Wedding hairstyles for medium hair: ideas and workshops

All the girls who become brides dream of look­ing espe­cial­ly beau­ti­ful at the wed­ding. And now, when the dress and shoes are bought, it is the turn to choose hair styling.

Fashion trends

Wed­ding hair­styles are being improved from year to year and sur­prise with the rich­ness of mod­els. Medi­um length hair is the biggest con­cern, because there are so many options, and you need to stop at one thing.

Wed­ding hair­styles for medi­um hair — an abun­dance of dif­fer­ent options, the oppor­tu­ni­ty to try dif­fer­ent styles, cre­ate an orig­i­nal image. Cur­rent trends sug­gest using var­i­ous bunch­es, braids, weav­ing and styling. Unlike pre­vi­ous years, no arti­fi­cial bouf­fants — every­thing is extreme­ly nat­ur­al.

The bride’s hair­style should look casu­al. For these pur­pos­es, flow­ers or rib­bons are some­times inter­wo­ven, hair is dec­o­rat­ed with head­bands and diadems. Usu­al­ly shoul­der length is enough to make a won­der­ful, ele­gant hair­style. Lots of sug­ges­tions for using the veil. Depend­ing on its length, the styling also changes.


  • Min­i­mal­ism. Fem­i­nin­i­ty and ele­gant sim­plic­i­ty will nev­er go out of style, so the most ordi­nary smooth bun can trans­form a bride. If she has a long swan neck, an open-top dress, then the image will look very impres­sive. The knot can be placed high on the crown or at the back of the head, dec­o­rat­ed with beau­ti­ful hair­pins or flow­ers. In this case, a veil of any length will do. Since such a hair­style tears off the face as much as pos­si­ble, it needs to be giv­en max­i­mum atten­tion. Styl­ists sug­gest focus­ing on the eyes and includ­ing large ear­rings in the image. The great advan­tage of this hair­style is its sta­bil­i­ty — you can dance and move as much as you like.
  • The Greek style still has the palm. It should be not­ed that when choos­ing it, you need to fol­low the direc­tion to the last detail. Then the image will be irre­sistible. Rib­bons and flow­ers are woven into the orig­i­nal braids, not only arti­fi­cial, but also liv­ing. They also use head­bands and crowns, dec­o­rat­ed with pre­cious stones or rhine­stones. Com­plex weaves are com­bined with a veil, but, as a rule, after mar­riage is reg­is­tered, it is removed so as not to hide the beau­ty of the styling. Braids, like the bun, open the shoul­ders, so the empha­sis is again placed on the shoul­ders and décol­leté. How­ev­er, the abun­dance of rib­bons and flow­ers excludes the use of mas­sive ear­rings.
  • Retro. Odd­ly enough, but this style is always in fash­ion. At the same time, he is ele­gant­ly sim­ple, which is expressed not only in the hair­style, but also in the out­fit. The girls who gave pref­er­ence to him choose mini-dress­es and bright make­up. Among jew­el­ry, pearls win. Large waves are fixed with var­nish. They can be play­ful­ly laid or tak­en into a smooth bun at the back of the head with a wave laid from the front strand. A large fab­ric flower is some­times fixed in the hair. Short veils, var­i­ous hats or pills are also pop­u­lar.
  • Nat­u­ral­ness. For brides who eschew puffy crino­lines in favor of sim­ple dress­es, hair­styles with loose hair are per­fect. In this case, it is bet­ter to use a light veil made of translu­cent fab­rics. Loose styling is curls, from which they cre­ate a free fly­ing image or slight­ly disheveled. In any case, it will be nat­ur­al, sweet and empha­size youth­ful beau­ty.
  • Boho. Style tops the rank­ing of the most pop­u­lar in recent times. He col­lect­ed the eth­nic fea­tures of hip­pies, Indi­ans, gyp­sies. Boho style hair looks like tou­sled braids or wind­blown curls. The main role is played by acces­sories woven into small braids or large braids: rib­bons, rib­bons, leather straps, feath­ers, monists. Hats and head­bands are wide­ly used.

We select for features

A wed­ding hair­style, like any oth­er, is select­ed tak­ing into account the type of face. Then you can not only trans­form, but also adjust its shape.

Round face

In this case, brides need to slight­ly length­en the oval, for which use the fol­low­ing set­tings.

