Whether you are the bride or just someone attending a wedding on the beach, your hairstyle will be very important. Beach wedding hairstyles are tried and true to look great through the weather that often happens on the beach. Expect wind, humidity, and maybe even a little sand in your locks. But with the right hairstyle, you'll still look great at the end of the day. 

Here are some beach wedding hairstyles you can do yourself with ease:

Updos

Updos are the perfect choice for beach weddings because the hair is pulled back and the beach wind will not be blowing it all over your face. These might include:

  • The classic bun
  • The French twist updo
  • Sleek, polished ponytail
  • A modern beehive updo
  • A classic chignon
  • Multiple chignons - great for those with longer hair
  • Bun-chignon hybrid
  • Loose twists at the nape of the neck
  • Updo braids

Beach Casual

The updo is not the only style that works for a beach wedding. You can also do a beach casual look which is great for longer haired ladies as well. Be sure to add some anti-frizz serum to your styling regime and add some beach-themed flowers to your hair with secure pins so they don't blow away. You can pull the hair back from your face, but leave it long and flowing in the back for a great beach casual look. 

Side Ponytail or Braid

Another look for the beach hairstyle of your dreams is the side ponytail or braid. This allows your long locks to show from the front view as well but keeps them secured from breezy beach weather. You can add flowers, gems, or jewels to your hairstyle for more "pop", or wear a tiara. Wedding hair accessories really complete the look. This is a simple, classic option. If your hair is long enough, you can do this one easily. Make it very beachy with a loose braid or loose ponytail, rather than a tight one.

Now that you have these beach wedding hairstyles, you are ready to plan the hairstyle of your choice. Which is your favorite from the list?
