Hot Holiday Hairstyle: Braids

Kate and Garrett were recently married at Fearrington Village. Makeup for Your Day makeup artist and stylist Danielle had Kate looking stunning for her wedding day. After her beautiful bridal portraits (courtesy of Krystal Kast Photography), Kate was confident that her hair and makeup would be perfect for the big day.

We have been inspired by Kate’s braided hairstyle and foreseeing it as a hot holiday hairstyle. This trendy style can be worn in a number of ways that work well on a variety of hair textures and lengths.

If you have long enough hair, doing a wrap-around braid looks amazing. You can wrap the braid into a low bun or a higher updo. It’s feminine but chic and can be both formal and casual. This is an absolutely stunning bridal hairstyle. It can be worn alone or with some great bridal accessories perfect for any type of wedding.

The classic side-braid has made a triumphant return. This look is usually less formal than a wrap-around braid that is worked into an updo or low bun. It is a more undone look that is casual. Take a page from Blake Lively’s hair stylist by pulling your hair into a sleek high-pony and then braid your hair. We love the contrast of the sleek pony and the teased braid so it looks elegant, but not completely polished. It makes the look more youthful. 

Will you being trying this hot hairstyle this holiday season? If you are looking for inspiration for other sorts of hairstyles to debut at holiday parties check out our Facebook page. We are always inspired by our brides!
Congrats to Kate and Garrett, the newlyweds, we had an amazing time working with you on your wedding day.
