Gorgeous Bridal Hairstyles for Reception

If you are preparing for your big day, then we know how crucial the hair is in upping the wow factor of your whole look. It is but natural to be confused when you start going through the world of updos, half-updos, loose hair, knots, buns and chignons. A good bridal hairstyle can not just make you look great but also feel great. If you are unable to choose from the myriad bridal hairstyles, we give you a few options here to make you look stunning.

This is an elegant look with a braided chignon that is accentuated by a tiara in pearls and stones. It is sleek and can suit any contemporary wedding, while at the same time, the jewels will add an element of bling to the look. Part your hair either in the center or on the side, depending on what suits your face shape. Comb your hair and braid your hair and knot it into a chignon at the nape of your neck. Top it with your tiara.

Updos are a great way to style your hair for the wedding. If it is a messy updo, it makes the look more fun. To get this look, first curl your hair. Leave a few bangs to flatter your face and then tease the hair around the crown to mess it up. Section your hair into left, right and central part. Roll each section up and pin it up with a bobby pin near the center, above your nape. Secure the loose updo with any accessory of your choice.

3. Braid and twist updo

If you are having a beach wedding and want a hairstyle that will stay in place and that does not have too many fly-aways, then you can go in for this hairstyle that has a braid and a twist. Braid your hair in the front and then twist the sections of curls at the back and secure them at the center using bobby pins. Use a spray meant for wind swept hair to keep the look in place.

4. Loose Curls

If you want to stay away from the world of updos and half updos and want to flaunt your long and flowing tresses, then this could be the hairstyle for you. The front section of your hair is slightly back-combed to gain some volume and twirled on the sides and secured at the back with a pin. The rest of the hair is curled and a lovely mass of curls fall on your shoulders, framing your face.
