Beach Wedding Hair Styles for Medium and Long Hair

You have more options for your beach wedding hair style if your hair is shoulder length or longer. You have the option to leave it loose if it is in a good enough condition (either blow-dried straight and smooth, or go for the tousled beach babe look) or try one of the tied styles below.

Just keep in mind that especially with long hair you might have to choose a second wedding hairstyle option if you see that it will be windy on the day of your wedding and having your hair loose might not be a practical option anymore.

But generally with beach wedding hair, texture is what you are looking for. That surfer girl, bed-head look is oh so sexy and romantic. And it is also relatively easy to create.
