Be the most beautiful bride in Nigeria with one of these hairstyles
Finding a perfect bridal hairstyle for yourself can be rather difficult, given the amount of options you can choose from. Therefore, we want to give you a hand in this complicated task and offer you 15 ways of how to style bridal hair. Find the one you like and take it to your hairstylist!
As not everyone wants to go for a stiff-looking low bun with an intricate design and lots of accessories (not that there is anything wrong with such a hairstyle), we have decided to offer you something a little different. Our wonderful picks of bridal hairstyles are divided into three categories. Here, you can find bridal hair ideas for short, medium-length and long hair alike. Find the perfect hairstyle for you!
Short bridal hairstyles Nigeria
Sometimes, you do not want to wear extensions or wigs to your own wedding, and that is ok. You can simply put on a headband and look beautiful. To make it more fascinating, you can use the headband to attach your veil, or you can add a bow to it. Whatever you choose, we know you will look stunning.
Another way you can look bridal without putting too much effort (and money) into your hair is by adding some lovely flowers. You can choose some decorative ones or even go for real flowers if you know that they will stay fresh throughout the whole event. So just brush your hair out, stick some flowers into it, and you have yourself a bridal hairstyle 🙂
If you combine our first and second advice, you can end up with another lovely hairstyle for your wedding. It is a simple yet elegant way to look bridal without torturing your hair (and yourself) for hours on end. You can go for this no matter how long or short your hair is.
As you might have guessed, when you are dealing with short hair and an aversion to fancy constructions on your head, accessories should become your best friend. See how you can make your hair more bridal just by adding a small brooch. This way, your regular twistout can look very special and lovely.
If you have a little bit more hair to work with, you can grab a headband that goes all the way around your head and do a very simple roll and tuck updo, so that your hair does not bother you during your important moment.
Medium-length bridal hair Nigeria
We want to open our bridal hair gallery of styles for medium-length hair with this simple yet stylish do. It is just a high twisted bun adorned with a cute little brooch at the front. For this hairstyle, you most likely will not even need a hairstylist, as you can probably do this yourself.
For something a bit fancier, you can go for a similar hairstyle but let your bangs free. It seems to be such a minor detail, and yet it makes so much difference. You can also exchange the brooch for the tiara/crown and show everyone who the real royalty is.
If you are going for a softer look, you can just braid your hair at the front, gather it a little at the back, add hair accessories, and you are ready to go to the altar! As they say, sometimes less is more, so you do not have to spend hours getting your hair done in order to look lovely.

That said, if you want something a bit fancier, you could make a little pompadour at the top of your head and let the rest fall free or secure it with a large brooch. This hairstyle is both beautiful and practical, as no hair will get in your face at the most inopportune moment. Besides, it does not have to be perfectly slick to look good.
Who said that dreadlocks cannot not make a great wedding hairstyle? As long as you feel confident in yourself and your fierceness, you can pull this look off just by gathering the locks at the back of your head and adding some hair accessories. This way, you will look great and feel comfortable, as nothing will pull at your hair or put any extra strain on it.
Ideas for long bridal hair in Nigeria
While we are on the subject of dreadlocks, if yours are too long for the previous style, you can always gather them in an elegant bun at the top of your head. You can also turn some of them into braided bangs and secure the whole thing with a cute bedazzled brooch.
You can go about the similar way with your twist braids. Only in this case, it is a low bun and a side wave. It is a great choice if you already have your hair up in twists and you do not want to untwist it. Silky smooth twist braids work particularly well with this hairdo, as they look as if they are flowing that way naturally.
If your hair is in microbraids, you can also turn it into a stunning bridal hairstyle. You can just pin it at the back in several places, attach a brooch or a veil, and you are good to go! The texture of the braids will add dimension to your face, and your hair will not be as damaged by this hairstyle as it could have been by other popular ‘dos.
Sometimes you just want your hair to be nice and smooth, and we get that. A perfect way to showcase your hair like that without it getting absolutely everywhere is to gather it in a low-hanging bun and add a little hair accessory to it.
Last, but certainly not least, if you have beautiful long curly natural hair, why should you tuck it in or twist it into weird shapes? Wear it out and proud, let it be the centrepiece of your wedding outfit. To avoid your hair getting in your face, you can try pinning back a few strands at the front and adding some accessories to hold it in place.
