Jewelled Botanical accessories

A huge trend for SS18 is the use of botanical and garden inspired hair accessories. Go simple and elegant like this symmetrical leaf headband by Anna Campbell or opt for something more wild and whimsical like this intricate exotic garden headpiece by Francesca Miranda.  By adorning your hair in structured crystals, pearls and gems, you can still get that floral crown vibe with more of a polished look.

Textured Updo

The bridal hair trend that EVERYONE has been talking about-  the textured updo. These modern and chic styles are a fusion of plaited braids and classic styles, and look best when there slightly ‘undone’ with a few little loose wipsy hairs floating around. Pretty, feminine and romantic but with an edge, we might just have our favourite!
