5 Romantic Wedding Hairstyles 

Rather than conforming to a slicked-back hairstyle for your wedding day, choose something sexy and romantic which will look stunning in wedding photographs for years to come.

These romantic hairstyles are best for the warmer weather, but you can adapt them to any type of climate or situation – just remember to avoid any dreaded flyaways!

Oversized braid

Any type of braid is best for hair which is thick and course, since it will stay in place all day long. These hairstyles look better with some wear, so a few loose ends won’t be the end of the world! Keep some bobby pins at hand, and embrace the natural texture of your hair.

Half-up half-down

Hilary Duff wears this style perfectly, making it look sexy and sophisticated at the same time. Ideal for girls with a few longer layers, to achieve that 70’s bombshell look with a touch of volumising spray and powder. Lightly curl the ends of your hair and spritz with sea-salt so they can maintain some subtle bounce.

2

Soft bangs

Bring a level of warmth to your face by chopping some soft side-bangs just before the wedding. Choose a wispy finish which leaves hair looking side-swept and gorgeous, as opposed to a severe straight-chop which could age your face. A few subtle highlights never hurt!

1950s inspired

Keep short hair looking neat and tidy with two reverse braids pinned in the middle of the scalp. Not only is this hairstyle quick and easy, it also looks amazing on girls with a hint of balayage, and also photographs beautifully.

Hair accessories

If your wedding is taking place during the warmer months of the year, why not take advantage of this and wear some fresh flowers in your hair? A flower garland is the perfect accessory for long, layered hair, without looking too over-the-top.

Get the look: Blake Lively’s Bohemian Side Braid

Beautiful girl next door Blake Lively has been rocking a mean side braid lately, and we here at SHESAID think that it’s the perfect look for the warmer weather.¬†Although this is ideal if your hair is medium-long length, you can also try it on layered hair since it will look laid-back and undone.

Instructions

1. Divide your hair into two sections, and then simply comb through any knots or tangles. Start from the ends, then gently work your way upwards to the crown. Feel free to pop in any extensions if you feel your hair needs some more volume to work this look, otherwise you can just proceed as usual.

2. Whether your hair is freshly washed or second-day, spray some dry-shampoo at the roots to create some lift and volume.

3. Clip one of the sections off, and work with one side at a time. Apply a bit of texturising spray to your ends, since this will make the look lived-in.

4. Take a small section from the front of your hair, and section it off on the other side. Now divide your hair in two, and start a fish braid on the front section. This doesn’t have to be too tight, it really just depends on how refined you want the look to be.

5. After you’re done with the first fishtail braid, use your fingers to divide the hair for a casual look. Pull it apart at the roots and at the ends. Secure it with a clear hair tie. Do the same with the back section of the hair you previously divided.

6. Now take the 2 completed fishtail braids and use a bobby pin to secure them together in the middle. Do this the entire way down the length of the hair.

7. Take the other section and bring it over the side of hair you were just working on. Smooth it out over the fishtail braids, then do another fishtail using large sections of hair instead.

8. Combine the 3 fishtail braids together, making sure that the biggest is showing at the front. Then secure with another clear elastic. At this point the bobby pins shouldn’t be sticking out, since the final fishtail will be able to conceal any tracks.

9. If you have sectioned off any front bangs, just simply curl the ends and pin over to one side. Tuck in the ends depending on how long your hair is.

10. Use a clip or brooch over the top, since this will tie the entire look together and conceal any bobby pins!
