While we love soft pink lips and ballet slipper–hued nails, the spring 2019 bridal season was full of untraditional styles, hair accessories, and touches of metallic! Fashion Reverie has rounded up favorite trends to say, “I do” to!

Center PartsOne of the easiest trends to pull of this season was hair parted right down the center. Whether hair was styled up or down, during New York Bridal Week simple styles with middle parts were seen everywhere!

Alon Livne showcased an effortless looking glossy, wet hairstyle with the oh-so-chic part. Hair was pinned back behind the ears to really showcase the model’s face.

Viktor and Rolf also went for a simple beauty look to complement their magnificent gowns with a short and sweet straight style with … you guessed it a center part!

Metallic EyesLela Rose had a metallic rose moment at their downtown fashion week presentation. Lead artist Kelli J. Bartlett for Glamsquad created this stunning bridal beauty look by prepping the eye with MAC Paints in Bamboom. She then stamped the shimmery rose shade from Huda Beauty Obsessions Palette in mauve right into the lash line.

“This shadow is super, super soft, so you are going to see eyeshadow fall off, it’s just going to happen,” Bartlett warns. To make sure you don’t have specs of metallic shadow all over your face, she recommends using Erno Laszlo’s Multi Task Eye Serum Masks as a shadow shield. When you remove the mask, you have a nice clean under eye Bartlett explains. Not to mention the added benefits of your eye being lifted and even the reduction of blueness under the eye as well!

“Maybe this isn’t your day of look, maybe it’s your rehearsal dinner look where you try and play up some color. You try something a bit different,” Bartlett gushes regarding how wearable this style is for all brides. She even suggests it for a bridal shower to change it up a little. “It’s not often you wear all white, blush or ivory, so don’t be afraid to be a modern bride … do something a little unexpected.”

Faux MohawksWhile Fashion Reverie realizes that not every bride is going to embrace this look, Moroccanoil’s Artistic Director Kevin Hughes designed this for one very particular rockstar bride in mind. “A new, modern girl who is brilliant, active in society, an artist. She desires a couture feeling with a fresh twist.”

If that describes your style to a T, try it out yourself. Start by clipping up a horseshoe shaped section of hair on the top of your head. Then take the remaining hair and create a classic French twist, securing with bobby pins. Now to make the standout mohawk! Release the top section and begin to create multiple knots and pin them into the base. This shortens the hair and gives the foundation for that stand-up style! Once all the hair is pinned into a line down the center of your head, spray the hair with Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray and Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Extra Strong at the root and tease it with a small comb to get the hair to stand on end. Finish the look with a healthy spray of your favorite hairspray (Hughes used the Extra Strong Hairspray again) and your wedding ready!

Blurred LipsWhile it’s true we usually try to avoid our makeup looking as if it’s been wiped off, Vivienne Westwood’s show used these blurred red pouts to add some interest and dimension to her collection.

To recreate the look at home we could give you a step-by-step instruction, but this isn’t the kind of look you want to be quite so precise with. So go try on your favorite shade of lipstick, that color that complements your complexion like no other can, and give it a little smear. Ta-da your runway ready, just like that!

Ponytails For Days“I’ve been talking about ponytails for 20 years now, they’re always on trend,” shares Giovanni Vaccaro for Glamsquad backstage at Lela Rose’s Bridal presentation. “There’s always a version of a ponytail [trending],” he explains.

For Lela Rose, he created a long low pony right on the back of the neck. The hair is soft with great texture and finished off with a velvet bow tied around the hair and the neck. But, this isn’t the only ponytail Vaccaro created for Bridal Week; he also created a power pony for Hayley Paige.

Vaccaro explains more about why ponytails are perfect not just for brides, but for every occasion. “It’s based on how the women’s feeling, her silhouette her facial shape. So if you want an instant sort of Botox or facelift you can do something really high and really tight and sleek and gelled and secure. If you want something that’s really feminine and soft you can do something lower, leave pieces hanging out around the face. It’s so customizable and that’s what makes it fun,” he explains.   “That’s why ponytails will always be in style. No one is every going to say the pony is gone, it’s not gonna happen!”

AccessoriesDesigners didn’t want the gowns to be the only show stoppers this season, topping their looks off with crowns, flowers, hats, ribbons, and more.

If you’re craving a little extra opulence on your big day, look no further than THEIA’s spring 2019 royal wedding–inspired collection. Creative Director Don O’Neill encompassed all the majesty of the monarchy with a modern twist, pairing his designs with delicate feminine bridal makeup. In true British royal fashion, each of his brides wore a crown to complete the wedding ensemble. Even if you’re not Meghan Markle, every woman should feel like a princess on her wedding day.

Reem Acra, inspired by Khalil Gibran’s “The Prophet,” showcased stunning ethereal silhouettes and dry, undone, romantic waves with large floral crowns. Celebrity Stylist Brian Buenaventura created “S” waves sprayed with René Furterer Vegetal Texture Spray for effortlessly cool hair. The look also featured hidden skinny cornrow braids working as an anchor for the large floral crowns, which half the hair fell over the crown to complete the royalty meets free spirit vibe of the show.

However, accessories were so much more than crowns! Alon Livne presented a gorgeous large lace hat for the woman channeling old school glamor and Viktor and Rolf used headbands for extra interest and of course let’s not forget those stunning velvet bows around the ponytails and necks of models at Lela Rose.
