A beautiful hairstyle is an integral part of the image of the bride, which can affect both this very image and her mood. After all, if fragile styling does not pass the test of traveling on a wedding car, various dances, rituals and competitions, this can overshadow the bride’s joy of the event. Therefore, pigtails are back in fashion. This is a great option for a girl who wants to shine throughout the celebration and not check the style of styling every minute.
Features of choice
There are several points that will help you choose the right hairstyle.
Pay attention to growth.
- Tall girls will not go high styling or loose hair. It is worth giving preference to hairstyles with braids for medium length.
- Owners of short stature should give up short haircuts. And also do not collect hair in an even bun. It is better to let your hair down and complement it with jewelry in the form of a crown.
Hairstyles will be different for owners of different types of faces.
- For a round face, high hairstyles from straight hair are suitable.
- To smooth out the sharpness of a rectangular face, soft waves should be preferred. A massive French braid or donut-shaped weaving is well suited.
- Girls with a triangular face type are characterized by a high forehead and a small chin. A combination of straight and curly strands can add symmetry, and thick straight bangs will hide a high forehead. An excellent option would be a tousled braid.
- Owners of the oval shape are lucky — they can afford any hairstyle.
When choosing a hairstyle, you should also consider the bride’s dress:
- if there are many decorative elements in the outfit, it is better to braid a simple braid on one side;
- a simple dress will complement the original styling with the addition of a veil or a floral wreath;
- dresses in ethnic and eco style perfectly complement simple braids, as well as slight negligence and addition of hair with a rim or flowers.
Braiding for long hair
Hairstyles with elements of weaving are increasingly chosen for special occasions. They give femininity and romance to the look of the bride, while retaining their appearance for a long time throughout the celebration, and the bride does not have to worry about the accuracy of her image in the photographs.
The traditional pigtail is quite easy to weave due to the alternate crossing of three strands. But braids have quite a few variations. One of these is a spit-waterfall. The peculiarity of this hairstyle is that the weaving consists of two parts, and the third falls freely. This amazing hairstyle consists of many such curls. Due to the unusual weaving, a special effect of tenderness and romance of the image is achieved.
The composition of two or more braids will look original. Moreover, the direction of the braids can be any, forming a kind of twist. Hanging strands can be beautifully curled or gathered into a knot. The only negative of this hairstyle is that the veil is not suitable for her. But this is not essential — any jewelry will suit this hairstyle.
Greek braid to the side
A girl who dreams of a Greek wedding, who wants to look more beautiful than any goddess, should pay attention to a hairstyle in the appropriate style. First, a simple braid is woven, followed by styling to the side or in the opposite direction. With this hairstyle, the effect of a laurel wreath is created, elegantly framing the head.
If the bride has thin or weak hair, it is better to braid a light braid and pull the strands. A braided ribbon, small roses or pearl jewelry will perfectly complement the hairstyle. And you should also give preference to a straight-cut Greek dress and appropriate accessories.
Hairstyles for medium hair
There are many hairstyles with braids, so you can always choose the one that suits you the most. Braids go to long-haired girls, and those with slightly shorter curls. You can consider some options for hairstyles with braids.
Braided hair turning into a “bun”
This hairstyle is perfect for tall ladies who want to look romantic and gentle. This hairstyle is distinguished by its durability — it will retain its original appearance after any active actions. The hairstyle consists of a pair of braids on the sides (any, at the discretion of the newlywed), gathered at the back of the head into a “bun” — a kind of bun.
The bun can be made from plain or braided hair. Usually placed at the top or back. You should pay attention to the choice of accessory for this hairstyle. A small hat with a veil would be ideal. If the bride wants to have a veil in the image, it is better to fix it under the “bun”.
Openwork air braid
One of the most popular hairstyle options is openwork weaving. With such a hairstyle, the image of the bride turns out to be exquisite and unique. The essence of the technique is that individual small strands are pulled out of the pigtail. The result is an airy pattern that makes the hairstyle more original and intricate. The ends of the hair are usually collected at the back of the head or woven into a braid.
The formation of a hairstyle begins with weaving a spikelet, placing it in the center of the head or slightly shifting to one side. Variations with two or more braids also look interesting. Jewelry with flowers, rhinestones or beads will give the hairstyle a special femininity.
Another unusual option for a wedding hairstyle. This stylish hairstyle goes with any dress and goes well with a veil. As weaving into the main strands, from which the braid is woven, smaller ones are woven from other sides. The braid will turn out more voluminous if you spray your hair with a styling agent before weaving and lightly comb it.
A French braid braided “inside out” will make the image of the newlywed even more original. Weaving starts from the back of the head to the forehead, while the hair is combed forward. A bun is made from the ends of the hair, under which a veil is fixed. Hairstyle can be supplemented with a ribbon, pearls and other accessories for every taste.
Braiding for short hair
Pigtails are available not only for owners of long hair. Short-haired girls can also afford to braid beautifully. In this case, it is not necessary to artificially lengthen the hair or use hairpieces. One has only to choose a styling that matches the type of hair, and then even their small length will not become an obstacle to creating a romantic image of the bride.
This braid is a classic hairstyle for celebrations and will perfectly complement any outfit with any length of hair. If you can’t afford long braids hanging off your shoulders, then such weaving will make your look brighter, and if you put your hair on the back of your head, the look will become more dynamic. This styling looks stylish and often becomes the choice of many brides.
The pigtail starts from the temple, weaves over the forehead and ends on the opposite side. The rest of the strands can be laid at will. On such a hairstyle, you can easily fix any hairpins, as well as a veil, but it is better to place it along the rim.
If the bride at the wedding wants to be a princess, then for this it is not necessary to wear a diadem. An excellent addition to the image of a person of royal blood will be a themed hairstyle — a braid-crown.
The principle of formation is similar to the creation of a braid-rim, but the main difference is that the braid-crown completely wraps around the head. Weaving with different techniques is allowed, but the stronger it is, the stronger the hairstyle will be. A braid, woven according to the French technique with stretching strands, will give the image of femininity and festivity. A hairstyle can be formed not by one braid, but by two or three. With such a crown on her head, any bride will become a truly fabulous princess.
Braid on bangs
Owners of sophisticated features should choose a hairstyle that will open the face and emphasize its beauty. Weaving on bangs fits this description. One of the types of such weaves is a bohemian braid. This hairstyle will fit perfectly into the concept of a retro or hippie wedding. It can be complemented with decorations that match the theme of the wedding. It can be feathers or a bandage.
You can do with the remaining hair in any way — you can leave it straight, curl it, weave more braids or collect it at the crown in a ponytail, make a flower or a shell.
Hairstyles with braids are universal, suitable for any bride, for any outfit and for any celebration. Each bride will be able to choose a hairstyle to her liking in order to look stylish at the wedding, without worrying about the safety of the styling and enjoying the holiday. And some types of braids go well with any jewelry and veil. Therefore, such styling is often chosen by brides for their wedding. And this choice is always successful.
