Sara Muhammad, co-founder of Smack Makeup Ibiza, gives us the inside scoop on the top five hottest hair trends for Ibiza brides in 2013. See real life examples of stunning Smack Ibiza brides on their wedding day below and read more about Smack Ibiza here.
1. The rebel. Because no two brides are created equal! Sara says hot new looks to hit the wedding aisles this summer will include creative twists, knots and grunge-esque wet looks, inspired by the recent Chanel, Marni and Chloe catwalk shows.
2. The new up ‘dos. This season, it’s all about the ponytail, says Sara! Complicated up ‘dos are out, and simple no-fuss ponies, or loose, messy buns at the nape of your neck are in. Part hair in the middle or on the side, and pull to the nape of your neck for the most flattering effect, and loop a piece of hair around to fasten. Low, deconstructed chignons are also popular, or for extra drama, backcombed and textured beehives.
3. Super sleek, ultra straight locks. Get the hair straighteners out of retirement, because sleek locks are back! Sara says one of this season’s major looks is to have a ‘wet look’ effect on the roots and sides of your hair, combed back into a middle parting, then the rest dropping smooth and straight. The same goes for short hair – think smooth, straight and slick.
4. Boho braids. Plaits and French braids are so last year – 2013 is all about the classic fishtail or two-piece twists, says Sara. But forget the perfect, tight braids – this summer’s brides will be deconstructing the look for a messy, almost dreadlock style effect. Whether you opt for one long braid (Smack can help you choose the right human hair extensions if needed), or smaller twists pulled back from your face, it adds beautiful texture and is easy to manage throughout the day.
5. Low maintenance locks. Ideal for the boho Ibiza brides, it’s all about keeping it natural, blow-dried with a simple parting, and perhaps a light wave – think more ‘out of bed’ than ‘beachy’. Scrape strands back off your face and secure loosely at the back – no fuss, no muss!
