Alfresco summer weddings are the loveliest. But they’re also at the mercy of heat, humidity, wind and rain. We say, rather than worrying about a maintaining a perfectly sculpted and sleek style, why not opt for a romantic ’do that's carefree, a little bohemian and perhaps even welcomes a stray hair or two? Here, 20 gorgeous ideas we're stealing from real brides.
20 Hairstyles That Are Perfect for Summer Weddings
Messy Braid Headband
Perfect if your vibe is ethereal. And/or beachy.
Wild Pin-tuck Updo
The curlier (and more flower-festooned) the better.
Low And Loose Bun
Part your hair to the side and let your bangs swing wild and free.
Hot tip: Place the bun right at the middle of your head for mega volume.
Anyone else swooning over this double crown + beachy waves combo?
This simple bun meets center part situation is just the prettiest.
Knotted Crown Updo
We dig this gorgeous braided bun combo for thick-haired ladies especially.
French Braid Halo
Keep the braid weave loose and thick for tons of romance.
Twisted Low Bun
We especially love this look with ombre or balayage coloring.
Loose Side Pony
Sweep this pretty ‘do off to one shoulder, but leave a face-framing tendril on the other side.
Wavy Half Bun
Mermaid curls, FTW.
Sleek sides + teased crown = modern perfection.
We love these loose, glossy waves paired with a pearly princess topper.
Business in the back—wispy and whimsical in the front.
It doesn’t get more romantic than this look, gals.
Deep Side Part Updo
We love these twirled bangs, prettily pinned off to one side.
Wispy Off-center Bun
Go ahead, add in a rose or two.
“Garnish” with a pretty braided rosette right at the center.
Eucalyptus crown, optional. Wispy, romantic tendrils, mandatory.
