Gorgeous Wedding Day Hairstyles Ideas

Your hair is a very personal thing, you know how you like to have it and what makes you feel better in yourself. Everyone wants to feel confident and beautiful on their wedding day and your hairstyle can play a big part in this. It can be a struggle deciding which specific look to go for especially knowing that you will be looking back at these photos for the rest of your life.


If you have no clue what to choose then try thinking about what would work best with the atmosphere of your day, both the front and back of your dress and of course, your overall comfort. To assist you, we have put together a list of our favourite wedding day hairstyles and we guarantee that there is something here for everyone.


Low Chignon Bun


This is the perfect classic hairstyle if you’re wanting an effortlessly chic look. There are many variations to this elegant hairstyle, you can opt for a classic tucked under look or a more modernised knotted style. Either way, it is one of the most feminine hairstyles you could choose. You can guarantee that this style will compliment a satin ballgown and will look beautiful under any kind of veil.


Messy Romantic Updo


This perfectly imperfect hairstyle is one of our favourites and would work perfectly for a boho or vintage style of wedding. Most people choose to accessories this hairstyle with either fresh flowers, hair slides or various hairpins, this way you can have that balance of a soft romantic look with the accessory elevating it for your wedding day.


Many people think that because they have short or thin hair then this style simply isn’t an option for them, but this just isn’t the case! Your hairdresser will easily be able to use a simple clip in hair piece to provide you with more length and volume. Choosing to have looser buns, tousled curls and soft waves around your face can also beautifully frame your cheekbones and jawline drawing attention to the eyes in the most effortless way.


Effortless Soft Curls


If you wear your hair down the majority of the time and this is how you feel comfortable then there is no reason why you shouldn’t have your hair down on your wedding day too. You can’t go wrong with beautiful soft curls, they always look beautiful and an experienced stylist can help ensure that this hairstyle holds up all day. Our top tip is to use hair extensions when you’re going to have your hair down for a long time as they are much more resilient to heat and humidity and hold curl better than your natural hair.


Half-Up Half-Down


A half-up half-down hairstyle will give you the best of both worlds on your wedding day, you can feel comfortable with your hair flowing over your shoulders, but not be worried about your hair keep falling into your face as a bulk of the weight will be tied up.


This is one of the most popular wedding hairstyles for brides on their big day. The Duchess Of Cambridge chose a half up half down hairstyle when she tied the knot with Prince William back in in 2011. The style works for all kinds of weddings and you can opt for a loose crown braid for a relaxed boho vibe or a half French twist for a more formal look.


Effortless Fishtail Braid


Our last dream wedding day hairstyle is a fishtail braid, if there's one thing short, long, curly and straight hair all have in common, it's that they all look incredible with a braid. We all wish that we could perfectly braid our own hair and we have definitely spent hours at home trying, it takes some serious effort to master braiding your own hair so take advantage of your wedding day hairdresser and choose this intricate style.


A fishtail braid will look perfect from morning to night and you won’t have to worry about taking thousands of pins out at the end of the evening (you could even sleep in this style and wake up to beautiful waves!). Our top tip would be to decorate this stunning braid with fresh flowers such as daisies, freesias or gypsophila. Ask your florist and they will be able to provide you with something that works beautifully with your bouquet.
