Winter weddings go hand in hand with some of the most beautiful bridal fashion and beauty looks. From soft colors, velvets and crystal embellishments, to ivory, lush and romantic fabrics, this season is all about luxury and elegance. One of the key beauty elements to pull together a complete bridal look is a gorgeous hairstyle. And if you’re a wedding guest you’ll also need to make sure your hair stands out at the event.
Wedding Guest Hairstyles: 42 The Most Beautiful Ideas
One of the most stunning wedding guest hairstyles is a soft wavy updo that’s perfect for long tresses. This hairstyle looks smooth and sophisticated, while still looking beautiful and bold at the same time. For a strong, romantic look, pair a sweeping updo with an intricate headpiece or a romantic veil to complete the look. If you’re opting for a boho vibe, try a big and beautiful top knot, which is a no-fuss way to keep tresses out of the way. Tease the top knot for extra volume and texture, and complete the look with lots of loose pieces framing the face. If you’d prefer something a little more sculpted, ditch the top knot and try a fishtail braid, a french twist or a sleek low bun. Add a touch of femininity in the form of some accessories like flowers, beads, barrettes or a bit of sparkle. All of these will add sophistication and elegance to any wedding guest hairstyle.
Create Soft Waves with Parted Hair
Adding soft wavy curls to your part is a great way to add some romance and glamour to any look. Whether you keep your hair parted in the middle or side, the key to creating soft waves is to take the ends of your hair and twist them into large soft curls. Secure these with hair pins and leave them to cool. Once the curls have cooled and set, remove the pins and gently brush through them with a wide-toothed comb, creating beautiful — volume-boosting — hair waves.
Romantic Curls for Weddings
A romantic half-updo is perfect for a winter wedding and is also easy to create at home. Make sure you have your tools and styling products ready. Begin by curling the lower half of your hair with a styling iron, rolling the curlers away from your face. Keep curls separated so that each one is well defined once cooled. Pin up the top half of your hair and add additional detail such as a plait or a buzz-cut, depending on the effect you want. Once your hairstyle is finished, lightly brush through the curls with a paddle brush to make sure they’re soft and fluffy.
Boho Chic for Weddings
The addition of a messy and creative boho top knot is a great way to style your tresses for a winter wedding, or really any time of year. Start by teasing the crown of your hair and twist it up into a top knot. Secure in place with a few pins. Add lots of volume and definition to the top knot by backcombing at the base. Create a few loose pieces to frame the face, or a few highlights at the bottom of the braid. Finish by adding some decorative hairspray, small sparkly adornments, or flowers to match your winter wedding look.
