Soft, loose hairstyles, whether styled into ponytails, relaxed chignons, or a sophisticated textured French pleat, offer beautiful winter bridal hairstyle options.

Redken Session Stylist Giovanni Giuntoli is well-known for creating beautiful winter bridal hairstyles to compliment any gorgeous gown.

To compliment lavish bridal gowns, Giovanni Giuntoli focused on a soft feminine apporach to the hair to spotlight the beautifully bare shoulders and detailed designs of the bridal gowns.

He also said “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.”

Elegant Approach To The Classic Ponytail

A classic bridal hairstyle is a "soft, but elegant approach to the classic ponytail" said Giuntoli.

At a previous Amsale bridal gown show, Giuntoli created a gorgeous hairstyle with a soft focus and approach.
