Popular Wedding Hair Styles

Making the right decision on hair style for your big day can seem daunting but it doesn’t have to be. No matter the type of celebration you are having, there are several popular wedding hair styles to choose from.


The classic updo hairstyle is a timeless look that has been popular for decades and is ideal for brides of all hair types:

  • Low Bun – Gather all of your hair in a low bun, adorned with some sparkling pins or a floral accessory for an elegant look.
  • Pony – Create an easy, romantic style with an effortless ponytail, decked out with a few looped strands or some small white flowers to give it an extra special touch.
  • Braids – Add a romantic touch with a braid, French or fishtail, neatly intertwined at the back of your head for a beautiful effect.

Half-Up Hairstyles

If you are looking for a beautiful yet sophisticated style, a half-up hairstyle is the perfect option. The beauty of this style is that you can have the hair down and loose, or you can provide a more refined look with some well-placed curls.

  • Twisted Bun – This is an elegant, yet simple style that can be done in short or long hair. Gather the top half of your hair and twist it into a bun, secured with pins or a tiara.
  • Voluminous Curls – Add some volume to your look by curling all of your hair, then take a few tendrils from the front to pull back into a voluminous fit.
  • Half Up-Half Down – This look is a classic for good reason – it works for any hair length or texture. Simply take two sections of your hair and secure it into a half-up look with some pins and a beautiful accessory.

Long Hair

There are so many possibilities when it comes to long hair. From simple ponytails to a wavy and cascading look, the options are endless.

  • Loose Waves – Create a classic and romantic look with loose waves. Use a curling iron and spray some hairspray to hold your style in place.
  • Soft Curls – For a more natural and effortless look, go with soft curls. Wrap a few layers of hair around curling iron and let them tumble down for an effortless look.
  • Ponytail – Achieve a classic, sleek and sophisticated look with a high ponytail. This style is perfect for brides who want to show off their beautiful face.

No matter your vision for your big day, there is a popular wedding hair style to suit. Enjoy the process of trying out and experimenting with styles to get the perfect one for your special day.
