Summer weddings combine elegant style and casual chic to perfection, making them ideal for post-ceremony bonfires, dance parties, and more! I should know, my own wedding is just 9 days away! (OMG it’s actually happening!) In order for you, the guests of a summertime wedding, to look great as a summer wedding guest without having to spend hours at the salon or go crazy trying to figure out how to do it yourself, I’ve gathered some of the prettiest and easiest low-maintenance summer wedding hairstyles.
Boho waves– Boho waves are one of our favorite looks for summer and they’re perfect for low-maintenance weddings. Check out some boho waves tutorials on YouTube to easily learn how to recreate this style yourself. Then add pizzazz with a single flower behind your ear (a floral crown says “I’m the bride”, so just go for a dainty accent flower as a guest) or a rhinestone boho headband.
Simple topknot –When you want your hair off your face, but you still want to look put together, a simple topknot is the way to go. Put a shine serum or Argan oil (my favorite!) on your hair to give your locks a rich gloss, or try anti frizz serum if you know the humidity will tempt your mane to frizz up (I know mine always does!). Then pull your hair back (parting is optional here), create simple topknot, and secure it with your preferred hair clip. Bobby pins are a must to capture any flyaways, and hairspray helps hold this look in place. Add glitz to this style with a fancy bobby pin accents or by wearing a fun fascinator, depending on how fancy you want to get.
Messy braid –Perfect for a wedding that’s rustic, beachy, or otherwise outdoors, a messy braid gets your hair out of your face and allows you to show off statement earrings, yay for sparkles! This look naturally reads as casual, which means that you won’t upstage the bride. To add a little more flair to this style, weave ribbons (or a strand of delicate pearls!) into your braid or poke flowers into the braid.
