A voluminous pony with dramatic face-framing pieces is the perfect look for a 2023 wedding, especially if you are an evening guest. Why not give your pony a boost with our 16” Medium Flicky Clip-in Ponytail?

A sleek and wavy low pony is the epitome of elegance, suitable for any type of wedding guest, aesthetic or face shape. Extend the grace you’re already exuding with our 20” Bounce Wrap Ponytail!

Wedding guest bun hairstyles

Whether it’s messy or meticulously put into place, buns are perfect for any occasion… especially hot summer weddings.

A slicked-back, tidy bun can make any look sophisticated and put together, without a trip to the hairdresser’s - perfect for a more formal wedding! Why not give your bun some extra volume with our Super Easy Clip-in Mum Bun?

A messy bun can look effortlessly put together, especially by adding some additional texture, like curls. This style will keep your hair out your way for a hot, outdoor wedding or getting sweaty on the dancefloor. Go big or go home with our Curly Messy Bun Scrunchie!

Wedding guest braided hairstyles

Plaits and braids are making a huge comeback, especially for the 2023 wedding season. Embrace your inner boho chic this summer!

This braid is perfect for the 2023 wedding season. The twists and loops give extra dimension, elevating from Dutch braid to boho, fairy princess. Create this long, twisted braid by adding additional length, with our 20” Wand Wave One Piece Clip-in Extensions.

Keep it plaited back but mature this wedding season with a fishtail. Fishtail braids are a classic way to include braids, without looking like a schoolgirl. Enhance and thicken your plait with our 16” Straight One Piece Clip-in Extensions.

Wedding guest half-up hairstyles

Not ready to commit to a complete updo this 2023 wedding season? If you’re more comfortable with your hair down, but want to add a style to the summer heat, consider a half-up hairdo!

Claw clips are the biggest hair accessory trend of 2023, and we’re bringing them into the wedding season. Tiny claw clips are an effortless way to pinch your hair up and keep it out of the way. Add length to your half-up with our pre-styled 20” Curly One Piece Clip-in Extensions!

Ballerina buns in a half-up are a gorgeous way to add elegance and volume, whilst keeping your hair out of your face this 2023 wedding season. This style is also perfect for fascinators and hats! Add our bestseller, the 20” Flicky One Piece Clip-in Extensions, to extend your half-down length.
