Summer weddings are upon us! If you’re getting married this summer you’re likely starting to think about how you want to wear your hair on your wedding day. Thinking of wearing it down with big waves or pulling it back in a beautiful chignon? Are you adding a veil or wearing a headpiece? Whatever you’re considering doing, we think you should consider a couple of things…what makes you feel most beautiful and like yourself? Your wedding day hairstyle should look and feel like you but elevated!

If you’re getting married in the summer there is also a pretty good chance it’s going to be warm that day! Think about what will be comfortable for you and still make you feel absolutely gorgeous. For some, wearing your hair down is out of the question but for others, it’s an absolute must, even if it’s hot that day!

We’ve rounded up 9 beautiful hairstyles for all types of hair and all styles of weddings that are perfect for a summer wedding.

1. Contemporary Classic Updo 

This stunning, low updo has us all in on a summer black-tie wedding. We love the nod to the 192o’s with the big waves but contemporary at the same time with the sleek, low chignon. This is the perfect hairstyle to add a gorgeous headpiece and veil for an even more glam look!

2. Beach Waves and Messy Braids

If beach waves don’t scream summer, we don’t know what does! This gorgeous long do has us swooning. We love that the hair is pulled back in a messy, full braid and her gorgeous beach waves frame her face and work perfectly with her dress! It also looks fabulous with a felt hat! This hairstyle lends itself to a boho-style wedding, a western-style wedding, or even a beach wedding!

3. Natural Curls Up-Do 

We cannot get over this beautiful bride’s gorgeous natural curls pulled up into this beautiful up-do. The center part lends itself perfectly to her hair jewelry and fits her face shape like a dream. If you’ve got natural curls showcase them just like this bride did!

4. Low Twist Updo 

We love this soft, low twist updo for a summer wedding. The low twist sits across the base of the head creating a soft romantic look. This style is perfect to add a veil over the top of the twist and would look gorgeous with a headband. Long hair or short, this style is a perfect choice!

5. Relaxed Curls

There is something so beautiful about wearing your hair down and having the perfect relaxed curls on your wedding day. It looks effortless, yet elevated and the center part makes it fresh and frames her face shape beautifully.

6. Low Long Braid 

This romantic low braid is absolutely beautiful and perfect for a summer wedding. We can see this hairstyle in a gorgeous garden wedding with a long veil or even a boho style wedding with a hat. The braid is a wonderful way to keep that long hair look but stay cooler with it all pulled together.

7. Long Voluminous Curls 

Do you have long locks and want to show them off on your wedding day? We think that big volume curls and a middle part is a fresh way to wear your hair down on your big day! This bride’s hair pairs perfectly with the low back of her dress showcasing both! Add some beaded clips near your temples for a glam look!

8. High Messy Chignon

Are you someone who wears a messy bun all the time? Take that idea and completely elevate it with this high messy chignon. We love that there is volume in the front as well as in the chignon. The loose tendrils of hair in both the front and back make it soft and romantic. You can easily add a headband, hairpins, and a veil!

9. Sleek Low Bun 

The sleek low bun is one of our favorite hair trends in wedding hairstyles right now. It’s simple and gorgeous and pulls the focus to the bride’s face, neck and shoulders. The center part keeps it modern and the low bun keeps it classic. We’re in love.
