Wedding Hairstyles

Long wedding hairstyles for the beautiful bride!

Have long hair? Lucky you!  With long hair you won’t have a lack of gorgeous wedding hairstyles to choose from.  Before making a decision on a hairstyle for your big day, take a look at these stunning wedding hairstyles for long hair!

Wedding Hairstyles

Vintage Roll

Wedding hairstyles often look most stunning when understated like this vintage roll.

Get The Look:

Hair is neatly combed back, rolled under and pinned to secure. For a polished look use a shine product. I like Kiel’s Crème with Silk Groom which adds amazing shine, sans the grease.

Who Can Wear It?

This look works best with one-length or long layered hair and it suits most face shapes. However, the slicked back look can become severe looking with strong square facial features.

Wedding Hairstyles

Long Cascading Curls

A half-updo is the perfect way to show off long, cascading curls.

Get The Look:

Use volumizing products and set with hot rollers. With a side parting, sides are swept up into a high ponytail at the crown. Use a bit of hair to wrap around the pony and hide the elastic. Use an iron to touch any weak curls and a finishing spray to hold the look.

Who Can Wear It?

This style works best on medium to thick hair with lots of body and shine. The long silhouette is ideal for oval, heart, square and round face shapes. If your face shape is oblong, ditch the height at the crown, add bangs and create some fullness on the sides.

Grecian Curls 

Not your Mama’s Grecian curls!

Get The Look:

This intriguing adaptation of Grecian curls involves a dramatic deep diagonal parting with colorful extensions for volume and aesthetics. This updo is best left done by professionals.

Who Can Wear It?

This wedding hairstyle works for oval, round, square and heart shape faces. Rectangular and oblong faces can take on a long appearance with this look, but you can try tempering that with full or partial bangs.

Wedding Hairstyles

Half Up – Half Down

This style has become the classic wedding hairstyle.

Get The Look:

Hair is softly curled and backcombed before sweeping sides up and back to meet and pin in the middle. Secure your curls with a strong hold hairspray like Kenra Volume Spray 25.

Who Can Wear It?

This style is perfect for the bride who feels her best just being herself. This look fits oval, round, square and heart shaped faces best. Oblong faces will look longer with the added height at the crown.

Wedding Hairstyles

Braids and Buns 

Braids and buns are a lovely pairing for long bridal hairstyles. The possibilities are virtually endless.

Get The Look:

Hair is sectioned off in front of the ears to be used for braiding. A section on top is backcombed and brushed into a low messy bun. This look combines a French braid in front which becomes a traditional braid across the back.

Who Can Wear It?

This works best with medium to thick hair. Thinner hair types could wear this by adding a braided hair extension.

Wedding Hairstyles

Mad about Mad Men?

Retro wedding hairstyles are romantic, charming and exquisite.

Get The Look:

This elaborate chignon works best on second day hair. The top is backcombed heavily at the crown, smoothed and secured into a ponytail. Wrap pieces of the ponytail around fingers to create curls and pin. The fringe and sides are swept down and back with pieces pinned randomly into the chignon for a romantic effect.

Who Can Wear It?

Any woman who wants to be-a-dream on her wedding day! Take the time to find the perfect headpiece or hair accessory to pull the look together, like this pretty embellished chiffon bow!

Wedding Hairstyles

Soft Flower Braided Updo

A large braid interspersed with flowers and baby’s breath . . . simply delightful.

Get The Look:

Hair is curled, backcombed and brushed into a loosely formed bun. Hair in front of the ears is left out for braiding and for piecing into the bun. Cascading tendrils are enchanting!

Who Can Wear It?

Braids look best with medium and thick hair, but extensions are an option. This style works for all face shapes. Round faces will look best with tendrils that show from the front.

Wedding Hairstyles

 Soft Elegant Updo

So pretty . . . so elegant.

Get The Look:

Keep your hair well hydrated and conditioned to reveal hairs natural body and shine in a glamorous, bride-worthy way. I love Macadamia Deep Conditioning Treatment and Healing Oil to bring out mega body and shine. Elegant wedding hairstyles like this side-swept updo don’t always require every hair to be in perfect place to be stunning!

Who Can Wear It?

The asymmetrical look works with all face shapes. Round or square faces may like to add some height to the crown which will add the appearance of length.

Wedding Hairstyles

 Sophisticated High Bun

An elegantly embellished high bun signifies the utmost in formality.

Get The Look:

It’s always calming to put yourself in the hands of a professional for your wedding hairstyle, but if you choose not to go that route, this sophisticated high bun is a surprisingly simple and easy updo to achieve.  A synthetic braid can be used to wrap around the base of the bun. 

Who Can Wear It?

This works well with medium –thick to fine hair.  Hair that is too heavy can become a big headache or hard to hold in place, so test it ahead of time to be certain it’s comfortable for the entire day.
