Say 'I Do' to These Perfect Wedding Hairstyles for A Happily Ever After

Waterfall Braid with Flowerswaterfall-braid

A waterfall braid has a pretty, bohemian vibe that seems to pair well with outdoor weddings. Adorning it with flowers like baby's breath or small daisies elevates this chic bridal hairstyle while exchanging vows. Cascading curls are a gorgeous complement to the waterfall braid, which is why our Classic Curling Wand is a must-have tool for perfecting this look. For even more natural-looking curls (depending on the level of flower child you would like to go), we'd recommend our Classic Curling Wand Pearl.

 

Loosely Twisted Updo

Weddings don't have to mean elaborate bouffant updos or tight buns. A loosely twisted updo (or chignon) is a subtle but elegant bridal hairstyle. Gently twisting or rolling two small sections from either side of the face and pulling them into the back adds another romantic dimension to this one. As London hairstylist and makeup artist Nicola Beddoes explains in this Instagram post, what's chic about the loose twist updo is that it's all about texture. The hold is in that texture, not in massive amounts of firm hold hairspray. A good blowout followed by curling or straightening, along with a texturizing agent that adds grip. Our Fresh N' Fab Dry Shampoo Aerosol is enough to maintain this updo from ceremony to send off.

 

Old Hollywood Glam Curls with Bling

Old Hollywood themed weddings always seem to enhance the romance. There's a lot to work with, especially when it comes to clothes and hair. We love actress-inspired big waves with one side accessorized with something diamond-esque (doesn't have to be the real deal, but you get our drift). Achieving old school movie star curls usually requires a larger barrel curling wand with maximum hold, something along the lines of our Magic Curling Wand with a 32mm barrel. The side with the bling (bride's choice, of course) will need to be slick and set, so some hairspray like our Freeze Please Finishing Spray may be in order. Ensure that all frizz is tamed before blow-drying with a smoothing serum like the NuMe Sleeky in a Bottle Serum.

 

Textured Chignon

You could also call this the "criss-cross chignon," or perhaps, "the hair on hair on hair." Regardless, it's far from your plain ole' low bun and definitely "I do" appropriate. It's more than a bun but not quite a braid. A good stylist should be able to master this and, if it is preferred, lightly accessorize. It's elaborate but certainly not high-maintenance when completed. For the ultimate hold and shine, a product that does both is certainly required. We'd recommend our Hottie Alert Shine Hairspray to keep this unique 'do in place.

 

Long 'n Loose

There is nothing wrong with wanting to do simple hair on your wedding day. Celebs seem to be sporting the long, effortless look for their big day a lot lately. Katherine Schwarzenegger kept her stylish wedding hair loose and elegant at her recent wedding to Chris Pratt, and country star Brett Young's bride, Taylor Mills, showcased a beautiful yet uncomplicated mane at their summer ceremony. If you want straight, sleek hair for that lifetime set of photos, we say go for it. Our Megastar Hair Straightener is perfect for going the extra mile for wedding day strands.

 

Those are some wedding looks that are making us swoon right now. One search of the hashtag #weddinghairstyles will make anyone want to book a church and start DIYing party favors.

If there’s one complaint curly-haired people have, it’s that their curls just don’t stay put. They may use rollers or curling irons to ensure each curl is perfectly perky, but it seems as if as soon as they turn around….
