1. Get your curling iron and create good waves. Especially if you want a more elegant look to your ponytail, making big waves with a curling iron and some styling spray can result in a better looking ponytail that can match your stylish wedding outfit.

2. Comb your hair towards the side you want it to be tied. Yes, you can even use your fingers to comb your hair into a neat ponytail but make sure it still ends up neat and clean.

3. Tie with a scrunchie or clip with a barrette to hold your hair in place. Let the ponytail fall loosely on one side. You can even use about an inch-thick of hair from the bottom of the ponytail and wrap it around your ponytail to hide the scrunchie or add a more elegant finish.

The hairstyle may look simple but it can turn into something elegant for weddings. Of course, don’t forget to enhance your big curls and waves for cute side pony hairstyles.

    what are good hairstyles for a bride and her bridesmaids? I am looking for hairstyle suggestions for a bride and her bridesmaids. the bride’s hair is medium length and the maid of honor’s is short and spiky. One bridesmaid also has long hair. of course, i want the bride’s hairstyle to be something different and not like the rest of the bridesmaids.

    Hi Kline. The French twist/french roll is a good hair-updo for the bride. You can go for the ‘clean’ version or you can also do the ‘messy’ look version – depending on the personality of the bride. Another popular hairstyle for the bride is to bring the hair in an updo but with curls gathered at the back of the head. For bridesmaids, you can always opt for side ponytails, half-updo or a simple bun that won’t compete with the bride’s. Browse through our wedding hair features at http://weddingwhoop.com/category/wedding-hair-beauty/ and you will get ideas on how to do them. Good luck!
