When it comes to your wedding day, every detail matters – including your big day hair do. Whether you’ve got long locks or a short crop, there’s plenty you can do with your hair.
With so many options for bridal hair this summer, we thought we’d take you through a visual journey of hairstyles in today’s blog. From the classic bun, to more unique braided styles – we’re sure you’ll find the perfect style for you!
1. Side sweep
For a touch of Hollywood glam, sleep all your hair over to one side and secure with a pretty flower or jewelled clip.
2. Ivy crown
A great alternative to the bold floral crown is the more natural, earthy, ivy crown.
3. High pony
Go bouffant with a high ponytail created with volume at the front and in the body of your hair.
4. Face-framing short curls
Add a romantic and elegant touch to your bob with curls, a side parting and an Alice band.
5. Boho bun
Add a hippy touch to your bun with loose waves and side braids.
6. Braided top knot
Add some visual interest and pretty detail to your up-do with a braid running up the back of your hair to your bun.
7. Classic side bun
Go bold and beautiful with a classic, voluminous low side bun.
8. Veiled beauty
Opt for something simple and beautiful – loose, long waves and a traditional veil.
9. Loose tendrils
For an elegant and romantic finish to your up-do, allow a few loose tendrils to frame your face.
10. Fabulous fishtail
A fishtail braid is a unique way to show off the length of your locks, while keeping your hair out of the way and looking pretty.
11. Big and bouffant
Make your up-do all about the height – think beehive with lots of backcombing – a great look for sophisticated, sultry Bardot style.
12. 20’s finger waves
Team your Gatbsy-style gown with tight finger waves. You could also add a sparkly slide or comb for an extra special finishing touch.
13. Low pony
Who said you couldn’t wear the classic pony on your wedding day?
14. Jewelled fishtail
Perfect for girls with heavy, bouncy hair, a bold fishtail plait can be accessorised with a jewelled slide or sparkles running down the braid.
15. Bohemian bride
Wear your long, wavy hair loose and place a headpiece over perfectly centre-parted hair for a glamorous and unique look.
16. Half up and down
Add a chic touch to this classic style with face framing flicks, volume and a pretty comb at the back of your hair.
17. Twisted chignon
Whether you’re going for the elegant look, or looking to create 20’s style with your longer locks, the twisted chignon is sure to impress. Don’t forget a detailed side Alice band to balance out the look.
18. Crown bun
Wear your bun high and place a veil beneath the base of it.
19. French braid halo
For a pretty, feminine look, and to keep your hair off your face, French braid your hair around your head like a halo headband.
20. Braided headband
To add a natural, romantic touch to your up-do, why not plait the front section of your hair to form a braid headband?
21. Sleek with a birdcage veil
Get out those straighteners and that smoothing cream for a super sleek, chic look, accentuated by a 50’s style birdcage veil.
22. Elegant top knot
Add a twist to the classic top knot with a loose side parting and a pretty jewelled comb.
23. Flower crowned beauty
For a boho look, style your hair with loose waves and add a bold flower crown to your head.
24. Ballerina bun
Sleek, classic and beautiful. Sometimes a simple, high bun is all you need.
25. Short and cute
Adding a simple accessory, such as a floral clip, to your short hair will add an extra special touch. Don’t forget to frame your face with a few loose waves too!
26. Vintage vixen
Add a touch of glam to your long locks with big waves and a side parting, accentuated by a jewelled vintage comb.
27. Waterfall braid
Simple and chic, the waterfall braid is an easy way to add some pretty style to your loosely waved locks.
28. French twist
For a sophisticated, glamorous look, opt for the French twist – an elegant up-do made for special occasions.
29. Braided bun
Be inspired by the feminine braid with a headband braid and a fully braided bun.
30. Floral halo
For a softer alternative to the floral crown, why not create a floral halo by pinning small flowers strategically in and around your up-do.
