1. Braided half ponytail

A half ponytail is one of those classic hairstyles that suits any occasion. For your wedding, give it an extra classy twist by twisting the hair you’ll use for the ponytail into a loose milkmaid braid, and secure it to your veil with a headpiece. If you’re planning to wear statement earrings, this is the ‘do for you!

2. Textured Pixie

A pixie cut complements delicate lace and embroidery perfectly, making it the perfect foil to romantic, floaty frocks. Pair it with dewy, barely there makeup for an ethereal glow.

TONI&GUY Matte Texture Dry Shampoo

Editor’s tip: Use TONI&GUY Matte Texture Dry Shampoo to add volume to and remove grease from your hair, so you can avoid a flat, slicked back look during the reception.

3. Faux updo

Who says girls with short hair can’t wear an updo without using extensions? All you need to do is gather your hair to the back and pin it so it’ll resemble a French twist from behind.  Don’t worry about loose tendrils—just give the wisps in front a slight wave so they frame your face nicely. A bunch of fresh flowers on your crowning glory will complete your look.

4. Classic blowout

Not a fan of barrettes or tiaras? You will never go wrong with a classic blowout. This is a great wedding hairstyle that will suit any hair length, so it will look just as good on a pixie as it would on a lob. It’s also a great style to wear if you’re wearing a ballgown or a heavily embellished frock, as it keeps all the focus on your dress.

TRESemmé Smooth & Shine Shampoo

Editor’s tip: Remember to keep your hair healthy and shiny by using TRESemmé Smooth & Shine Shampoo followed by TRESemmé Smooth & Shine Conditioner at least a week before the big day! It would be best to use it on a regular basis, as well.

5. Bejeweled lob

If your hair is at that awkward grown out length, don’t fret: A few passes of the curling iron should do the trick. Use TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse afterward to define the curls and hold them all day. A bejeweled barrette and simple stud earrings give your look added romance.
