Best Wedding Hairstyles

From bohemian loose waves to chic updos, the season's best hair trends are decidedly soft and pretty.

Beachy Hair

Laidback surfer-girl locks may appear effortless, but they actually take some doing: the look begins with healthy, shiny hair, so start deep conditioning a few months before. Day-of, a few hits of texturizing spray (like Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray) will give you that piece-y effect.

Textured Waves

Wildy romantic, bohemian waves add an angelic edge to any style, whether you choose to wear it up, down or somewhere in between. A mousse like Tresemmé 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse ensures perfectly defined texture throughout.

Long & Loose

What better counterpoint to a sexy strapless gown than gorgeously lush locks? Glamorous rolling waves like these have a movie-star allure that befi ts your moment in the bridal spotlight. Ensure picture-perfect results with Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Flexible Hold Hair Spray.

Soft Updos

The loose, slightly undone updo is the perfect choice for the bride who wants something formal but not too prim and precious. Keys to success: light backcombing at the crown for fullness, a styler like John Frieda Luxurious Volume Blow-Dry Lotion Root Booster to amp up the volume at the roots.

At the Nape

The low chignon is having a major moment, and with good reason: feminine and fuss-free, it’s a style that works with every hair texture. For a light-hold finish, try Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray.

Sleek & Chic

Wear your hair in a neat knot, and you’ll be free from stressing over the style going fl t, frizzy or out of control. Sleek and almost minimal, tight clean updos provide the perfect foundation for high-drama veils or fanciful headpieces. This is the time to consider a shine-enhancing potion like René Furterer Vegetal Styling Glossing Spray.
