We heart the reverse “undone” braid that lead hairstylist Kevin Ryan created for the Baja East show using UNITE Beach Day Texturizing Spray. It’s perfect for the Coachella bride — just add a daisy and you’re all set!

Relaxed updos are trending (a look we LOVE for bridal). At the Zang Toi show, renowned hairstylist Eiji Yamane of Eiji Salon styled low chignons that were loose yet refined, with a few tendrils framing the face. In order to create this effortlessly elegant look, Eiji used René Furterer Styling Wax to smooth hair and add shine. 3new-york-fashion-week-hairstyle

For the ladies who lunch, this chignon by Odile Gilbert for Kérastase Paris is a true stunner. It perfectly complemented Altuzarra’s polished collection. Odile used a classic hairnet to keep ever

ything in place. 4new-york-fashion-week-hairstyle

A pin-straight hairstyle with a strong center part imbues any wedding-day look with class and elegance. At the Monique Lhuillier show, Recine for Moroccanoil kept the hair smooth and flawless with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium.  5new-york-fashion-week-hairstyle

This summer, bohemian braids were everywhere. At the Tadashi Shoji show, we found the perfect braid for fall and winter’s formal weddings, thanks to lead hairstylist Rodney Cutler for ULTA Beauty. This sleek, braided chignon would look incredible paired with a lavish wedding gown. Cutler told us he was inspired by the Venetian-inspired lace in the collection.

This simple, organic top-knot that we spotted at Philip Limis a great choice for unconventional brides. TRESemmé lead stylist Paul Hanlon said it was influenced by “the romanticism of the Pre-Raphaelites, but with a punk edge.”

Tip: You’ll need dry shampoo in order to achieve a matte texture for this look. We recommend TRESemmé Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo.

At the Suno show, Kérastase lead hairstylist Odile Gilbert crafted a cage herringbone braid that screams bohemian, cutting-edge bride. This hairstyle would be ideal at a rustic barn wedding or a vineyard. Add flowers or pins for a more romantic feel.

Brides who love Old Hollywood glamour can channel Marilyn Monroe in this vintage-inspired hairdo from the Jenny Packhamshow. How beautiful would this be paired with a slinky wedding gown? To modernize this style, Antonio Corral Calero for Moroccanoil kept the look a bit more disheveled and used Moroccanoil Root Boost to maximize volume.

This sixties-esque hairstyle from the Rachel Zoecollection would look so pretty with a vintage lace wedding gown. “The low pony with a center part is polished and mod. But staying true to my love of bohemia, I also wanted to incorporate a braid element,” the designer explained. L’Oreal Professionnel artist Pepper Pastor pulled this look together with L’Oreal Professionnel Densité.

Planning a destination wedding? Take a style cue from Kaelen‘s show. Head stylist Amy Farid for Oribe Hair Care created a fresh hairstyle accented with orchids that is begging to be worn down a sandy beach aisle. The trick to this ‘do was prepping the hair with Oribe’s Foundation Mist and using the legendary Mason Pearson brush for a super-shiny, healthy look.

For a modern take on Swan Lake, wear this sculptural knotted bun with a lace ballgown. At the Novis show, Aveda hair artist Frank Rizzieri revealed that “This is the bun of that cool girl. It has natural pieces poking out so it’s not too perfect. It’s graphic and different but simple.”

Just add a veil to this sexy, clean look and you are good to go! For the Narciso Rodriguez show, Paul Hanlon from TRESemmé created effortless waves by spraying TRESemmé Climate Protection Mousse onto freshly washed hair, dividing it into a few loose braids and then drying it with a diffuser. After undoing the braids, he flat-ironed pieces around the hairline to achieve a flattering sense of movement.

This hairstyle from the Bibhu Mohapatra show appeals to the adventurous and worldly bride. L’Oreal professionnel artist Amit Abraham combined tribal braids with a lady-like chignon to create “a modern and strong look.” Trade the patterned scarf for an ivory tulle headwrap and this look is aisle-ready.

Celebrity hairstylist Sally Hershberger pulled off a hairstyle that is equal parts feminine, sexy and wearable at the Naeem Khan show. This easy-breezy style is the perfect balance to a lavish bridal gown; it keeps the look modern and fresh.

