10 Beautiful & Sleek Low-Bun Hairstyles for Your Wedding
Whether you wear it with a veil, a pretty accessory, flowers, or simple and unadorned, a sleek low bun is the perfect way to add a touch of elegance to your wedding day look.
Here are 10 low bun wedding hairstyles perfect for your big day, all created by the Make Me Bridal pros!
Tight Low Bun
Try a tight low bun with a middle parting for a clean and contemporary look. To keep it super sleek and shiny, a flat iron and glossy styling products are used to smooth out any flyaways. This style is perfect for a more modern bride who wants a seamless, pulled-back style.
Swept-Back Low Bun
If you’re looking for a softer take on the low bun that shows off your natural texture but still keeps hair off your face, opt for a more swept-back style. This look really shows off the bride’s highlights!
Braided Low Bun Hairstyle
There's no better way to add texture and interest to your low bun than by using a braided element. There are lots of ways to incorporate a braid into your bun – here, a few strategically placed braid pieces add a romantic touch.
Classical Overlap Low Bun
Another way to add texture and volume to your low bun is having your styling overlap strands of hair above the bun. The effect is classic but striking.
Classic Balerina Low Bun
The classic ballerina bun is an elegant and understated choice for brides - the perfect balance of sophistication and simplicity. It can be dressed with a few sparkling clips or a simple ribbon, and a few curls or strands around the face will soften the look.
A Low Bun with Accessories
If you think a low bun might be too simple for your big day bridal style, remember it’s all about the accessories! There are so many ways to transform and elevate this look. Above, a sparkly hairpiece is tucked into a low bun for a regal feel that would pair well with a veil.
Low Bun with Flowers
For a romantic and feminine touch, add some faux flowers to your low bun wedding hairstyle. This style is perfect for adding a bit of whimsy to your big-day look.
Low Bun for Asian Brides
For Asian brides, a low bun with a sleek middle parting makes an excellent base for traditional jewellery. To create this style, part your hair down the middle and pull the sides into a low bun at the nape of your neck.
Simple Low Bun
One of the joys of a low bun bridal hairstyle is its simplicity, but that doesn’t mean you must keep it minimalist. There are lots of gorgeous, intricate low-bun hairstyles that will be super eye-catching, especially if you decide not to wear a veil or have a simple gown to contrast it with.
Full Voluminous Low Bun
For full-scale glamour, opt for a more voluminous low bun. This is perfect if you have a lot of natural length and volume, but extensions can also be used to pull it off.
