It’s wedding season! Across the globe, women are pulling invitations out of envelopes and asking themselves that age-old question: what am I supposed to do with my hair? We’ve put together seven beautiful hairstyles to consider for your next summer wedding, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner or party.
The best part? You can do all these styles yourself, without a professional hairdresser! All you need is a head of hair, two hands and some Madison Braids accessories.
This one is all about the volume. Secure your hair in a bun at the top of your head, then wrap a Top Knot Ponytail Holder around your bun to instantly fill it out. Frame your face by pulling out a few strands of hair at each temple. For a softer look, try positioning your bun at the nape of your neck and following the same steps.
Elegant but not uptight, the fishtail braid is easier than it looks. Make a side ponytail and separate it into two sections. Take a piece from the far side of one section and cross it over to the other, then cross a piece from the second section over to the first side. Repeat until you’ve reached the bottom of your braid.
To really drop jaws, add the Arisa Fishtail headband to create a double-fishtail masterpiece.
Festive and romantic, flower crowns are perfect for formal summer events. Curl your hair loosely and pull on a Madison Braid headband (we recommend the Butterfly or Nori Gourd for this one). Tuck real or artificial flowers into your hair just above your headband braid and pin them into place.
This sleek, understated style is a stunner. Straighten your hair and pull it into a neat ponytail at the nape of your neck, then fasten it with an elastic. To add length and volume, wrap the Bree Ponytail extension around the base of your ponytail and tie the included ribbons. Take a small section of hair from your newly extended ponytail and wrap it around the base to cover the elastic, then secure it with a bobby pin.
You’d appreciate having your hair off your neck during those outdoor summer events, but isn’t a ponytail too basic for a party? Not this one! Give yourself a high ponytail, leaving a tendril or two to frame your face if you prefer. Then, clip on the Naomi Ponytail extension to give yourself twenty-two inches of beautiful, heat-safe hair! Pair with a bold dress and statement earrings.
Elegance has never been easier. Simply slip on a Madison Braids headband, pull your hair into a knot at the base of your neck and hit it with some hairspray. For a classy but cool style, try the Double Lulu, Arisa Fishtail or Luka Chain headband braids.
We hope this list helps you head to those summer events feeling confident and radiant. Whichever styles you end up choosing, don’t forget to pick up some dry shampoo and conditioner sprays to add texture, body, moisture and shine to your hair. With a little help from the right accessories, you can enjoy fun, fuss-free summer style all season long.
