Need some new inspiration for your summer wedding? Whether you're the bride, a bridesmaid or a guest, check out these three hair ideas for summer weddings.
1. AnnaSophia Robb's Braided Updo
The braided updo is a go-to for any special occasion. If you have a dress with a killer neckline - especially one that comes up higher on your chest - then this is definitely a hairstyle you’ll want to consider. This ‘do will also call attention to any jewelry you might be wearing as a statement piece.
To get AnnaSophia's look, start by working a styling gel through your strands for extra hold. Then create a deep side part and secure half the hair out of the way. French braid starting from the part alongside your face until you reach your ear. Then braid back toward the back of your head, curling around the nap of your neck. Braid this side of hair down to the end, then tie off with an elastic. Repeat with the rest of your hair on the other side of your head, then pin the ends of the braids up together with bobby pins.
For an easier version, try this four-braid updo.
2. Kim Kardashian's Half-Up Beehive
You might want to ask your hairstylist to help you with this style since it takes a little more technical skill than your average updo. For an easy DIY version, opt to wear just the top half of your hair in a beehive with the rest of it down.
To get a half-up beehive, tease the hair at the crown of your head and pin it so that there's volume at the top of your head. Use plenty of hairspray to keep your 'hive in place. Then, curl or flat iron the section of your hair that's left down for an overall polished appearance. Spray all over again with a strong-hold spray to keep your look going all night.
3. Hayden Panettiere's Slicked Back 'Do
Slicked back hair is SO on-trend right now, and it's perfect for any length of hair. To get the look, apply a generous amount of a styling gel to your hair. Then grab a comb, and literally slick back all of your hair. Pair this minimalistic hairstyle with some dramatic makeup, and your night will be one to remember!
This wedding season, get creative with your locks. And remember: Confidence is one of the best accessories you can have, so rock the socks out of any style you choose!
