Have a dress with an intricate back you want to show off? A twisted bun is just thing. Part your hair to one side and gather your tresses into a low ponytail. Next, loosely twist the length of the ponytail and fold it up into a “U” shape. Take a clear plastic hair tie to secure at the nape of your neck. Pull out some hair out around your ears to frame your face for an “undone” look.
2. Fun Faux Bob
For a fun, vintage-inspired look, try a faux bob. Spritz your hair with texturizing spray to enhance your hair’s natural texture (if you have naturally straight hair, you may want to consider curling it first). Pull hair back and make a loose braid. Allow shorter layers of a few pieces to naturally fall out. Roll the braid underneath and tuck at the nape of the neck. Secure with bobby pins.
3. Flirty High Pony
This quick, no-fuss hairstyle can be achieved in a matter of seconds. Simply secure all your hair at the top of your head and wrap a small section of the ponytail around the elastic to give the look a bit more polish. This style can be dressed up or down, depending on your dress and accessories.
4. Sleek and Straight
Proof that a simple hairstyle doesn’t mean boring. Super sleek strands add a bit of sophistication to any wedding guest look. Start with wet hair and part your strands down the center of your head. Blow-dry straight with a smoothing balm. After your hair is dry, pass a flat iron through your strands from root to tip. Finish with a hair oil for added shine.
