Springy options for your big day.
Spring is definitely our favorite season for weddings. The weather is just warming up and feeling fresh, flowers are blooming and it feels like the perfect time for a wedding. For those lucky gals getting ready to get hitched this spring, we’re pretty much overloaded on bridal hair ideas. We’re thinking lots of romantic braids and of course flowers in your hair! It is springtime after all. We’ve boiled it all down to our top 15 picks for bridal hair ideas this season.
Our Favorite Bridal Hair Ideas for Spring
1. Triple Low Buns
This is one of our favorite bridal hair ideas of all-time because it’s so elegant but so easy! Perfect for the bridge going the DIY route, you are essentially twisting together three even buns, creating a romantic and on-trend hairstyle. To achieve this look check out our hair buns with twisted rolls tutorial. Just make sure that you have a bunch of bobby pins on-hand to ensure that your buns stay secure throughout the ceremony. And it’s not just a great look for long hair, short hair also looks great in this easy updo.
2. Croissant Bun
Here are two of our favorite things combined: an elegant croissant bun and real flowers decorating updos. A croissant bun is another great choice for DIY brides, we just suggest getting a little help for the flower arranging. You can follow our tutorial for this dreamy pastry-inspired updo. Just make sure to set your style for the occasion before adding in the flowers. We suggest the Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Hairspray for extra protection to lock in this style.
3. Fishtail Braided Half-Updo
This fishtail updo is what dreams are made of. We love how the texture of the large braids contrasts yet complements the tighter curls. This braided updo is made even more special by stopping every few inches. This gives the braid even more texture and helps to have it stand out. That gorgeous hair accessory doesn’t hurt either.
4. Classic Fishtail Braid
For a more simple take on the fishtail braid, just go for one! A style like this classic side-fishtail braid is perfection. We’re especially big fans when worn with a strapless dress, to give a little more interest. As an added bonus, side-swept styles are great for outdoor weddings in spring when it’s a bit warm! Bonus: you’ll keep cool and collected, all while rocking a cool braid.
5. Elegant Top Knot
Another way to keep your hair off your neck in total style? This gorgeous top knot updo. This style is gorgeous on every hair type and face shape, so it’s a safe option if choosing a style is stressing you out. If you don’t have the most voluminous (or long) hair, don’t fret! A hairdresser can easily help create a voluminous style or work in extensions to give your hair a little more bulk to create this voluminous top knot.
6. Oversized Curls With Oversized Flower Crown
This style is here for our mega-glam brides to be! We’re thinking the bigger, the better goes for both your hair and flowery accessories! These voluminous curls can be created with a larger, two-inch curling iron. After letting the curls set, you can tease for even more volume. Top it all off with a larger-than-life flower crown, and hit that aisle baby!
7. Side-Swept Hair
We did say we’re loving side-swept hair this season! If braids aren’t your thing, try it with some loose curls or your natural texture instead. Wearing your hair all over one shoulder makes it stand out from your everyday hairstyle. For outdoor weddings with your hair worn down, we suggest setting your look with the TRESemmé Climate Protection Finishing Spray. That way, if your spring day is a little more humid and hot than you were expecting, you’re still covered.
8. Simply Textured Tresses
For an even more elegantly simple style, wear your natural hair texture but with just a little bit more oomph. A little light teasing here or there, or a windswept take on your hair is just the ticket. Top it off with a headband to match your dress to make sure your whole wedding look is nice and cohesive.
9. Natural Curls
The exact same thing goes for naturally curly girls! We adore natural curly hair and think it should be shown off, especially on special occasions. We suggest that curls have a little extra protection from the elements to keep a defined (non-frizzy) look. Just prep your hair with the Dove Absolute Curls Supreme Creme Serum, before drying with a diffuser for best results.
10. Slicked-Down Chignon
For a totally different take on our styles we’ve shown so far, try a slicked-down look. We’re a little bit obsessed with the wet hair look ever since fashion week. Wear with a stick-straight center part and a tight chignon for a refined, demure look.
11. Simple Headband
We’ve had our fair share of simple bridal hair ideas so far, but we’re pretty sure this one takes the (wedding) cake. For the ultimate in low maintenance looks, just pop on a headband to match your dress. Of course, we have a soft spot for florals, but you could go for a cool pearl headband or a pretty blinged-out, glitzy headband.
12. Twirled Chignon
How totally perfect is this twirled chignon? It’s the thing ballet buns dream of! We highly suggest getting a helping hand creating this style because your average twist and secure isn’t going to cut it. A stylist can help you create that perfectly coiled look while hiding the bobby pins to make sure nothing disrupts this perfect style.
13. Cascading Waves
We love a waterfall of wavy hair because it will never go out of style! We think timeless hairstyles are best for wedding hair, especially for not cringing at the photos in 20 years. You can create these big waves by curling your hair with a large two-to-three-inch curling iron. The larger the curling iron, the wavier your curls will be!
14. Crown Braid
A crown braid is one of those super-trendy styles that we’ll concede for wedding hair. It’s mostly down to similar milkmaid braids that have been popular through the ages. We love simple crown braids, for the DIY bride. Or, if you’ll have a little help on the hair front, we say go all out and wear a voluminous and textured crown braid like this one.
15. Curly Low Ponytail
Our last style is a nod to our favorite popular hairstyle of 2017: the low ponytail. Made for a bridal situation, we think romantic twists and curls are your best bet. To get a piecey effect and help curls stand out, we suggest applying just a little bit of TRESemmé Flawless Curls Extra Hold Mousse to your curls. It will keep those curls defined without having them feel sticky.
