Variants of wedding hairstyles with braids for hair of different lengths


  1. Fea­tures of choice

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.

  1. Tall girls will not go high styling or loose hair. It is worth giv­ing pref­er­ence to hair­styles with braids for medi­um length.
  2. 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.

  1. For a round face, high hair­styles from straight hair are suit­able.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

french braid

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.

Headband braid

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.
