braids + Hairstyles = Wedding

Whatever the hair length, braids make a fabulous addition to lots of wedding day hairstyles.

Braids never seem to go out of fashion they just evolve.

So, if you had planned to have a braided hairstyle for your wedding in 2020 but your plans were disrupted, one thing that needn’t change is your hairstyle.

Braids can be created in any hair length and hair type, straight or curly, long or short.

And because braids add depth and volume, they also work beautifully in fine hair.

The beautiful wedding hairstyle in this photo by Gemma Chase shows a bridal hairstyle that incorporates braids and hair extensions.

Half-up hairstyles & Braids

Introducing the half-up wedding hairstyle.

There is no limit to the variations of this all-time wedding classic.

Whether you opt to keep your hair straight or opt for soft curls, braids will add just that little bit extra.

So you’ll be sure to look totally gorgeous, yet still have that “I haven’t tried too hard’ kinda feel.

The combination of beachy waves with a pull-through braid keeps this wedding day hairstyle looking soft and relaxed. The perfect vibe for a summer wedding.

Brides of any age can carry off a half-up hairstyle and look gorgeous. However, I find my mature brides generally opt for slightly softer twists in the hair rather than braids.

Every little girl I’ve ever met loves braids.

So, to help keep your flower girls happy and sitting still in the stylist chair, offer them the chance to have a braid or 2.

I have lots of braid tutorials on my YouTube channel, why not take a look!

braids, wedding hairstyles & buns

The bun, another wedding hairstyle classic that has a dizzying number of options.

So, whether you opt for a high or low bun, your wedding day hairstyle will be as individual as you are.

The addition of braids into your low bun will give a little bit of extra interest, even in dark hair.

However, a quick note of caution. Braids can easily get lost in dark hair, particularly if the hair is all one solid colour.

Therefore, if you want your braids to be part of the main attraction it would be worth speaking to your hairdresser about having highlights or lowlights put in.
