5 Casual Wedding Hairstyles

An elegant ponytail is the perfect look for casual weddings. To add some drama, add unique elements, such as braiding some of your locks or accessorizing with an eye-catching gold headband like this bride has done.

Add romantic appeal to any updo with flowers and foliage by tucking flowers and foliage into it for an effortlessly romantic look. Flowers add a pretty finishing touch, be it a classic chignon or messy twisty updo.

The half updo is an effective way to frame your face while keeping strands out of your eyes, yet it doesn’t require long locks to pull it off. Even short bobs can pull it off if styled correctly; cascading curls or simple ponytails are just two variations on this wedding hairstyle that can work beautifully. This bride chose to pin back her strands for a romantic style, highlighting her stunning features and sparkling headpiece. Loose face-framing strands may also help frame the neckline of your dress or highlight decolletage areas.

For extra volume when styling a half-up style, tease the crown section slightly before wrapping a 2-inch area around a clear elastic. Secure your elastic with a dime-sized amount of texturizing paste and spray to complete an eye-catching finish.

The bun is an effortless wedding hairstyle option versatile enough for any length or type of hair, as seen here on a bride by Flawless Bride. Your stylist should twist your tresses into a low bun at the base of your neck for an effortlessly undone effect – as this bride by Flawless Bride did. Have them pull out some face-framing strands for something simpler yet equally elegant. Add braids to your bun for an elaborate style. A low ponytail or crown braid can add structure and drama while keeping hair out of the way. For an additional romantic touch, try adding wildflower strands for a boho flair – perfect for beach or outdoor weddings or when wearing floral-themed attire!

The slicked-back hairstyle is a timeless classic that never goes out of style, making it the ideal choice for an effortlessly stylish look for brides. Comb forward and down, applying texturizing products such as gels and pomades for that wet-look feel. Make sure to add volume in the crown section by applying volumizing product, while using shine-enhancing oils and sprays to keep your style shining for as long as possible. Add side-swept bangs for a feminine take on the classic slicked-back style, or experiment with structured high ponytails or low buns for formal events. To finish this off, tuck some strands at the base of your neck and secure them with pins for an exquisite and polished finish.

The Hollywood Waves is an iconic red carpet hairstyle. Combining deep side partings with big soft curls and masses of shine, this romantic and seductive look creates an eye-catching effect that works equally well for casual summer weddings or boho destination ceremonies. To achieve this look, begin by cleansing and conditioning with your preferred products, using a heat protectant spray before blow drying it. Next, use volumizing mousse at the roots while detangling cream helps tame frizz at mid-lengths to ends for ultimate frizz control. Add loose strands of color for a Hollywood wave, then complete the look with a floral crown or flowers. For a more relaxed wedding, add a low ponytail for an effortlessly elegant style – you could dress this style up even more by embellishing it with ribbon, elastic ties, or gold headband accessories!
