Cherry Blow Dry Bar’s MariLynne Cosmillo discusses The Top Three Bridal Hair Trends for 2018 Published on bellanyc.com A bride’s wedding day is one of the most important days of her life, so who wants to settle for a hair style that’s anything less than picture perfect?  Cherry Blow Dry Bar , one of the fastest growing dry bar chains in the country, is the perfect place for brides to get their hair styled for the big day. MariLynne Cosmillo, Cherry Blow Dry Bar’s Director of Education, shares the top 3 trends they are seeing this season. Many of these looks were inspired by Meghan Markle (I mean, whose jaw didn’t drop as she walked down the aisle?!). MariLynne said, “I think that her style is a direct reflection of how most brides are wearing their hair these days: natural. Little definition with more focus on the overall shape and style that reflect the bride’s personality.” Check out some of these amazing looks that has left us speechless! 1.   Braid & Chignon Mix (featured image).  This has evolved from the trendy crown braid a few years ago to something a bit more wearable. This loosely pulled braid and chignon mix is one of the most requested hairstyle looks. 2 .  Understated Accessories:  Move over flower crowns and big head pieces, understated hair accessories give a touch of sparkle without overshadowing the overall look. 3. Barely There Waves:  Bridal trends have evolved from bouncy-curls to a more natural look, which pair perfectly with brides who want to showcase their own personal style.Top 3 bridal hair trends for 2018 according to this nationwide blow dry bar Find the full article: here
