Bridal Hairstyle Ideas for 2021

June 2, 2021

Calling all my fellow brides-to-be! (or anyone looking for gorgeous fancy hairstyles!) I’ve teamed up with my best friend Maddie, the owner and lead stylist of Salon Nine, to bring you bridal hairstyle ideas for 2021. Maddie created each of these hairstyles based on the trends in hair for 2021 while also keeping in mind the classic and timeless nature of a wedding and, therefore, a bridal hairstyle.

Maddie and I finalized my bridal hairstyle for my wedding next month (ahh!) and it is *very* similar to one of these three! I’ll leave you guessing as to which one 😜. Let’s take a look at each!

Twisted Braid with Ivy style Jewels

This hairstyle has garden fairy vibes with a touch of elegance in the crystal jewels. This is perfect for a bride who wants a ‘polished but undone’ look. For 2021 as far as bridal hairstyle trends go we are seeing a lot of sparkle and statement headpieces. Similar to fashion in general after a loungewear-heavy 2020 people are excited to dress up again and looks in fashion, beauty, and hairstyles are all trending towards the glamorous and the ‘statement making’. This hairstyle definitely does that! Here are the exact crystal wired headband and crystal hair pins that I’m wearing. Some other favorites include:

Low Twisted Updo

What makes this updo so special is the twists and the way the low bun sits because of them. This is a great hairstyle for a polished, formal, wedding. I’m wearing the same crystal hairpins as above, just all pinned together to great a statement piece.

Bridal Ponytail

Hello DRAMA. This is not your everyday ponytail! This bridal hairstyle gives the illusion of a half up, half down look but is really just a giant curled ponytail that is pinned to create a layered look. To achieve this hairstyle you’ll need clip in extensions (both for length and volume). The pony is tightly curled for a retro ‘Barbie’s little sister skipper’ vibe (who remembers that?!)

This hairstyle has a rosegold wired piece twisted around the top of the pony. Rose gold is big for 2021 bridal hairstyles!

Which of these three bridal hairstyle ideas for 2021 is your favorite?! Any guesses which is similar to the one I’m doing for my wedding!? 👀

    OKAY WHAT?!!? Your hair is amazing!!!! I love these styles so dang much. I can’t stop staring at each and every one of them, though the first is definitely my favorite and that second one is SO elegant. The last one gives me like… fancy cottagecore vibes? Which I am 100% here for. I can’t wait to see what your hair looks like on your wedding day!
