Since we were little girls, we dreamt of walking down the aisle and saying “I do” to the man of our life. That is why it is no wonder that we feel both happy and anxious when we finally get to plan our wedding day. There are a lot of things to organize, but choosing our bridal look is certainly one of the most beautiful and stressful tasks. And while most of us know what kind of a wedding dress we want, the hairstyle may be a bit of a problem.
In order to help you find your perfect hairdo, we bring you five of the most gorgeous half up half down hairstyles you can choose from for your wedding day.
This kind of hairdo is quite simple, yet stunning. It will look exceptionally lovely with a long dress that is covered in lace. To achieve this hairstyle, you should firstly put soft waves through the hair, and then put the upper parts in a loose bun. Go for a transparent hair tie and use bobby pins to secure the bun. Then let a few locks fall around your face, in order to frame it and to make the overall look more feminine and romantic. To finish off, apply a few spritzes of a texturizing hairspray to make your hair get even more volume.
Flowers in your hair are always a divine option, and they are acceptable even for an autumnal wedding. To rock this hairstyle in the right manner, you need long and voluminous hair. This doesn’t mean that brides with short and/or thin hair cannot wear their hair in this manner; you can simply use a little trick in the form of extensions. To get the best effect, you want natural hair such as the soft Russian hair extensions that have a lovely, fine texture. Just make sure that you opt for a colour that is the closest to your natural hair colour so that you can blend the extensions nicely into your own hair. Then loosely curl only the ends of the hair and put the front pieces up and interweave them with the floral crown. Once more, bobby pins are your best friend to tuck in any loose strands of hair.
If you have chosen an off-the-shoulder gown for your wedding, this hairstyle inspired by the gorgeous Brigitte Bardot will look stunning on you. After you have applied heat protecting spray, blow-dry the hair and use extensions if your hair is short. You can also use a curling iron to add some waves to your hair, as it shouldn’t be completely straight for this hairdo. Then take a smaller section of your upper hair, backcomb it, and tie it casually in a ponytail with an elastic. Let your bangs or front pieces frame your face and backcomb them slightly. Now all is left to do is to wrap a silk or satin bow around the ponytail, and you will get an incredibly chic hairstyle.
This hairstyle is quite effortless, but amazing for brides with curly or wavy hair. It will add an extra touch of glamour to a short, girly wedding dress, but it will look even more luxurious with a long, satin dress. To achieve this look, firstly backcomb the hair at the crown of your head and then separate the front pieces from each side. Twist both pieces slightly and pin them at the back of the head, at the level which is just below your ears. Apply hairspray, and if you want to make the look even more stunning, opt for a hair clip or another lovely bridal hair accessory. This will add a fashionable touch to your overall look.
If you are a bride who is not interested in any traditional bridal hairstyles, then a lovely asymmetrical half up half down braid is the right choice for you. This look is also an option for all hair types and lengths. All you need to do is to take the front piece on one side of your hair and start weaving it, adding the upper parts of your hair on that side to it as you go along. Once you have a lovely braid, secure it with a transparent hair tie and pull it out slightly, so that it looks more casual and that it blends with the rest of your hair.
Choose the half up half down hairstyle that works the best for you, and enjoy your big day while looking and feeling like a true princess.
