There is no shortage of elegant bridal hairstyles to enhance your bridal look for your wedding day. The options a bride has will depend on her hair length and hair texture, not to mention the wedding dress. These days however the hurdle of creating long length extravagant hairstyles and many long length bridal hairstyles, can be overcome even if one has short hair, by the use of hair extensions.
Versatile Ponytails and Plaits
Ponytail and plaits are versatile and will keep you comfortable and looking elegant throughout the wedding day. Brides can choose to go with a sleek and smooth option for a simple yet sophisticated look , or a messy and textured look for a bohemian and softer look. The simple ponytail or plait can start looking quite sophisticated with the use of flowers, ribbons, or hair jewellery.
Updos are also a favourite for many brides. Updos have a certain simplicity about them, and keep your hair firmly away from from your face and neck. Depending on the wedding dress this may be a better choice for some brides as your neck and back will be unobstructed. Updos can come in a variety of styles, from simple to sophisticated bridal buns to different types of braided updos. Updos can be large and voluminous, or smaller in size, and can also come with curls added. Hair jewellery and flowers can also be used in keeping up with some traditions and adding a splash of glamour to the hairstyle. Down dos or low wedding buns are a variation of the updo and may be the preference of some brides.
Various types of curls can be incorporated within other hairstyles to achieve that elegant bridal hairstyle. Curls can be free flowing or pulled back, or pinned high to give various sophisticated hairstyles such as half up half down, curly updos, curly down dos and more.
Elegant Russian Hairstyles
Some of my favourites are from among Russian hairstyles. These glamorous hairstyles are elegance and beauty combined. There are many different types of Russian hairstyles which would suit many different tastes. The hairstyles range from updos, down dos, buns, and many braided, messy and textured hairstyles. I particularly favour the hairstyles that make the brides hair look like flowers, or a single rose flower.
Where to Learn Elegant Bridal Hairstyles
The skill needed in creating Russian hairstyles is unfortunately not taught at most hairstyling schools in UK. I have been teaching all types of hairstyles including Russian hairstyles for many years. As Russian Hairstyles can take a long time to learn due to a new skill set and new hair product knowledge, I have designed a one day Russian hairstyling course that paves the way to creating absolutely breathtaking hairstyles. These hairstyles are elegant, sophisticated, and beautiful. The Russian hair course is certified, insurable, and accredited by The Guild, the UK’s professional trade body for Beauty Therapists.
