Art Deco Vintage Bridal Hair & Makeup: Bride & Mother of the Bride

vintage bridal hair & makeup by Pam Wrigley in London.

vintage bridal hair & makeup

Vintage bridal hair & makeup is so diverse and never goes out of fashion – there are so many eras with such elegant, classic looks to play with and today’s modern bride can even work with her stylist to take the best bits of her favourite vintage bridal hair & makeup looks and turn it into something truly unique.

Vintage bridal hair & makeup is one of my favourite styles to work with on my clients, it’s so much fun! I adore this 1920s/1930s style wedding dress that one of my brides this year wore. We worked hard on her trial day to find a vintage bridal hair & makeup look that worked for her and made her feel beautiful. We decided upon this gorgeous low bun hairstyle, structured and the back and a little looser at the front for a really romantic edge.

Teamed with a stunning bridal hair accessory and quite natural looking makeup with eyes that pop, this bridal hair & makeup look was absolutely perfect!

From the back of this stunning vintage bridal hair style you can see all of the intricate detail I included to make this look really something special.

This style is a wonderful match for the vintage bridal gown as well, drawing the eye down towards that lovely detail at the back, but adding the the overall effect rather than taking anything away from it.

For the Mother of the Bride, we went for a similarly structured low bun but with just a little less fanciful detail. Again, we have gone for the softer front with a neater back and some height on the crown for added elegance. Check out some more of my low bun hairstyles here!

If you’d like to learn how to do a fabulous 20’s finger wave for your bridal hairstyle, look no further! Follow this tutorial and you’ll be there in no time.

I think that this hair & makeup style is gorgeous. This mother of the bride style would also work just as well for a mature bride and just goes to show that you can look absolutely stunning for your big day, whatever your age
