Not just suited to the bride herself, these styles are also often used as half up half down wedding hairstyles for bridesmaids. You could look at this if you have just one bridesmaid or several and you want their hairstyles to be uniform.
The curly mountains
Curl your hair with a curling iron or wand and add power to these ringlets with a good hairspray. Using bobby pins, gather the curls and pin them together high up on your head. Use neutral coloured pins and keep them hidden among the curls or opt to make a feature of them with diamond or pearl clips and pins. Try to keep this look natural and let the curls flow randomly and not to any particular pattern. The hair at the back can lazily curl down the neck of the bride. This makes for one of the most casual, undone and simplistic, yet very fashionable half up half down hairstyles.
The right accessories
Accessories can be used very flatteringly in the hair, half up half down wedding hairstyles in particular benefit from accessories. You could create bangs that can be pulled back and secured with a decorative clip or pin and depending on your hair length, you can fasten a pretty accessory at the top, the centre or lower end of your hair – whichever way suits your own particular style. For a summer wedding, it may be an idea to utilize gorgeous butterfly clips or a flowered hair piece. For a winter wedding, you could use an ice blue coloured comb with diamond work. Remember that a low ponytail is high fashion today, so try to keep it sleek and simple.
