  3. The beehive was popular in the 60s for long hair wedding styles and has become very fashionable again recently. The hair is backcombed and teased to create lots of volume and pinned in place. The modern take on the bee hive is a little more petite and sleeker than the 60s version.

  4. If you want to leave your hair down in a simple romantic style you can't go wrong with soft curls, they are very pretty and you can add a tiara to finish the look.

  5. If you can't decide whether you want your hair down or in an updo then why not pick a half up half down style. Some of the hair is usually gathered at the back and pinned. It is a little more controlled than having all your hair down but will still feel loose and flowing. It looks extra special with single flowers woven through.

  6. For the vintage bride wanting to channel 40s and 50s glamour, pin curls, loops and rolls are perfect. There are lots of vintage wedding hairstyles for long hair, for a truly vintage hairstyle pick a stylist who specializes in vintage hair and make-up.

  8. A side bun is quirky take on the formal bun. The hair is swept to one side and then gathered at the side of the head. You can enhance this style with few hair flowers pinned into the bun or a diamanté hair clip.
