This article is for those planning to cut some costs, times, feeling like having something DIY, or just simply don’t want to try too hard on their Big Day. Having said that, being a minimalist is not as easy as it sounds. You may have to spend hours, even days to find a hairstyle that would allow you to stay low-key yet still look stunning as ever. So, girls, if you happen to fancy doing your own bridal look, here are some of our favorite wedding hairstyles that are incredibly easy to master.
1. Twisted Updo
Whether it is your Big Day, or it is a fancy lunch with your boss, a chic yet simple twisted updo is a need. And sophisticated as it may seem, this hairstyle takes you three minutes only. All you have to do is to comb your hair carefully for the first step, then part it the way you want – consider center part, deep side part, or even no part. To make sure your hair is kept in place, leave your hair unwashed one to two days before styling it. Use a headband to place over your top, two inches back from your hairline from the front. Remember not to put it over your ears, or else you might have a headache later on. After that, you want to start wrapping your hair around the headband from the front towards the back till you reach the ends. For a more perfect-imperfect effect, gently loosen your twists by pulling them and finish it with a thin layer of hairspray to keep the hairstyle in shape. You may want to add some hair accessories to accentuate your bridal look.
2. Crown Braid
Going for an easy wedding look doesn’t mean it going to be lame, though. At least that is true with the fairy-like crown braid. It is romantic, it is gorgeous, and on top of that, it can save you quite an amount of time, and all you need is a brush. So you want to start off with a braided updo – you can choose either French braid, fishtail braid, or Dutch braid – that’s up to your liking. Split your hair into three sections with the most hair go to the back part in the middle, push the front part forward while tying the middle section with a clear elastic. Wrap the back section into a bun. For the two sections on the front, pull them into braids from the hairline towards the bun. Tuck the ends of the braids into the bun using bobby pins. Next, gently pull the braids to loosen it. You want to use a barber brush for some light swirls, make sure to do it in the opposite direction to your braids. Repeat the act until you have your messy texture. Finish with a layer of hairspray and some hair accessories if needed.
3. Classy Waves
A classy textured wavy hairstyle can never go wrong for formal events, the same goes for your wedding day. You start with applying styling cream or moisture spray (either of that will do), be sure to apply it evenly. Then, you want to use your blow dryer at low heat temperature, section to section to diffuse the spray. Part your hair into small strands, 1-2 inches thick, and wrap the strands around a 1-1.5 inch curling wand. Leave your hair cool for around 4-5 minutes after curling and brush it gently. To make it effortless yet stunning, add some hairspray to keep it a smooth look and add shines to your hair. And don’t forget to adorn your hair with some nice hairpieces or a floral crown.
4. Low Bun
A low bun is a super easy breezy hairstyle to make and yet, it gives off a princess-like, elegant vibe. With some elastic ties, some bobby pins, and hairspray, you can absolutely rock the low bun do. The first step is to apply a light mist of hairspray to get rid of frizz and flyaways. Pull your hair back into a low ponytail, make sure you make it tight so that the base will stay in place when styling. Divide the ponytail into two sections, twist them until you reach the ends and secure them with hair ties. After that, wrap the twists around the base, and you are done! Oh, and try some faux floras on your bun, we sure you will look as breath-taking as ever.
5. Chignon Bun
If you’d rather a classy, feminine, simple yet mature look, try a chignon. First, grab a comb and part your hair right in the middle and grab it at the nape of your neck. Twist the hair to the ends, then curl it around in a counter-clockwise circle. After that, you want to continue twisting your hair, forming a bun shape then secure it with a hairpin. Loosen your bun by gently pull the edges of the bun and secure it again with a smaller hairpin. Use a teasing brush to add volume and dimension by lifting a bit on your crown. You want to add a light mist of hairspray for the last step of your routine to keep your style to set nicely. A small note for you is that this does is easier to create with hair that is unwashed for a couple of days.
