A bride’s hairstyle can set the tone for her entire look.  Whether it’s sleek and shiny or “messy” and relaxed, it helps the wedding guests understand what the bride is thinking as far as the mood of the wedding events.

Check out my article that is a companion to this one called “Bridal Hair Accessories to Complete Your Look” here!

1. Accessorized Braids

Bridal braids are a way to add style to your bridal look and they continue to grow increasingly more popular. Whether you prefer modern and romantic or boho chic, finding your own style of braid can elevate a simple look.

2. Classic, Chic Bun

Many über-sophisticated, high-fashion brides are opting for a clean, chic bun that has minimal volume and allows the makeup and dress to speak for her.

3. Long, Soft, and Minimal

Flawlessly flowing locks are also in style this year. This polished yet soft look has delicate movement with expertly placed waves and is the best choice for brides who want a timeless look that isn’t a traditional updo.

4. Loose Chignon with Accessory

Loose Chignon with Accessory

Loose chignons, elevated with eye-catching hair accessories are also trending in 2019. A great hair accessory is the modern alternative to a veil, or even an amazing addition to one. They are the easiest and coolest way to elevate any style.

5. Messy Updo

Messy Updo

Thanks to Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, loose strands and messy buns are in high demand by brides.  It is a more relaxed look than the traditional chignon and more flirty.

6. Ponytail


More and more brides are choosing sleek ponytails for their big day. Worn high or low at the nape of the neck, these daring brides like the simple yet sophisticated look a ponytail brings. And better yet, it doesn’t matter what your hair looks like currently because by simply adding in strategic extensions, brides can achieve the length and fullness they desire.

7. Simply and Messy

Simple and Messy

The messy-hair-don’t-care look is effortlessly chic and surprisingly low-maintenance. Worn up or down, it holds up beautifully in temperamental or humid weather and brides won’t have to worry about loose ends hours later as that just adds to the final look.

8. Tousled, Soft Waves

Soft, Tousled Waves

If you are looking for an effortless look, this tousled, soft ‘do is for you! It won’t look like the bride spent hours getting ready and the softness of the hair photographs beautifully.
