Side Ponytail

Hair is curled, then twisted and pinned into a low side ponytail with pin-curls resting on top of it.

Recommended Products:

Keep the curls in your ponytail maintained with serum. I love Moroccan Oil.

Hair Type:

Extra long hair is best for this style. Curling hair makes it shrink, so extra length will keep hair looking long even after it’s curled and put into a ponytail.

Face Shape

The soft curls in this will soften a square jaw. Avoid this style if you have a round face. It will only add more body to the sides.

Tip:

Backcomb underneath the hair that will go into the ponytail to add more body.

Waterfall Twist

The waterfall twist adds a little something more to an all down style. Each side is twisted to the middle in the back and tied together with hair.

Recommended Products:

Give your curls more movement and texture with spray wax. I like the Short Sexy Hair Play Dirty spray wax.

Hair Type:

This will work best on those with long layers and thick hair. If your hair is thin, the twist won’t be as noticeable.

Face Shape:

This can work on any face shape. It’s soft enough to flatter everything from square to heart to round.

Tip:

Tie your waterfall twist together with a clear elastic, then hide the elastic with a strand of hair.

Sleek Updo

This look is all about class. Hair is softly swept away from the face and pinned to the middle of the back of the head in a sleek shape.

Recommended Products:

When going for a sleek style, make sure to add some shine to your hair to help it look polished. My favorite shine spray is Unite Eurotherapy Shina-Mist.

Hair Type:

Healthy, shiny hair is what this bridal style needs.

Face Shape:

Since this style is completely pulled away from the face, it works best on an oval face. If your face is longer, add extra body to the sides. If it is round, add extra body to the top.

Tip:

Even though this is all taking place in the back of the head, don’t ignore the front. Make sure to create a flattering shape in the front and add some wave in the sides to keep it interesting.

Vintage Updo

Photo by Amber Weimer Photography

A low, sleek bun in the back is dressed up with vintage pin-curls coming down each of the sides.

Recommended Products:

A style like this cannot budge!  Use a really hard hold hairspray such as TIGI Hard Head Hard Hold Hairspray.

Hair Type:

Medium to fine hair with at least medium length layers works best for this style.

Face Shape:

This style works best on oval face shapes. Hair pulled back like this can be too harsh for a square shaped face or a face with harsher features.

Tip:

To really glue a pin curl in place, form it with your fingers, shoot it up close with hairspray and then blow dry it on low. The curl won’t go anywhere after that!

This is only the beginning when it comes to bridal hairstyle options for long hair. Whether you decide to show off your length or use in a nice, full updo, hopefully these ideas have given you inspiration and pointed you in the right direction.

Cascading Curls

Different from a normal side swept updo, the majority of these curls are pinned up with some left cascading down the shoulder so you can still show off your length.

Recommended Products:

When it comes to a curly bridal hairstyle like this, the last thing you want is frizz. My favorite product for smoothing down frizz is Enjoy Creamy Pomade.

Hair Type:

This style works best on brides with medium to thick hair to help with fullness from top to bottom.

Face Shape:

This style will work with any face shape. If you have a long or square face, keep some fringe or curls out around your face.

Tip:

For this style, the longer and thicker the hair, the better. If you weren’t born with the right hair type, get some clip in extensions for your wedding day.

Twisted Chignon

This chignon starts with a twist braid in the front, twisting across the back of the head and ending in a low side chignon on the opposite side.

Recommended Products:

Doing a twist braid on tangled hair is nearly impossible! Make your job easier by applying Unite 7 Seconds Leave-in Conditioner before you blow dry.

Hair Type:

This style works best on hair with little to no layers. Too many layers will disrupt the flow of the braid.

Face Shape:

This style works best on round or oval face shapes. If your face is round, just be sure to give it enough volume on top to add length to your face shape.

Tip:

Give your hair some volume by backcombing it first and holding the hair gently in your hands as you braid.

Half Up

Photo by Lindsey Shaun Photography

Description:

The hair is softly curled and halfway pinned up in barrel curls in the back, sweeping the sides away from the face.

Recommended Products:

Volume in the sides will help this hairstyle look better from the front. Before you blow dry, apply Big Sexy Hair Root Pump Plus Mousse.

Hair Type:

Hair that is medium to fine is best for this hairstyle. If your hair is too heavy, you might have a hard time keeping your barrel curls in place.

Face Shape:

Sweeping the sides down and back in the front of this will compliment square, oval or heart shaped faces.

Tip:

To help your half-updo stay in place, backcomb it at the base first so the bobby pins have something to grab onto.

Braided Bridal Updo

Photo by Ciara Richardson Photography

A classic updo gets an update look with a braid going across the top in the back.

Recommended Products:

Big Sexy Hair Powder Play is an amazing product you have to try. This product will add grip to your roots making bobby pins stay in place better.

Hair Type:

The longer and thicker the hair, the better! Braids don’t show up as well with thin hair.

Face Shape:

Updos in the back are a classic choice for brides because they flatter nearly every face shape.

Tip:

When doing this style, create the braid very last. If you do it first it can get lost in the do while doing it last will ensure that the braid stands out.
