Wedding Hair Inspiration from Real Brides

One of the most important questions brides ask is how they should wear their hair on their wedding day. They will scour Pinterest, stalk fellow brides, ask everyone she knows and may still be torn. Ultimately, how you wear your hair on your wedding day is up to you! Our biggest tidbit of advice would be to wear your hair in a style that you feel comfortable wearing so that you feel confident all night long! We are showcasing a few real brides and how they wore their hair on their wedding day to provide some inspiration for all of our brides to be!

We adore this first hairstyle! This beautiful bride is wearing Style 1004 from Martina Liana which features a beautiful low back. Wearing your hair in a braid ensures that the details of the dress can still be showcased. The added baby’s breath gives the hairstyle a feminine and sweet touch!

When the back of your wedding dress looks like THIS, an updo is the move! It also doesn’t hurt to ask for a seriously stunning updo like the real bride! The loose, wide braid perfectly complements the floral lace of the gown and is truly stunning. When choosing your wedding hair, think of the elements of the gown that you want your hair to correlate with. In this case, she added the braid on the side of the dress where the lace begins on the illusion back.

Lastly, you can’t go wrong with half up half down! When wearing a larger dress like a ballgown, you may want to leave some hair down to balance out the fullness of the gown. Have your hairdresser throw in so fun twists when pulling your hair back to elevate the hairstyle.

We hope these real bride photos helped you visualize different ways that you can wear your hair on your wedding day! For more inspiration make sure to follow us on Instagram: Stella York Instagram, Essense of Australia Instagram and Martina Liana Instagram.
