18 Perfect Hairstyles for Your Elopement Wedding
Your bridal hairstyle doesn’t have to be boring, stuffy, or traditional. Instead, they can be timeless, chic, and modern! From long, loose waves to sleek buns and braids, we’ve collected the best of bridal hairstyles to suit every face shape, hair texture, and length. All photographed by Fine Art Curation member, Manda Weaver, you’re guaranteed to fall in love with one of these looks – so why wait until your wedding day to try them out?
If you’ve always wanted the hair of a fairy-tale princess, the romantic updo is for you. Make it modern by keeping it smooth or polished. Tiny flowers or bridal accessories can be added to suit the romantic updo because they are petite enough not to distract from the details. Pair the style with an equally contemporary bridal gown.
TEXTURED LOW BUN
The low bun is messy yet chic. That makes it ideal for brides who want a modern, on-trend hairstyle to go with their equally understated gown. Pearls are one of the significant trends in hair accessories this season and make a great addition to a low bun hairstyle. Don't forget to pull a few strands loose to frame your face.
Loose waves are the ideal hairstyle for brides planning a beach or relaxed wedding. They also suit those with naturally long and thick hair with a wavy texture. To make the most of the style, dust your roots with volumizing powder and use a finishing spray to prevent your waves from getting fluffy. Loose waves also look beautiful when paired with hair accessories like clips, flowers, and headbands. Another popular choice is a half-up style with loose waves underneath.
There are so many braided hairstyles out there; you’re bound to find one you love. Better yet, some of them only require a brush and hair elastics to create. From Dutch and French to classic three-strand and pull-through braids, your options are endless. Most look best with thick hair, so be sure to clip in hair extensions and start taking hair vitamins to get your mane in perfect condition for your wedding day.
