The high bun

a.k.a "The pammy"

Lift the bun from low to high and you have this years hottest trend, especially teamed with 90's bangs. The high bun is a feature itself and a great way to show off the back of a dress. There are so many variations depending on how sleek or textured you would like the look but this year it's all about texture just like our creations below.

the half up half down

Always popular because it's best of both worlds and most people love their hair down but need the front secured to stay neat and more weather and dance resistant.

Last year was all about the textured, boho twists and this year we are getting more requests for 60's inspired styles with bends and volume and more polished variations.

This years hottest accessory is the bow!

Hollywood, glam, sleek.

Waves are here to stay and there are so many variations of them so you can put your spin on them.

Clip in extensions are normally needed to create volume and hold for this style but the good news is our brides get a discount with Zala.
