Fishtail Looks for Weddings

The fishtail pleat has gained popularity for wedding hair over the last few years and we suggest that you match this look with a beautiful braided bun. This look is super sustainable and can be pulled off for both your day and evening look, meaning you don’t need to change your wedding look up throughout the day! Pinterest is a great way looking at wedding hair ideas and fishtail braids and we could spend all day looking at out fishtail wedding braid pins – have you created your board yet?

The Rope Wedding Braid

Braids are in this season with the whole Kardashian/Jenner clan loving this look. This is an ideal look for anyone who wants to take their wedding hair into their own hands. This wedding hairstyle is perfect if you are looking for an effortless look which will be gorgeous in your pictures. The rope braid is fairly easy to do however it can be trickier if you want to create an up-do look- not to worry I’m sure there will be a bridesmaid or two to help you with this one. Match this with a simple blush make up look and you will be amazing on your wedding day. This look works much better for long hair but remember there are always extensions to create volume. You will be able to find a tutorial for this online if you would like to practise this one ahead of the day.


Wavy Wedding Hair

If you’re not sure about doing a full curly look for your wedding day and would like to put a spin on it try going wavy. Retro waves are a stunning summer wedding hairstyle and the perfect alternative. Make your waves thick and glossy and create the perfect combination of retro-meets-modern. Also by keeping it simple and wavy you do not need to worry about those curls going flat or frizzy!
