Easy DIY Wedding Hair Ideas

Your wedding budget is tight, so it goes without saying that you’re probably looking to cut costs wherever and however you can. Even though having your hair and makeup done professionally on the big day seems like a must, it is possible to look amazing on your big day without spending those bucks. Not every bridal ‘do is elaborate and impossible to DIY. Here are a few elegant yet easy DIY wedding hair ideas for both brides and bridesmaids!

THE SIDE BRAID

This chic and low maintenance style will give you that extra fancy boho look that the bride can rock. And, it’ll only take you a few minutes! If you want to tryout a more complicated braid, try a fishtail or a four or five-strand braid! 

LONG, LOOSE CURLS

You know the drill: get out your best curling iron, some hairspray, and go to town! Long, luscious curls will never go out of style, so why not rock this timeless look on the big day?

HALF UP HAIR

You’ve been able to do this look since the 9th grade, right? Even though it’s a pretty elementary hairstyle, it’s oh-so-pretty and is a wonderful way to get the dramatic effect of long hair while keeping your locks out of your face. If you’re a half-up hair expert, try spicing things up with a few braided strands or an unexpected accessory!
