Tips for Choosing the Best Beach Wedding Hair Style

  • Ocean Breeze: So this is perhaps one of the greatest factors to consider when choosing a beach hairstyle. Whether you want an up-do, completely down, 1/2 up 1/2 down, don’t forget about the sea breeze. Choose a style that keeps your hair off your face. You’ll want to look into your hubby’s eyes and savor the moments of your wedding day. So while it’s flirtatious and whimsical for a model ad shoot, no one wants to be pushing hair off their face for an entire wedding ceremony. An up-do is an easy solution. But if keeping your hair down in non-negotiable, consider pinning back just the hair in the front. Also, wrap around braids and headbands provide extra help for keeping hair in place.

  • Sea Salt: The whole trending “Salty Hair, Don’t Care.” Yeah, that’s great for a good ole’ beach day, but not your wedding day. The salty air can do wild things to your luscious locks, so get ready to add an extra dose of shine drops, hairspray, or other serum to keep things looking fresh and in place.
  • Hire Help: It may be worth splurging on a professional stylist for your wedding day. Even if you just want a simple look, the touch of a expert will have your hair soft, shiny, and camera ready for your wedding day.
