Long, Smooth Waves

Wedding Hairstyle for Brides with Long Hair

There's a reason so many brides grow out their hair: In the right hands, extra length can equal major drama. If you're wearing it down, we love an easy, tousled texture during the day and sexy, side-swept Veronica Lake waves at night. Have a low-back gown? Don't default to a simple bun. Instead, go with a low ponytail or a loose French braid—a great way to add a soft note to a sophisticated gown. If you have short bangs like Taylor Swift, try emulating her gently curled strands. Or, dress up a bun by braiding hair with ribbon before pinning. Romantic!
