    Some Wedding Hair Styles Ideas:

    Wearing Your Hair in an wedding Updo ~~ Wearing your hair in an updo is a great option for wedding hair styles. It gives off a formal vibe, so go with a hair style like this if you are having a formal affair, or if you want to show off a beautiful neckline or shoulders. A bit of bang in the front, like this picture shows, is very beautiful too.

    Wedding Hair Undecided ~~ Can’t decide between your wedding hair style worn up or worn down? Why not meet in the middle and combine the best of both worlds by choosing a half-up, half down hairstyle? A wedding hair style like this can be worn a variety of ways and works for both formal and casual affairs. Experiment with the amount of hair you put up, as well as where the headpiece or veil is worn for the best look.

    Wedding Hair Styles Tips

    Wedding Hair Styles Tip 1 ~~ Trial runs of your wedding hair style are both necessary and helpful. Whether you are hiring a professional wedding hairdresser, or doing your wedding hair styles yourself, a trial run or two can help you decide on a wedding hair style and see what the end result will look like.

    Wedding Hair Styles Tip 2 ~~ Be sure to keep extra bobby pins, shine spray and hairspray with you on your wedding day for touch ups throughout the reception.

    Wedding Hair Styles Tip 3 ~~ Keep your hair cut and color conservative. This is your wedding day and you want your wedding hair style to be timeless. This is not the time to experiment with a short hair style or funky hair colors.

    My personal wedding hair style favorite is a half-up, half-down hair style that incorporates a bit of formality and a bit of casualness, perfect for any style of wedding (I could be partial to this hair style, considering I wore this wedding style at my own wedding.

    1. Hi! I’m getting married this fall and still haven’t found a dress. I stumbled across this site (while searching for wedding hairstyles) and found a dress that I loved on one of the girls in the pictures. It’s the girl with her hair down, blonde, with the way rad, flowery headband. I LOVE her dress! I would love to know where you found this picture so I can somehow hunt down a similar dress! Thanks so much! :)
