Bridal Hairstyles: Embracing Versatility with Wigs


Weddings are a magical affair, and as a bride, you deserve to look and feel your absolute best on your special day. When it comes to your wedding hairstyle, there are countless options to choose from. Bridal hairstyles have evolved over time, and one of the popular choices are bridal wigs.  Wedding wigs for brides are highly versatile, and allow brides to experiment with different looks effortlessly. In this blog post, we will explore the world of wedding wig hairstyles, and how to ensure your hair – whether a wedding hair wig, or your own natural hair – looks spectacular on your wedding day.

The Rise of Wedding Wig Hairstyles

Traditionally, brides relied on their natural (bio) hair to create stunning hairstyles for their wedding day. However, with the advent of wigs, brides now have a wider range of options to explore. Wedding wig hairstyles have gained popularity for their convenience, versatility, and ability to effortlessly transform a bride's appearance. Whether you desire long, flowing locks or an elegant updo, wigs for weddings offer endless possibilities.

The Perfect Wig for Your Wedding

Finding the right wedding wigs can be a daunting task, but with proper guidance, you can discover the perfect match for your big day. Bridal wigs come in a plethora of styles, lengths, and textures to suit every bride's preferences. Whether you envision a classic bridal updo or dream of cascading waves, there is a wig wedding hairstyle that will make you feel like a true princess.

To ensure a seamless and natural look with your wedding hair wig, follow these tips:

  • Proper Wig Selection: 
    When choosing a wedding hair wig, consider factors such as the style, color, and length that best complement your facial features and wedding dress. It's advisable to try on different wig styles in advance to find the perfect match for your desired look.  You may want to choose a wig that closely matches your natural hair color and texture for a more realistic appearance – or experiment with a completely new glamorous look that completes the bridal look you are trying to achieve. 
  • Secure Wig Fit: 
    Before styling your wig, ensure it is properly secured to prevent any shifting or discomfort. Use a secure method, such as Milano’s WiGrip, GripCap, or TopGrip,  to discreetly and comfortably ensure your wig stays in place all day long, allowing you to dance and celebrate without worry.
  • Wig Care: 
    Once you have your wig, keep it well stored, and in great condition for the big event.  Use a mannequin head, or wig holder, to preserve its shape and longevity, and ensure that it remains in pristine condition for your wedding day and future use.
  • Professional Wig Hair Services:  
    Consult with a professional hairstylist experienced in working with wigs. They can personalize and style your wig to suit your desired bridal look, ensuring it complements your facial features and overall aesthetic.   That may also include color services such as highlights or lowlights, balayage, money pieces, as well as cutting services that may include face framing, bangs, or layering. 

Achieving Your Ideal Wedding Day Hairstyle:

Once you have your wig, or even if you choose to style your natural hair, deciding what style you wish to wear your hair in is a big choice – as big as choosing your wedding gown.  After all, your hair is your crowning glory, and you want to look your best on this very special day.  

Va Va Voom Volume:

On your wedding day, your stylist will work their magic which may include creating a voluminous hairstyle, which many brides prefer. One of the best wigs for wedding day and other events is the Milano U-Topper.  It is ideal for achieving greater fullness and volume, something many brides crave for their special day.  Incorporating this U Shape alternative hair into your hairstyle will create a glamorous and voluminous look on top, crown and back. The Milano U Shape Topper, also known as the U Part Topper, is designed in a way to be virtually undetectable and gives volume by the crown and high up on the head, which typical extensions cannot do. There are several styling tips and techniques that can be used together with the U Shape Topper by Milano or another wedding wig of your choice, or your own natural hair, to get that gorgeous, voluminous bridal look. 

  • Blow-drying Technique: 
    Start by applying a volumizing mousse to your damp hair. Flip your head upside down and blow-dry the roots using a round brush. This technique lifts the hair at the roots and creates volume. Root Lifting Sprays or Mousses can be applied at the roots to provide lift and body and create volume. Apply them to damp hair before blow drying for best results.
  • Teasing and Backcombing Technique: 
    Divide your hair into sections and tease the roots lightly using a fine-toothed comb. Gently backcomb the hair near the crown area to create additional lift and volume. 

Updo Wigs for Elegance and Ease:

Updo wigs for weddings are another perennial favorite for brides everywhere.  They offer a sophisticated and refined look, while also providing convenience and ease of styling. In addition to the U-Shape Topper, Divine Wigs and Toppers and Ponytail Wigs by Milano are a great choice, as they are lower density and more easily used to create stunning updos without the need for hours of hairstyling. Whether you desire a chic bun, a braided updo, or an intricate chignon, updo wigs ensure a flawless hairstyle that will last throughout your special day.  


Hair Accessories for that Special Touch: 

Your wedding day is the perfect time to accessorize your wedding wig with elegant hairpieces, such as crystal-encrusted clips, delicate headbands, or fresh flower crowns. These accessories can add a touch of romance and elevate your bridal hairstyle.

To ensure a perfect wig experience on your wedding day, keep these tips in mind:

  • Wig Trial: 
    Schedule a wig trial before your wedding day to ensure the wig fits comfortably and securely. This will allow you to address any fit or comfort issues beforehand and make necessary adjustments.
  • Handling and Touch-ups: 
    Be mindful of how you handle your wig throughout the day. Avoid excessive touching or tugging, as this can cause the wig to shift or become dislodged. Keep a small styling kit handy for quick touch-ups if needed.
  • Emergency Kit: 
    Prepare an emergency kit containing extra wig clips, bobby pins, and a small comb or brush to address any unforeseen mishaps. Having these essentials within reach will provide peace of mind, knowing you can quickly fix any minor issues that may arise.

Maintaining Your Wedding Hairstyle Throughout the Day:

  • Opt for a lightweight, flexible hold hairspray
    that provides long lasting volume without making your hair stiff or crunchy. Spray it on your finished style to lock in lasting volume and hold throughout the day.
  • For extra security, use bobby pins
    to secure sections of your hairstyle, and maintain volume while preventing your hair from falling flat. Place the pins discreetly to keep the structure intact without compromising the overall look.


When it comes to bridal hairstyles, wedding wig hairstyles have revolutionized the way brides can experiment and transform their appearance, offering convenience and versatility. 

Whether you choose to embrace the versatility of wigs or showcase your natural hair, the key to achieving beautiful bridal hair lies in proper preparation, professional assistance, and selecting the right accessories. Your wedding day is a celebration of love, joy, and the start of a beautiful journey. Embrace the freedom to explore different bridal hairstyles and find the perfect look that makes you feel like the radiant bride you are.
