If you’re normally a ‘wash and go’ or a messy bun kind of girl, when it comes to choosing the right wedding hairstyle this might seem like a daunting task.

There’s so much to consider when it comes to deciding on your big day ‘do and given that this is likely to be the most photographed hairstyle of your life, it makes sense that you want it to be perfect ­– without a hair out of place.

Whether you have short, curly hair or long, straight hair, fancy a half-up, half-down look or have no idea how you want your hair to be styled, Reef Salons is here to brush all your worries away. Their dedicated hairstylist team will bring their expertise, extensive training and knowledge of the latest bridal hairstyle trends to help you get your dream hair for when you say your ‘I do’s’.

There would be nothing worse than having a bad hair day on the morning of your wedding. That’s why Reef is a cut above the rest, as they offer pre-wedding consultations, use the very best high-end haircare brands (including Oribe, Kevin Murphy and ghd) and will travel to any venue to offer their luxury bespoke bridal service, making sure every bride feels fabulous inside and out.

‘We establish a real friendship with our clients, as we want to make them feel special and well looked after,’ says Reef Salons owner, Joanne. ‘We insist that all our brides have a trial before the big day as it’s so important that they are happy and our team are aware of what’s happening on the day. We always ensure we have a lot of preparation with our brides, to make sure they feel and look their best leading up, during and after they’re married.

‘During consultations, our stylists can explore many looks that you’d like to experiment with. They can also help get your hair in optimum condition before your wedding and ensure the colour is perfectly ready for the big day. We know what it means to look and feel your best on your special day, which is why we incorporate a high standard in technical ability to provide effortless beauty. Your dreamy hair will photograph perfectly from every angle.’



Prep at home

Use a prescriptive home care regime in the lead up to your wedding to get your hair in the best condition possible.


Speak to your stylist

Our stylist will work with you to create a long-lasting style that’ll work in harmony with your hair type.


Prep on the morning of your wedding

Take advice from your stylist and wash/prep hair accordingly on the morning of your wedding. This means your stylist can prep accordingly and finish with a suitable styling spray.


Romantic classic Hollywood waves  

Large barrel curls twisting away from the face are an oh-so-romantic touch to this vintage style.

Classic polished chignon 

This beautiful bride’s glossy low chignon is proof that a romantic wedding hairstyle can be perfectly polished.

Sleek modern pony with a classic wave 

Ponytails can be super flirty. Gathered at the base of the head, this bride’s pony showcases her loose waves without detracting from the details of her wedding dress.

Soft curls half-up, half-down 

Glossy long locks in a simple, partially pulled-back hairstyle gives the bride the best of both worlds. This look allows a bride to achieve the romance of soft waves while also keeping her hair out of her face.

Modern chignon

This whimsically romantic and relaxed take on the classic chignon with gentle twists and loose pieces around the face creates drama but also adds softness to the face.

Hollywood glam blowout

Your stylist will use a big-barrel curling tong to create romantic yet soft and sexy curls that create a voluminous look that is also natural and elegant.
