Up or down? The ultimate question on wedding days for brides, the wedding party and attendees. So why not compromise? Half-up hairstyles are perfect for wedding days. They’re versatile, they can hold-up all day, show off personal style and also let your hair down for a soft feminine look. If you’re looking for some inspiration for those half-up hairstyles, check out these simple but beautiful looks.
Half-Up Bun Hairstyle
Depending on the wedding location and style, you can really play with this look. A center part with a high half-up bun and textured style is perfect for beach weddings or mid-summer weddings. If you have a more formal wedding to attend, then skip the texture and sweep your hair back in a sleek and polished half-up do.
High Bun with Braid
Braids are always a good choice when selecting a wedding day hairstyle – rather as the bride or an attendee. If you’re looking for a way to wear your hair half-up and rock some braids, we love this center braided half-up hairstyle with a high bun. It’s a modern twist on classic hairstyles. If you don’t like the center braid then opt for some mini braids throughout the length of your hair.
Twisted Crown Half-Up Hairstyle
It doesn’t get much simpler than a twisted crown hairstyle for any occasion and any season. Once you’ve had loose waves or big formal waves (depending on the wedding) you’ve got a simple hairstyle that is absolutely timeless.
A simple way to make a big statement with your wedding day hair is with a natural knot. After you’ve created the texture you’re seeking for the big day, you can simple pull some strands back and twist them in a natural knot that will last all day. This is a hairstyle that has plenty of room for creativity so just let your stylist knot it up!
Add Ribbons to Your Wedding Day Hair
A simple way to take your favorite half-up hairstyle and make it wedding-day appropriate is to simply add the right hair accessory. We love ribbons with textured half-up hairstyles because it’s simple, feminine and stylish. This look is also completely versatile. You can play with the color and texture of the ribbon and then style your hair-up hairstyle with it in many ways. They are the perfect compliment to a half-up ponytail, a waterfall braid and a curly swept-up look.
