Where to start with wedding hairstyles? Getting the right up do or half up do makes a great impact, the right shape and height of the style can be hard to visualise and if you have be adding pin upon pin to your boards, screenshot catching like crazy and gathering ideas for you and your bridesmaids you might not know which style to ask for first when you meet your hairstylist. Sometime we fall a little bit in love the images we gather because the girl in photo looks so perfect – but how will that hairstyle look on you?
The very best way is start trying out some wedding hairstyles yourself, don’t worry if you have never created more than a messy bun or a ponytail before I have gathered together some fantastic demonstrations and tutorials from inspirational blogs and and talented wedding hairstyle creators.
These styles and tutorials are wonderful in two ways; you may find just the ‘do’ here and have everything you need to show your hair stylist to get your wedding hair trial started or you can get to grips with the tutorials and start actually trying out the hairstyles you like. The styles I have selected below are great to start off your self-styling because most of them do not require any special hair tools.
Get your girls involved? There is nothing to stop you turning your bridal hair experimentation from a ‘DIY’ to a ‘with a little help from my friends’, now that sounds to me like brilliant excuse for a get together……. and possibly drinking Prosecco??

See more of Lilith’s hair styling on her site or via her YouTube tutorials. Large flowers such as Eta Rose Crescent Headdress, can work really well in the back of an off set braid like this.
This tutorial covers several ideas – I really like the soft but neat tucked up as a bridal hair style, The pony tail would make an excellent bridesmaid hair style add a Gypsophilia Pin to accessorise it.
