Simple is often best for wedding day hairstyles, and that doesn’t mean your locks won’t shine – add an eye-catching hairpiece like this preserved flower crown or vine for extra shine! If you have long hair, ask your stylist to create a simple low chignon for an elegant yet classic look that matches almost every gown style. For added appeal, tuck braids or hair pieces into it for added drama.
Small twists add just the right touch of fanciness to any bridal updo. Add a chain or decorative string in an eye-catching color that complements or stands out against it all for an extra romantic effect. A French twist may appear daunting at first, but it becomes easy with just a bit of prep. Gather all your hair with one hand, using your non-dominant one to tighten and twist tightly before inserting bobby pins vertically or crosswise to secure their position. If the back of your dress makes quite an impression, try out a low and slightly undone updo like Beauty by Ramona’s. She added face-framing tendrils to her side part for added texture and an eye-catching hairpin to complete this chic style.
Braids are an effortless yet stunning way to elevate a classic top knot or ponytail, while messy rope braids tucked behind a bun are another stunning style for brides wearing long and flowing gowns. Additionally, this boho look works beautifully at garden-themed or beach weddings. If you want your hair to remain sleek and refined on your big day, use some volumizing mousse before combing through with a wide-tooth comb to smooth out any kinks – this method is beneficial if your locks are thin or delicate. Celebrate your natural texture for an effortless beauty look. A textured low bun or chignon, such as the one by Bethanie J Hair, can help brides with naturally curly and wavy locks achieve this look with minimal fuss. Add flower pins for an eye-catching finish.
At times, brides-to-be want to let it all hang loose. If your long, thick locks have long strands of hair, this relaxed yet voluminous style works beautifully to showcase effortless glamour – it could even be accented with an embellished hairpin for added sparkle! Braids are becoming an increasingly fashionable wedding-day look, particularly loose, messy braids. This trendy trend works beautifully for rustic, garden, boho beach, or desert weddings and pairs perfectly with large flower crowns to complete the ensemble. For an elegant affair, wear your hair back in a sleek low chignon for an eye-catching bridal style that frames your face beautifully and complements vintage-inspired hairpieces or floral crowns perfectly. Medium bob hair also works nicely, as seen here – as evidenced by this bride.
For an elegant yet casual wedding look, try a loose low bun. This easygoing style makes your sultry dress stand out while pairing well with floral accessories. Tighter types may add detail, such as braids or twists, to elevate their appearance. A sleek ponytail is another simple wedding hairstyle, combining polished looks from the front with long, luxurious locks at the back. Perfect for brides who have naturally straight strands or prefer more structured updos! Add an elegant bohemian-style touch by tucking flowers into your low chignon for a boho-chic finish. Twigs
