Summer Wedding Hair and Make Up Inspiration

Tuesday, July 31, 2018

Wedding season is here! There’s all sorts to take into consideration when choosing your summer wedding hair and makeup, aside from your personal preference. You need to think about where you're getting married, details of the dress you want to show off, features you want to flaunt and those you don’t. Remember, all eyes will be on you!

Boho Braids

Perfect for creating interest within the hair instead of choosing a formal up-do, there is no end of braid options for you. Whether you go for mini loose braids placed throughout the hair, or a full, structured fishtail braid, this hairstyle will keep you going from the aisle to the afterparty.

High Bun or Up Do

There’s been a bun revival of late, and there’s no better choice for a bride who wants to make sure she stays cool throughout her summer wedding. You can choose something elegant and neat, or relaxed and messy – whatever fits in with how you want to look on your big day. Top knots high on your head are an excellent choice if you have a backless dress or back detail you want to show off. They can also add height and can help lengthen your neck, making them really flattering.

Relaxed Curls and Waves

If you love wearing your hair down, you’re probably not going to feel comfortable with all your hair styled into an up-do, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have a beautiful wedding hairstyle. Loose curls keep you looking natural and romantic – the ideal look for a relaxed summer wedding.

Dewy Complexion

You want to look like you’re glowing from within on your wedding day. You want to shine! You want to look like the best version of yourself and by choosing a dewy make-up look you can go for fresh-faced and glorious without looking like you’ve tried too hard. The artists at Gemma Sutton often use MAC Strobe Cream to boost the complexion with its iridescent particles.


Sunkissed skin

Match your skin to the season! Getting the perfect summer glow doesn’t have to mean an all-over deep spray tan. This look can be achieved with make up contour and highlighter. Aim for only a shade or two darker than your natural skin tone to keep things natural.


When thinking about your summer wedding hair and make-up you want to feel comfortable, whilst still feeling really confident. You want to find hair and make-up true to your natural style and that fits the vibe of your wedding, but you also want to feel like a goddess! If you’re feeling confident, it’ll shine through and add to your natural beauty.
