Old yearbooks are a great way of seeing how formal hair in Melbourne has changed over the decades. From the Swinging Sixties to the big hair of the eighties to the half-up hair styling of today, there's an amazing collection of different looks. It's a good source of inspiration, too.
Every decade seems to have had its own style and, if it wasn't a look that suited you, you'd be praying for the trend to change. Thankfully there's much more variety now.
Popular Wedding Hairstyles
Formal hair in Melbourne today is a little like the tousled hair of the 1930s, except we've added braids and GHD curls. Similar to the most popular wedding hairstyles we've gone more for a mix of half-up, half-down.
Whilst very feminine and pretty there are a few points to remember with half-up hair styling. If you're going to leave much of your hair loose you must ensure it's in tip-top condition. Your locks need to be super shiny and smooth as they tumble down your back.
For any special occasion, it's so important to talk to your hair stylist ahead of time and try out some different looks. That way there's time to apply some deep conditioning treatments to restore strength and shine.
Loose hair needs some sort of extra visual element to really make a statement and that's where braids can be really useful. Even better, choose a hair stylist who can braid and weave to create something really spectacular. Some of the favourites include the Half Up French Braid and Half Up Ladder Braid. One of the prettiest has to be the Half Up Braided Flower - just perfect for your formal or your wedding day.
