When planning your wedding in the Cayman Islands, choosing the right hairstyle is essential. It would help if you had something weatherproof, comfortable, and stylish. Most brides go for updos. This is because they can often stand the humidity and the wind while keeping you looking fabulous in your wedding pictures.

The exact style of wedding hair you decide on will depend on some key factors. They include personal style, your wedding dress, and even your hair type. It would be best if you considered working with a professional stylist once you’re ready to decide on your hairstyle for the best results. However, some research in the meantime won’t hurt.

As Caribbean Wedding Coordinator Professionals here at Celebrations Ltd, we always want the best for our brides. Looking your best at your wedding is sure to make you feel your best, so we spoke to some of our favorite hair experts on some tips and tricks for your wedding day. Here are some tips from them concerning wedding hair and the most romantic Caribbean wedding updos.

Go for Something Protective

When you’re having a beach wedding in Cayman Islands, anything that tucks your ends away from the wind is a good idea. It will ensure that your hairs strands are not flying about during your ceremony, leaving you to concentrate on the moment with your love rather than the ticklish touch of your hair on your cheek! You also have the advantage of not worrying about your hair during the reception, allowing you to party the night away!

Make Use of a Large Accessory

Something Old Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue” 


A huge wedding trend that has followed into 2021 is large upscale head accessories. The accessories not only add a piece of sophistication but will also ensure your hairstyle is entirely one-of-a-kind style. Many brides will be gifted a special accessory from a loved one to be a part of their traditional borrowed or new! With a large brooch or pin, you can get a touch of elegance while your hair stays put.

Include a Crown Braid

Having a crown braid in front of your head will prevent your hair from constantly being in your face while adding an extra complementing feature to your look. That way, your photographer can capture your lovely expressions as you and your partner make your relationship official.   You’ll also be more comfortable and feel the need to be playing with your hairless!

We recommend connecting with your stylists to try different types of crown braids to see what style suits you the best.

Make It Sleek and Slick

Changing to a more relaxing and subtle look by adding a few simple pins in your hair is sleek and slick. When deciding on this style, we recommend sealing the look with a good finishing spray once you have your hair pinned and ready to go. It’ll make your hair look sleek while keeping the humidity away. This option is easy to maintain too.

Wavy Strands Are the Best

Another gorgeous style that is simple and polished is a lovely wavy flow. A curly perm or some beautiful spirals will bounce around in the Cayman Islands sea breeze. It will also catch humidity and drop after a while, creating a nice simple wavy look as your night continues. Going for waves will ensure that your strands remain gorgeous as the day goes on. They’ll also conceal any sweat pooling at your roots.

Now that we have those sorted out, what hairstyles should you decide on? Here is our list of some of the most romantic Caribbean wedding updos we’ve seen on our brides.

The Side Part

The side part is a style that is perfect for any hair texture or length. It is also easy to do and can make you look romantic, feminine, and chic.

This beautiful style can be combined with soft, natural makeup look or rock it out with a jaw-dropping transformation! With this style, you truly can do wonders. Spend your entire wedding day looking like the best version of yourself.

Front Braiding

As mentioned earlier, braiding your hair in front is excellent for a Cayman Islands wedding. If you’re rocking short hair, front braiding will make you look gorgeous while framing your face and giving your hair a unique textured look for your special day. Our brides find this one a fun hairstyle to create as it’s easy to complete, and your hair will stay off your face!

The Pinned Updo

Another fantastic style for short hair is a beautiful Pinned Updo. Pinning your hair will give you a soft, feminine, and romantic look; no matter what angle your photo is being taken from, a gorgeous different image will always be produced!

The Messy Bun

Caribbean brides with medium-length hair will love the messy bun. It is especially perfect if you’re having a relaxed and informal wedding. Wedding gowns with a short hemline look even better with this type of hairstyle. Brides with the messy bun hairdo always look stunning in their wedding pictures.

The Elegant Low Chignon

If you have long hair, the elegant low chignon would be just perfect for you. It is a classic that will have you looking romantic and gorgeous especially matched with a simple, sleek mermaid dress. You can also add some accessories or braids to make it a bit more unique.

The Glamorous Ponytail

Ponytails are the most glamorous and romantic Caribbean wedding hairstyles you can decide on. They show off your lovely hair in the back and your beautiful face in the front. You also won’t have to worry about your hair whipping in your face during your celebration and ensure it keeps you cool on your special day.

At a Cayman Islands wedding, you can’t go wrong with a sleek ponytail with a middle part. However, if you already have something else lined up, you can delegate this style to your bridesmaids. The results would be sure to turn a few heads and make your wedding that much more electric.
