Hairstyles: Long Waves

The long, loose curl that is effortlessly cascading down a bride…I just adore it! It’s romantic and beautiful with just that perfect touch of natural. I am sifting through some of the pictures that I took to my wedding day hair trial. I, like so many brides, had to decide between three basic hairstyles for the big day: up, down or half-up. Which version for the wedding? Would there be time for two? I was instantly drawn to having my hair down. This is what I usually wear most days, so it feels like me. Very feminine, a little casual, and made perfect with a white dress (and perhaps a flower, too)! Here are a few inspiration pictures for long, Bohemian waves.

    I originally thought I would have my hair up for the wedding… but the more I look at pictures like this, the more I want to wear mine down too.

    I would have loved to wear my hair down with loose curls, but I ended up wearing my hair up. Reason: My hair is straight… that’s all. Won’t hold a curl! Plus, we had an outside wedding in Florida – humidity would have been then end to ANY curl!!

    This is exactly what I envision my hair on my wedding day but my sweetie has really let me know the likes my hair up so I’ll be going with an updo. I do love these flowy curls though.

    I love Taylor Swift’esc waves, but I have finally accepted the fact that my hair will never never ever do anything remotely close to that. My hair is long, thin, fine, and straight… not exactly the wavy hair recipe. I’m going to do an updo for my wedding supplimented with a hair piece for some extra needed hair! lol

    […] have given zero thought to my wedding day hairstyle, but given that it’s long, I do like these long waves ideas (or perhaps a half-up, half-down style).  Oh, and a headband would […]
