12 Wedding Hairstyles for Curly Hair

Whether your hair is curly, wavy or somewhere in between, these stunning styles will have you looking your very best on your wedding day.

The tricky thing about curly hair is that it’s unpredictable. Weather, style and your hair’s ability to hold a curl will all be determining factors of how your wedding day hairstyle will turn out so be sure to do a trial run before your big day! With that being said, you really can’t go wrong with some old Hollywood curls (above). The retro-glam look is trending for 2015 and we can’t wait to see the fun styles our brides choose.

Getting married on the beach? With the humidity and emotions high, there is no better place to embrace your natural curls. These boho styles are perfect for your destination wedding. Add some jewels to your hairstyle like the bride above and let it flow or keep it simple and pulled back with statement earrings (below).

These curly hairstyles below are great if you want your hair pulled back off of your face. If you’re going for an effortless look, frame your face with curled tendrils and keep your curls big and loose (below, left). For a more structured feel, break out those bobby pins! In order to keep your hair exactly where you want it, there will be lots of pinning and spraying but the cascading ponytail of lush curls below shows that it will all be worth it.


Lately, we are head over heels for anything involving baby’s breath. Adding it into this chic bun and minimalist braid has our hearts aflutter. This hairstyle would go perfectly with a rustic backyard or vineyard wedding.

It’s a fact that curls and volume go hand in hand. Let your waves go free or add a simple flower crown like the beautiful bride above.


Accessories like floral clips, veils or headbands are an excellent way to tame your wild tresses. Be sure to choose accessories that are in line with the rest of your bridal look and that fit nicely into your theme. The delicate feather clip (above, left) would go perfectly for a romantic vintage wedding while the wide lace headband (above, right) reels right at home on a boho chic bride.

If accessorizing isn’t your thing, but your curls just won’t cooperate, try a couple thin headbands (above) that are close to your hair color. This will keep your frizz at bay while maintaining a chic and sophisticated style. If you choose to go completely accessory-less style your curls in a way that you know they will stay in place. The pulled back chignon below is a perfect example of a curly haired updo that needs nothing extra to be beautiful.

Cue the romance! Adding little flowers throughout your curly hairstyle that match your bouquet will give you a unique and cohesive look to your bridal style.
