Wedding Hairstyle Ideas to Bring With You to Your Trial

  • There are plenty of wedding hairstyles for brides to choose from.
  • Wedding hairstyles for short hair can be just as fun as those for long hair.
  • No matter your bridal style, there are options out there to make you feel special on your big day.

When people think of wedding planning, the first things that likely come to mind are the venue, dress, and flowers, but it's important to give attention to the tiny beauty details, too. From your wedding nails to your bridal makeup to your wedding hairstyle, there's a lot to consider.

Whether you just got engaged or the big day is fast approaching, it never hurts to do a little research on wedding hairstyles. Choosing the right look can be stressful, but thankfully, there are plenty of options to pick from. Naturally, you want to look like yourself, but also the best version of that. You'll want to take into consideration your natural hair type, as well as the length of your hair and the overall vibe of your wedding.

If doesn't matter if you have short hair, medium-length hair, or long hair, you'll have plenty of chic looks to choose from. Updo wedding hairstyles are a popular choice for spring and summer events or anywhere with a warmer climate, as they keep you cool and help reduce the risk of frizz. If you prefer to wear your hair down, though, you have possibilities outside of just your standard loose curls. By utilising bobby pins and other hair accessories, you can dress up a simple wedding hairstyle in seconds.

Wedding Hairstyle Ideas

Some classic choices include half-up, half-down hairstyles; side-parted curls; and braids, which pair well with traditional ceremonies and garden parties alike. However, if your bridal mood is more modern — for instance, you're having your reception at a restaurant or maybe even eloping at City Hall — you may want to consider trying one of the biggest hairstyle trends of the year. This can be a bubble ponytail, a slicked-back supermodel bun, or a braided ponytail.

You don't necessarily need to enlist the help of an entire glam squad on your big day if you don't want to. The internet is filled with tutorials for easy wedding hairstyles. If you're going the route of hiring a bridal hairstylist, oftentimes, they'll offer a trial ahead of the big day for you to test out your potential hair look. This is a great opportunity to play with different options.
