Here are two fabulous wedding hairstyles for long hair that you can do yourself.

Really, it’s all one style, but you can stop half-way through and it’s gorgeous as is, or you can carry on with a couple of additional steps to turn it into a different style!

Tools and materials:

  • Hair comb
  • Small ponytail holder
  • Decorative hair clip
  • Bobby pins

1. Make a small half ponytail

With your hair in a center part, separate a small section from the front of your hair on each side.
