Wedding Hair Ideas


I thought it might be fun to pull together some of my favorite wedding hairstyles for today. It's always nice to get a little hair inspiration, right? There's no way I could actually do one of those braids above by myself. My arms get so tired when I try to hold them up to do my hair (and when I'm trying to hold warrior poses in yoga), so if anyone wants to come live with me and be my personal braider, I wouldn't be opposed to it. Anyway, this is the style I love most for my own wedding, especially the left one with more curl. Since I have such long hair, and I want to wear it down, my options are pretty limited. I don't mind it though because I love the waterfall braid! Here are some other gorgeous styles that I think would look great for a wedding 'do.

down, gently curled with a pretty detailed headband - source / source

braided in front (down or up in the back!) with hair piece - source / source

veil with lace edge - source / source

If I was going to wear a veil, it would definitely have lace edging! Isn't that just so pretty and classy? There are so many great styles to choose from...I haven't come across very many that I just really dislike (besides styles that remind me of the 80s or early 90s...big hair can be scary).  What about you all? What is your favorite wedding hair style?

I think all of those are lovely! I think whatever might look best from the front is the deciding factor, since you'll be shot from the side and front in most of your photos. :)

Oh! And when my hair was super long I liked doing a low, assymetrical bun, with a comb on the side of my hair, or like the one on the right, three down. Kinda like this: http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/sites/files/marthastewartweddings.com/ecl/images/content/pub/weddings/2010Q3/mwd105687_sum10_style3_121_xl.jpg

My vote goes for the first, top one on the left also! I love the veil with the edging lace as well.

They are all so beautiful, I don't know how one would pick a style? I guess have it done before hand. Oh I guess the dress makes a difference too right, ha ha.

Oh so pretty, & I can't believe I'd never seen a braid like the top ones before, it looks so simple but pretty. do you think there are some bobby pins hiding in at the end of the braid somewhere?
