Easy wedding hairstyles you can do yourself!

Depending on the bride, hair and makeup can be even more important than finding the perfect dress. To make sure they look their best on their special day, most brides book experienced and oftentimes, very expensive hair and makeup artists.  I was lucky enough to have my cousin Kendy, a truly talented hair stylist, do my hair for my wedding day. Because we were on a strict budget for the wedding, had my cousin not been available, I most likely would have ended up doing my hair myself.  To help other brides on a budget who are not fortunate enough to be related to a professional hair stylist, I have compiled a list of gorgeous and easy wedding hairstyles, along with easy step-by-step tutorials that make doing your own bridal “do” a piece of cake!

Most of these hairstyles can be worn anytime, not just at a wedding or special event. The trick to transforming a regular hairstyle into “wedding hair” is the accessories. Be it a rhinestone headband, birdcage veil, or a floral halo, accessories are the key to making a pretty hairstyle special event worthy. Below are a few of my favorite bridal hair looks, followed by a couple of super easy hairstyle tutorials from hair guru and beauty blogger, Kate Bryan.

I love the casual elegance of this low messy bun with a loose crown braid. Like I mentioned above, this could easily be an everyday hairstyle, but add some bling or a sprinkling of baby’s breath, et voila, gorgeous bridal hair.

Half up hairstyles are a great option for girls who aren’t used to wearing their hair up, but still want a style that is fancier than their everyday hair down style.

This last look is perfect for the Bohemian bride. It’s romantic and free-spirited style would fit in perfectly with an outdoor or garden-themed wedding. Flowers and/or ribbons are a must for making this casual style appropriate for a special event.

Tutorials for easy wedding hairstyles

I’ve showcased Kate’s hairstyle tutorials on this blog before, but only because they are seriously so easy to follow, and this is from a girl who is all thumbs when it comes to hair.

Kate has tutorials for almost every kind of hairstyle you’d need for a pretty wedding do. The bow style below is one of my favorites, and would be perfect with a dress that had a low cut back.

So if you don’t have the money to hire a professional stylist for your hair on your wedding day DON’T FRET! Simply pick an easy style from the options above (or another pretty style from Pinterest) and hit up Kate’s Youtube channel for a detailed video tutorial that virtually walks you through recreating the wedding hairstyle of your dreams.
