There’s not much that Royston Blythe and Nick Malenko don’t know about a fabulous celebrity wedding and tending to the tresses of society, celebrity and all their gorgeous brides is a wonderful perk of the job according to the award-winning duo.
Here, we get the low down on their very favourite brides, products and top wedding hair tips!
Favourite Celebrity Bride?
For drama and high impact, Dita Von Teese is the only choice. What an incredible statement: her hair and Vivienne Westwood gown are the most sensational combination!
For the ultra-romantic, feminine and dreamy style that so many brides opt for, Poppy Delevingne’s unstructured, soft and natural vintage waves are fabulous and compliment her custom-made Chanel Haute Couture dress perfectly.
Worst Ever Bridal Hair?
Princess Diana was such an incredible and iconic woman but sadly, her wedding hair was a complete disaster. A real disappointment for such a beautiful princess.
What are the hair necessities that every bride should consider?
Wind, rain, heat and humidity all play havoc with your hair and whether you’re marrying on a beach in Barbados, your venue is a marquee on a field in the Cotswolds on a rainy day or you’re in a beautiful castle on a windy Scottish mountainside, if you struggle with frizzy and unruly hair, your best bridal investment would be a smoothing treatment. At Royston Blythe, we LOVE Kerastraight which guarantees 4 months of glossy, healthy, frizz-free and manageable hair. This investment is ideal for carefree honeymoon hair too!
Lightly spritz a gloss spray over your tresses at regular intervals throughout the day to ensure a perfectly smooth, long-lasting even luster with mirror-like shine for a couture finish.
KEEP IT IN PLACE
Hairspray is an absolute essential – we love Kérastase Laque Couture Hairspray for banishing flyaways and ensuring hair stays in place.
A dry shampoo is a must for styles that are more structured. We love L’oreal TECHNIART Super Dust for volume updo hairstyles and to make backcombing easier. Also essential for the morning after!
What is your favourite Bridal Hair Trend?
Go Floral ”There is nothing more fabulous than a summer wedding and working with beautiful, fresh flowers in the hair creates high impact and drama” Freshly picked blooms add character to a theme, they add romance and interest and will make a significant style statement for every bride. For a soft and über romantic bridal hair, embrace the ‘floppy’ and ethereal blown roses or take inspiration from the Marchesa Notte runway at New York Fashion Week and opt for a statement Floral Crown. Braid Away Designer Hayley Paige set a mystical cast over bridal looks this season and romantic, unkempt, wild braids were born.
