Wedding Day Hair: Hairstyle Ideas for Bridesmaids & Guests

Wedding bells are in the air and if you're not walking down the aisle, you're likely attending as a guest. Let the craze of what to wear and how to style your hair begin!

Summer is upon us and wedding season will be in full swing very soon.  We all have a few special events we must attend, and whether you are getting ready in a hotel room or at home, Jenny Balding, Cutler/Redken Stylist, has hooked us up with some easy, DIY hairstyles that we can all recreate for the big event!

Check out these two fabulous go-to options:

Sleek Center Braid

This is perfect for summer wedding as it keeps your hair off your face but still allows you to wear your hair down and works with any neckline!

  • Blow dry very straight by using a smoothing, straightening lotion
  • Section a mohawk section of 2" width coming into a point at the nape
  • Use a dry shampoo on this section to create texture and grip to the hair
  • Reverse braid from the hairline right down to the nape and secure with small band
  • If necessary, finish by using straightening irons to the loose hair to create a sleek, polished feel.

Disheveled Halo Braid

This is the perfect way to have style your hair if you're attending a wedding in the heat of summer.  You never have to worry about it all day and night!  This would look best on an open neckline e.g strapless or thin like straps.

  • Create a middle part and split the hair into two sections
  • Braid each section starting just behind the chair
  • Bring one braid over the top and secure with hair pin behind ear
  • Use the hairpin like an anchor and twist it back on itself. This is the perfect to disguise and secure your halo braid.
  • Then secure through the top sections if necessary with a couple of hair pins
  • Repeat on other side
