It's summer, and wedding season is here! A cherished and significant milestone in one's life, it gives brides the perfect opportunity to express themselves through hair and makeup, and enhance their stunning beauty as they walk down the altar.
In 2023, wedding hairstyles are taking center stage, showcasing an array of breathtaking and innovative options for brides. From classic updos to romantic braids, from glamorous curls to sleek, modern styles, the possibilities seem endless.
This year, the focus is on personal expression, individuality, and embracing one's natural beauty. And we are here for it! If you are excited just as we are, let's take a look at our carefully curated selection of wedding hairstyles for women in 2023.
Whether you envision a timeless and elegant look or crave a contemporary and unique statement, we have gathered inspiration to suit every bride's taste and preference.
First on our list of stunning wedding hairstyles for women is this beautiful waterfall braid with flowers. It 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.
Wedding hairstyles for women: 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 themed weddings always seem to enhance the romance,that's why this one is among our favorite wedding hairstyles for women this year.
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. You can choose the best accessories from our stunning collection.
Ensure that all frizz is tamed before blow-drying with a smoothing serum like the NuMe Sleeky in a Bottle Serum.
Next on our list of perfect wedding hairstyles for women this year is this stunning beauty which will make you feel like a real princess.
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.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to do simple hair on your wedding day - in fact, simple is often better, that's why we couldn't help ourselves but add this one on our list of wedding hairstyles for women this year.
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.

There are endless wedding hairstyles for women, so how can you choose one that complements the shape and features of your face?
Start by determining the shape of your face, from the proportions of your forehead and cheekbones to your jawline - common face shapes include oval, round, square, heat and diamond.
Next, look for hairstyles that complement your face shape. For example, oval faces can pull off a variety of hairstyles, while round faces may take advantage of hairstyles that add height or length to create the illusion of a more elongated face.
In addition, pay attention to your facial features, such as your eyes, nose, and lips. Certain hairstyles can accentuate or downplay specific features. For instance, an updo can highlight your eyes and cheekbones, while loose curls can soften your jawline.
Remember, the goal is to find a wedding hairstyle that not only flatters your face shape and features but also makes you feel radiant and comfortable on your special day. Collaborate with a skilled hairstylist, trust your instincts, and embrace the beauty that uniquely defines you.
Before choosing accessories, decide on the type of hairstyle you want for your wedding day. Certain accessories may work better with specific hairstyles, so it's important to have a vision in mind.
Whether you opt for an updo, half-up, or fully down hairstyle, consider how the accessories will complement and enhance the chosen style.
Once you've researched enough wedding hairstyles for women and selected the one that fits your vision the best, you can hop to our NuMe shop to find some amazing accessories for your memorable day.
We recommend to start planning your wedding hairstyle several months in advance - this way, you will have enough time to find a hairstylist that can achieve your desired look.
