When it comes to bridal hair, “Balance is key to everything,” says Giuntoli. “Just because a dress is simple or the gown is elaborate doesn’t necessarily mean the hair has to be the exact same feel. Big gowns can work with simple hair and vice versa.”
At Amsale, the look was inspired by a soft approach: “The hair at Amsale had a soft but elegant approach to the classic ponytail,” said Giuntoli, while the undone chignon at Christos downplayed drama.
To compliment the detailed and intricate beading and fabrics of the Pool designs, Giuntoli created a classic French plait, but updated with slight texture and extra height at the crown of the head. In any case, there is plenty of choice for that special day.
