How you decide to style your hair for your wedding can be influenced by a number of factors. First, there’s your dress (or suit!) and accessories to consider. Are you wearing a veil? Is your look more romantic or are you going for glam? But the most important thing to think about is your actual hair type! The length, texture, and color will all come into play. And if you’re looking for wedding hairstyles for long hair, you’ve come to the right place.
We collected ideas and inspiration for long hair of all types (and short hair, too!). Be sure to talk with your stylist to find out what your hair is truly capable of. Let’s get into the looks!
