Are you a bride-to-be or maybe a brides-maid-to-be? A bun is a great option for your wedding day hairstyle because it keeps your hair pulled back for endless hours of dancing, photos and celebration. A bun doesn’t have to be simple or ordinary either. It can be as intricate as you dream of and a truly gorgeous hairstyle. Here are some of our favorite bridal buns for a wedding.
Brides, Buns and Braids
You can’t go wrong with braids on your wedding day. Pairing your bun with a braid is a great way to turn a simple hairstyle into something unique. A big French side-braid that starts at the front and works it way back until it meets the bun is a trés chic option. We also love the French braid that goes up the back of your hair and finishes when it meets a higher topknot style bun.
Bridal Bun with a Twist
Twist up your bun to create a simply elegant and gorgeous hairstyle. You’ll have to sweep one side of your hair around the other and then create a low bun that is secured around the nape of your neck. Leave some lose locks out to frame your face for a romantic touch.
Topknot with Big Floral Hair Accessory
Most weddings have a floral theme. Regardless of its roses, sunflowers, daisies or something else, using the flowers in your hair is a great way to tie everything together. You could easily make (or purchase) a big floral hair accessory to wrap around the base of your topknot.
Tousled Bouffant Bridal Bun
Voluminous hairstyles are perfect for wedding days. They just have a way of saying that this day is more special than other hair days. A bouffant at the crown of your hair finished with a low bun or a bun that is halfway up your head is an undeniably flattering hairstyle. Best of all, this look is best left a little undone. This can work for short or long hair and with every face shape!
Sleek Knotted Bun
Let’s be honest, it’s not easy to get sleek, shiny and straight hair. But if there is one day that you can make it happen, it’s your wedding day. If you want something sleek, simple and sophisticated then this is the bun for you. A low-knotted bun is undeniably elegant and with its touch of timeless romance, it’s the perfect bridal bun.
Big Beautiful Bun
It’s your wedding day – go big or go home! A big beautiful bun will certainly turn heads (as if you needed any help!) A big bun on the top of your head with lots of height is the perfect simple updo for any bride. It doesn’t have to be perfectly styled either. It looks good with a little tousled texture or perfectly hair sprayed.
