How you choose to wear your hair on your wedding day is every bit as important as picking out your dress or choosing a venue for your wedding. You want everything to be perfect for your big day, and your hair is no exception. After all, it will be preserved forever in your wedding photos, so it is important that you look your best. Here are some beautiful bridal hairstyles for long hair that you may want to try:
These beautiful braids are essentially just a modified French braid. Instead of braiding all of the hair in, however, you allow every other strand to hang down from the braid, grabbing a new piece of hair from underneath to replace it. This creates a beautiful cascading effect where the hair seems to be pouring out of the braid like a waterfall. The best part is that it still allows you to wear your hair long, but gives you the elegance of a half-updo.
Pulling your hair back close to your head in a sleek updo is a classically elegant look that is perfect for a wedding. Best of all, it keeps your hair out of your face and eliminates the need to worry about whether or not your curls are going to fall out or your hair is going to fall flat. Try adding fancy accessories to your hair after it is pulled back to make the look even more special.
Wearing your hair down in loose curls can be incredibly romantic. If you don’t have naturally curly hair, you can achieve this look with the use of hot rollers. Using rollers is usually a better option than using a curling iron since the curls tend to last longer. Be sure to allow the curls to cool completely after you take out the rollers. Then, use your fingers to lightly break apart the curls, taking care not to touch them too much so they don’t become frizzy. Once you have them arranged how you want them, spray them with a high-quality hairspray to help them last all day.
Curled Side Ponytail
Pulling your hair to the side instantly makes it look more elegant. To get this look, start by curling your hair into relatively tight curls. Next, at the back of your head on the opposite side from where you want your ponytail to be, start loosely twisting your hair toward the other side. When you reach the other side, secure it in place with bobby pins. Loosely twist the front and side sections down into the ponytail as well, again securing them with bobby pins. When finished, the hair on your head should loosely twist into a side ponytail, with beautiful curls cascading down over your shoulder.
Hopefully, one of these bridal hairstyles for long hair will help you achieve the perfect look for your big day. If you have trouble recreating the looks on your own, you can always hire a hairdresser to help you make sure your hair looks gorgeous on your wedding day.
