5 Wedding Updos For Shoulder Length Hair – What do you do if you’re not blessed with long, luxurious hair?
Don’t worry! There are plenty of hairstyles that will make your short locks look beautiful and elegant for your wedding day.
Not everyone has long hair for their wedding, but these styles will look gorgeous just the same. Here are some of my favorites:
If you’re looking for a wedding style that’s easy to do yourself and works well with your hair, this loose updo is perfect.
It can be done on second or third day hair (gentle braiding the night before will help keep it neat), and the braid can be made from any material—even ribbon!
This style also works in any season, so you don’t have to worry about taking off an elaborate hat if it’s hot out.
The sleek ponytail is a great option for shoulder length hair. To get this look, you’ll need to tie all of your hair back into a low ponytail.
For extra security, use bobby pins to secure the ends of your ponytail so they don’t come loose throughout the day.
Instead of leaving it like that, though—to keep things interesting—you can also pull some strands out on either side and pin them back with bobby pins or butterfly clips.
This will give your updo more texture and dimension without going overboard with volume and height in the front (which might be a problem if you have fine hair).
The last thing to do is curl the ends of your ponytail so they stick out ever so slightly from underneath any headbands or clips holding them together at their base; otherwise, everything will be too flat-looking once it’s been secured in place by all those little pins!
Side French braid
If you’re looking for a braid that will stay in place, this is the option for you.
- Use a hair band to keep the braid in place, then begin braiding one side of your hair all the way down to the ends. Try to keep your braid loose and not too tight—tightly braided hair tends to be hard to manipulate later on!
- When you’ve reached the end of your hair, cross over into an underhand French braid while continuing down both sides of your head until they meet again at the nape of your neck (or wherever else feels comfortable). The final result should look like two braids meeting together in one big knot at either side of your head!
Textured half up half down style
You’ve got the length and texture, so now it’s time to get creative with your style. You can use a styling product to add texture and volume, or keep things soft and simple.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with your hair! Ask for help from someone you trust—it’s not shameful if you don’t know how to do your own updo yet!
When in doubt, try something new!
The braided chignon is another classic updo that can be worn in a variety of ways. While it looks best on medium to long hair, it can even work on shorter strands as long as you have enough volume at the crown of your head.
With so many ideas to choose from, you’re bound to find the perfect one for your style and hair length.
