Modern-day Grecian hairstyles are inspired by days-of-old images of Greek goddesses emanating femininity and beauty coupled with power and grace. Greek hairstyles range from polished and classical to loose and Bohemian. Decide if you want a formal style for your wedding or whether you prefer something more casual. There are many looks from which you can choose, but there are several classic styles to consider.

Updo

The classic Greek undo is perfect for many hair types and does not require long hair. Pull all the hair loosely back and secure at the top of the head, creating a lovely Boho look. Tie a ribbon around the head and wrap it around three times, beginning at the front of the head and ending at the back to complete the style. You may also choose to use a headband in place of the ribbon. For a lovely touch, add a few fresh flowers into the hair as accent pieces.

Loose

For a romantic and causal look, choose to leave your hair down for your wedding. Many images of Greek goddesses show women with long flowing locks of thick hair gently framing their faces. Add soft, loose waves or texturise your hair to obtain a sexy beach style. Keep the hair over the shoulders to frame your face.

Half-Up

For a soft, romantic wedding hairstyle, consider wearing your hair in a half-up do. The front of the hair is pulled back while the lower half of the hair is left loose and accented with whimsical curls. You can also choose to insert a bump at the top of the hair for a more formal version of the look. This style is simple to obtain and works with medium to long hair lengths.

Braided

There are many braided styles to choose from in the Grecian hair genre. Try a braided crown of hair at the top of the head for a regal, more formal look, or opt for something more casual by braiding the top part of the hair and leaving the bottom half loose and wavy. You may also choose to create a halo effect by braiding two small pieces of hair at the front of the head and securing them in back.

Bun

Buns were very popular in ancient Greece, as they are today. A traditional bun that accents the face is the twist. Take two strands of hair from the temples and begin twisting them, adding more hair as you move towards the back of the head. Once you reach your neck, twist the strands into a bun and secure with hair clips.
