Classic Wedding Updo
Sophisticated updos are always a popular choice, with curls and twists providing a desired bridal look, especially for more formal weddings.
This style is best for hair that is medium in length (chin length or longer) and is straight and medium to thick. If you have fine hair you might be able to create the updo by using a pin-on ponytail or add-on extension.
Bridal Hair Styles: Modern Wedding Updo
The modern updo takes the very formal classic updo and adds a softer, more romantic look.
This tousled style can be achieved with hair of all lengths and textures using tiaras, combs, or hairpins. A good hairdresser always helps too!
Wedding Day Tip:
Always be sure to bring along extra bobby pins in case some hair falls out. If you start to comb it or use more hair spray, you will likely make it worse!
Bridal Hair Styles: Leaving it Long
Another popular trend is to wear your hair down in a sleek shiny look – straight or with romantic curls. Pull your hair half back in a “half-updo” for a more formal look.
A classic headband style tiara may be chosen for simple elegance, while many brides choose just a veil. A traditional bridal look can be achieved by combining a graceful tiara or headband with an elegant wedding veil. The veil can be easily removed after the ceremony.
Bridal Hair Styles: Short Styles
Short Wedding Hair Style
Brides with short hair used to struggle with elegant and creative wedding day hairstyles, but no longer! Fun, sophisticated and unique looks can be achieved with the help of some simple accessories.
Short hair looks stunning in a soft bob that is highlighted with a tiara, headband, or jeweled barrette. A beautiful and timeless look for short bridal hair is hair that is accentuated with well placed finger or Marcel type of waves.
Bridal Hair Styles: Curly and Wavy Hair
Curly Wedding Hair Style
Brides and attendants with naturally curly or wavy hair can adopt any style. In some cases, they will need to temporarily straighten their curls first in order to re-create the look.
The Double Asian Knot and Simply Elegant Updo could also be created, in a modified form without any special straightening for naturally curly hair.
