Twisted Low Bun vs Braided Low Bun

Which style is best for your big day?

Calling all brides-to-be! Need a little inspiration for your wedding day hairdo? You've come to the right place. Read on for two swoon-worthy low bun hairstyles worth considering for your big day.


Real talk: You can't go wrong with a gorgeous low chignon on your wedding day. They're timeless, chic, and look oh-so sophisticated! But with so many variations of the style, it's not always easy to narrow down the best one to match your personality and gown. That's why we're here to help make your decision a little bit easier. Let the battle of the bridal styles commence-just in time for wedding season!

Twisted Low Bun

Are you a bride with a bold sense of style? If so, this striking hairstyle-a classic low bun with a retro-inspired addition of twisted hair-may be right for you.


To achieve the look at home, start by applying a volumizing mousse, like L'Oréal Professionnel Volume Envy Extra, through damp hair. Next, create a deep side part for added height. Gather all of your hair at the nape of your neck. Twist the length of hair in the same direction and wrap it around the base of the hair, pinning it in place with bobby pins. Finish by spraying your hair with L'Oréal Professionnel Infinium 3 Hairspray to help tame flyaways and lock in the style.

Braided Low Bun

Braids are a fan-favorite on the bridal hair scene and it's easy to understand why. Not only are they versatile enough to pair with a wide variety of bridal gowns, but they're inherently elegant and chic. This braided low bun is particularly unique because it starts with a braid and ends with a chic bun. Plus, the simple swept-back nature of the hairstyle means it could be paired with a range of accessories--be it a fine metallic headband or a jeweled clip. To play up the classic nature of this hairstyle, we recommend opting for natural, dewy makeup rather than anything too bold or striking.


Top tip: If either of these styles seem too complicated to achieve on the morning of your big day, don't fret! Book an appointment with a hair stylist who can complete your desired look for you with ease. It's also a smart idea to go for a trial run. That way, you won't have to stress about nailing your hairstyle without any professional help or deal with any surprises on the day of. Don't forget to bring screenshots of your favorite low bun creations as a source of inspiration!
