As a professional wedding accessory designer in Ireland with an online shop selling headpieces and veils I’ve really noticed a change over the years in how brides choose to style their wedding hair. It’s exciting to see brides breaking away from the ‘norm’ and styling their bridal hair in unique and stylish ways. Over the years I have noticed the ponytail becoming very popular with young brides. So if you love the thoughts of wearing a ponytail on your wedding day but you have no idea where to begin then hopefully I can help and inspire you!
The braided beauty
For those of you who know me you will know that I absolutely love bohemian weddings. I really love the relaxed look and I feel this hairstyle would work really well for a destination wedding in the Caribbean or equally in a rural English countryside wedding in the Cotswolds. The braids are very soft and ethereal and I can imagine this style looking even more gorgeous with a whimsical bridal hair vine like Blanca weaved throughout or wrapped around this hairstyle. Pair with Australian designer Grace Loves Lace wedding gown for the perfect laidback luxe vibe.
The Sleek look
If you are looking for a polished look then the sleek ponytail is the perfect choice. This look is very modern and chic and would work well with a minimal wedding dress from American designer Alyssa Kristin.
The Sophisticated High Ponytail
This style is perfect for the bride who knows her style and isn’t afraid to show it. The high ponytail can add some drama to your look and looks great when worn with modern and minimalist gowns. You can keep the pony textured or style it straight for a more polished look.
The low ponytail
If you are looking for a relaxed look which is understated then the low pony ticks all these boxes. Keep the pony sleek and straight or curl loosely for a more relaxed finish.
Influenced by fashion icons like Brigitte Bardot this 60's hairstyle is fun and flirty. This voluminous look can add real character to your bridal look. I can totally envisage a New York City bride embracing this look!! Style it with a pony wrap headpiece to complete your look.
This fuss free ponytail is soft and feminine with plenty of loose romantic strands.
The untamed Maine
I adore this look and I admire any bride who isn’t afraid to express themselves. If you are that edgy rock and roll bride then this style would be perfect for you. This untamed look is perfectly imperfect.
