Bridal Hairstyles: How to Style Your Hair for the Big Day

Updated: Feb 16

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and you want to look and feel your best. Your hairstyle is a big part of your overall look, so it's important to choose a style that you love and that will make you feel confident.


Here are a few things to consider when choosing your bridal hairstyle:

  • Your dress: Your hairstyle should complement your dress and overall wedding theme. If you're wearing a strapless dress, you might want to consider an updo that will show off your shoulders. If you're wearing a more conservative dress, you might want to opt for a softer, more romantic style.

  • Your hair type: Your hair type will also play a role in determining which hairstyles will work best for you. If you have fine hair, you might want to consider a style that will add volume. If you have thick hair, you might want to opt for a style that will help to tame your locks.

  • Your face shape: Your face shape can also help you to narrow down your hairstyle options. If you have a round face, you might want to consider a style that will help to elongate your face. If you have an oval face, you're lucky! Almost any hairstyle will look great on you.

Once you've considered these factors, you can start to narrow down your hairstyle options. Here are a few popular bridal hairstyles to get you started:

  •  Updos: Updos are a classic choice for bridal hairstyles, and for good reason. They're elegant, sophisticated, and can be customized to suit any hair type or face shape.  

  • Half-up, half-down: Half-up, half-down hairstyles are a great option for brides who want to show off their hair but still keep it out of their face.  

  •  Braids: Braids are a beautiful and versatile way to style your hair for your wedding day. They can be incorporated into updos, half-up, half-down styles, or even left down.  

  • Curls: Curls are a timeless and romantic choice for bridal hairstyles. They can be worn in a variety of ways, from loose and flowing to pinned up in an elegant updo.  

No matter what hairstyle you choose, the most important thing is that you feel confident and beautiful on your wedding day. So experiment with different styles until you find one that you love!

Tips for Styling Your Hair for the Big Day:

  • Start with clean, healthy hair. This will help your hairstyle to look its best.

  • Use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. This will help to add volume and body to your hair.

  • Blow dry your hair with a round brush. This will help to smooth your hair and create a foundation for your hairstyle.

  • Use a light-hold hairspray to keep your hair in place. This will help to prevent your hairstyle from falling flat.

  • Add some accessories to your hair. This could include a veil, tiara, or hair comb.

How to Clip Your Veil

If you're wearing a veil, you'll need to clip it into your hair securely.

Here are a few tips:

  • Choose a veil that is the right length for your hair. The veil should be long enough to cover your hair, but not so long that it gets in your way.

  • Use bobby pins to secure the veil to your hair. Place the bobby pins in a criss-cross pattern, and make sure that they're pushed in securely.

  • Add a little hairspray to help keep the veil in place. This will help to prevent the veil from slipping out of your hair.
