Wedding styling: ideas for caret, long and medium hair (50+ photos)
Brides often refuse collected hairstyles, giving preference to loose hair. This solution allows you to create a gentle and cute image. And many more are used to seeing themselves with a certain hairstyle, so they cannot imagine their own reflection in a different light.
Wedding styling differs significantly from hairstyles. In the first case, styling devices and tools are used to create volume, curls. The hair is given a certain direction and shape, but it remains in free fall.
A hairstyle differs from styling in that the prepared curls or strands are assembled into a certain shape with the help of accessories: hairpins, invisible hairpins, hairpins, combs. It is also believed that the hairstyle takes more time, so if it is sorely lacking, you can get by with styling. Although there are very simple hairstyles that take no more than 5-10 minutes.

Features of wedding styling for different hair lengths
There are different types of hair styling. Today, both voluminous and smooth options are in trend. It is also fashionable to create large curls, Hollywood and beach waves. All these are varieties of styling for long and medium hair. But let’s start with the short ones.
The most popular wedding styling for a caret is curls. They are curled with tongs or curling irons. The diameter of the tool is selected depending on the length and density of the hair. For a shortened crown and bangs, it is better to choose a device up to 25 mm. For an elongated bob or haircut of the same length 25-30 mm.
The winding of the hair is carried out in stages: from the lower occipital zone to the top of the head. The bangs area is usually curled away from the face so that the strands do not interfere with the view and do not get into the eyes. A small volume is created with a special comb and powder that fixes the created effect (for example, OSIS Powder Cloud).
Wedding styling for medium hair is different. For this length, bangs combed back, side parting, voluminous crown are suitable. From the length, beautiful curls are usually created.
Today, there are several curl options in the trend: large, medium, as if from pigtails, Afro-curls. All these are varieties of styling that are combined with wedding decorations in the form of a crown, headband or wreath, and with a veil.
Brides who opt for wedding styling instead of hairstyles often prefer large accessories. It can be a large hairpin with stones or pearls. A wreath of natural flowers, an oriental-style decoration that covers the forehead.
Long hair gives the masters the opportunity to roam. The longer the strands, the more spectacular and unusual the hairstyle will be. Popular types of wedding styling for long hair:
- hollywood Waves,
- beach waves,
- classic curls,
- voluminous styling on brushing,
- with bangs effect, etc.
It is recommended to wind long hair, as ideally smooth at the wedding will look boring, even if you complement the image with a crown and veil.
✅ Wedding styling for long hair, as a rule, combines a bouffant in the crown area and wrapping the bangs from the face. This allows the bride to look spectacular in photographs. And it also visually makes the face thinner.
❌ It is not recommended to use glitter hairspray, a product that sticks hair and leaves a glossy shine.
Hairstyle for a bride with bangs
There are different types of bangs. The most common are straight, asymmetrical, sideways. Until recently, baby bangs were popular. And now many choose rare, arched and angled.
Any bangs should look harmonious with a hairstyle or styling, so it is necessary to create the same effect in this area as along the entire length. The decision to leave straight bangs with large curls on long hair is erroneous, since the image of the bride will not look harmonious.
Bangs and hair should be styled the same. It is recommended to “thin out” this area with thinning scissors to make the image lighter and more airy.
Wedding styling under the crown
The bride, who has chosen the crown as the main decoration for her hair, in most cases makes a choice in favor of a high hairstyle or simple styling.
- Loose curls are combined with a crown in any style. The veil can be attached in two ways: to an accessory, or in the occipital area, on a pre-designated frame made of stealth, fleece, pigtails, etc.
- Wedding styling under the crown should be voluminous. Beach curls with this accessory are not combined. They are suitable for hippie-style jewelry: metal headbands, hairpins, invisible.
- Elegant and luxurious styling under the crown – Hollywood waves. This is a complex hairstyle, it takes a lot of time and effort from the master, but brides with it look like real queens of the evening.
On a note: Wedding styling differs from everyday in volume and accuracy. Each curl must be highlighted, the roots pre-dyed, and the veil is securely fastened to the back of the head or crown.
