Traditional Spanish hairstyles for ladies frequently feature three elements: a bun, a center part, and some decorative accents (often floral).

In addition, Spanish hairstyles have traditionally been pinned up and away from the neck, reflecting the requirement for the culture to keep the hair out of the way.

If you want to make a statement and appear regal for your wedding, go for a much more dramatic Spanish hairstyle. Traditional Spanish hairstyles like the center part and low chignon are kept current with those contemporary additions. 

The bold red flower and lipstick are a tradition in Flamenco hairstyles, and it looks incredible here. This Spanish or Flamenco wedding hairstyle is sleek, sexy, and has a vintage vibe. We adore this look.
