Once you have picked out your bridal gown, it is time to start figuring out the rest of your wedding day look. The hairstyle which you select will be a big part of your overall style on that special day, and should match not only your gown, but the wedding location. These are some of the best beach wedding hairstyles for brides.
The hairstyles for a beach wedding should reflect the laid back attitude of the beach. Anything too polished, formal, or perfect will look unnatural with the sun and sand. Yet at the same time, you want your hair to be special, better than your everyday casual style. Also, it is important to factor in how the ocean breezes and the humid salt air can affect the way your hair behaves. With all that in mind, these are some of the bridal hairstyles which will really fit the bill.
If your hair is naturally wavy, wearing it mostly down can be beautiful for a beach wedding. Have the stylist use an anti-frizz potion to make sure that your waves don't turn into a frizzy mess. Leaving all of your hair down, however, can be too wild, especially on a windy day. A wonderful idea is to pull back just a section of hair from the sides or the top of the head and gently twist or braid them. This provides a good place to anchor your veil and bridal hair jewelry, and will make sure that you don't have hair blowing in your face during an outdoor ceremony on the beach.
Another gorgeous idea for a beach wedding hairstyle is to pull your hair back into a loose bun. For smooth hair, a knotted bun at the nape of the neck is lovely. Brides with wavy or more textural hair can think about pulling the hair back very gently so the natural waves are not pulled straight. Then gather into a low bun off to one side and festoon it with a tropical flower, such as a fuchsia hibiscus. The result will be both elegant and relaxed.
Brides with straight hair can wear it in a low polished ponytail for a beach wedding. Asymmetry is very stylish right now, and an off center pony will be right on trend. Definitely have this wedding hairdo done by a professional so that it looks special enough for a bride and does not look like the ponytail you might wear to the gym. Finish it off with a strand of crystal or pearl bridal hair jewelry wrapped around the base of the pony to hide the hairband.
If you are a barefoot on the beach type of bride, a braid might be your ideal wedding hairstyle. Braids have been making a comeback, and they are now done in ways that will not make you look like a schoolgirl. A soft braid (as opposed to a very contrived French braid) is a lovely option for a beachy bride. To allow the pretty hairstyle to show, choose a simple single layer veil and delicate hair ornaments, such as a set of hairpins. You will be ready to head to the beach and get married in style!
