Of course, we know this year didn’t go as planned for many brides and grooms, with lots of couples rearranging and postponing their big days. But with weddings now allowed to take place again, we thought it would be a good idea to round up all our fave wedding hair and makeup styles we’re currently obsessed with.

You deserve to look and feel special on your big day, and a huge part of that is testing out fun looks before you finally say, ‘I do’. Whether you’re getting married this year in an intimate ceremony or you’re planning for your big day in 2021, we’ve got your covered.

So, with the power vested in me by Cosmetify HQ, here are our favourite 2020 wedding looks.

Half up half down wedding hair

You can’t start a wedding look book and not include a gorgeous half up half down hairstyle. This look is an old faithful in the wedding hair scene. You can easily achieve these soft waves at home with a curling wand and a few pins. Think effortless, boho wedding vibes.

Wedding hair updo

On the flip side, we’re utterly obsessed with an elegant updo. This chic low bun is a gorgeous option for sophisticated brides-to-be. For this look you may need the help of a friend to make sure you get all those little stray hairs locked in place. Plenty of hairspray is in order!

Natural wedding makeup

Natural and minimalist makeup is a great option for the effortless bride, especially if you’re not confident with bold pigments and shades. Stick to a natural flush of blush on the cheeks and a glossy lip.

Glam wedding makeup

On the other hand, if you can’t go full glam on your wedding day then when can you? As beauty buffs we love these bold eyes paired with the glamourous, vintage waves. It’s giving us big Hollywood glam vibes.

Another wedding hairstyle we’re obsessed with in 2020 is natural curly hair. Let your curls do the talking with nourished tresses on your special day. We love these looks with hair swept to one side and embellished with glam accessories.

Short and sweet wedding hair

Short hair can be tricky on your big day, but we just love this short bob wedding hairstyle. Think textured locks with a slight wave and a simple twist or plait to hold it back from your face.

Wedding hair accessories

Wedding hair clips, wedding hair jewellery and now even wedding hair bows? There’s a lot of fun accessories you can add to your ‘do. We love these glam hair slides and the super chic and delicate hair bow. Both add a refreshing twist on classic styles. Keep in place with the perfect styling products.

Wedding hair with veil

When in doubt, get the veil out! Veils don’t have to be some big and never-ending train of taffeta and lace (although we do love those too), instead they can be a chic and simple head piece like these cute ones.

Whether you’re getting married soon or leaving it until next year, we hope you get the day of your dreams. For more inspo take a look at the 30 best wedding hair ideas and the best bridal makeup.
