Your Guide To Wedding Hair

Read through our summer guide to wedding hair to find a look that’s right for you. If you have different elements you’re looking for, don’t be afraid to ask your stylist about combining different hairstyles! Just make sure you schedule an appointment with your hairstylist before your wedding day to make sure you’re happy with the final product.

Short Hair

Short hair doesn’t mean fewer options! Here are some of our favorite wedding hairstyles for shorter hair.

Let Your Curls Out

If you have short curly hair, leave your curls alone! Instead, add some extra curls to enhance the look, and make sure the way the curls fall frames your face.

Make it pop: If you’re letting your curls free, think about tucking a flower or sparkly pin behind your hair to add something extra.

Other hair options: The same can be true for other hair types. If your hair is naturally straight or wavy, opt for that natural look!


Blowouts never go out of style. If you have short hair, get a blowout and show off your natural hair.

Make it pop: Once you have your blowout looking spectacular, add real or fake flowers, some beautiful earrings, and a veil to complete the look.

Pixie Hair

Are you currently rocking a pixie cut? That just means you have to spend less time on your wedding hair! If you’re looking for color, get your hair dyed before the wedding. Otherwise, add a beaded or flower headdress and a veil for a look that’s wedding-perfect!

Medium Hair

If you have medium, chin- to shoulder-length hair, we have some amazing looks you could pick for your wedding day.

Stylish Updo

When it comes to an updo, your options are endless. You can add knots, twists, and buns to your hair for something that’s attractive but also out of your face for your special day.

Once you’ve decided your style, you can also decide how polished you want your hair to look. If you’re going for a carefree or relaxed feel, don’t worry about taming any loose hair or strands.  

Make it pop: Since your hair will be up around your head, pick a pair of stunning drop earrings that accentuate your neckline.

French Twist

A French twist might be a simple look, but the way they are executed can range from classic to messy or modern. It all depends on how you want your french twist to look. Keep all your hair in the twist or let your loose strands fall out for a more relaxed style. Then accent your hair however you want, whether it’s with a veil, fresh flowers, or a beautiful family heirloom.

Make it pop: Braid your hair first. Then twist that braid into a French twist for an intricate wedding hair look.

Low Bun

Tuck your hair into a low bun. Since your hair is shorter, let some pieces of hair fall out and frame your face. Add curls to those loose pieces of hair to add extra waves and help frame your face.  


Long Hair

If you have long hair, it can feel like you have endless options when it comes to wedding hair. The most important thing is to narrow down what type of hairstyle you’re looking for instead of feeling overwhelmed by your hair options.

Side Braid

Nothing is more beautiful than a long braid falling over your shoulder. With a braid, you can decide how tight or loose you want the braid to look. For a boho look, let some curls fall out and pull at the braid to loosen the knots.

Make it pop: You can add flowers or other accents to your braid that match the design of your dress or your wedding theme and color.  

Pony It Up

Since you have plenty of hair, pull your hair into a high, romantic ponytail. Loosely curl your hair for a look that’s light and bouncy.

Make it pop: If you’re looking for an accent, find a beautiful barrette to clip in your hair where the ponytail starts. You can also clip your veil around the ponytail.

Large Ballerina Bun

Ballerinas are known for their large buns — and buns never go out of style. Take all of your hair and put it up in a large bun. Depending on your wedding look, you can either do a tight bun or loosen your hair for an effortless look. In the end, this bun wedding hair leaves you with plenty of options for accents and your veil.  

Make it pop: You can add little bobby pin pearls around the bun, or tuck your veil into the base of your bun to draw attention to your hair.
