Wedding Hair Trial Ideas

Wedding season is just around the corner here in Minnesota! Even though the snowfall doesn’t give hope for spring, my mind is seeing cheery bouquets and brides walking down a grassy aisle in the warm air!

Wedding season coming means that we’re deep in trials, and I wanted to share with you some real life trial runs and give you a few details on the brides hair. This way, you can get some ideas for yourself as you brainstorm for your own wedding!

Her hair was well past her shoulders, but very fine and lacked volume. I used a lot of techniques to make it look much more full than it was in reality.

This will get some polishing on the wedding day so there’s zero flyaways, but overall her hair required a lot of product to hold curl. The soft wave was a good choice because the length and weight of it wouldn’t hold tighter curls all night. She’s going to get more layers before the wedding and that will help the curls last and last.

We actually changed this look up entirely on the wedding day! She didn’t love how the hair was parted in the front and wanted it all going straight back, so we did that and had to adjust the braid to go more down her back rather than across her head to accommodate the new look in front.

This bride wanted to try both up and down because she was undecided. I enhanced her natural curls with a small curling iron, rather than changing their shape.

I pulled it all up, still leaving some curls out for a softer look, and this is what she ended up going with for her wedding day. It was beautiful!!

Well friends, I hope some of these real brides gave you some inspiration! For even more, check out my Instagram at
