Pretty Bridal Hairstyle Ideas for a Beach Wedding

1. Side Fishtail Braid

Braids make for charming bridal hairstyles, but take yours up a notch by ditching the regular three-strand one. Instead, go for a fishtail braid. It looks intricate, but trust us, it’s easy. Just put your hair on one side and divide it into two sections. Then, take a small section from the edge of one side and cross it over to the center. Do the same on the other side. Keep doing this until you reach the tips of your hair and secure your braid with an elastic.

A loose, messy bun along with a headband braid makes for a relaxed wedding updo. The bun doesn’t even have to be perfectly shaped; loose strands are part of its charm.

If you’re putting your hair down for post-ceremony cocktails and reception, add a small braid to jazz up your down ‘do. Just part your hair on one side, then create a French braid on the side with more hair. Let the braid sit near your hairline so it looks like a headband. When the braid reaches your ear, tie the ends of the braid with an elastic.

9. Summer Festival Braid

This boho-chic ‘do is also a pretty wedding hairstyle for short hair. To style your bob or lob this way, create shallow waves by wrapping small sections of hair quickly around a curling wand. The waves will add texture to your hair. When you’re done curling all sections of your hair, finger-comb your waves to make them loose. Then, take a small section of hair and braid it loosely.

10. Half Updo With Flowers

Jazz up your wedding half-updo by putting small white flowers on your hair. You can go for a simple half ponytail or a half-up braid. But if you want to elevate your bridal look, create a flipped half-updo by getting a section of hair from both sides of your temples, tying these sections at the back of your hair, and inserting your ponytail in the tiny space above your elastic or hair tie.

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