half-up half-down bridal hair and boho bridal hair. Just look at those curls! This is the perfect long hair bridal hairstyle as it allows for the stunning curls to be displayed in all their glory.

2) High Ballet Buns

This wedding season you can expect some requests for high bridal buns, especially from brides who want to display the detailed neckline on their dresses. Although bridal hair updos are always popular, it’s the high ballet bun in particular which is set to be popular.

4) Natural Pink Tones

Blush bridal nails will be highly sought after in 2022, aligning with the general natural nails trend of this year. It's thought that bridal ombre nails will be popular, especially designs which combine soft pinks and white.