  • a face framed by curls-curls laid in a straight part­ing;
  • high styling with fleece;
  • bunch­es of large vol­ume on a straight or side part­ing, in which dec­o­ra­tions in the form of diadems and hoops will be appro­pri­ate;
  • Greek style, and styl­ists advise using curls or com­plex weaves laid on one side;
  • var­i­ous asym­met­ric styling.

When choos­ing jew­el­ry, round shapes are not rec­om­mend­ed.

Oval face

Brides with a per­fect oval are suit­able for any hair­style, except for high bouf­fants and buns. There­fore, when choos­ing, they need to cor­re­spond to the gen­er­al style, giv­en the struc­ture of the hair.

Trapeze face

In this case, girls need to light­en the mas­sive bot­tom of the face. To do this, the accents are moved clos­er to the crown. As styling, styl­ists advise using cor­ru­ga­tions on the roots, high styling with fleece and long curls just below the cheeks. As for jew­el­ry, it is bet­ter to choose mas­sive hair­pins, volu­mi­nous flow­ers or hoops.

triangular face

For a heart-shaped face, hair­styles in a nat­ur­al style are suit­able. You can sim­ply twist the curls from the bot­tom onto the curl­ing iron. Hair­styles with long puffy bangs or high round­ed hair­styles will also be appro­pri­ate.

Straight hair

If the hair is straight, then it can be eas­i­ly twist­ed with the help of var­i­ous devices: curl­ing irons, curlers, stylers. But if the bride is the own­er of beau­ti­ful, smooth and thick hair that casts a healthy sheen, but you should not hide or mask it. Their beau­ti­ful look will adorn any out­fit. Such hair can either be left loose, slight­ly empha­siz­ing with a string of pearls, or laid in a smooth ele­gant bun, dec­o­rat­ed with a comb or an ele­gant dia­dem.

curly hair

If the bride has a shock of curls, then they are always dif­fi­cult to style. It is quite dif­fi­cult to straight­en them, so it is bet­ter to put them in a neat hair­style with the help of hair­pins and hair­pins, fix them with var­nish and dec­o­rate with a veil or dia­dem. In the case of nat­ur­al curls that lie in large waves, hair­styles using var­i­ous styling prod­ucts are suit­able. They can be curled on large curlers to give them uni­for­mi­ty.

By the way, styl­ists rec­om­mend curly girls not to be afraid to exper­i­ment. They are very suit­able hair­styles in the boho style, which com­bines ele­ments of romance, free­dom and youth­ful ease.

Thin hair

Brides with thin medi­um length hair should not be upset about the dif­fi­cul­ties when choos­ing a hair­style. Mod­ern spe­cial­ists offer a large num­ber of options.

  • You can get a styl­ish hair­cut. In this case, cas­cad­ing or “torn” vari­eties are suit­able. Mul­ti-stage visu­al­ly add vol­ume and den­si­ty.
  • Col­or­ing. Styl­ists rec­om­mend high­light­ing or col­or­ing. Mul­ti-col­ored strands also increase the vol­ume of the hair­style. How­ev­er, you should choose a pro­fes­sion­al col­orist so that the light and dark shades are not harsh, oth­er­wise exces­sive band­ing will kill the whole effect.
  • Lay­ing. Own­ers of thin hair should pay atten­tion to small curls with the effect of “wet hair”, bouf­fant or large retro waves, which give splen­dor and vol­ume.
  • The use of var­i­ous over­head acces­sories: strands, tails, over­lays, hair­pieces, hair­pieces.

Thick hair

The dif­fi­cul­ty of styling on straight thick hair is that they unrav­el under their own weight. There­fore, com­plex weaves require good fix­a­tion. Very thick hair, gath­ered up, will make the image heav­ier, so it is bet­ter to leave the hair par­tial­ly flow­ing. “Disheveled” style is com­plete­ly con­traindi­cat­ed for this type.

Of course, styling of any weav­ing is suit­able. Var­i­ous smooth bun­dles dec­o­rat­ed with rib­bons and flow­ers, hair bows are great win-win options. Curls also look spec­tac­u­lar, but they are hard to keep for the whole day, as they straight­en out under their own weight.

The best styling for a wedding

For the bride

The veil remains a tra­di­tion­al wed­ding dec­o­ra­tion. It comes in dif­fer­ent types and per­fect­ly com­ple­ments the hair­style.

