Besides finding your wedding dress, searching through wedding hairstyles can be one of the most exciting parts of planning your wedding day look. But if you find yourself stuck in the middle—i.e., at a hair length that can neither be described as short nor long—that's easier said than done.
No need to grow out locks (or snip them off for that matter). A marvelous mid-length cut will set you apart from the rest. And medium-length looks can truly make a big statement. From halo-accessorized coiffures to bohemian waves, there are some totally doable hairstyles that are unique and gorgeous.
No matter your hair texture or overall vibe, these medium-length wedding hairstyles are bound to suit you.
Embrace Your Natural Texture
This bride's voluminous natural curls are the only accessory she needs.
Raked-back curls add texture and volume to an otherwise classic chignon. This gorgeous bride's romantic style befits her magical French château nuptials.
Since every piece of hair might not be long enough for a polished chignon, a messy updo is a perfect choice for brides with medium-length locks.
A Plaited Crown
A crowning braid is just the finishing touch a boho princess needs.
Give straight strands a little extra oomph by coyly curling the ends inward for a sexy spin, like Stone Cold Fox designer Cydney Morris did for her wedding. The key is to inject a little volume throughout the entire hair shaft so the style doesn't look too sleek.
Who said you can't have mid-length hair and sport a ponytail? This low pony of wavy strands—wrapped in a bow, no less—is proof that you can have it all.
Curl only the bottom portions of your strands and give them a good tousle for an effortless feel. You can even leave the last inch or so of the ends straight for a cool-girl aesthetic like The Style Bungalow's Stephanie Hill did for this beachy locale.
This bride's slicked-back chignon radiates a timeless elegance that befits her classic wedding with informal touches.
Bringing the hair upward and then down, rather than adding a part, pulls the eyes up highlighting the face and elongating the neck.
A Sleek Finish
A sleek bun looks oh-so sweet with tender, face-framing wisps. This lovely lady looks every bit the enchanted bride for her old world–themed nuptials.
A French twist is timeless sophistication that works with any hair length and texture, even if you're working with some fringe like this beautiful bride, and imparts a touch of vintage feels to the overall look.
A Bohemian Bride
This bride added a hint of whimsy to her 'do by nestling a few dusty-hued blooms into her tousled waves. She looked every bit the autumnal fairy bride at her boho-chic vineyard wedding in Napa.
A Lustrous Lob
Bride Megan made a major move by chopping off her lengthy locks into this chic lob between wedding events. The style was kept fresh and modern with a side part and ends curling inward.
