No wedding dress is complete without the right hair and makeup to finish the look. And whether you're newly engaged or have hair and makeup trials on the horizon, all the beauty inspiration you need was spotted at Spring 2019's Bridal Fashion Week.

Similar to the wedding dress trends of the season, royals were on the mind when it came to hair. From Theia to Romona Keveza, the hair accessory of choice was the iconic tiara atop regal chignons—and it didn't stop there. Classic was the name of the (hair) game at Monique Lhuillier and Amsale, while barely-there makeup reigned supreme at Watters and Lela Rose. (We spy some potential hair and makeup inspo for Meghan Markle's big day!)

On the other end of the spectrum, it was all about being bold and embracing your inner rock star with statement-making beauty looks you can't miss. Case in point: The faux-hawks and metallic makeup at Naeem Khan. Other standouts include the sleek ponytails and silver lids at Berta, boho hair at Reem Acra, and vivid flower crowns at Wtoo by Watters.

Bridal Fashion Week certainly didn't disappoint when it came to hair and makeup, and there's a beauty trend for every kind of bride. Keep scrolling to see the can't-miss bridal beauty trends from Spring 2019's Bridal Fashion Week.
