10 Stunning Wedding Hairstyles for Medium Hair

Updated 12/12/17

Medium-length hair hits that perfect sweet spot between having enough hair to style it different ways and short enough length that doesn't have the same intense upkeep long hair has. With wedding season in full swing, we want to give our medium-haired sisters plenty of options, whether they're the ones walking down the aisle or just participating in the fun festivities. 

From cute updos to a fro that will and deservedly take center stage, we've rounded up our favorite wedding hairstyles for medium hair. Who did we turn for this inspo? Our favorite celebrities of course. Click through to our picks.

Make a top bun less structured by leaving out a few wisps of hair near your ears like Chrissy Teigen's done here. It gives off that effortless but still put together vibe we all try to achieve on a daily basis.

Hair clips are not just for the pre-teen set. They're perfect to dress up your hairstyle when you don't want to actually style it.

Make a normal ponytail more romantic by curling your strands like model Jasmine Tookes.

Half-updos are great if you want to keep your hair out of your face but still keep the length. We're obsessed with this look from the Atelier Eme show; the braided crown is just so pretty.

A low chignon is immediately elevated with a big hair accessory like this jeweled arrow on Clare Danes.

If you've got natural curl #goals, we know you're going to want them to be the center of your beauty look. Give them extra volume, like Zendaya here, because with curls, bigger is always better.

We've come to find that it's not a wedding without braids; the style is romantic, and anyone can pull them off. Take a cue from the Victorio e Lucchino show in Barcelona where this model sports a low pony put to the side in a mermaid braid and dressed up in fun hair accessories.

Sleek, straight hair is extremely chic. Part it down the middle, like Kerry Washington here, to give off a very polished vibe.

Will we ever tire of loose waves? The short answer: no. Like Priyanka Chopra, curl your hair to give it extra volume and part it on your favorite side to really define the shape of your face.

An easy and pulled-together look is a low bun. To make it less casual (aka not something you put together as if you're running an errand), make sure you tie up all your hair and wrap the bun really tightly.
