Bridal Beauty Trends for 2022
True Beauty Company has the inside scoop on
the hottest bridal beauty trends for 2022.
New year, new trends! Each year, working in the bridal industry, we see a wave of new popular looks that will set the trend for that year. In both hair and makeup, these trends play into the overall theme of the bride’s wedding as well as their individual style.
In 2021 the absolute most requested hottest hairstyle was old hollywood glam waves. We also saw the start of the natural makeup trend where makeup was all about light, fresh skin with an emphasis on lashes over a dark heavy eye and prominent contour.
In previous years, there has been a major wave in the “boho” styles that appeared to be “messier” and more un-done over a more sleek style. Braids were the top requested accessory to add to most of our styling. But 2022 is bringing some big changes in trends and we are here for it!

Our biggest 2022 trend that we’re already starting to see in our trials is a more formal, clean, smooth, well put together updo. We are seeing a lot of simple buns paired with a classic, statement bridal gown and have already had many True Beauty brides that completely stole the show with this look!
Paired perfectly with this style of updo, another hot trend for 2022 is dainty pearls! Placed effortlessly in an updo as the perfect accent as well as being worn as jewelry, on bridal gowns and even on veils!

Along with a simple, clean updo approach comes simple clean makeup looks! I’m talking about a light shimmer on the lids paired with a light, fluttery lash. Fresh, barely there base makeup with a flush of blush on the cheeks and a natural sheen to the cheekbones. Naturally fluffed brows and a glossy, “your lips but better” color to top off the look!

Another top trend that is being continued into 2022 is the iconic Kim K wedding hairstyle with the sleek, pulled back front pieces, a middle part and glam waves in the back with lots of volume! This hairstyle is definitely one that seems to circle through the industry through the years and is a classic, timeless look!

Speaking of curls, another trend carrying over from 2021 is the classic, just curls look rather than the previous popular loose waves. This look is one that we often like to recommend to brides as a more comfortable style. For brides that aren’t used to seeing themselves with a more formal look, this option gives more comfort having your hair just down framing your face and also leaves the statement to be made with your dress!
Custom, individual lashes on just the outer corners is a recent trend we are seeing sweep over the bridal industry. Instead of a full strip lash, you use what lashes you already have with the addition of a little outer flare!
Paired perfectly with that, we’re seeing glossy lips everywhere! Whereas a matte lip stain used to be the go-to, a slightly deeper lip liner for definition with a juicey, pigmented gloss is the look in 2022!
