How to Style a Bridal Ponytail | Bridal Hair + Accessory Ideas

The ponytail. Some might say it's the workhorse of hairstyles (forgive the pun!). Women with long hair wear them allll the time—from the gym, to dinner, on a date, to an interview, and as a wedding day hairstyle!

Depending on your personal and wedding day aesthetic, you can take a ponytail in almost any direction, especially with the right bridal hair accessories.


Bridal Ponytails and Wedding Hair Accessories 

Below are a few of our brides' favorite ways of rocking a ponytail and the bridal hair accessories that elevate their style for the big day.





Textured Ponytail


Volume and texture define this bridal hairstyle. It's achieved by backcombing the hair before pulling it back into a ponytail. You can also pull it softly back and then add waves and curls to create a gorgeous, full effect. Or do a little of both!

Glittering bridal hair combs are sensational with this wedding day look. Available in all kinds of styles and sizes, they're versatile, too. For instance, a dainty bridal hair comb may be right if you're going for a traditional look. For brides that want a little sparkle, hair pins may be just the thing. Women with bold, glamorous bridal style may find that a glittering, statement hair comb is perfect. Generally, bridal hair combs are placed at the ponytail's base or frame the face at a flattering angle.




A Sleek, Low Ponytail

Pulled back and secured at the nape of the neck, this wedding look is a classic. To bump up the romantic factor, add soft waves and curls.

Bridal hair vines  are long, flexible headpieces that can be worn in many ways. They can be gold or silver and be covered in crystals, pearls, or both! Placed similarly to a flower crown, a hair vine brings stunning sparkle to your ponytail.

As we mentioned, the flexibility of hair vines enables you to mold them to suit your personal style. For example, hair vines can be wrapped around your head and ponytail for a boho, free-spirited feel. On the other hand, classic brides may find a traditional hair vine complements their wedding day look.

Side-swept Ponytail

Asymmetry brings interest to this wedding hairstyle. It's pulled to one side and can be worn sleek or messy and with or without braids.

This style looks sensational with statement wedding hair accessories that frame the face or accent the base of your ponytail. For example, worn at the top of your ponytail, floral hair accessories such as a crystal rose comb emphasize a romantic aesthetic. A floral crystal headband or understated tiara can produce the same effect while framing the face.
