1. Loose fishtail side braid

Beach wedding hairstyle rule number 1: keep it loose and relaxed. Your bridal hair has got to have a lot of chill, girl! And well, this loose fishtail side braid offers you that. It’s sweet and feminine, and would complement a flowy white dress and a fresh, sun-kissed makeup look.

Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable Shampoo

Editor’s tip: For a frizz-free hairstyle, wash your hair with Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable Shampoo and pair it with Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable Conditioner.

2. Boho-chic braided bangs

If you want a pretty and fun ‘do, go for this cute boho-chic braided bangs. Just create a deep side part, braid the the bangs all the way to one side, and finish off the look with a cute flower crown. Oh, and to get that nice texture and movement, spray your hair with TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray.

3. Messy low updo

*Sigh* We swoon. This dreamy look will definitely make your groom fall in love with you all over again! Messy just never looked this good!

P.S. To add a bit of sparkle to your bridal hair, use a pretty hair clip. Now you can choose to wear this look all the way through the reception (it’s so beautiful we’d wear it til the next day!), but if you want a bit of a transformation for the party, you can just free your hair loose after the ceremony—you’d be left with beautiful curls perfect for all the dancing and twirling that are about to happen.

4. Infinity twist half-up half-down

This is a more polished hairstyle, but it’s so dreamy and beach-perfect, we’re willing to make an exception and approve this sophisticated look for a wedding by the sea. Anyway, the loose waves at the bottom make up for the sleekness at the top, so it’s still relaxed enough for a beach wedding.

Dove Oxygen and Nourishment Shampoo

Editor’s tip: For waves that move and bounce, use Dove Oxygen & Nourishment Shampoo. It gives your hair volume and body so you can easily nail this look.

A look perfect for a super cash affair.

6. Beachy waves + half-up braids

This won’t be a list of hairstyles for brides about to get hitched by the beach without a beachy wave hairstyle. But since it’s a special occasion, we have to upgrade your regular beach waves and incorporate bridal braids. If the whole feel of your beach wedding is gearing towards the cool and casual, this look would be perfect for you.

Now you’re ready to say “I do”—to your groom, to the beach, and to these gorgeous bridal hairstyles!
