With beautiful, long tresses, you’re left with lots of versatile hairstyle options for your wedding day. When picking out the way your hair will look for your nuptials, it’s important to keep a few factors in mind, including your dress, your wedding theme, your hair’s texture, your personality and your face shape. All of these elements can help you choose a style that really speaks to you and your individuality. Whether you’re having a 1920s-inspired wedding or a romantic winter soiree, I’ve got a few wedding hairstyles for long hair that you’re sure to fall in love with:


Vintage waves
Let your long locks flow, showing off plenty of finger waves and softly brushed-out pin curls for a glamorous, vintage look. A boar bristle brush is the best tool to use, as it brings volume and bounce to your hair. Add a barrette covered with diamonds or crystals to the side of your hair or opt for an embellished headband to bring a touch of sparkle to your bridal ensemble.

Waterfall braid
This type of braid is perfect for brides who want a fairytale princess wedding. The braid comes with a romantic, whimsical feel, and its simplicity is what makes it so beautiful. A waterfall braid travels horizontally across the back of your hair, as the rest of your locks fall down in big, loose curls (check out this bride who rocked the style).

Half up, half down
Can’t decide whether to have your tresses up or down? Well, how about compromising with a mix of both? This relaxed hairstyle is perfect for women with medium to fine hair. Bring half of the hair back and secure with a sparkling brooch or a large, delicate flower. You can also hold your locks in place with a veil to finish off your bridal look.

Braided updo
Bring rustic charm to your formal updo with some thick braids. You can leave your braided updo as is, or add a crown of flowers to the top of your head for some boho flair.

There are so many ways that you can style a classic chignon. A chignon is otherwise known as a bun that sits low toward the nape of your neck. A rustic bride with a love for nature can add flowers to the bottom of her chignon ‘do, which will provide a beautiful pop of color and texture. If you’re more of the glamorous type, skip the flowers and wrap a glittering headband around your tresses to really make a stunning statement. You can also stick with a simple chignon hairstyle by letting wispy pieces of hair frame your face and opting for that just-rolled-out-of-bed look.

Side braid
Let your beautiful tresses fall across one shoulder with a classic side braid. Emulate the look of Rapunzel’s hair by intertwining small flowers throughout the braid, or channel your inner Elsa with a fishtail braid sweeping off to the side.
