One of the most important elements of a wedding day is the bride’s look. From the dress, to the accessories and makeup, to the hairstyle – it’s all part of her perfect day. A great wedding hairstyle can really complete the look, and the options are nearly endless. Brides can go for the classic buns, mix it up with fishtails and braids, go for glamorous curls, or keep it simple with a sleek updo. Whatever the look, having a long hair provides lots of possibilities for bridal hairstyles.
The classic bun updo is a timeless favorite, with many variations to fit any bride’s look. For a classic bridal bun, simply gather the hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck, and wrap the hair around itself until you’ve created the bun. Secure with bobby pins and add jewelry or accessories as desired. To give a traditional bun a twist, you can incorporate braids, twists, or textured loops. For a modern look, consider braiding the front or sides of the hair and gathering it into a low bun at the nape of the neck.
For a romantic, ethereal look, consider half-up, half-down hairstyles. This style is a great way to show off curls while still keeping the hair out of the face. Simply comb and curl the hair, then half it. Tie up the top section, use bobby pins to secure any pieces if needed, and add jewelry or accessories to the top. If desired, you can braid the bottom half or leave it natural for an effortless look.
Soft curls will always make a statement. This romantic, yet modern look can give a soft and delicate flair. To achieve this look, curl your hair with a curling iron, and let the curls cool so they keep their form. Then, tousle the hair gently with your fingers to loosen them, and add some hairspray to make sure they keep their shape. If desired, you can also braid the hair in the front or sides as an accessory to the curls.
Although updos have been a wedding staple for years, there are still many ways to mix them up and make them unique. For instance, looped updos are a modern twist to classic updos. Secure the layers together with bobby pins, leave the ends out for a natural yet voluminous updo, or roll them up to the side, creating a twisted bun at the back that is sure to draw attention. Accessorize with flowers, jewelry, freshwater pearls, headbands and more!
Long hair can open up so many possibilities for bridal hairstyles – the only limit is your imagination! With a bit of practice and the right products, anyone can pull off the perfect wedding hairstyle. Experiment with accessories, textures, and styles to create a look that is truly unique and special. Whether you go for the classic bun or try something new, having long hair allows for lots of creativity and gorgeous hairstyles for your wedding day!
