When wedding season approaches, there’s a reason why “mother of the bride hairstyles” is one of the biggest searches on the internet; after all, when it’s your daughter’s turn to say “yes”, after choosing a magnificent dress to accompany her through this journey there’s another important thing to think about: how to wear your hair.


There are many different wedding hairstyles for both the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom of course! For this article, I’ve selected 10 of the most gorgeous wedding hair that can be recreated with different hair types. Do I have your attention? This is 10 Elegant Hairstyles For The Mother Of The Bride - read on to get ready for yet another wedding day!

Mother Of The Bride: Hairstyles For Long Hair

When talking about long hair, it’s pretty easy to think of many different hairstyles to play with. For a mother who wears her hair long, here’s three stunning options to style your mane appropriately for your daughter’s big day.

Half Up, Half Down

The half up, half down hairstyle is a timeless classic. You can wear it straight and sleek, perhaps adding a jewel pin at the back to add a touch of light and class to a minimalistic hairstyle; or you can grab your curling iron and add ringlets to it for a youthful, fresh finish.

Either way, if you’re lacking volume, adding subtle clip-in hair extensions will help you achieve depth and dimension without missing out on the simplicity of this hairstyle.

Crown Braid

This is a popular hairstyle for every age, really. I personally like it a lot, therefore if you’ve been reading my blogs for a while, you will often find the words “crown braid” whenever I recommend a hairstyle. Versatile, romantic and even a little quirky - this hairstyle never fails.

Oh, and did I mention it’s also a protective hairstyle? Yes, the crown braid tucks in your ends, sparing them from the wedding party stress.

Low Chignon

A classic for formal events, the low chignon never really lost its appeal. This hairstyle can be worn as it is, shiny and minimal, or embellished with hair jewellery or flowers - the choice is yours. In case your hair lacks the right volume to get the perfectly round chignon, you can look into adding volume and length with Seamless Hair Extensions - no one will know.

Mother Of The Bride: Hairstyles For Medium Hair

Medium length hair is the perfect combination between comfort and styling opportunities, in my honest opinion. When it comes to formal hairstyles, they still offer a lot of fun - and if you’re looking to recreate a hairstyle you’d need more length for, you can always opt for clip-in human hair extensions for a quick makeover without commitment!

Messy Bun

An evergreen hairstyle seen everywhere whenever the occasion is formal is the infamous messy bun. Low or high, that doesn’t matter; in case of emergency, a messy bun with added ringlets or flowy tendrils is the perfect go-to hairstyle. You can accessorise it or keep it simple, you can wear it with straight or curly hair, and most importantly: it will never cease being popular!

Loose Waves

If you usually wear your hair in a shoulder length long bob, then adding something as simple yet elegant as soft waves on your tresses can go a long, long way (no pun intended). You should also consider adding hair extensions to blend in gorgeous Hollywood waves, a huge trend this year.

Bouncy Blow Dry 

The iconic Bouncy Blow-dry is by far the most requested style for mothers of the brides. Regardless of the hair length, this style is gifted with timeless glamour and elegance and complements any outfit. To add even more volume or length, add a set of Seamless Clip-In hair extensions.

Mother Of The Bride: Hairstyles For Short Hair

If you’re a fan of short hairstyles - such as bixie, pixie or a bob haircut - you may think it will be difficult to change your look for a special occasion. Don’t worry, there’s no such a thing; in fact, short hair can be quite flexible too when it comes to styling!  Check out our blog if you want to know "how to add hair extensions for short hairwhere we break down the key points. 

Short & Textured

This blow-dry for short hair is all about creating a frizz-free mane even on short hair, resulting in a polished, halo-like effect. This choice is very popular in women that are struggling with thinning hair and don't feel safe in using styling techniques that involve hot tools such as curling wands and irons.

Slicked Back

This may seem like a bold look, perhaps even too edgy - but trust me, with the right dress and accessories, this simple yet elegant hairstyle will highlight your features and style with its minimalistic style. They say less is more, and with this effective, edgy hairstyle, you’re guaranteed to look just amazing. Achieve this beautiful hairstyle with our 16" Classic Full Head Hair Extensions to add volume to fine hair. 


If you have a side-parted or middle-parted bob, you may want to go on a jewel barrettes frenzy, similar to what Emma Watson was wearing at this year’s BAFTA ceremony. This forgotten 90s trend can be reinvented with the aid of the right hair accessories, to look stylish and sophisticated without stealing the scene from the bride.

Transforming Short Hair With Tape-in Hair Extensions

Did you know that even with a haircut such as a pixie or a bixie, having long hair for a day (or more) isn't as impossible as you may think?

With tape-in hair extensions, even the shortest hair can get transformed. And they not only are kind to your hair but can also last between 4 to 8 weeks - giving you all the time to grow out your natural mane in the meantime.
