Bridal Hairstyle Inspiration

You can never get enough hair inspiration right?!

If you’re not entirely sure how you want to wear your hair on the big day, you probably have a general idea of whether you’d like to have it up or down, veil or no veil… Get started by selecting a basic category below!

Lets start with a few Bridal hairstyles that are perfect if you are wearing a veil and where the best place to position the veil ……. 

Half up half down is a faithful hair style that is complementary to many face shapes and lengths of hair. This style can work whether you have a fringe or not. You can also add a little volume at the top, or a braid and have soft curls, a wave or even straight hair on the bottom half. It is perfect for a veil because it gives you a foundation to secure and place the veil. it is definitely one of the most versatile bridal hairstyles to choose.

Up-dos include chignons, braids, romantic and soft or messy styles as well as buns and top knots. Generally the veil is worn below a top knot or on top of a low bun but it all depends on the length of the veil and what looks and feels good to you. As for the Braids and chignons normally the veil is positioned above and can secure into the hairstyle but the preference can be individual. If you have a headpiece as well as a veil for your bridal hairstyle then great idea to have the veil below the bun or chignons so your headpiece can be seen.

Next are some ideas if you are not a veil kind of gal!

Effortless/ Simple Hairstyles – An elaborate up-do isn’t right for every bride.  So opt for salt sprayed waves, a soft loose wave or loosely pinned up or even half up hairstyle. Also instead of a veil or a tiara maybe a flower crown or small simple head jewel is right for you?!..
