See elegant braided, bun, and other swept-up hairstyles from real brides.
Your choice of bridal hairstyles are vast: there have been so many new trends developing in the past few decades that combine innovative and classic style techniques any bride would be thrilled with. Perhaps the most romantic choice in hairstyle is the updo – it helps to structure your hair to frame your face just so, and it provides you with plenty of opportunities to accessorize. We absolutely love a classic knot, bun, or braided cluster on a bride as these hairstyles show off just a little bit more of the woman’s creativity and personal taste.
Updos can work well for a wedding in any season and have been a bridal favorite for years. If you’re considering implementing a sophisticated updo for your wedding-day look, browse through some of our favorites to get ideas or to show to your stylist during your hair trial. We’ve selected nine different designs at which to marvel. Click each photo to get more inspiration from each wedding or styled shoot!
