On your wedding day, you’re going to be posing for as many photos as Reese Witherspoon on the red carpet, and spending an evening surrounded by all of your friends and family (maybe even everyone you know). And that’s not to mention the fact that your beloved will probably never forget the way you looked on your special day.
Obviously there’s a lot of pressure to look gorgeous on this day more than any other. And you may not be inclined to devote part of your precious wedding budget, not to mention hours of time on the morning of your special day, towards getting your hair professionally styled.
These 10 easy wedding hairstyles are as gorgeous as anything a professional could dream up and simple enough that you can do them yourself, even when besieged by the pre-wedding jitters.
Boxed Fishtail Braid (via PopSugar):
This is the perfect hairstyle for the bohemian bride. If you’re a whiz at braiding, you’ll be able to do this one in a flash.
Braided Bun Updo (via Missy Sue):
A hidden bun-doughnut lends this style some serious volume. This would look so pretty with a metallic headband or floral crown!
High Curly Bun (via The Freckled Fox):
This wedding hairstyle is so classically elegant that it won’t look dated even when you’re looking back on your wedding pictures fifty years from now.
Mermaid Tail Braid (via A Cup of Jo):
Even if you’re hopeless at hairstyling, you can do this one. You’re basically just doing two Dutch braids (which are really easy, so don’t be intimidated by the fancy name!) and pinning them together. The best part is that the style looks so gorgeous no one will know it was such a cinch to do.
Looped Updo (via Missy Sue):
This style looks so intricate, but we’ll tell you a secret: if you can tie a knot and do a hair twist, you’ll master this look easily.
Hollywood Waves (via Grey Likes Weddings):
You’ll look like an old-Hollywood star in this vintage-inspired style. This tutorial provides the secrets to getting perfectly defined waves using a normal curling iron.
Modern Chignon (via The Beauty Department):
This hairdo is a must-do for the sophisticated bride. It would look fantastic with a sleek, modern wedding gown.
Princess Braids (via Twist Me Pretty):
You’ll feel like a Disney princess with this pretty style. What appears to be a complex style is actually just a pair of cleverly pinned, modified French braids.
Double Fishtail Headband Braids (via Missy Sue):
How gorgeous is this half-up style? The braiding required is somewhat complex, but this tutorial provides detailed instructions to help you master it.
The Low Curled Pony (via The Freckled Fox):
This style is like the perfect compromise between an updo and a half-up. It has all the glamour of an updo, while still allowing you to showcase your mane.
