There is something truly breathtaking about a gravity-defying hairstyle that requires a lot of time at the salon on the day of your wedding. However, natural hairstyles and easy updos are on the rise! As trendy brides pursue rustic barn weddings, low maintenance wedding hairstyles are becoming a beautiful necessity.

So, if you’re looking for a classic yet simple bridal look that’s just as pretty as a 3-hour-updo, check out Deseo Salon & BlowDry’s favorite low maintenance styles!

Our Favorite Low Maintenance Wedding Hairstyles


The Classic Bun: Elegant, Whether Neat or Messy

As most of you already know, a bun involves twisting your hair around a point and securing it with bobby pins, a scrunchie, or a clip. Brides with particularly fine hair may choose to braid their hair first. The classic bun allows you to look great and be practical at the same time! This simple updo keeps hair off your neck and is sturdy enough to hold up through hours of dancing. To make sure your bun stays perfect, put it in place while your hair is still slightly wet. Enjoy a relaxing shampoo at the salon before you pin up your beautiful locks!

Braid Crown: For the Elven Princess in You

The braid crown is both simple and timeless. It’s also super on-trend thanks to the popularity of Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones. However, a braid crown isn’t just for fantasy stories; it’s perfect for a storybook wedding too! If you have long hair, you can create a braid crown that incorporates all of your hair, offering the same durability benefits of a bun, or you can create a braid crown that is half-up and half down, leaving some beautiful locks to blow in the breeze.

Side-Braid: Mermaid-Like Beauty for High-Volume Tresses

This simple yet gorgeous style is perfect for casual beach weddings. While a thin braid can be beautiful, this is an especially good option for women with exceptionally thick hair, since a large braid can successfully keep your hair from flying all over during the ceremony and reception. If you want to keep things rustic, consider tying some twine or burlap at the end of your braid (over a hair tie of some kind, of course). Of course, you can also dress up this look with the addition of a fancy clip or bejeweled hair accessory. Another popular take on the ever-versatile side-braid is to insert fresh flowers throughout.

Half-Up, Half-Down: The Best of Both Worlds

Half-up, half-down is the common terminology for taking the top layer of your hair and tying it into a ponytail, bun, or braid. This creates a bit of protection for the lower layers of hair, which are free to stay loose and long. Many brides love the idea of having their hair loose and free but balk at the worry that it will snarl or get in their eyes. The half-up, half-down look allows you to keep your hair in place on top while showing off shiny straight hair or full beachy waves cascading down your back. This look is romantic and sweet, works for all face types, and complements most styles of wedding dress. Best of all, you can try it out ahead of time in a few different ways before you settle on the look you want for your big day.
