Winter is a magical time of year, but when you add a wedding to the mix, it’s truly like something out of a whimsical dream. From the snow flurries to the flowing white lace, winter weddings offer their own special kind of ethereal vibe that’s simply unmatched. And with such a special occasion on the books, you definitely want your hair to match. We know that wedding hairstyles tend to be pretty standard across the board—and across seasons—but they don’t have to be! Instead, you can doll things up for a special wintry vibe with a series of braids, buns, crowns, and everything in between. To help you look your very best on your big day, we’ve outlined a few hairstyles to offer you major wintry wedding hair inspo ahead!
Looking for something a little undone with a bit of a romantic vintage vibe? Then this could be the wedding hairstyle for you! Featuring soft curls that are brushed, teased, and pinned to one side, with face-framing tendrils to complete the look, this hairstyle is the ultimate feminine, yet laidback wedding look. All you’ll need is a curling iron, rat tail comb, bobby pins, and a can of hair spray.
Get the look by following these simple steps:
Step 1: Make a side-swept low pony. Gather and tie your hair into a low ponytail that is neatly situated to one side of your neck.
Step 2: Add curls. In two-inch sections, quickly curl your ponytail for a just-lived-in-enough vibe.
Step 3: Tease your pony. Using a rat tail comb, gently brush from the ends of your hair up towards the base of your ponytail to add extra volume and texture to your hair.
Step 4: Create your bun. Divide your hair into sections and pin up one at a time, building onto your bun with each newly pinned section.
Step 5: Make it undone. Softly tug at a few face-framing strands, as well as one or two by your ears for a perfectly undone but totally gorgeous wedding hairstyle.
Step 6: Seal it in place. Even though your hairstyle looks undone, you definitely don’t want it to fall midway through your first dance, so be sure to grab a can of flexible hold hairspray, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray, to help keep everything in its place without making it look too rigid.
Intricate yet laidback, this is the perfect wedding hairstyle for brides who want to look effortlessly chic when they walk down the aisle. Whether you opt for a traditional, rope, or fishtail braid, this hairstyle lets your hair hang in all its lengthy glory while looking seriously stunning.
Step 1: Add texture spray. When it comes to braids, texture spray is your hair’s best friend. With just a few spritzes, your hair will be boosted with enough grit to help even the loosest braid stay put. Try the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray when your hair is damp, then let your hair air dry.
Step 2: Tease your hair. Using a rat tail comb, gently tease hair from your ends towards your roots to help pump up the volume of your final hairstyle.
Step 3: Create a French braid. Separate your hair into three sections to begin weaving a French braid from one side of your head down and around towards the other shoulder. Secure the ends of your braid with a clear elastic.
Step 4: Make it thicker. Stating at the bottom of your braid where it’s tightest, lightly tug at sections to make it appear like you have a head full of super-voluminous hair that are all woven into one massive, gorgeous braid.
Step 5: Frame your face. To make this wedding hairstyle especially playful, pull out a few strands around your face for an ultra-romantic vibe. Spray a little of the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold to help keep your hairstyle in place.
As the hybrid between a messy and ballerina wedding hairstyle, the high bun is a softly coiled, super-smooth, big bun that sits high atop your head for a quite regal look. Not only does this hairstyle look gorg, it’s also functional, as it keeps all of your hair out of your face so that you won’t miss a single moment of the celebration. To bring this look to life, look for a shine spray or hair serum, like the L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Frizz Finish Oil-In-Serum, a hair tie, and loads of bobby pins.
Step 1: Smooth it out. First things first: Before you begin styling this gorgeous wedding hairstyle, you’ll want to make sure that every last strand is seamlessly smooth. Use a hair cream, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Undone Style Cream, on clean, damp hair, evenly distributing it from root to tip with your fingers.
Step 2: Separate your hair. Split your hair into two sections in order to create your signature high bun. Make the top section of hair slightly thicker than the other.
Step 3: Create a high pony. Using the top larger section of hair, create a high ponytail. Be sure to smooth out all of your hair with a boar bristle brush before securing it with a hair tie.
Step 4: Swoop the remaining hair. Wrap the remaining lower section of hair across the back of your head and up to the base of your high ponytail to create the signature swoop that is so associated with this hairstyle. Secure all of your hair with another hair tie.
Step 5: Divide and curl. Split your hair into four sections and curl each one from the base to the ends to help give hair the necessary extra volume that will help your high bun look plump.
Step 6: Tease it. Gently tease your curled pony from the ends towards the base for even more volume.
Step 7: Create your high bun. Roll three of the four sections under themselves towards the base of your ponytail to create the initial bun shape. Wrap the remaining section around your three mini buns to create a seamless final wedding hairstyle. Once you’re happy with the appearance, pin everything in place and your wedding hairstyle is ready for its finishing touches.
Step 8: Add shine for a smooth finish. This look is all about being sleek and shiny, so be sure to use a hair serum to really bring your bun to life.
It’s your wedding day, which means you’re the queen of the show. To show off your gorgeous hair while looking especially royal, an intricate crown braid is the perfect hairstyle to rock down the aisle. With the help of a few bobby pins, hairspray, and patience, this will become one of your favorite looks in your hair repertoire.
Step 1: Create a side part. Drastically part your hair to one side in order to have enough hair for your crown.
Step 2: Weave a Dutch fishtail braid. When a braid is Dutch, it means that it’s inverted. That said, when weaving this braided wedding hairstyle, starting at the front of your head in the larger section of parted hair, and cross sections under instead of over for a thicker, more noticeable crown.
Step 3: Continue the braid. Instead of stopping the braid when you reach the base of the neck, continue to Dutch braid around to the other side of your head.
Step 4: Finish your braid. Once you’ve braided around the entire circumference of your head, use the remaining hair to create a traditional fishtail braid.
Step 5: Perk up your braid. To make your braid look thicker, tug at each section starting at the ends and working your way to where you started.
Step 6: Secure your free braid. Tuck the loose braid behind your crown braid and pin in place.
Step 7: Spray it! After that much work, you better believe you’ll want to dance the night away without losing your crown, so be sure to generously spritz your hairstyle with hairspray for all-night hold.
This uber-classic wedding hairstyle knows how to really tie a look together. Just because it’s a classic doesn’t mean you can’t spruce it up for the modern day, though! With a series of purposeful flyaways and detailed braids, this look has the potential to be everything you were ever dreaming of for your wedding.
Step 1: Make a center part. This wedding hairstyle looks especially stunning when created with a center part. Use a fish tail comb to create a super precise line down the middle of your head.
Step 2: Twist your hair. On each side of your head, twist hair in an upward direction, continuously grabbing more strands from underneath until you reach the back of your head.
Step 3: Create a low ponytail. Combine both twisted sections in a low ponytail.
Step 4: Tease the remaining hair. With the hair that’s not in your twist, gently tease from ends to roots for added volume.
Step 5: Create a braid or two. Weave a couple teeny tiny braids to add your own unique twist on this classic.
Step 6: Create a hair hammock. Create a little hole in the middle of your twisted ponytail to make a small pouch to tuck all your remaining hair into.
Step 7: Tuck your hair. Bunch your hair up and maneuver it into the little hair hammock you just created. Gently pull up the edges of the hammock and secure with bobby pins for a flawlessly chic end look.
Step 8: Make your braids stand center stage. Before walking down the aisle or heading to your wedding photoshoot, make sure that your miniature braids are on the outermost part of your Gibson Tuck—they’ll add a touch of texture to your otherwise smooth wedding hairstyle.
