In your quest to complete your bridal look, finding the perfect wedding hairstyle is on the list right after finding your wedding dress! We've previously talked about bridal ponytails, glamorous Hollywood waves, and low buns, and today we're focusing on loose waves (also known as long waves).
Long locks are definitely a must to achieve this look, but that doesn't mean they have to be natural! If your hair is isn't quite long or thick enough, extensions can bring extra volume and length.

What are long, loose waves?
This romantic and feminine wedding hairstyle features long, flowing waves cascading down the back. The waves are typically loose and relaxed, creating a natural and effortless look. This hairstyle is a great choice for brides with long hair who want to exude elegance and grace on their wedding day.
What makes long waves different from Hollywood waves?
Hollywood waves are a more structured version of the classic wave. This long hairstyle features pronounced, deep waves that are created with a smaller curling iron. These glam waves are typically more defined, creating a glamorous and polished look. They're a great option for brides who want to bring red-carpet style to their aisle.

Some of our favorite ways to accent a long waves wedding hairstyle is with a crystal hair vine, sparkling headband, combs, or a regal crystal tiara. All of these accessories look terrific when paired with loose waves.
For many of our brides, headbands are a natural choice. They can be positioned in just the right place that suits your hairstyle and face. Headbands are also available in all kinds of designs, so they're a great way to personalize your look. Bobby pins are used to secure this hair accessory, so it'll be comfortable and stay put even when you're dancing the night away.
If you’re looking for something a bit more glamorous and regal, opt for a crystal tiara. This look is perfect for a classic wedding ceremony and will make you feel like a modern-day princess! Crowns and tiaras are positioned atop your head and affixed with a little comb as well as with bobby pins to ensure everything stays in place.

Hair vines, in particular, are super popular among our brides. We're confident that love comes from the fact that they offer the most styling flexibility. Hair vines are created using bendable wire and come in all kinds of designs, from delicate to bold. As a result, your stylist can sculpt and pin your bridal hair vine to follow your headshape, flatter your hair, and glitter from every angle!
