If you have long hair, you are in luck! There are numerous great looking ways in which to wear your hair for your wedding day. To help you narrow down the options, check out these gorgeous wedding hairstyles for long hair.
The key with long hair is to select a style which will keep your tresses under control all day long. You also want to take your veil and bridal hair jewelry into consideration when meeting with your stylist for a hair trial. By pulling back at least the front of your hair, you will give your veil a secure place to anchor so that it does not simply slide down the back of your head as you glide down the aisle. The more elaborate your hairdo, the more options you will have for bridal hair jewelry, as you will be able to fasten any type of comb, hairpin, or headband somewhere into the hairstyle and know that it will not move around.
One of the top trends in wedding hair right now is asymmetry. This is in keeping with the current obsession with asymmetrical wedding gowns, such as the glamorous one shoulder style. Just like the one shoulder gown, the prettiest off-center bridal hairstyles are chic and elegant. It needs to be polished enough to show that the hair is intentionally left-of-center; a messy ‘do will just looked like you put it together in a hurry and misplaced your bun or twist!
Low twists are among the most fabulous asymmetrical wedding hairstyles for long hair this year. Have your hairstylist gather all of your hair near the nape of your neck. Let the pulled back part be smooth and tidy, which allows you to tease the twist part without getting that overall messy appearance. The gathered section of hair at the nape of the neck can either be arranged into a loose twisted bun or a more polished smooth spiral. Complete the effect with a glamorous feather headpiece or a cluster of Swarovski crystal hairpins.
A ponytail can serve as the basis for several other stylish hairdos for long hair. A high ponytail wrapped in a piece of your hair is a fetching style that can look surprisingly polished and elegant. Somehow, in the hands of a professional, a bridal ponytail will look nothing like the casual pony that you throw together at the gym. The key is backcombing the top of the hair before pulling it back and smoothing it out to get a little lift off of the crown of your head. Leave the pony as is, or have it worked into a chic chignon.
Soft curls can be created to make a romantic wedding hairstyles with long hair. Loosely pinned curls and waves are soft and feminine for an “undone” updo. Or pull back the front of your hair, and allow cascades of soft curls to flow down over your shoulders. One caution: this style can quickly turn into a frizzy mass on a humid day, so it is a bridal hairdo best reserved for indoor or cool weather weddings.
There are so many fantastic options for long wedding hair that you will be able to find the perfect one. The best bridal hairstyles complement the style of the gown, the texture of your hair, and the shape of your face. Work with your favorite hairstylist to design the hairdo which will make you feel absolutely beautiful and chic on your wedding day.