  • A short­ened ver­sion of the veil made of light and airy fab­ric does not bur­den the gen­tle image of the bride. Var­i­ous acces­sories are used to secure it. Styl­ists advise using high styling or retro style. All kinds of braids look good with a short veil.
  • Var­i­ous hats with a small veil are a styl­ish acces­so­ry that trans­forms the bride.
  • Veils are suit­able for such a style as retro, and will also dec­o­rate sim­ple smooth hair­styles, pony­tails and braids.
  • A long veil is cho­sen by brides for a wed­ding. It will also help to hide some defects in appear­ance. Hair­styles for such a veil empha­size the facial design, since the back view will be closed. High mod­els are pop­u­lar: babettes and bunch­es, com­ple­ment­ed by weav­ing and play­ful curls. Light waves from bangs or front strands also look inter­est­ing.
  • A veil in the form of a man­til­la will cre­ate a gen­tle, clean look inher­ent in Span­ish girls before the wed­ding. The hair­style should jus­ti­fy the mod­esty of style, not be defi­ant. As a rule, hair is removed in a low pony­tail or left loose. Since expen­sive lace is used for the man­til­la, no oth­er dec­o­ra­tions are required.
  • A sin­gle-tiered veil looks advan­ta­geous in a lacon­ic style. Sim­ple ele­gant hair­styles are suit­able for her — loose hair is not rec­om­mend­ed. The most rel­e­vant option are hair­styles with tight braids. The dress itself is attached in the cen­ter and dec­o­rat­ed with rib­bons or lace.
  • Bunk veil is the most pop­u­lar mod­el. It is suit­able for both civ­il and church cer­e­monies. Lush, well-fixed hair­styles are com­bined with it. The styling must be care­ful­ly fixed so that the veil does not dishev­el it. Hair­styles with a dia­dem, sep­a­rate flow­ers or a wreath are pop­u­lar.
  • A mul­ti-tiered veil looks very impres­sive, but it is dif­fi­cult to choose a hair­style option for it. Such a mod­el sug­gests a chic look, so sim­ple styling is out of place here. The styl­ists offer to focus on high struc­tures, dec­o­rat­ed with intri­cate weav­ing and var­i­ous dec­o­ra­tive acces­sories, such as a tiara with a crown.

Many mod­ern girls refuse veils, focus­ing on beau­ti­ful­ly styled hair.

  • A bun is a clas­sic hair­style that is used at all times. It seems that it is too sim­ple for a wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion, but this is a delu­sion. With its help, the image becomes ele­gant, fem­i­nine and gen­tle. If the bride has fine hair, then such a hair­style will increase the vol­ume due to over­head ele­ments: hair­pieces and pos­tures. The beam can be smooth or lush, high (at the crown) and low (at the back of the head). It lends itself to exper­i­men­ta­tion, giv­ing the oppor­tu­ni­ty to fan­ta­size when cre­at­ing orig­i­nal designs. A high­light for any age will be play­ful curls fram­ing the face. For young brides, such a move will give romance, more mature — youth and fresh­ness. The bun is very prac­ti­cal when worn, as the hair is gath­ered and secure­ly fas­tened. Dec­o­rate the hair­style with beau­ti­ful hair­pins, flow­ers, combs with rhine­stones or beads, some mod­els sug­gest diadems or tiaras. Lux­u­ri­ous shiny hair does not require frills in the form of jew­el­ry — they are beau­ti­ful in them­selves.

  • Braids remain one of the favorites among wed­ding hair­styles. For medi­um hair, there are count­less exam­ples. With the help of weav­ing, you can give the hair­style a solemn look. In addi­tion, such styling is held firm­ly and for a long time, which is impor­tant. Var­i­ous braids and pig­tails not only act as the main hair­style, but are also used as an ele­ment in oth­ers. One exam­ple is the French water­fall styling. It is rec­om­mend­ed to use rib­bons, flow­ers, strings of beads, rhine­stones, tiaras or head­bands as dec­o­ra­tions. Braids are the option when there are no rep­e­ti­tions — for each bride, the hair­style is indi­vid­ual.

