10 Beautiful Wedding Hairstyles for Long Hair
Wedding Hairstyle Ideas and Inspiration
So you’ve probably been thinking about how you want to look on your wedding day – your dress, your make-up, your shoes and of course, your hair. The first and most important part of your look is your wedding dress! After you’ve chosen your wedding dress, you’ll see that everything else will begin to fall into place. This is because your dress will determine what type of hair and make-up you should go for. However, if you don’t have a certain hairstyle in mind, check out these beautiful wedding hairstyles for long hair. Wedding hairstyles can transform your look, for example, loose curls are more relaxed where an updo presents a more formal look.
If you have a crystal detailed corset, perhaps you can tie your hair up so that all the detail on the dress can be shown off. However, if you’re keen on wearing a bohemian wedding dress, flowy curls will definitely compliment this look. If you have long hair, you’re lucky enough to play around with plenty of options. We know that choosing the right wedding hairstyle can be overwhelming, so here are a few pictures to help you get inspired.

1. Updo With Classic Floral Headpiece
This looks works if you want to combine elegance with a hint of playfulness. If the theme of your wedding is classical or traditional, don’t go for a headpiece which is too striking or bold. A bolder headpiece works better for a more bohemian, modern or rustic look. However, small, delicate flowers such as baby’s breath will add softness to your look, while still maintaining a sophisticated feel.
2. Elegant Hairstyle with Pearl Details
Pearls will always look timeless and elegant – and match all types of wedding hairstyles! A hairstyle with pearl detail looks soft and romantic. If you are planning on going with a soft A-line cut or mermaid cut, this hairstyle will work perfectly, especially if there are pearl details to match on your dress. Remember that just a hint of detail can have the power of completing a look – less is more!
3. Elegant Soft Curls With Crystal Detail
This look reminds us so much of Lana Del Rey! The soft and perfect curls will work perfectly with a silky fitted dress or a dress with a tight mermaid fit. These type of wedding hairstyles are so old Hollywood – red carpet ready and completely glamorous for your wedding day. The little touch of crystal completes the look perfectly.
4. Grecian Inspired Wedding Hairstyle
Grecian inspired wedding hairstyles are super romantic and add plenty of detail to your look without going overboard on the accessories. Pair this look with a flowy Grecian style wedding dress and you’ll be instantly transformed into a Grecian Goddess on your big day. If you have long hair, this is a fun look to experiment with because of all the plaits and details. Think Khaleesi from Game of Thrones.
5. Long Flowy Hair With Floral Headband
We love the idea of a floral headband – it adds a fun dimension to any bridal look. We highly recommend a floral headband if you want to achieve a bohemian or a rustic look at on your wedding day. Pick floral pieces which tie into the colour scheme of your wedding. Loose curls down your back will look soft, romantic and playful. This is a great way to personalising your wedding look!
6. Grecian Inspired Headband
An alternative to a floral headband is a Grecian inspired headband. We love the small golden details – pair this look with a golden eye to achieve a full-blown Greek Goddess look.
7. High Bun
A high bun wedding hairstyle is striking, elegant and sophisticated. High bun wedding hairstyles will work best if there is plenty of detail on your wedding dress, or if you want to go for something super slick, modern and fashion forward. Add in some long earrings to enhance the look. The attention will be drawn to your face so be sure to get your wedding makeup on point for the photographs!
8. Low Bun
Alternatively, a low bun creates a softer and more romantic look. This is absolutely perfect for outdoor or garden weddings! Add a little hair accessory for fun – pearls, crystals or flowers will all do the trick.
9. Side Fishtail Braid
This look is absolutely perfect for the romantic bride. The style mixes a loose fishtail braid with random twists for a relaxed appearance. Finish the look by bringing out loose strands of hair to the face.
10. High Ponytail
If you have long hair, you’re lucky enough to pull this look off. Create some loose curls and tie your hair up in a high ponytail. This wedding hairstyle is elegant and draws focus to your face and your shoulders. However, the loose curls add softness and sweetness to this look.
