While the above photo gallery showcases plenty of examples (we add more every week), below we set out a list of the popular wedding hairstyles along with photo examples.
12 Most Popular Wedding Hairstyles
Here’s a list of the most popular options.
How did we put together the list? In other words, how do we know what’s popular? As a website publisher, we pay for extensive research tools to find out what people share the most on social media and what search words get searched the most. It’s from these tools that we put together this list… it’s just pure data which is really interesting.
The following is in order of popularity; the first listed is the most widely searched.
1. Half-Up, Half-Down
2. Short Wedding Hairstyle
One advantage of a longer engagement is you have time to grow your hair out. However, it’s not always feasible, nor desirable to do so. If you have short hair, there are plenty of styles you can go with. Here’s an example of a bob cut.
The great thing about styling your hair with flowers is it can be done with any length. It’s a perfect hair accessory for events and looks amazing. Obviously putting flowers in your hair is totally impractical for everyday wear, it’s a nice touch for special events. The above is an example of
4. Bridal Updo (Upstyle)
If you like going fully elegant, the upstyle is a great option. It’s a classic look; one I love. There are many styling options, but it’s definitely a style to consider.
Here’s a great bridal updo video tutorial:
5. Down Style
A simpler style is letting it all hang down. Yes, it needs styling, but it’s not quite as delicate as a half-up half-down or full up style. The photo example above is a gorgeous example of a down wedding hairstyle.
6. With a Veil
Go fully traditional with a veil incorporated into your hairstyle. It’s a nice way to tie in the hair style with your wedding dress.
The wedding bun comes in many forms, but it’s a simple form of an upstyle. By simple, I mean it’s a simple look; it’s not necessarily simple to do. Above is an example of a plain, but elegant bun style along with a step-by-step tutorial.
8. To the Side (Sweep)
Most of the styles so far deal with the back. This one addresses a style pertaining to the front and that is a side part or side sweep. The popular search term is “wedding hairstyles to the side”, which could include a variety of side-styles. The example above is more of side sweep, but you can do a more prominent side part (see below).
9. Side Part
Here’s a more prominent “to the side” style. The part is prominent and the hair is styled high and to the side.
Before doing our research and collecting data on the most popular wedding hairstyles, I thought braids would be close to the top, but it’s not. That said, many people who search for half-up, half-down and updos imply some braiding in those styles. Nevertheless, braided styles are not directly searched for all that much.
The wavy style falls under the “down-style” but down-style doesn’t always mean it’s wavy. Undoubtedly it’s a nice natural look that many women opt for.
Curls can be incorporated in up-styles, half-up, half-down or down-styles. The above is an example of amazing curls for an up-style.
That’s it. Those are the most popular styles. It pretty much covers most of the options. However, within many of the above-listed options there are many sub-styles. For example, there are many different types of braids.
