It doesn’t get any more beautiful than an outdoor, summer affair. But, when it comes to bridal style and hair, the sweltering heat poses quite the challenge. Have no fear! We’ve got our favorite wedding hairstyles to make it easy for summer brides to look refreshed, even through harsh summer conditions.
Soft Curls Crowned with a Braid
A waterfall braid adds instant volume, in addition to looking pretty darn good on a long set of locks. Begin by spraying our N4 Sugar Texturizing Spray all over your hair to create natural looking waves from top to bottom. From there, create a waterfall braid to crown your tresses and secure the braid behind your ear. If needed, define your curls with a barrel iron (Remember to use our N4 Thermal Styling Spray first) and brush your hair out to keep the waves effortlessly chic. Whether you’re staying cool indoors or enjoying the sun, this sweet and simple hairstyle is sure to wow your friends and family. Finish with a misting of N4 Mighty Hair Spray to lock the look in place.
A braided up-do will give any bride a dramatic look that doesn’t look like it’s trying too hard. The style is a combination of elegant braids and natural curls tucked into a low bun. This look works best for brides with medium to long, thick hair. We always recommend applying our N4 Sugar Texturizing Spray to help keep the style in place.
PRO TIP: Keep lightweight oil, such as our N4 Fluoro5 Elixer Restore and Repair Oil, on hand during your big day to tame any flyaways.
Statement Braid with Flowers
French braids are the perfect way to show your hair off the best way possible. To create this look, apply our N4 Styling Foam on damp hair to create voluminous hair full of velvety texture. Once dry, create your french braid and gently loosen parts of the braid throughout before securing with a hair tie at the bottom. This is one of those looks that can go with any bridal style. If you have an ombre or balayage, this style is ideal for showing your locks in a fun and playful way.
Ultra Glamorous Pony
If your tresses speak volumes, this look is for you! A glamorous pony is perfect for brides who want to keep their hair off their neck in summer weather, while still showing off a ton of volume. Begin by spritzing with our N4 Thermal Styling Spray, and curling your locks with a barrel iron. Brush hair, and secure your high ponytail, while forming layers on the sides. Leave behind a few strands on either side to frame your face. Work some N4 Texture Paste through your ‘tail for a textured look. Finish by spraying a generous amount of our N4 Mighty Hairspray all over your hair to keep your hairstyle looking fabulous all day long.
PRO TIP: Pair your ‘do with an accessory that matches your dress and other jewelry.
Messy Braided Crown Bun
All it takes is curly hair and a strategically pinned bun to create a gorgeous hairstyle for your big day. This look portrays a soft and ethereal feeling while keeping your hair off your neck – PERFECT for summer brides. Make a loose braid around your head, then rough it up a bit to give it a natural, messy look. You can choose to keep it classic with a three-strand braid, or mix things up with a French or Dutch braids. To ensure a strong hold throughout the evening, spritz a generous amount of our N4 Non Aerosol Hairspray all over your tresses. This will keep the style in place without stiffness.
