The benefits of sew-in extensions are second-to-none when it comes to your big day and achieving the classic, elegant, funky or carefree bridal hairstyle you’ve always dreamed of.

Sew-in extensions are versatile and affordable. You can shape, prep and style them in any form or fashion to perfectly complement your own style on one of the most important days of your life. What’s more, they can be easily removed afterwards without damaging your natural locks. If you’re considering sew-in extensions for your wedding day, these are just a few of the possibilities for beautiful bridal hairstyles:  

1. The Bun and Braid Combo

Both classic and elegant, this sleek bun and braid combo is a modish go-to for your wedding day. Smooth and straightened hair extensions will allow you to achieve this look by sweeping your locks into a chic bun, perfectly framed by a wrap-around braid. The result is a put-together bridal look that will stay in place long into the night.

2. Luscious, Bouncy Shoulder Curls

If a loose, voluminous and bouncy design is more your style, sew-in hair extensions are the answer. Extensions look great when curled and slightly brushed out, with hair sprayed in place to achieve that full, luscious bridal look throughout your special day. You can also style the extensions with a glamourous side-parting to ensure your face is beautifully framed by your curls.

3. The Side-Swept Braid

The side-swept braid is one of the latest bridal hairstyles to take the world by storm, and it’s easily achievable with sew-in extensions. This romantic bridal look is ideal for summer weddings as your hair stays off your face and is kept in place all day. You can also incorporate a little glam with the adornment of embellished bobby pins or flowers throughout the braid.

4. The Classic Curl Chignon

Yet another bridal hairstyle that is unlikely to go out of fashion is the low-curl chignon bun. Effortlessly achieved with sew-in extensions, this hairstyle is great for showing off strong features and beautiful makeup and will stay in place from morning to night.

5. Long, Loose and Wavy

Another firm favourite in bridal hairstyles is the long, loose and wavy hairstyle, left to hang over the shoulders in a tousled, natural manner. With long, sew-in extensions your hair can be perfectly curled to create a natural beach wave which frames your face – it really doesn’t get more romantic and feminine than that!   

To prepare your natural hair for the introduction of a sew-in weave, experts recommend the salon-exclusive Mizani Bond pHorce treatment to strengthen your natural tresses before the installation process.
