Tying the Knot This spring and summer, traditional and modern brides will both be making statements when they walk down the aisles. Experts weigh in on the top trends in hair, makeup and nails.

Nails for less traditional brides can be on trend with fashion. “Modern brides are obviously more high-fashion conscious and willing to be adventurous with their styling,” says Marek Hartwig, owner and artistic director of Marek Bridal Styling and member of Cosmetologists Chicago. “Runway and red carpet styles are prominent in uences.” For brides who want to wear their “something blue” on their ngernails without being too ashy, Zoya offers a creamy light shade appropriately called Blu; for a touch of shimmer try Barbados Blue from Essie; and for an all-out bright hue go for China Glaze’s Bahamian Escape. 68 American Salon April 2013 LEFT AND BELOW: Modern brides can add an edgy feeling to updos with this spiked comb or oral headband, both from E.
