Choosing the perfect Melbourne wedding hair and makeup styles can be hard, but there are so many fabulous Melbourne wedding suppliers to help you out.

As a bride, you’ll be faced with so many options and ideas when it comes to Melbourne wedding hair and makeup styles. This can be as challenging a decision as choosing your wedding flowers or photographer.

Deciding what hair and makeup style to go with for your Melbourne wedding takes time. Many brides just let their makeup artist decide and hope for the best. While I think it’s a great idea to trust the professionals, there’s nothing wrong with having some ideas yourself.

Below are some lovely wedding hair and makeup ideas that you can incorporate for your special day.

Hair Styles for your Melbourne Wedding

Melbourne Wedding Hair and Makeup Styles

Side Part

Brides who choose this style don’t have to worry about length or texture. A side part works great with all kinds of hair. It is also not hard to do and is great for brides who want a soft, romantic look. It can also be styled to make you look feminine or chic.

Front Braid

Front braids are great for brides who have short hair. You can have the front of your hair braided and then pin it to the back of your head. This keeps it off your face and ensures that you can focus on having fun.

Back Pin

Pinning your hair back can be such a lifesaver for brides with short hair. It’s the perfect way to get a soft and feminine look. All you have to do is pin it loosely and you’re good to go.

Hair and Make up Styles for your Melbourne Wedding

Get A Messy Bun

Messy buns are fantastic for brides who are having an informal celebration with lots of partying. If your hair is of medium length, this could be the one for you too. It works beautifully if you have a minimalist or less formal gown. 

The Low Chignon

Brides with long hair love this style because it is easy but elegant. You can also switch this style up a bit with different additions. Some brides like to add some braids to give their style a gorgeous bohochic feel.

A Glam Ponytail

Brides who want to highlight their gorgeous makeup can try this style. It’s a great way to show off your long hair too. It’s also very practical and will keep your hair out of the way as you enjoy your special day.


Makeup Styles for your Melbourne Wedding


Melbourne Wedding Hair and Makeup Styles

Go Classic

Classic makeup will always be an excellent option for a Melbourne wedding. It is elegant, timeless and magical. To achieve this look, you’ll need to work with velvety makeup for your eyes and use good quality, long-lasting makeup. Complete this with your favourite lipstick and you’ll look get the perfect bridal look.

Try Neutral

One thing that brides and makeup artists love about natural makeup is that it lasts for a long time. You might not even need a retouch for your reception. To get this look, begin with a good base, neutral eyeshadow and strong brows. Pair that with light sculpting and a nude lip and you’re good to go.

Vintage Bridal Makeup

This look is great if you’ve chosen this wonderful theme for your wedding. Get a glamorous look of yesteryear by using full lashes and winged eyeliner. Pair this with soft pink or bold red lipstick and you’ll nail the retro or vintage look.

Go All Out Dramatic

I’m talking smoky eyes, thick lashes, and great contouring. Brides having a glam wedding will love this style. To get the ideal look, try to focus on either your lips or your eyes. Doing both could be an overkill.

Be Bold

One makeup detail is key to this look – the red lip. This timeless bold choice is sure to stand out and have guests complimenting your look the entire day. Fantastic for any wedding style, but especially formal or modern weddings.

The Perfect Beach Wedding Makeup

They key to this fun but gorgeous look is using your illuminating primer and bronzer well. You want to achieve that sun-kissed look that will stand out in all your wedding photos. Combine this with nude lipstick and lip gloss for the perfect fun bride at the beach look.

The Boho-Chic Bridal Look

The concept of the Boho-chic bride is to keep things natural and fun so you’ll need to do same with your makeup. Start by getting your skin primed with an illuminator for a glowing base.

Next, you need to highlight the high points of your face and then add a hint of sparkle. Pair this with a rose-coloured lipstick.


Of Course…

Your best bridal look is a combination of a great hairstyle and fabulous makeup. So, feel free to choose from any of the above for your big day and experiment beforehand. If possible, work with a style that you already know suits you and have a hair and makeup trial.
