On the hunt for some big day hair inspo? Looking to seek out the hottest bridal hair and beauty trends for next year? Top designer brands who showcased their new 2018 collections at the recent New York Bridal Market was just the place for the latest beauty must-do’s. For standout hair styling tips, we love Berta’s 2018 runway presentation: featuring beautiful loose bouncy waves, ethereal headpieces and smoky makeup, Berta leads the way when it comes to Cali-cool glamour and über sexy styling.


Want to try this look? It’s totally wearable and the perfect style nod to next season’s chicest hair trend. Here we ask Maëva, one of House of Thabiso’s featured stylilsts, how to channel Berta’s runway look for your wedding day. 

“I would call this look, ‘beach sexy hair’ - you can see beautiful, glamourous waves, but natural at the same time as they are loose. Before creating the waves, we need the right base; a straight blowdry with some Bumble and Bumble surf spray, directing the roots forward over the forehead. Following this, it’s all about the tong! Not to tight but not to big either, a size between 25-31 mm is ideal for this look. Make sure you protect your hair from the heat, the Redken styling iron shape will be very soft on your hair but a strong protector up to 232c°. Take some big sections and tong the hair vertically backward, out the face, especially on the sides. With sections at the back of the head, you can sometimes change the direction you curl for an even more natural look.”


Start the very first waves slightly lower around the face. We want to see some long straight roots with the curl opening from the cheek bones. If your hair holds a curl easily, loosen it straight away with your fingers. If not, leave the hair to cool and then pull it. Keep the end of the hair out of the tong, this is how we achieve this edgy touch. Add some Moroccanoil texture spray for the matt effect. Pull a bit more or even brush if necessary. Finally finish with a pretty head band to perfectly complete this look for a bride.”
