We go back to the altar, and we do it in the best way. Brides 2022 (that Forbes estimated to be around 2.6 million this year) are not just any brides: they are women who have had, in most cases, to postpone their marriage for quite a while due to a pandemic. I’m bride-to-be that, if on the one hand they have had more time to choose not only the perfect dress but also the beauty look that follows, on the other hand they are even more eager, after a long wait, that every detail is impeccable, starting with the tip of the hair.
At the moment, among the famous trend topics regarding hairstyle and makeup to go to the wedding, the most clicked and studied is that of the new bride Nicholas Peltz, absolutely perfect on the day of her wedding with Brooklyn Beckham: for her a very studied and refined look that winked at one of the most iconic supermodels in history, that is Claudia Schiffer. The actress showed off a semi-collected hairstyle with the parting in the middle and the gently scaled curtain bangs, accompanied by a natural make-up. The result? I know Nineties and very cool.
Boom of semi-collected and decorated hairstyles
Staying on the subject of hairstyle, it must be said that the semi-crop for brides is among the strongest trends of the moment among the Italians. According to Matrimonio.com this versatile and romantic hairstyle continues to be brides’ favorite look for their big day even in 2022. While loose hair with flowers is the second most choice, the real news is the hairstyle embellished with beads, rhinestones and Swarovski, much appreciated because it is able to give light to the hairstyle and, in general, to the bridal look. Even according to the wedding planners interviewed for the Top Wedding Trends Report “Clasps filled with bright crystals are the upcoming trend.”
The accessory also plays a strategic role in the new collection Hair Couture 2022 The Chess Bride of Compagnia della Bellezza. For the famous hair designer Salvo Filetti this is a real match with the bride-to-be in which the strategies change because the needs of the woman change, depending on the role she wants to assume, also supporting her own emotions and personality. You can therefore choose to be Bishop, Rook, Horse. Or Regina.
Each of the wonderful hairstyles declined by type is enriched from time to time with fresh flowers carefully chosen, used in very few quantities and only in certain hairstyles.
There may be precious ribbons which, as if suspended in a journey through time, become architectural motifs or sublimate vintage and classic volumes of a Greek divinity. Or you can choose river pearls, precious stones, amethysts, Swaroski, that meet in combs and lianas created by the inspiration of skilled artisan hands to embellish and spread light through the hair with new royalty.
Unmissable for the bride-to-be then an exclusive event: on May 3 from 5.30 pm, in fact, in all the salons that have joined the initiative, not only in the Compagnia della Bellezza franchises, there will be the opportunity for customers to participate in a live presentation to see the hairstyles and interact with Salvo Filetti. And it will be the customers who ask their hairstylists to participate in the event.
Bridal makeup: between nude, gloss Y2K and glow
On the bridal make-up front, always according to marriage.com instead triumph the smokey nude. Brides want to enhance their natural beauty and for this reason effortless make-up is the favorite of 35.8% of brides in Italy. The top trend, however, is the smokey nude, much appreciated also by French and Spanish brides who, together with the Brazilian ones, are those who dare more by choosing a red lip make-up, while the make-up for a luminous glow effect skin is chosen by the 21.4% of those who marry in Brazil. The use of glitter and beaded details in bridal make-up it is an emerging but growing trend, which gives a touch of fantasy to the look.
“Compared to previous years there is a desire for light and lightness but above all for “truth“. Future brides do not want to appear “different” and are much more aware and determined », explains Francesca Ragone, make-up artist, hairstylist, lookmaker, founder of the Beyouty brand and creator of the Look Therapy® method. The expert tells us about the strongest makeup trends now: «Certainly the diffusion of the color scheme has increased the demand for a make-up made according to the“ friendly colors ”. Land brides want to shine and a personalized palette based on the color scheme but also and above all to the personality is certainly an excellent starting point for a radiant result. Always in relation to the search for true beauty, the make-up bases with a natural effect that reveal the texture of the skin, perhaps with freckles in evidence, are much loved by future brides. For this type of look I always recommend preparing the skin with a personalized skincare that makes it luminous and ready to welcome make-up, and to use modular products to cover discolorations only where needed “.
Finally, focus on the eyes or the lips? “The lips come back in evidence, defined and drawn slightly outside the natural contour for a plumping but natural effect. By popular demand, glosses with greedy colors such as strawberry, cherry, peach, caramel are back. The mat leaves room for satin and soft lipsticks, for a fresh and luminous effect even in spite of a shorter duration. But, in this case, it will be enough to remedy it with a quick retouch during the day to always be in order. Having said that, the only real “trend” that I recommend following is what you really want, perhaps with the help of the right professional ».
