Which Type of Bride Are You?

1st August 2018

As hair and makeup stylists specialising in the luxury Scottish wedding industry we love nothing more than styling brides with a strong sense of personal style; be it elegant and understated, classic with a bohemian edge or full-blown glamour. Whatever the bride’s style, at AMM Hair and Makeup Team we pride ourselves on working closely with each bride and her bridal party to achieve the perfect wedding day look.

We are lucky enough to get to style brides of all different personalities, in the most stunning wedding venues in Scotland; from luxury hotels and castles to rustic barns. Below we have given you the low down on some of the different personality types and recommended styles, suppliers and products for each bride. Which bride are you?

Classic Castle Bride

Our classic castle bride dreams of a modern-day fairytale wedding; a 21stcentury princess in a grand Scottish castle. These brides are usually seeking a modern take on a traditional bridal hairstyle; a classic updo or half-up, half-down style. With these styles we always like to recommend that the bride washes her hair the night before and applies some medium-hold mousse before drying. This will give the bride’s hair better texture and hold on her special day. GHD Root Lift is a must have product for this style, this lightweight spray gives your hair added volume and body.

The classic bride usually wants a natural, but glowy look, with an understated lip and a pop of highlight. We would suggest the Anastacia Beverly Hills Sugar Glow Kit for the perfect wedding day glow (we especially love the shade Starburst!).

BoHo Barn Bride

Our barn bride dreams of all things bohemian and envisions more alternative and relaxed nuptials. A popular style for brides choosing to elope in the Scottish Countryside (or on the gorgeous isle of Skye), the BoHo bride loves vintage. A messy low-bun or textured beach waves are usually the hairstyles of choice, finished off with some fresh flowers. Ask your florist to provide some loose fresh flowers and foliage on the morning of your wedding and our hairstylists will create a beautiful arrangement in your hair – most florists are more than happy to do so and it is a lovely way to tie in your hair style to your wedding flowers. Design Me Hair’s “Puff Me” is a must-have for any boho hair style! This volumising hair powder is great for adding texture and body.

Minimal and effortless makeup is the goal for our BoHo bride – she wants to look and feel like the best possible version of herself, without being too “made up”. A natural, nude lip, dewy cheeks and rustic, smoky eyes to complete the look. For a warm coloured eyeshadow palette we would recommend Tarte Cosmetic’s tartelett toasted eyeshadow palette, featuring gorgeous coppers, pinks and beige tones!
