Wedding Hairstyles for Long Hair
Whether you decide to let your luscious locks flow, or choose to have it styled up and away from your face, the options are endless when it comes to long hair. For a modern approach, a plait in the centre or off-centre accompanied by soft waves, creates an effortless look.
If it’s chic, sophistication you are after then consider a sleeked ponytail or brushed back low bun or chignon. These styles create a polished look, that is sure to compliment any type of wedding gown on the day.
Wedding Hairstyles for Short Hair
Think subtle waves and elegant up-do braids for the short to medium hair lengths. For the bold bride, the latter has the ability to lift your look quite literally. Complement its edginess with a daring smoky eye to achieve a dramatic air. If you prefer a more relaxed appearance that appears effortless then consider short silky waves to frame your face creating a fresh bridal look with an all over facial glow.
For a perfect blend of both vibes, opt for a loose yet graceful coiled bun instead of a tight up-do braid. And for those dreaming of class, feel inspired by a 1920s flapper hairstyle or modernise it with a front spiral curl.
Wedding Hairstyles for Straight Hair
For the brides with very straight hair, it is often tempting to try something new on your most magical day. This could mean a simple wavy look creating luscious locks or a timeless choice with the classic tight bun or a looser yet equally elegant alternative to amplify your facial features.
To entice the adventurous bride with long straight hair, consider a deep side part, sweeping the majority of hair to the side of your face. Add some soft curls to make a chic statement. However, for the brides who wish to stay true to themselves on their special day then do exactly that. Opt for a simple tuck behind the ear or a natural part for a gentle, elfin look.
Wedding Hairstyles for Curly Hair
For the brides eager to stay away from the hair straightener, charming curls can come in many forms. For the Shirley Temple’s among us, embrace the golden Hollywood age for all its glamour and sparkle with a deep side part.
If you have long curly hair and desire voluminous lustre for your special day then think deep barrel curls. And for the brides with curls and a fringe, consider a curled pony tail either flowing down your back or down one side to pull emphasis on your face-framing fringe.
Wedding Hairstyles for Layered Hair
A nod to the 90s, long layered hairstyles can be styled simply with loose or crimpled waves for a simple yet trendy effect. For short layers, try a fun tousled hairdo or an edgy choppy look to enhance texture and achieve a pixie style bob.
Be inspired by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton and spiral your layers at varying lengths for an all-round soft look. Or transform your face-framing layers into a wispy, feathery lob to express your earthy vibes.
