After our post last week on the best wedding hairstyles for long hair, I got a lot of requests for ‘dos for curly hair gals. We love giving readers EXACTLY what you’re looking for, so here it is! Our favorite wedding hairstyles for curly hair, by popular demand.
As a curly-haired bride myself, deciding on my wedding hairstyle was definitely a process. I knew that I couldn’t wear my hair down in Florida where I was getting married, or else as soon as I arrived at our venue my hair would be a giant ball of frizz. Thanks, humidity.
Instead, I opted for a style similar to number 5, which allowed me to get that loose, romantic hair updo I was looking for without having to worry about it collapsing during the night. Note: When you have hair that’s in between wavy and curly like mine, hair spray and bobbing pins are your new best friends on your wedding day.

I also want to mention that for most hair types (especially curly), if you’re planning to wear your hair up, I highly recommend having your hair washed a day or two BEFORE your wedding. I had mine blown out the day before so it looked styled for our rehearsal dinner, and was then ready to go for my hairstylist the day of our wedding. Your hair will be much easier to style when it hasn’t been washed in a day or two (or three, depending on how oily your hair gets. Mine is like an oil slick on day three). If you’re wearing it down that’s another story. If I air-dry my hair it only looks good that day, so if I were going with a look more like number 8 I would wash it early that morning and let that sucker dry before doing anything to it, but that’s just me.
I love these wedding hairstyles, below, for all types of curly hair. Whether you have wavy, curly, coiled, or somewhere in between hair, these wedding hairstyles will work with your hair, not against it.
