Summer Wedding Hairstyles
Looking for the perfect up or down-do to complement your bridal gown? From beautiful braids to wonderful waves—we have the prettiest wedding hairstyles to wow the crowds on your big day.
1. Half up and Half down
The benefit of this style is that it’s perfect for when you want to wear your hair down, without it getting in your face. Give locks fullness and longevity by using a dynamic blow dry spray like Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow Out Spray. Use hot rollers and finish with a shine-giving hair spray.
2. Messy Chignon
This has a chic Grace Kelly vibe but updated for the modern bride with piece-y strands falling around the face to soften the overall look. It's even better when topped off with a tiara.
3. Framing Fringe
From Bardot bangs to French-girl fringes, this is Riviera chic all the way to the altar. Keep fringes under control by blow drying into place and then adding a little hairspray to hold.
4. Messy Updo
This tousled updo is super easy to do without enlisting the help of a hairdresser. All you need is pins and a strong hold hairspray. Plus it looks lovely under any style of veil.
5. Accessorised Updo
The addition of pearls and flowers make any hairstyle instantly bridal and add an air of boho romance. Either scatter randomly or add some oversized baubles at the base of your pony, slipped into your chignon or placed perfectly around that half up, half down do.
6. French Braid Halo
These milkmaid-inspired plaits work well when nuptials are down on the farm. They also look equally great with fishtail or Dutch braids too. Pull pieces out to frame the face.
7. Rope Braid
Wedding braids need not be fussy. Rope braids are perfect for destination weddings—especially somewhere romantic in the Med, so you keep cool from day-to-night. Top tip: if you have bumps in your braid, you can smooth them out with a Bobby pin and hairspray.
8. Soft Loose Braid
This style shows off a backless dress to perfection and works on any hair type. Plus it oozes modern-day glamour.
9. Braided ‘Crown’
There’s no need to buy a tiara to look like a princess. Plait your own crown for a less formal take on royal hair. You could also add some diamanté grips or glitter to boost your crowing glory.
10. Accessorised Braid
Fresh or faux flowers woven into braids propels any hair style into something more swoon-worthy. Fresh blooms add a beautiful scent to hair. Choose varieties with a sturdy stem like orchard, gardenia, and peony so they will stay in place and won't wilt in the heat.
11. Mermaid Waves
This beach-inspired look has universal appeal and will look lovely whether you’re near the coast or in the countryside. Use Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray to add texture and for style staying power.
12. Finger Waves
These are super-chic—especially if the wedding theme has a retro romance or vintage feel. Diamanté and sparkles would be a great addition here too.
13. Wavy Half Bun
This works well on bobs or longer styles. Loosely curl the lengths to give some polish and spritz Forever Full Hairspray to offer fine types more body while holding your heat-styled hair in place.
14. Wavy Half-Updo
To achieve this charming look, take sections of your hair and twist into shape, then secure with something pretty like floral, pearls or twinkly grips.
16. Side Part Waves
This look gives the impression of old Hollywood hair glamour. Use Heat Defeat Protecting Spray to shield hair from the onslaught of blow drying, rollers, and curling irons.
16. Textured Ponytail Twist
This look is a super pretty alternative to a classic pony and has a more relaxed vibe than a more structured coiffure. Place in the centre of your head or low and to the side depending on your dress neckline.
17. Side-Swept Ponytails
If your dress is strapless or asymmetric, a one-sided pony is the look for you (plaiting optional). If you have fine hair that’s also frizzy, smooth through some Weightless Wonder Featherlight Smoothing Crème onto ends. It hydrates and tames frizz without weighing fine hair it down.
18. High Ponytail
This is super slick and sophisticated, so hair needs to be in great shape or else you won’t get those clean, refined lines. In the lead up to the big day, use a care-giving hair treatment such as our Detox & Repair Masque once or twice per week to revitalise dry, dull and lifeless hair.
19. Sleek Ponytail
This sleek pony is excellent when paired with full-on make-up to elevate it to red carpet status. Wrap your own hair, a faux weft or some pretty fabric around the band that co-ordinates with your dress to jazz it up too.
20. Tucked-Under Pony
Wedding hair doesn't have to always mean ‘up-do.' This down-do, aka the tucked under pony, looks equally as glamorous when teamed with a gown, make-up and shoes. Arm yourself with pins and hairspray to hold in place.
