The Royal Wedding: Bridal Fall/Winter 2011 Hairstyles (Including Kate Middleton's)

Bride to be this spring/summer 2011? Take a look at some of the hottest bridal hair trends from New York City’s 2011 Bridal Fashion Week and tips from Redken.

This is hair with edge, and Redken’s hairstylist Giuntoli says, “The look is down, when it is typically up, resulting in a youthful, casual after-wedding look that’s flattering and flirty.” We think this look would look ravishing on Kate Middleton.

To achieve the look, prep hair to add texture and extra hold with Redken wool shake 08 gel-slush texturizer and then layer on spray starch 15 versatile ironing spray. Part the hair wherever it best reflects the face shape, whether it be left, right or center. Set the curls with a 1-inch curling iron and pin in place until dry. Let the curls out and pull until you have soft waves, finishing the style with fashion work 12 versatile working spray to achieve a silky matte finish. “These waves are not tight, they’re fresh. We’re trying to get away from the corkscrew,” Giuntoli explained.

This is a high-end Kenneth Pool look, with a luxurious finish. To create this look, prep the hair by blow-drying with aerate 08 bodifying cream-mousse, applying at the roots and through the ends for all-over body and texture. Then fold all of the hair except for the front section two inches from the crown into a pleat. Curl small sections of the front two inches with a one-inch barrel and pin each up in place atop the head. “The curls add a softer silhouette for height and a light, airy texture that you can almost see through.” Giuntoli said. For added shine and hold, finish the look with pure force 16 non-aerosol fixing spray.

Statement Pony – seen at Amsale

Who says ponytails can’t be bridal? Amsale’s Fall/Winter 2011 Bridal Fashion Week look was a natural, youthful ponytail with soft volume on the crown for additional glamor.

Obtain this look by first sectioning off the hair at the crown, misting with forceful 23 super strength finishing spray and then back brushing for height. “Play with the shape and height at the crown to keep it tailored to your face shape,” Giuntoli explained. Next gather the hair into a pony and wrap a one-inch section around the elastic. Leave a natural wave in the pony tail and mist with shine flash 02 glistening mist for a glossy polish.