Among the most pop­u­lar for own­ers of medi­um length hair, the fol­low­ing are worth high­light­ing:

  • Greek braid (fresh flow­ers are often woven into it);
  • a volu­mi­nous braid braid­ed on one side (since it is cre­at­ed not from three strands, but more, it looks inter­est­ing and orig­i­nal);
  • French water­fall (com­bines weav­ing with flow­ing curls).
  • Wed­ding “shell” sim­ple in exe­cu­tion, but this is what she empha­sizes ele­gance. In order not to weigh down the image, you should care­ful­ly approach the choice of hair jew­el­ry. Small flow­ers along the shell, hair­pins with rhine­stones, a string of pearls or a medi­um-sized hair­pin on one side are appro­pri­ate. The front strand, laid (like an oblique bang) on ​​one side, looks very nice.
  • Bow for a coquette. Medi­um hair allows you to cre­ate an inter­est­ing hair­style in the shape of a bow. It should be under­stood that such styling in itself is an orna­ment, so oth­er acces­sories will be super­flu­ous. The bow is placed either on the crown or on the side. The hair­style should cor­re­spond to the gen­er­al con­cept of the out­fit — light airi­ness and romance.
  • Loose curls. Some girls think that this is the eas­i­est styling, but it’s not. Since curls or waves are sup­posed to fall freely, they are not fixed by any­thing, but are only fixed with var­nish. There­fore, street walks are fraught with the fact that the hair­style will become disheveled and require addi­tion­al actions to restore the orig­i­nal appear­ance. But it looks the most nat­ur­al, is dec­o­rat­ed with dif­fer­ent types of acces­sories, is appro­pri­ate with any bangs.

For a girlfriend

Brides­maids, when going to a wed­ding, must adhere to cer­tain rules of eti­quette. First­ly, in no case do not strive to out­shine the hero of the occa­sion — this is her hol­i­day. Sec­ond­ly, do not look vul­gar. But this does not mean that you need to be a “gray mouse” that can get lost in the crowd. The image should be nat­ur­al, empha­size fem­i­nin­i­ty and nat­u­ral­ness.

  • Hol­ly­wood Waves - a clas­sic type of hair­style relat­ed to retro style. It is char­ac­ter­ized by volu­mi­nous large curls of the same size, their free move­ment, nat­u­ral­ness, expressed in soft lines. Accord­ing to the clas­si­cal canons, the waves fit on one side, but now it is allowed on both sides, while the part­ing can be oblique or straight. For medi­um length hair, the hair­style looks charm­ing and styl­ish. For younger ladies, smooth soft lines are appro­pri­ate, with­out steep creas­es. Then the image is more roman­tic. To add fem­i­nin­i­ty, an out­fit with an open line of shoul­ders and a neck will help, which demon­strates vul­ner­a­bil­i­ty and ten­der­ness.
  • Loose curls. The eas­i­est styling option is sim­ple curls. You can make them your­self using curlers or a curl­ing iron, or you can con­tact a styl­ist. To make the curls nat­ur­al, there are sev­er­al wind­ing meth­ods:
  1. in dif­fer­ent direc­tions;
  2. a tourni­quet is first twist­ed from a strand, and then it is wound onto a curl­ing iron.

The hair­style is dec­o­rat­ed with a dec­o­ra­tive flower on one side or a head­band with a flo­ral design.

  • For lovers of eth­nic style, styling in the style of “boho” is suit­able. They are very pop­u­lar late­ly, they look nat­ur­al, relaxed and inter­est­ing.
  • Curly tail. Curled hair is pulled back into a loose pony­tail.
  • A low bun at the back of the head is also espe­cial­ly pop­u­lar. A bun is formed from the back of the hair, dec­o­rat­ed with rib­bons, flow­ers, rhine­stones, accord­ing to the image. The face remains “slight­ly knocked out” curls. The beam can be smooth or volu­mi­nous.
  • Semi-loose hair with ele­ments of weav­ing. Due to braids, orig­i­nal solu­tions are obtained in a sim­ple design.

For Mom

For moth­ers of brides, the cel­e­bra­tion is also excit­ing — you want to look ele­gant, fem­i­nine and irre­sistible at your daugh­ter’s wed­ding. Styl­ists offer sev­er­al styling options that refresh the face, mak­ing it look younger.

  • Curls. To do this, the hair is part­ed and, start­ing from the bot­tom, curled with a curl­ing iron. By twist­ing the curls in dif­fer­ent direc­tions, you can achieve vol­ume. If nec­es­sary, the curls near the face are fixed with invis­i­bil­i­ty. Wide, free-flow­ing waves reju­ve­nate the face, mak­ing the hair­style more play­ful.
  • Clas­sic bun at the back. It can be done using a spe­cial tool — a roller. The strands are gath­ered at the back into a pony­tail, then even­ly wound onto the roller, cov­er­ing it com­plete­ly. The result­ing bun­dle is fixed with hair­pins and the entire hair­style is fixed with var­nish.

