What’s the newest trend in bridal hair this season? According to veteran Fashion Week stylist Michelle Swiney, the trend is toward vintage 1940s glamour with retro waves updated with the addition of fishtail braids.

The Design Essentials Styling Team debuted such looks at this year’s Spring 2015 Galia Lahav Presentation Bridal Fashion Show. The Galia Lahav showcase featured bridal hairstyles that accentuated the sexy, elegant and edgy gowns. Presenting waves, braids, curls and chignons, the styling team (led by stylist Michelle Swiney) styled hair with the shampoos, conditioners and styling products from the Design Essentials professional line sold at JC Penney salons, ULTA and salons across the country. Here, a shapely sideswept style is detailed with a vintage-inspired hair ornament…making it a coif that looks just as beautiful coming or going!
