The 5 Biggest Trends in Wedding Hairstyles

Freshen up

Selecting the hairstyle for the one day you’ll look back on photographic evidence of for decades can be, well, anxiety-inducing. Especially if you want to feel current but not too trendy. So we turned to Pinterest to find ideas that will work for summer, winter and everything in between. (Oh, and check out our Wedding Hairstyles board for even more inspiration.)

Wavy Hair

Always a winner for weddings with a natural aesthetic. This voluminous look can work with long or short hair. And bonus: If you have highlights or lowlights, even better, as the waves will showcase the change in shades.  

Relaxed Updos

Yes, we’ve seen a lot of updos in our day, but there are some that stand out from the rest. The trick is contained messiness that still has shape and structure. 

Unexpected Accessories

The right accessory can elevate your look (but finding one that doesn’t look like it’s from 1992 is tricky). We love subtle, organic shapes for hair clips and pins that don’t look like they’re trying too hard. 

Long And Loose

Soft ringlets and slight waves and maybe a flower or two, this style works with a variety of dress silhouettes and in warm or cold weather.

Flower Crowns

They’re not just for Coachella and Snapchat filters. These full floral arrangements add visual interest and color, and you just might be surprised at how well one ties together your whole look.
