Modern Bridal Hairstyles
Wedding season is in full swing! Whether you're a bridesmaid or the lucky one saying "I do," figuring out how to wear your hair for the celebration is key. Wedding hairstyles have changed a lot over the years. The modern bride craves something cooler, something edgier and a lot less fussy than traditional bridal hair of the past. Here, some of our favorite modern bridal hairstyles to inspire you all wedding season long.
Modern Bridal Hair Idea: The Low Ponytail
While a traditional chignon may have been the ideal style in the past, a low wavy ponytail can help achieve more of that edgy vibe. We love a piece of hair wrapped around the base of the ponytail paired with wavy, teased out hair.
Modern Bridal Hair Idea: Crown Braid
For a boho twist on your bridal look, try a crown braid. Also known as the "halo braid," this ultra-feminine, half-up, half down look is both romantic and earthy. We love how it looks paired with a bohemian style wedding dress.
Modern Bridal Hair Style: Flowers in Bright Colors
Forget the notion that the flowers you wear should be white. Find bright florals that stand out and weave them into your hair. Fresh flowers are a timeless accessory that will brighten up your whole look.
Modern Wedding Hair Idea: Messy Bun
The undone bun look has become a staple of cool girls everywhere. For your wedding, polish it up a bit by using a glamorous hair accessory and securing with hairspray.
