For him ...

Stylish Man Bun

If you’re looking to add a classy touch to your suit and tie, a polished man bun is in style for any special occasion. After getting your hair damp, comb your hair away from your face and add a small amount of styling product like American Crew Firm-Hold Styling Gel for some extra shine. Wrap your hair through an elastic until it feels secure, then pull your hair halfway through to complete the final look!  Read our blog post to learn how to maintain the perfect man bun.

The Pompadour

This classic hairstyle works perfectly for any formal look! To achieve a pompadour, start with clean, damp hair and apply a small amount of styling product like TIGI Bed Head Matte Separation Workable Wax. Use a blow dryer to add volume by lifting the front section upward and pushing it back with a comb. Continue shaping as you dry your hair to create a height and style perfect for you. Lock it in with some hairspray and celebrate your new look!

Fresh Buzzcut

If you’re a low-maintenance kind of guy, head into wedding season with a buzzcut! This look requires minimal styling while still giving that neat and formal appearance. From a crew cut to a fade, there are tons of different styles to choose from. If you're struggling to decide which buzzcut to rock at your next wedding, head to your local Great Clips salon and ask your stylist for tips on finding your perfect match!

For her ...

Perfectly Tousled Low Bun


Nothing is more romantic than a perfectly messy bun! To achieve this tousled style, pull your hair into a low bun at the nape of your neck, securing it with bobby pins. If you want to get that loose look, gently pull at the secured hair until it looks wispy and effortless. For added texture, ask your local Great Clips stylist to add a few face-framing pieces at your next salon visit!

Accessorized Half-Up


If you’re having trouble deciding between a classy updo or letting your hair down, a half-up style might be perfect for you. Start by separating your hair into two sections – one on top and one on the bottom. Secure the top section with an elastic and let the lower half flow down your back. From straight to curly hair, this style works for any hair type, and there are unlimited possibilities for elevating your look. Try adding an accessory or an eye-catching hair clip to stand out in the crowd!

Sleek and Straight


If your signature look is simple yet elegant, make it shine with this straightened style! All you need is a hair straightener to achieve this classic look. We recommend pairing it with an all-in-one heat protectant like the Solutions by Great Clips Glossing Multi-Task Cream. This will help keep your locks looking smooth, frizz-free, and gorgeous even after you hit the reception dance floor! Check out our blog for more tips for protecting your hair while heat styling.

Classy Ponytail


If you’re looking for love at your next wedding event, try this effortless, flirty hairstyle that only takes a few minutes to achieve! Next time you visit your local Great Clips salon, ask your stylist for long layers—this will give your hair plenty of bounce and movement when you throw it into a sleek pony. Try out the Solutions by Great Clips Texturizing Pomade to enhance this style! If you like the wispy look, pull out a few face-framing pieces to finish off your style, and don’t forget to accessorize!
