Braids are often considered a casual hair style, but you can easily transform braided hair into an amazing wedding style everyone will envy. With the help of hair extensions, these braided hair styles can take a traditional wedding style and add a romantic twist that will make your wedding day even more special. These options will make a great alternative to the wedding styles you’re used to seeing.
A Braided Bun
Buns are a common choice for brides because it elegantly pulls the hair out of the face and works well under veils and other popular headwear for brides. Instead of a traditional bun, however, brides can dress up this hair style by braiding the hair before coiling it into a romantic bun. Leaving a few curls around the face can complete the look and make every bride a vision for her special day.
A Loose Braid
A simple braid may seem plain, but you can still use this as a great option for wearing your hair beneath your veil. Instead of braiding your hair tightly, try a looser braid secured at the nape of your neck. While this won’t keep all of your hair secured into the braid, any hair that escapes can be styled in any way you prefer. When you exercise quality hair care with a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner, your hair will look amazing in this style.
A Braid Crown
Many brides are choosing a tiara or a floral crown to adorn their heads rather than a more traditional veil. If you are looking for a different way to make these hair pieces pop, consider creating a crown from your hair first. Braiding your hair and wrapping it around your head, secured with hair pins, will create the perfect foundation for anchoring a floral wreath or tiara to the top of your head. Consider weaving a ribbon into this hair style.
An Inverted Braid with Top Knot
Another popular hair style for brides is the top knot because it nestles beautifully within a tiara or floral wreath. However, if you want to mix things up and create a unique look, run an inverted braid from the nape of your neck up toward the bottom of the top knot. This is perfect for brides who aren’t using a veil and can create a fun look that stands out.
Flower Child Braids
If you look back at hair styles of the 60s, you’ll notice a lot of braids wrapped from the front of the head, around to the nape of the neck. These were often accented with flowers. Today, this is a great option for brides who want to use flowers as their hair pieces. This look is perfect for more casual affairs.
Finding the perfect wedding hair style can be stressful. There are many choices, which can make the decision even more difficult. Some of these styles are more casual, while others are just as romantic and elegant as other traditional bridal styles. When you use a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner on your hair extensions before your wedding, any style you choose will be perfect.
