#1 The Simple Twist
We love the marriage of a done and undone hairstyle, and this simple twist encapsulates just that. To finish the look a beautiful hair accessory elevates the style, whilst a few loose strands gives the look a natural and relaxed look. This style suits both long and short hair, don’t you agree this style just looks stunning…
#2 The Half Up Side Braid
Braids are still one of our favorite wedding day hairstyles as there are virtually an endless amount of ways to style them! At the moment we’re crushing on this beautiful side braid which pulls back the hair slightly to frame the bride’s face, but isn’t a complete up do. The good thing about braids is that you can style them however you like best, so whether you want loose flowing locks or a tighter more formal look… their is most definitely something for you. (P.S We love these styles with flowers entwined within the hair!)
No matter what the season, one bridal hairstyle that will withstand the test of time is beautiful, bombshell curls. It’s relaxed and natural, yet undoubtedly sexy and glamorous. A big barrel curling iron and some volume will get you this beautiful bridal look. Ask your stylist to experiment around with different looks on your own hair, there are so many ways they can be worn. We love, love, love this floral crown paired with these curls!
#4 The Boho Undo…
If you’re looking for an up-do that feels a bit more relaxed but still has an elegant feel, try a low braided knot. We adore how even the smallest of hair accessory can add a touch of sparkle or glam to the look while the bride’s side braid gives the updo a soft, romantic feel.

#5 The Maiden Braid
For the bride wanting to mix up a half up half down hairstyle, try this center braid which meets in the middle. The result is a beautiful hairstyle fit for any bride, that’s sweet and slightly undone. The maiden braid also looks great when it is used in an up-do. Sophisticated and ever so stylish!
#6 The Sideswept Pin
A beautiful down hairstyle is always a classic look; to add some interest to this style try incorporating a beautiful hair clip or peice. Looking for a retro look? Incorporate your glamorous bird cage veil or statement hair piece within this timeless look. We love how this hairstyle highlights the bride’s face, and soft waves add some body and movement to the style.
#7 The Sophisticated Updo
If you are having a more formal affair then this style may be just what you are looking for. A formal updo like this sophisticated style… The hair is wrapped around in twists to create the updo, resulting in a visually interesting hairstyle that’s elegant and refined.
#8 The Tousled Updo
For an updo that’s loose and sexy, try a wavy tousled updo. Start by curling all of the hair, which will also add body to the style. Loosely pull the hair back, then leave a few strands to frame the face and add that touch of “undone” to the look. We love looks that naturally frame the face (as you can probably tell!)
#9 The Low Curled Updo
You can’t go wrong with a traditional style and a low curled updo is just that. A beautiful bridal hair accessory makes this hairstyle really pop, and provides a place to easily anchor a gorgeous wedding veil.
