With warm weather and lots of sunshine, we often see more relaxed updos and playful hairstyles from brides during the summer wedding season. From fashion-forward ponytails to fun fishtails, here are a few summer wedding hairstyles to try out for your own special day.
Sleek Top Knot
Add some modern flair to the traditional wedding bun with a sleek top knot. You can slick it all the way back, or leave a few subtle strands hanging out to frame your face. Not only does this easy-to-do hairstyle help show off the beautiful back details of your wedding dress, it also keeps your hair off your neck during the summer heat.
One of our favorite summer wedding hairstyles is a textured ponytail. This style works well on all hair types from straight to wavy to curly. Create some loose waves to comb your hair back into a low ponytail, then add a bit of volume to the crown for a more tousled finish.
Put an updated twist on this classic wedding hairstyle by adding some unexpected braids. Add volume with a larger bun paired with a simple crown braid to help elongate your neck and show off your beautiful jewelry. For brides with braids, we recommend twisting them up into a bun for an eye-catching multi-braid effect that’s ideal for a warm outdoor wedding in the middle of summer.
Braids are the perfect hairstyle for a summer wedding. A fishtail braid is romantic and effortless, while also keeping you cool in the summer. It’s also a great way to keep your hair pulled back while dancing and mingling with guests at your wedding. Accessorize your braid with an embellished hair pin, fresh flowers or tie it off with a delicate ribbon at the bottom.
Let your hair down for the day and show off your natural curls for a relaxed yet elegant summer wedding hairstyle. Pin them up or scoop back a few curls if you’d like to keep them off your face, or you can do minimal styling with just a comb and a bit of hairspray.
