For many blushing brides, picking out the perfect wedding-day hairstyle is just as important as choosing a gown. And if you’ve got longer hair, you have many styling options to choose from for your big day. Many brides with long hair opt for an updo, which allows them to dance the night away without worry and keep their hair out of their face. If you’ve decided on an updo, however, you might be feeling a little overwhelmed by all the choices available to you. Not to worry! We’ve done some of the hard work for you and hand-picked out some of our favorite bridal updos for long hair; perhaps these will give you some inspiration for your own style.
Romantic and Polished
If elegant and polished is what you’re going for, consider this low updo that beautifully gathers long hair into curls just below the nape of the beck. The subtly incorporated braid adds a romantic touch, and you could easily wear this style with a crown and/or veil, if you so choose. We’d recommend inserting the veil comb directly above the bunched section of curls.
Elegant and Simple
Looking for something a little more simple and sleek? If so, then this simple bun updo could be an excellent choice for you. Sideswept hair is given an elegant twist along the side before being tied into a low bun in the back. This style is absolutely gorgeous if you’re thinking about wearing a a hair accessory but, it’s beautiful on its own as well. If this is too simple for you, consider asking your stylist to add a braid for more visual interest.
Speaking of braids, they’re super popular when it comes to wedding-day hairstyles this year. If you’re interested in rocking this trend on your big day, check out this elegant braided updo. With this style, long hair is braided loosely, brought into a side bun, and pinned into place. This is a truly unique style that is enough to make a statement on its own—no crown or veil needed (although, hairspray likely is needed to keep this style in place, so don’t forget to have your Maid of Honor pack a travel-sized bottle for touch-ups!). A proper foundation is also key which is one of our specialties!
