15 Flattering Wedding Hairstyles for Straight Hair

Naturally, straight hair is any hairstylist’s dream come true since they tend to have less frizz and texture, making them pliable to any number of styles.

Although traditionally, bridal hairdos have been about tight curls and ringlets, straight hair has its own formidable beauty, so choose the road less taken and experiment with your naturally straight hair for your wedding day.

1. The Classic Tiara & Veil

When you add a tiara, particularly a rhinestone one, to your wedding jewelry, it is the ultimate statement piece that essentially takes over the hairstyle.

Add some hair spray and serum to your straight hair or flat iron out any stray bits, and place your tiara in the center. Attaching your veil to this tiara hairstyle will even further make you look like a princess!


2. A Textured Bob

Wearing straight hair as a textured bob is very feminine and petite, especially when paired with exquisite, elaborate dresses like mermaid tail gowns. The hair can be blow-dried inward with some texturizing spray, and you are ready to go!


3. A Simple, Sleek High Bun

No bride can go wrong with a simple high bun with hair slicked back with a glossy finish. Absolutely perfect if you want to emulate Meghan Markle’s royal wedding look or are having a simple church wedding and want a neat and classic hairstyle to work with.


4. The Flapper’s Bob

If your hair is short, go for short bridal hairstyle like this one. Flapper bobs were very sought-after haircuts in the 20s, and they’ve been slowly and surely making a comeback.

Even if you leave this classy bob as is without any hair accessories, it makes a bride’s cheekbones appear higher and works spectacularly with large hanging earrings and a statement choker necklace.


5. Big Luminous Waves With Tropical Hair Flowers

Big hair is always welcome for a bridal hairstyle because it accentuates oval faces and smaller face shapes, but mostly it draws attention which every bride wants.

Create a style with big luminous waves and plenty of backcombing and volume-adding products, and tie the look together with tropical hair flowers or a tropical flower clip.

Having faux berries and foliage is more unusual but will look stunning for an outdoor wedding.


6. A Wavy Bun In A Hair Net
