Are you looking for a stunning and elegant hairdo to complete your bridal look? You will find one here.


From gorgeous short haircuts for brides to romantic wedding hairstyles for long hair, there are so many options from which to choose. Are you torn about how you want to wear your hair for your wedding? With everything else you have to do to prepare for the big day, the last thing you want to do is worry about the hair.

Here is a selection of some of the most glamorous and chic bridal hairstyles for long hair. Also, we have some of the most elegant and sophisticated styles for those brides with short hair.


A lot of brides have short women’s haircuts and might be at a loss when it comes to choosing a wedding hairstyle. However, there are so many pretty ways to style short hair for brides. This short wavy bob is so pretty with its soft, romantic curls. Add a pretty floral wreath or hairpiece to give it a boho chic look that is quite feminine!


Sometimes a simple hairstyle can be just as classy as a fancy one. This bridal hairstyle is styled to the side and fixed in a carefree, messy look that is perfect for an outdoor wedding. The big, messy waves give it a slightly windblown look that is soft and romantic. Weave in some pretty flowers for a hint of glamour. This look is perfect for medium length to long hair.


Braids are very stylish and can be extremely classy for medium and long hair wedding styles. Even short haircuts can be styled into a pretty braid if you start at the crown and braid in the fringe for an elegant braided updo.

And what is prettier in a bride’s hair than the baby’s breath, or gypsophila, which is the scientific name for these tiny, delicate white flowers. The baby’s breath is often used in bridal bouquets to dress them up as well as woven into the bride’s hair for a touch of sophistication. The baby’s breath represents innocence, purity and everlasting love.

A hint of baby’s breath is so stunning when woven elegantly into a stylish braid or updo and can really draw attention to your gorgeous wedding hairstyle.


Buns are chic and ornate wedding hairstyles for long hair. A braided low bun adds an exquisite touch to your bridal hairstyle. And they are not that hard to do if you are going to style your own hair. All you need to do is sweep the hair away from your face, braid it in the style of your choice and wrap it into a low bun. Of course, you can weave in some beads, gemstones or baby’s breath flowers to give it more dainty flair for your wedding day. Leave a few tendrils hanging to softly frame your face.


Many brides with longer hair prefer updos for their special day as they want to show off the gorgeous neckline and back of their beautiful wedding gowns. A messy bun updo is still quite chic and sophisticated, but it has a bit of a carefree vibe. It is perfect for an informal or outdoor wedding such as a beach wedding or backyard wedding. Style your hair in a slightly messy bun and add a gorgeous bridal hair piece to make it stand out.


If you don’t want a bun, there are plenty of other messy updo wedding hairstyles for you. All you need is a few hairpins to create a stunning and romantic bridal hairstyle that will take everyone’s breath away as you walk down the aisle. You can style your hair into a chignon or a low ponytail. Back-comb your roots to add some fullness while twisting and tucking your tresses into the messy updo style of your preference. And of course, you can dress it up with a pretty bridal hair accessory such as a hair clip or some flowers.


If you prefer a more traditional braid as opposed to a braided updo, you can style your locks into a messy braid such as this one. You need to choose from so many braided hairstyles such as a basic braid, French braid, fishtail braid or a combination of different braids for a multidimensional look. Braid your hair as you choose and then tug lightly at the ends to give it a messy look. Be sure to add some pretty hair accessories such as butterfly clips or flowers to give it a formal vibe or to match with your wedding gown.


Half up, half down hairstyles are a great way to style your hair whether it is long, medium to short haircuts. Style part of your hair into a braid, bun, chignon, topknot or ponytail and let the rest of it fall gracefully. Add some flowers or a hairpiece to give it the extra special flair for your wedding hairstyle.


If you are having a barn or a beach wedding, you might want to consider this rustic braided wedding hairstyle. The long loose braid that ends halfway down your back in a loose wavy ponytail is simple yet elegant. Make sure to add some flowers or other delicate accessories to your hair to give it romantic flair for your big day.


Another great style for short haircuts is this boho chic wavy bob with fresh flowers. You don’t have to have long locks to dress them up nicely for your wedding. Even a short pixie is glamorous if you add a pretty fascinator or some fresh flowers. Boho chic hairstyles are perfect for an outdoor wedding such as a beachfront wedding or another informal style wedding. Fresh flowers add a touch of class to any bridal hairstyle.