  • French bunch — “shell”. The tech­nique is sim­i­lar to the clas­sic bun, but it is locat­ed along the back of the head. The hair­style slight­ly rais­es the hair at the crown, slight­ly length­en­ing the oval of the face. The styling looks very styl­ish, it can be dec­o­rat­ed with studs with pre­cious stones or pearls.
  • Own­ers of curly hair can be advised a high bun at the top. To do this, the hair is col­lect­ed in a pony­tail, a roller is put on it, the hair is twist­ed under it in a spi­ral and secured with hair­pins. If you release a few strands, then the hair­style will sparkle and look nat­ur­al.
  • Semi-loose curls. The hair is twist­ed from below half the length with the help of a styler. Then two curls to the right and left of the face are con­nect­ed at the back of the head, you can pre-twist them togeth­er. All hair is fixed with var­nish.
  • Greek style is suit­able not only for brides, but also for their moth­ers. The only dif­fer­ence is that the adult gen­er­a­tion is not offered tech­ni­cal­ly com­plex hair­styles with weav­ing and the use of var­i­ous dec­o­ra­tions: they will only make the image heav­ier. But if you wind your hair on the back of the head­band, form­ing a lush bun and leav­ing a cou­ple of “naughty” curls in front, it will turn out ele­gant and fem­i­nine.
  • Smooth retro styling is not suit­able for every­one, but only for own­ers of a per­fect face, since such a hair­style com­plete­ly opens and focus­es on it.
  • High styling is still rel­e­vant and pop­u­lar. These include “babette”, fleece, shell and oth­ers.


Beau­ti­ful hair­styles for the bride or her brides­maids can be done inde­pen­dent­ly. For exam­ple, options with an elas­tic band to cre­ate a bun at the crown or at the back of the head using weav­ing ele­ments.

low beam

  • Clean hair is care­ful­ly combed and smoothed to make the crown smooth.
  • A braid is woven from the front strands from right to left and fluffed up for vol­ume. The end is secured with a rub­ber band.
  • From the remain­ing hair, a tail is formed at the back of the head.
  • A cush­ion is put on it.
  • The hair is even­ly dis­trib­uted over the roller, clos­ing it. The ends are fixed with studs or invis­i­ble.
  • The tail of the braid wraps the result­ing bun­dle at its base, hid­ing the attach­ment points.

high beam

  • Clean­ly washed and combed hair is col­lect­ed in a pony­tail at the crown.
  • It is thread­ed into a roller.
  • The hair is even­ly dis­trib­uted over the roller, clos­ing it.
  • This is fol­lowed by the imple­men­ta­tion of var­i­ous dec­o­ra­tive ele­ments, depend­ing on the imag­i­na­tion. You can form a bow from the remain­ing tips and fas­ten it to the side, you can weave a braid from the cen­ter of the tail, grad­u­al­ly cov­er­ing the roller with it. Such volu­mi­nous hair­styles open the face as much as pos­si­ble and can be dec­o­rat­ed with any acces­sories. In addi­tion, mas­sive ear­rings are appro­pri­ate with a high beam.

Hairstyle “French waterfall”

It looks very impres­sive, but at the same time it is sim­ple, there­fore it is avail­able for inde­pen­dent exe­cu­tion. With its help, you can style not only straight hair, but also nat­ur­al curls, and the length of the hair does not play a role.

  • At the ini­tial stage, the hair is combed smooth­ly and divid­ed into two parts: upper and low­er. The divi­sion bound­ary should pass at the place where the braid will pass.
  • Next, they begin to weave a braid from the tem­ple. It should be remem­bered that the thick­er the strands, the more volu­mi­nous the weav­ing will be. The strands are alter­nate­ly tak­en from the upper and low­er parts. “Streams” are formed from the upper strands: they are intro­duced into the braid once and released.
  • The water­fall can be woven from one side, or from two, then the junc­tion is fixed with stealth or hair­pins.
  • The left strands should be twist­ed onto a curl­ing iron to make light curls.

When weav­ing on medi­um hair, it is rec­om­mend­ed to pay atten­tion to the fact that the high­er the braid starts, the more nat­ur­al it looks. If the hair was pre-col­ored, then the hair­style will sparkle with new col­ors. The most spec­tac­u­lar French water­fall is obtained on curly hair. For them, you do not need to cre­ate curls — they have already been giv­en by nature.