At Jason Wu‘s show, lead hairstylist Odile Gilbert for Kérastase Paris came up with the perfect ponytail for a wedding: it’s polished, bouncy and frizz-free! He described it as “healthy, classic and Americana preppy.”

16new-york-fashion-week-hairstyle

Didier Malige for René Furterer designed a sleek, side-parted hairstyle inspired by Twiggy to complement the minimalistic, mod vibe ofLisa Perry‘s new collection. “The idea for the hair was to look ’60s but fresh,” she explained. We think this style would be so fun with a short white dress!

At the Tracy Reese show, hairstylist BoK-Hee created ballet-inspired updos that she accessorized with headbands from the latest scünci x Tracy Reese collection (available in Spring 2015). For a big-day look that’s on-point, pair this hairstyle with a tulle ballgown.

18new-york-fashion-week-hairstyle

Sexy and luxe was the look du jour at Jill Stuart. Celebrity stylist James Pecis for Moroccanoil was inspired by Jerry Hall-like waves, which he brushed out to create a soft texture. We love this glamorous style paired with a simple A-line wedding gown.

19new-york-fashion-week-hairstyle

Aveda guest artist Frank Rizzieri updated a classic half-up, half-down hairstyle for the Tibi show by using a bungee elastic, which allowed for a cool placement to keep the hair off the face. Imagine this modern style paired with a dreamy silk wedding gown.

20new-york-fashion-week-hairstyle

The Reem Acra show presented a fresh vision of modern glamour for today’s brides. Hairstylist Didier Malige strived to create a light, airy hairstyle as a counterpoint to the ethereal silk organza gowns that went down the runway.

A Dream Vintage Destination Wedding in The Hills of Tuscany from Nadia Meli Photography

Good morning lovelies, oh do I have just the perfect post for you! It is absolutely guaranteed to brighten any Monday, however wet or miserable, because today’s vintage-inspired destination wedding is quite simply sublime! Beautifully captured by Nadia Meli, Manuela & Klaus’s charming celebration under the Tuscan sun, really is gorgeous. I mean, when the photographer says she wished it was her wedding, you just know you are in for something special…..1 A-Vintage-Inspired-Destination-Wedding-in-Tuscany-from-Nadia-Meli-Photography

Inspired by their love of the simple things in life, like good food and great wine, Manuela and Klaus wanted a rustic Italian wedding infused with the colours and flavours of Tuscany. And when they visited Villa Cinciano with its stunning gardens, views over rolling hills, quaint courtyard and old farmhouse, they knew: this was it. From the elegant natural colour palette and the pretty fresh flowers (pale pink and blue hydrangeas, dahlias and roses) combined beautifully with aromatic Italian herbs to Manuela & Klaus’s chic style this wedding is Perfect (with a capital P)

Of course, such a beautiful day was only befitting the rather romantic start to their relationship“We met in a small bar in Zurich, Switzerland on November 1, 2011. I was out with a friend of mine and Klaus had a after work drink with a colleague. At first I just heard Klaus’ voice without seeing him and his voice just made me turn around. That is how our relationship began…” The couple dated for around a year before they got engaged, but according to Manuela, Klaus knew from the beginning that one day he would ask her to be his wife! (swoon)

Before we take a closer look a few words from Nadia, the lovely lady behind all of these gorgeous photos….. “There is really only one thing I have to say about this wedding: I wish it was mine. No really. This is my dream wedding. In the Tuscan sun, under a big tree, with beloved people and good Italian food. I mean!?

Being Manuela and Klaus’s wedding photographer was a dream. I had total freedom, they trusted us completely and put their faith in our hands. Feeling that kind of freedom and appreciation just brings out the best inside of you!

Everything about this wedding was inspiring. Just being in the italian countryside is enough to get your creativity going! When you add this lovely location and the wonderful people : it was nothing short of perfect. I am sounding like a broken record here. But I mean it. This intimate wedding was pure joy and a pleasure to photograph!”

So, sit back and enjoy every single dream worthy photo of this wedding, as we whisk you away to the Tuscan countryside..…

3. Vintage Motorbike or Scooter (side-car optional!)

For a fun exit full of retro charm there is nothing more cool than a vintage scooter or motorbike (with or without sidecar) But think about your wedding dress before you go ahead and book because anything long or full finitely won’t work – perhaps a good excuse for a chic reception dress?
