After all, it’s not always feasible to employ a hairstylist whether it’s a time or financial constraint. Luckily, we’ve discovered the prettiest DIY wedding guest hairstyles you can easily create yourself. Simply read on and we’ll take you through step by step. Be prepared to feel gorgeous as you watch your loved ones say ‘I do’ on their big day.
Large Bun With Adornment
A large bun with a statement adornment is one of our all-time favorite wedding guest hairstyles. Not only is a bun chic and timeless, but it’s also simple to complete yet looks incredibly polished.
To complete this look for yourself at home, make sure your hair is clean and well-conditioned. We recommend the Elixir Ultime Deep Treatment Hair Care set for nourishment and added softness and shine. Once you have prepped and blow-dried, sleek it back into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic. Next, twist the hair from the ends until your entire ponytail twists around. Then, wrap the hair around the elastic until it covers and sits into a bun shape. Secure this with a second elastic or bobby pins. Whichever holds your hair in the most secure and comfortable position is best. Finally, add your favorite adornment. We highly recommend a ribbon wrapped around the base of the bun, or, a pearl/crystal hair slide.
Sleek Ponytail Hairstyles
Wishing for something simpler and even more timeless? Opt for sleek ponytail bridal hairstyles. Whether you go for a high pony with a lift or a sleeker style at the nape of your neck. Securing all fly aways will make all the difference. We also recommend using a flat iron to smooth out the ponytail itself.
Low Wavy Ponytail
This is no run of the mill, messy ponytail! It’s a super- chic wedding guest look that’s seriously stunning with a laid-back, nonchalant edge! If your hair is naturally wavy, let it air dry and apply a little texture spray. We love the Volume In Powder texturizing spray duo set. This will create soft beach waves. If your hair is on the straighter side, try plaiting damp hair and letting it dry to create a similar effect.
Now, part your hair in the center. Use a comb or soft bristle brush to smooth all of the hair back towards the nape of your neck. Once it’s smooth and neat, secure with a hair elastic. Finish off by taking a small section of hair from your ponytail. Wrap this around the elastic and secure discreetly underneath with a bobby pin.
Half Bun With Beachy Waves
Beachy waves are perfect for creating this gorgeous half-up style. Be sure to add hair texture to your tresses using a sea salt spray. Once you have your desired beach waves, you can begin.
Use a comb to create a parting around the crown. Sweep the top section of hair upwards and secure high at the back of your head. Wrap the hair into a bun shape and use bobby pins to secure it into place. Finish the look by spritzing the loose hair with the Curl Luminous Oil Spray by Bumble and Bumble.
Pinned Back Side Part
This one’s perfect for long and short hair. Once you’ve washed and conditioned it, blow-dry the hair straight. Then, simply brush the hair into a sleek, and even, side part. Use a simple or more decorative hair slide to hold back the side of the hair with less volume. For extra lift, simply tease your hair at the crown for a more glamorous look!
Braided ponytails are one of the simplest ponytail hairstyles, and DIY wedding styles, on our list. Once you’ve secured your ponytail at the height of your choice, you can begin braiding. The beauty is, you can opt for a simple braid, a fishtail, or a dutch braid. Whichever is your favorite. Simply starting with a sleek base will add charm and elegance to your hairstyle instantly.
