They say it’s all about the dress, but what about the hair?

With weddings, the focus is always on choosing the perfect dress but your hair can be your best accessory on your special day. It’s the accessories that make an outfit and that bring your personal style to your look. Choosing a hairstyle to match your wedding style is easy with this wedding hairstyle guide.

The Bohemian Bride
The bohemian bride is a free spirit. Her hair is long and a few simple braids are all she needs to style her wedding hairstyle. A pretty Angel Braid will keep her hair off her face, or the gorgeous Waterfall Braid looks stunning with curls.

The Rock’n’Roll Bride
For retro ‘50s inspired weddings, the Quiffed Ponytail is just swell when paired with a tea length dress. The Asymmetric Chignon is classic with a twist, just like your wedding style.

For a more relaxed wedding day, the Messy High Bun is perfect or wear your hair down in a Side Ponytail. Don’t forget to add a flower corsage to your hair that matches your husband’s boutonniere.

The Beach Bride
Channel your inner mermaid with a French Fishtail Braid or let your locks flow loose, held back with a Crowning Braid. This style is divine when worn with a flower crown sitting just above the braid.
