Whether you are the bride, bridesmaid or simply a guest at a wedding this year, ghd has the ultimate wedding hair for you.
This season, take inspiration from the spring/summer 17 catwalks including Erdem, Chloe, Emilia Wickstead and Zac Posen and embrace the new laissez-hair; understated, effortless, luxury locks.
No matter whether you have a hairdresser or are styling your hair yourself, the key for any wedding look is to prep your hair in the months before. Make sure you start to apply regular treatments and masks so that your hair is healthy and your style will hold throughout the day and evening. Use ghd’s Advanced Split End Therapy (£19.95) in the weeks leading up to your big day to help nourish and fortify damaged ends, leaving your hair feeling sleek, smooth and shiny.

Antique braids create a soft, romantic hairstyle that looks chic and effortless. Adding texture and detail is an easy way to make your wedding hair look more special.
The hair has a soft, romantic feel; it is not too considered or elaborate. It is a pretty look that translates well into wedding hair. Anthony Turner
Anthony Turner explains how to get the look:
- Prep with a salt spray before blow-drying hair downwards using ghd air® hairdryer (£99) and fingers.
- Loosely curl the hair in different directions with the ghd curve® classic curl tong (£120).
- Use the ghd tail comb (£7.50) to create a middle parting then secure hair into two separate ponytails at the nape of the neck. Tie with elastic.
- Braid each ponytail and then loosely dishevel with hands to give the braids a deconstructed texture.
- Cross the braids over and pin flat against the nape of the neck. They must stay flat to the head and not create a bulky silhouette.
- Gently pull out sections around the hairline before wrapping a matte black ribbon around the hair and underneath the braids, securing in a bow at the side of the head.
