Chic & Easy Wedding Guest Hairstyles Plus Size Fashion

Let's talk wedding hair! 


Deciding how to wear your hair for a wedding is a big decision. It needs to work well with your dress, suit your face shape, and work with the dress code of the wedding. You also need to decide if you're going to take the salon route or attempt a dreamy hair-do on your own. We love a DIY moment, but it can be daunting! 


To show you just how easy it is to create a wedding-ready hairstyle without a professional, we have pulled some of our favourite weddings hairstyles to give you some inspo. Chic, easy and oh-so-stunning, here are our 4 favourite wedding guest hairstyles that can be done at home. 

A half-up-half-down do is a staple, and with a bit of finesse, this hairstyle can be a formal favourite. If you're not handy with a braid, the half-up section can be styled with a classy barrette or fresh sprig of babies breath for an extra touch. Add some waves with a large barreled curling wand and shake them out for some added texture. 


Perfect for: This style is very versatile, and works well with most lower necklines. 

This braid is easier than it looks! If you're after that chic messy-updo look, start with some texturising spray for a bit of grip, then braid back a section and pin the remaining into a classic low bun. For a finishing touch, tug at the braid to loosen it up a bit and release some messy fall-away bits (these can be curled if you're after a more polished, romantic look). 


Perfect for: An up-do is perfect for when you want the focus to stay on your dress or your decolletage. Perhaps an asymmetrical neckline, or even a high neckline.  

If you've got a natural curl, show it off! No matter your texture, a high pony with a dramatic bit of volume is a fabulous way to show off your gorgeous face, and it's totally at-home achievable. Gather the pieces you want to be pulled back, secure with a reliable elastic, and voila! If you're going for that romantic look, let some flyaways frame your face. 


Perfect for: This hairstyle looks oh-so-elegant with higher necklines, as it creates space between your hair and the beginning of the dress, thus elongating your neck. 

Tussled and gorgeous, we are obsessed with a side braid. If you do a tighter side braid, pulling pieces out and embracing the chaos can make for a really pretty style. For more texture, once again we recommend a pre-curl if you have straight hair, it really ups the glam scale.


Perfect for: This dreamy hairstyle works beautifully with V-necklines. 

We hope this has supplied some inspiration. Feel free to give it a practice run (or 2) before the big day!
