Wedding Hairstyles: A Guide to Glamour

Wedding Hairstyles are one of our favorite topics at MODwedding. We seriously could sit and browse through amazing hair designs all day long. But that wouldn’t be very practical, now would it?

Find a style that fits your hair length and preferences and you’ve found magic. Get ready to be utterly inspired!

Wedding Updos

With updo wedding hairstyles, we tend to decorate the body with stunning jewelry–it’s how we create balance. Since the hair is pulled away from the neck and side of the face, incorporating a pair of bold earrings or a dramatic necklace is highly suggested. Updo styles also work perfectly with sexy open-back wedding dresses as a means to keep the hair out of the way so your gown can shine in all its glory.

Wedding Hairstyles for Long Hair

Long hairstyles are great for strapless gowns, creating a frame around the face and a natural accessory for a bare neckline. Cascading curls or bone-straight styles are best for a contemporary bridal look. Just be cautious of environmental factors that may cause frizziness or fly-away hairs (e.g., humid weather or wedding venues near water).

Wedding Hairstyles for Short Hair

Brides with short wedding hairstyles are my favorite. How adorable is the pixie cut for a posh wedding day look or an angular bob full of body and shine? Any way you spin it, short cuts have a way of influencing the kind of confidence that radiates.

Wedding Hairstyles for Medium Hair

Sometimes, medium length hair can be a challenge to style–too short for a full-bodied updo (in which case, many brides add extensions) or too long for some of the shorter styles above. Nonetheless, there are some truly fabulous ways to rock a medium length style. See below for ideas!

Half Up Half Down Wedding Hairstyles

I once attended a wedding where the bride wore an updo to her reception, then conveniently removed a pin or two–and voilà–she had a gorgeous half-up-half-down wedding hairstyle. This 2-in-1 option is ideal for a reception wardrobe change as you re-create your attire from head to toe for part two of the best day ever.
