Do you have straight hair? If so, then a simple medium wedding hairstyle idea is to wear your hair straight down for your big day. It’s an effortless look that will look perfect for an outdoor or rustic wedding.

It will look even more elegant if you wear it with a bridal vine crown or a flower crown that comes with the veil attached. Part the hair on the side and add some shine spray to make it stand out even more; it will give it a sleek and glossy look.

Bridal French Twist/ French Roll


A spectacular wedding hairstyle is the bridal french twist. Not only is it one of the most formal hairstyles for brides, but it is also a very stylish hairstyle. It can be super sleek and elegant or it can be super messy with a few waves hanging from the sides. It can also be combined with a messy chignon.

As you can see, there are many ways of creating a French Twist Updo, and it can be as neat or as messy as you would like it to be. You can add extra glam to this hairstyle by adding an embellished headpiece to make it further stand out without going overboard.

Half Up Half Down


Another beautiful wedding hair option for medium-length hair includes the Half Up Half Down hairdos. You can easily recreate these hairstyles by taking a chunk of each side of your hair, twist them, and clip them together with a wedding hair clip or bobby pin.

You can also take both strands from each side of your hair, braid them and then unite them together with a wedding headpiece while the rest of your hair is flowing down freely. This is more of a messy, natural look and perfect for a relaxed wedding.

Low Bun


This is another casual and comfy hairstyle for brides with medium-length hair. You can recreate this style in so many different ways. It can be super sleek or super messy. Roll your hair into a low bun and pull out some strands of hair that flow freely around your face.

This minimalist look is perfect for laid-back brides who want a casual wedding. You can also attach a shiny headpiece that’ll make your low bun hairstyle stand out even more. The low bun is also a great hairstyle for your bridesmaids to look uniform!

Top Knot Bun


This is almost the same as the low bun hairstyle. The only difference is that with this hairstyle the bun sits on the top of the head. Again, this can be a tight sleek bun or a super messy bun with some strands of hair hanging on the sides of your face. 

Braided Bun


Similar to the low bun idea, this chic wedding hairstyle is easy to recreate. You can begin by tying your hair into a ponytail and then braid your ponytail.

Next, make a hole in the part of your hair above the ponytail and fold the braided ponytail through the hole. Then hold the braid into place by placing bobby pins on the sides of your bun. 


The Sculpted Bun Mohawk


The Sculpted Bun Mohawk is a creative updo and perfect for textured hair. Start by creating a few mini buns throughout your hair: a top bun, a middle bun, and a low bun. And make sure that they are all next to each other so it can look like they are connected.

Next, pull on each bun to add fluff and volume to your hair. You can create as many mini buns as your hair allows, but make sure that all of your hair is tied up into buns with no strands sticking out so that you can get the perfect sculpted hair look that you want for your wedding day.

Loose Wavy Lob


You can also opt for a loose wavy lob hairstyle. Although it is a simple look, it is a good choice for a super chill wedding. It is very easy to style, which means that you can do it yourself and save money. Consider adding a hairpiece to make it stand out a bit more.
