The Best Bridal Hairstyles for the Big Day

The Best Bridal Hairstyles for the Big Day

Posted by Team John Paul Mitchell Systems® on May 31st 2018

You’ve found the perfect dress. Now, it’s time to say “I do” to an equally memorable wedding hairstyle. We know the decision-making process of a bride-to-be can seem endless. We’re here to help. We searched through many ’gramworthy hairstyles and—though, admittedly hard to narrow down—pulled a few of our favorite wedding looks in the hope of making your quest for happily-ever-after hair easier.

A Modern Twist

Amp up the volume. Incorporate romantic loose French braids into your wedding hairstyle for a look that’s just as stunning in the back as it is in the front. A loosely braided wedding look will pair well with very in-style bohemian dress silhouettes. Opt for an effortless-looking half-up style or a charming braided twist on a traditional up-do.

The Perfect Wave

Perfect dress, meet the perfect wave. Somewhere in between worn-in tousles and regal ringlets lives the perfect wave. This timeless option can be tailored to flatter nearly every face shape and dress silhouette—from a captivating mermaid gown to a flirty and flouncy short stunner. Power up your favorite Neuro® smoothing iron and modernize a cascading wavy look with accessories—like a seasonal flower crown.

Bar-Raising Bun

Dress it up or mess it up, the classic bun is refreshingly versatile. Forever an elegant pick, and great for most face shapes, there’s a bun for every bride. A sleek, tightly tied bun will suit a slinky curve-hugging gown while a gorgeously undone ’do is ideal for a chic, boho bride. Keep your go-to look intact with Stay Strong hairspray.

A Marriage of Looks

A beautiful half-up hair style offers the best of both worlds. Ethereal waves? Check. Low-maintenance hair that won’t distract from post-ceremony dancing? Check. Whether reinforced by a loose series of braids, twists or a trendy top-knot, a half-up look offers a glamorous and non-restrictive option.
