KWP Brides are notorious for their amazing style, especially when it comes to their wedding hairstyles! With so many options for your wedding day hairstyle, we’re breaking down some of our favorites for you! From loose curls to modern accessories, we’re loving some of these options!
Best of Wedding Hairstyles
When deciding on your overall look for your wedding day, the hairstyle needs to be something you love. From beach waves to sleek up-dos and everything in between, it can be hard to narrow it down to your favorite look. This guide to some of the most beautiful wedding hairstyles for your day will help you narrow down your search.
It’s common for brides to test out some hairstyles before the big day in a trial session with their stylist. This allows you to test out concepts that you likely don’t try every day like hair extensions. It also prevents arriving for your big day and not feeling confident in how you look. That being said, in addition to looking amazing, you also want to feel amazing on your wedding day. If you always keep your hair down and flowing, a hairstyle that incorporates that will likely make you feel more comfortable. If you love keeping your hair in a bun on top of your head, an up-do may be a better choice.
Long Side Ponytail
Emma looks gorgeous with this low side-ponytail that drapes over the shoulder. This hairstyle looks amazing on women with long hair. The loose French braid at the top of the ponytail dresses up the hair look. One of the reasons she chose this hairstyle is so the bows on the shoulders of her dress are visible. Your hairstyle can have an effect on what details of your look are drawing the most attention. If you want to wear statement earrings, for example, a hairstyle that allows your ears to be seen well is a good choice.
Knotted Half-Up Crown
This crown hairstyle was on a bridesmaid at Ansley and Matt’s wedding. The way the hair is tied together as a crown at the top and then another tie at the bottom of her head makes for a perfect flowy hairstyle that looks good on anyone with medium or long hair. Something special about this style is that it looks great for any wedding vibe whether that be elegant, boho, etc. which is what makes it a perfect look for yourself or your bridesmaids.
Low Effortless Up Do
Veronika chose this low up-do that couldn’t look more perfect with her flowy dress. The apparent layers in her hair add so much depth to her style, especially being blonde. This hairstyle would look amazing on anyone looking for a simple yet beautiful look with their hair off their shoulders.
Totally French Twisted
Patricia chose to style our model, Gabby, with this messy twist for a recent bridal editorial! Since the gown we chose had an insanely beautiful high neck and we wanted to show it off, this hairstyle was the perfect compliment (and honestly, a personal favorite of mine!)
Loose Waves or Curls
Amanda has such gorgeous blonde hair, so it only made sense for her to show it off on her big day. This style is simple but looks amazing on her. It is also an easy look to add a veil to for the ceremony.
Natural and Easy
Kristen chose to wear her hair natural! I love that she chose to keep her style simple, really showing off her natural beauty! If you have naturally curly hair, definitely embrace it for your wedding day!
Modern Hollywood Glam
Jules also chose to keep her hair down for her wedding. She decided to add a beautiful barrette to contrast her dark hair color. It also adds some sparkle in a different way than wearing a necklace. We loved how effortlessly beautiful she looked the entire day!
Clean and Minimal
Jessica’s up-do has a classy and smooth look to it. This style does not allow for any flyaway hair, which ensures it will stay neat for the entire day in addition to just looking beautiful. This clean and polished style is definitely a timeless choice for your wedding day and ensures your hair will stay in place all day! If you’re getting married in warm or humid climates – it’s the perfect choice so you’re not worried about your hairstyle throughout the day!
The curls and low knot for these up-dos are a great way to have a cheerful vibe with a posh twist. Keeping the hair up with the low-back dresses add an elegant and revealing touch to the style. Lots of texture accentuates color variations in the hair – perfect for girls with highlighted styles! Plus, it’s great for girls with naturally textured hair!
Adding hair accessories can turn any hairstyle from simple to fun! The velvet ribbon adds such a vintage and classic touch to the ponytail, while Heidi’s top bun has a gold semi-circle clip underneath to dress up the look. When choosing a way to make your hair unique for your wedding day, hair accessories are the way to go.
Modern and Edgy
Whether your hair is short or long, you can add an edgy style to your wedding day like these brides. Christen’s side-shave adds so much character to her unique personal style. Even slicking back the side of your head and using bobby pins to hold it in place can give a similar effect and add a pop of shine!
Braids and Twists
This low knot looks beautiful on Emily for her big day. It makes her look so stunning and poised along with her lace gown by Ines Di Santo. This hairstyle is perfect for an elegant wedding day vibe.
This curly style looks beautiful on Amy as her husband, Ed, sees her for the first time on their wedding day. The braid on the left side of her head and barrette on the right side adds a gorgeous glimmer to the style. This couple traveled to Orlando from their home in England for their big day. Since she was not used to the Florida humidity, putting Amy’s hair up was necessary for her look. If you like to keep your hair a certain way depending on the climate, consider that when deciding on your wedding hairstyle.
Chrisel’s headband-looking braid that ties into a curly up-do is gorgeous in every aspect. Her hair was out of her way throughout her wedding and looked beautiful.
While all of these hairstyles are wonderful options for your wedding day, there are endless choices to choose from! Some brides decide to change their hairstyle from their ceremony to the reception. Keeping your hair down for the ceremony and putting it up for the reception is a great choice. It will keep your hair off your neck while spending the night dancing and socializing. Here are some more wedding hairstyles to inspire you and make your day as perfect as possible.
