Classic bridal styles are more traditional. They often are sleek and elegant. However, they can have a modern twist to them. Often, classic brides choose to have more natural colors in their weddings, such as creams, browns, and ivories. Classic brides like to feel feminine, natural, and effortless on their wedding day. Many of the classic brides we work with love to incorporate lace and pearls into their styles. Here are our recommendations if you are looking for hair and makeup style ideas as a classic bride.
Often with classic bridal hairstyles, the lines are very clean, and the buns sit either high or low. The down styles typically have volume through the top, with a soft swooping bang in the front. There are variations to this style to incorporate a twist or detailing near the front. These styles usually pair nicely with a traditional comb accessory.
The makeup style pairing well with the classic bridal style is a champagne shimmer on the eyelid and a taupe brown blended into the crease. This can have some variation with the depth in the corners and the eyeliner depth. The skin would have a matte finish for a more traditional look, and the cheeks and lips would be a soft nude/peachy tone. If you want to incorporate more color into your look, a mauve tone could also be done with the lips and cheeks.
