It’s supposed to be the happiest moment of your life, but it’s also the most stressful! Wedding planning is a months-long commitment that can make even the sanest woman go a little crazy. So crazy, in fact, that in the hubbub of buying a dress, finding a venue, sending out invitations, making party favors, and everything else, you forget about your hair and makeup! We’re here to help. Below are three stress-free bridal hairstyles that are guaranteed to be flattering, unique, and most of all, easy. All of the accessories are hassle-free, too. You can find great deals on bridal headpieces on eBay. And with our eBay Coupon Codes, you can save even more.
Want to know the number-one secret to keeping your hair easy and elegant on your wedding day? Keep it down! Updos may be the top bridal hairstyles, but they’re also the biggest pain. Loose hair requires less product, less time, and works well with nearly every length and texture. The best way to style loose hair is with soft waves. It’s romantic, classic, and carefree – just how you should appear on your wedding day!
Start with clean hair that has been completely dried with a blow dryer. You’ll need a curling iron with an either 1-inch or 2-inch barrel, a handful of clips, and your preferred brand of hairspray. (Shorter hair should use a smaller barrel.) Using a comb, divide your hair into quarters, first going down your center part, then the top and bottom of your head. Clip each quarter so that it is easily distinguishable from the others and out of the way. Unclip one of the bottom quarters, and comb out a 1.5-inch section of hair. Spray with hairspray. Next, wrap the section around the barrel of the curling iron – do not use the clamp! That will give it a crimped, unnatural appearance. Hold for anywhere between 20 and 40 seconds, depending on the texture of your hair. Repeat along the bottom quarters, and then the top. Once finished, spray with more hairspray for extra hold. Finish by parting your hair to either side.
Once your waves are ready, you’ll want to accessorize them with an equally romantic headpiece. A rhinestone and lace headband ($16.50) would look elegant and refined on more casual brides. If you choose to wear a veil, the drama of a lace-trimmed cathedral veil ($24.99) pairs nicely with the vintage look of these waves. Whatever you choose, remember to use our eBay Coupon Codes!
For high-fashion brides, using a veil in an unconventional way is the best way to make a statement. This is one of those bridal hairstyles that will take people’s breath away. And it’s surprisingly easy to do!
This style works best on brides with long, straight hair. Start with hair that hasn’t been washed for one day. This may sound gross, but the accumulated natural oils will help your hair stay in place. Trust us, it won’t look greasy! Comb out your hair until it is as smooth as possible. Take the very top part of your hair, comb it again, and then spray it with hairspray. Next, using the fine-tooth comb, backcomb it to give it some volume. In other words, take the comb, and using short strokes, comb the hair back toward the scalp. Once you have the desired amount of volume, gently smooth the hair back along the top of the head and secure with bobby pins. At this point, it should look like your standard half-up, half-down hairstyle. Next, take the remaining amount of hair and comb it into a very high looped bun (You know, the one where you flip the ponytail over the rubber band). Take the bun and fan it out around the crown of the head to make a sort of crescent shape, and secure into place with bobby pins. Spray with hairspray.
Now it’s time to wrap. For a more traditional look, go with a 1-tier veil with satin trim ($2.99). Pin the veil right above the bun, and then lift it up and over. Gently gather it into a loose circle around the bun, and then pin into place. Another option is a simple birdcage veil ($14.99), which is not only easy, but super trendy. Since birdcages are very study, all you need to do is clip it near the bun and then arrange it to your heart’s content. As you can see, simple veils are pretty cheap.

Ornamented Low Bun
Nothing is more classic – or more versatile – than the low bun. It complements nearly every face shape, dress style, wedding theme, whatever. When you choose one of these bridal hairstyles, you don’t have to worry about it matching anything or working with your hair. It’s a guaranteed hit.
Once again, start with hair that hasn’t been washed for a day. Comb it smooth. For an extra sleek look, take the time to straighten your hair. When you’re ready, comb your hair back into a low ponytail. To give your hair more volume, backcomb your hair beforehand. You can also section off the sides of your hair, put the rest in a ponytail, and then pin the sides right next to the ponytail. Next, take your hair and divide it in two. Clip one section, and then take the other section and twist it into a rope. Now take this section and spiral it into a flat bun that touches the nape of your next. You’ll need to go under the section of hair that’s still loose. Pin until secure. Next, take the other section, twist it into a rope, and then spiral it in the opposite direction. Pin until secure. Spray with hairspray.
You can accessorize this hairstyle any which way you please. A pearl and rhinestone tiara ($9.99) is a timeless look that’s perfect for an evening wedding. A flower garland ($9.30) pinned at the crown of your head is sweet and dreamy, and perfectly captures the boho-chic look that is so popular in weddings today. Both of these options are Buy It Now, so you don’t have to stress about bidding wars. All you need to do is check out, and type in our eBay Coupon Codes before you buy.
