Quick bridal hair restyle ideas for a busy wedding day

Wanting to change up your look from ceremony to evening reception but worried about time?

​A half-up style like this is a perfect option, especially if you're wearing a veil!

Braids, twists, and accessories under your veil are fantastic ground work for a second look - one that doesn't take much time away from your guests. Take your veil off, and BAM! There's some interest on show that was originally hiding. Or have one of your bridesmaids take our the plait/braid to let your hair fall fully free for all that dancing.

​This approach also gives you more options for leaning into your wedding aesthetic or reception theme.

Another option is to work with your stylist on the morning and have them create a loose updo pinned lightly, so that you can take this down on the evening for a full revamp! Of course this doesn't suit everyone so speak to your professional on what's achievable with your hair/style choices.

There are ways to make more drastic transformations too, especially if you're willing to spend some time with a stylist between ceremony and reception. Our bridal stylists are happy to stay on for a extra fee to manage any style changes and touch-ups.

​We only work with experienced stylists, who have the technical skill and creativity to come up with the perfect two-in-one transformation for you. Just tap the link in our bio to learn more and get in touch!
