Preparing for your wedding is an exciting time. With all of the preparations in place, you may be experimenting with new bridal hairstyles for your big day. There are many braided hairstyles that will complement your wedding style and give you a glamorous look on your wedding day.

Tree Braids

To create tree braids, your stylist will cornrow your hair with bulk Indian braiding hair. She will then thread the strands through the cornrow, creating a "tree." These braids resemble a sewn in weave and can be worn long and flowing. Tree braids last up to six weeks or longer. Tree braids complement off the shoulder dresses or silhouette necklines.

Your hair should be braided no more than a week before your wedding for the best results.

Micro Braids

These tiny braids are versatile and can be styled in any number of styles. Pull them up for a fancy updo or wear them long and flowing for a feminine and demure look. Add in live flowers for a formal touch. Your micro braids can be weaved into your hair in your natural hair color or in a different color for a highlighted look. Micro braids can last anywhere from six weeks to four months. Use virgin Indian hair for the longest wear. These versatile braids make the transition from wedding to honeymoon flawless.

Braided Buns

For a demure look, try a braided bun for your wedding hairstyle. This style is soft and delicate, giving you a soft look. The braided bun works best with outdoor, informal weddings. Choose a few flowers from your bouquet to weave into your hair and complement your look. The braided bun is a simple style that is created with Indian braiding hair and lasts up to four weeks. When you use Indian human hair, the style can withstand heat and water, making it durable and functional. Wear your braided bun on your honeymoon and take a dip in the pool!

There are many looks that you can create for your braided wedding hairstyles. From buns to locs to micros and twists, you will look like a goddess on your wedding day.

      I love the idea of having an ethnic hair motif for a wedding. The picture of the bride with the upswept braids is a look to aim for.

      Thank you for this
