5 Ways to Wear Your Hair on Your Wedding Day (If You Have a Nose Ring)

Are you wondering how to show off your nose ring while walking down the aisle on your special day? There are several options available to ensure you look great and flatter your face. Follow these five tips to find the perfect wedding day hairstyle - be it timeless, classic or modern. Your nose piercing will look great and you'll feel ready to take the big step.

1) The Low Ponytail

The low ponytail is the perfect style for brides with piercings, as it will show off the beauty of your piercing without being too revealing. To create this look, start by gathering all of your hair into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. Secure the ponytail with a strong elastic band. Once your hair is in place, you can use a comb to slick down any flyaway hairs. 

For extra style, you can curl or crimp the ends of your hair before securing them in the ponytail. To complete the look, you can add a few strategically placed bobby pins around the base of the ponytail and spray with a light-hold hairspray. This is an elegant look that will still allow you to show off your nose ring on your special day.

2) The High Ponytail

The high ponytail is a classic style that looks great with or without a nose ring. For brides with a piercing, the high ponytail is a great way to show off your accessory while still keeping it classy and elegant. The key to pulling off this look is to make sure your hair is sleek and well-groomed. Start by brushing your hair back into a tight ponytail at the crown of your head. Secure the ponytail with an elastic band and then use a few bobby pins to keep any stray hairs in place. 

Once your ponytail is secured, you can start to style it. If you want to add a bit of volume and texture to your look, you can use a teasing comb to lightly backcomb the hair near the roots. Alternatively, you can wrap small sections of hair around the base of the ponytail for a more polished look. Finally, spray your style with a light-hold hairspray to keep everything in place. 

Whether you have a nose ring or not, the high ponytail is a timeless and chic style that will take you from ceremony to reception in style!

3) The updo

On your special day, make a statement with an updo, one of the most stylish hairdos for brides with nose piercings. Start by pulling your hair up into a high ponytail at the crown and secure with a hair tie and bobby pins. 

To make it look polished, curl the strands with a curling iron or hot rollers, then tuck and pin small, loose curls all over the top of your head. For added hold, spritz on some hairspray. For an added touch of glamor, embellish with some floral pieces or barrettes. With or without the piercing, this stunning updo is sure to turn heads!

4) The half-up, half-down

If you’re looking for a classic, elegant style to show off your piercing on your wedding day, the half-up, half-down look may be the perfect choice. This hairstyle can be achieved by simply gathering a portion of your hair up into a ponytail or bun at the crown of your head, while leaving the rest of your locks flowing freely. If you’re feeling extra creative, you can add small braids, twists, or hair accessories to this style as well.

To ensure that your nose ring stands out in this style, you should choose to gather the upper portion of your hair so that the lower portion of your locks frames your face. That way, when you turn your head and the light catches your face, your piercing will really shine. To finish the look, consider using a bit of hairspray or product to help keep all of the pieces of hair in place and give your locks a little extra shine and hold. 

No matter what hairstyle you choose for your special day, make sure that it reflects your own unique sense of style and personality. With a bit of creativity and a lot of love, you can achieve the perfect look that makes you feel like the beautiful bride you are!

5) The braid

Braids provide an effortless yet sophisticated style for any occasion, with the nose ring being a delightful accompaniment. A French braid, Dutch braid, fishtail braid, or any other appropriate type of braid, works to your advantage and showcases your personal style. Enhancing your braid with clips, a comb, or a flower crown adds an additional glamor. Or, wrapping a thin strand of hair around your braid gives a sophisticated finish.

For a more casual, less done-up look, opt for a half-up braid or a messier style with strands of hair framing your face. If you want to capture a romantic aura, incorporate pieces of flowers or ribbons into your braid. To ensure your braid stays intact throughout the night, make use of strong-hold hairspray and suitable styling products. Your braid will be in perfect condition when you’re ready to remove it.
