20 Wedding Guest Hairstyles You Need to Copy Right Now

Got a million weddings to go to? We gotchu.

Who doesn’t love a good wedding? Free food, plenty of drinks, a dance floor, and the perfect excuse to get all dressed up and have something new to post on the ‘gram. And even better if you’re not actually in the wedding as a bridesmaid, since you get to do and wear whatever the hell you want (within reason, I guess).

What about your hair, though? Because you’re gonna need more than one look. To help you out faster than a Pinterest board, check out these 20 wedding guest hairstyles to get you through the rest of 2019.

Barrette Ponytail

The tiniest switches sometimes make the biggest impressions. If you favour the low ponytail, swap your hair tie with a statement barrette or two instead.

Bouncy Curls

Once you’ve mastered styling your own curls, every day will be a good curl day. Bouncy hair like this is perfect for any occasion, including weddings.

Low Bun and Lots of Barrettes

The secret to not overdoing it with over-the-top hair barrettes is by balancing it with a simpler style, like this low loose bun.

A sleek and sexy ponytail like this one is equally as stylish as it is functional. When the bouquet toss comes, you’ll be more than ready with your hair tied back.

Beachy Low Bun

If beach waves are kinda your thing, no need to totally change them. With a soft, low bun like this one, you’ll get the same effortless vibe but with a little more effort put into it.

’90s Blowout

If you’re tired of the long, loose waves of the last few years, revisit the trends of another decade. Who knew a late ’90s/early ’00s hairstyle could feel so refreshing? This voluminous blowout would go perfectly with a simple slip dress.

Voluminous Low Ponytail

Be careful with this dreamy ponytail—it’s so good you just might take the attention away from the bride.

Faux Fringe

The love between the couple is real, but your bangs don’t have to be. When you can make fake fringe look this good, why even bother going through the grow-out process later on? Leave the tail out of your high bun and you’ll have everyone thinking they’re legit.

Loose Twist

If you’re in the wedding, you might not want to be too trendy, but if you’re a guest, you can lean as far into the ’90s trend as you want. This style is the updated, upside-down version of the fountain ponytail. It’s a twist on a twist, if you will.

10 Slicked Back Strands

Outdoor weddings are unpredictable. Start with a wet look like the one shown here, and you won’t be stressed about your hair if it starts to rain.

11 Tousled French Twist

Updos like the French twist usually suck to try to do on yourself. One tiny bump or rogue hair and you have to start completely over. But if you keep it tousled like this, loose strands are the goal.

12 Half-Up Ponytail

Think your hair’s too short for a ponytail? Well, it ain’t. Pull the front up as high as you can, leave the back down, pull some pieces out around your face, and boom. You’ve got yourself a short ponytail.

13 A Braided Updo

Braids are one of those hairstyles that just looks good from all angles. Wear yours down, or pull them up in a style like this one. You really, really can’t go wrong.

14 Soft Waves

If your hair is short and fine, add a little body and movement with loose, airy waves. Best part with a soft look like this? It’s okay if your curls fall out throughout the night (that’s kinda what you’re going for).

15 Soft and Slicked Strands

Ceremony in the front, reception in the back. This look features both slicked strands (key for keeping your hair out of your face) and romantic loose waves.

16 Double Buns With Bows

Sure, the day isn’t about you, but you still want to look fire, right? It’s totally acceptable to put a little time and effort into your hairstyle than usual, but this one only looks complicated. If you can twist your hair in a bun, you can copy this updo yourself. Slap a few velvet bows on it, and you’re set.

17 Topknot

With all the wind and humidity of a beach wedding, don’t try to do too much with your hair (because spoiler: it won’t last). A simple high bun suits the carefree vibes of a outdoor ceremony.

18 Raked Back Strands

If you always style your short hair the same way, you’re missing out on a lot of good hair moments. Take this look for instance. With a little styling cream and a rake of your fingers, you can transform your everyday bob into a look fit for a wedding.

19 Half-Bun

Torn between wearing your hair up and wearing it down? That’s why this half-up hairstyle was invented. Like two looks in one, the half-bun gives you the best of both styles.
