Wedding hair has come a long way from cliche messy curls and voluminous updos to tousled beach waves, soft ponytails, and dramatic braids. The year 2018 witnessed a plethora of loosey-goosey and effortless bridal hairdos. Brides went all out and glam in not so regular hairstyles and filled our lives with tons of inspiration to look forward to. While some made us sit up and gaze their ever-so-gorgeous floral updos, others instantly got us swooning over their braided half-tied hair. And not to forget the fresh & elegant Baby's breath hairstyles! They had a major moment this season.

All in all, the year went by was all about edgy and flaunt-worthy hairstyles. So, summing it up right, we've curated a list of bridal hair trends that ruled the year 2018. Browse through and ask your hairstylist to make the most of it.

Best Bridal Hair Trends we spotted in the year 2018

1. Slick tight buns

Who other than our very own Bollywood fashionista, Deepika Padukone approved of this voguish bridal hair trend? The B-town charmer donned this simplistic yet classy hairdo on most of her wedding revelries and looked every bit stunning. 

2. Open and wavy tresses

This hairstyle is indeed an all-time favorite amongst brides. Like every year, in 2018 too, a lot of brides were seen wearing those regular open and wavy tresses on their engagement, mehndi & reception ceremonies. 

3. Braids, Braids and some more Braids!

Exaggerated and cascading bridal braids with perky floral adornments made a lot of noise in 2018.

4. Floral updos

Floral buns have been in trend for quite some time now. Brides are religiously swearing by this voguish hair trend for their big day and nailing it like never before. Even though this hairstyle gained popularity in 2017 (post-Anushka Sharma's wedding), it  created the most rage in 2018.

5. Gajra adorned hairstyles

For an elaborate jaalidaar bun adornment, a single strand outlining, an all layered braid look or as an asymmetrical hair clip, Gajras were used in so many different ways to do bridal hair in 2018.

6. Baby's breath hairstyles

Remember the gorgeous baby's breath updo Kareena Kapoor donned for her reel-life bridal look in the film 'Veere Di Wedding'? Well, ever since the lady has sported it, brides are going gaga over it and are incorporating baby's breaths in their bridal hairdos too. Moreover, hairstylists are also making the most of these pretty little beauts and finding new & unique ways to use them in bridal hairstyles. 

7. Half updos with braids

Half-updos have had a major makeover in 2018. They are no more synonymous to those basic bridal hairdos. Hairstylists are adding a wow appeal to them by teaming them up with thin dutch braids. And they indeed look way more prettier!
