Fresh Bridal Updos for 2017

If even hearing the term “updo” conjures thoughts of your 16 year old self sporting a French twist on prom night, we’re hear to help you get past that trauma of bad teen hair with a collection of modern, fresh, and downright beautiful bridal updos that are worthy of your wedding day.  
 

The Braided Updo

Braids have been a big trend in updos over the last few years. We love the texture and playfulness the braids bring, especially when worked into looser, romantic hairstyles like the ones below.

The Chignon

A chignon–which is essentially a bun or hairstyle done at the nape of the neck, is a class wedding style, and one that you can guarantee you’ll still love when you look back at your wedding photos three decades from now. The style is incredibly versatile too, so you can customize it to match the formality of your dress or location of your affair. We’ve gathered a few of our favorites from Pinterest, ordered from more structured and formal, to looser and more romantic.

The Almost-Up Do

Another big hairstyle that’s gained popularity with brides lately is what we’re calling “The Almost-Up Do.” That’s because it’s not quite an updo since the hair is still left long, but it’s also too structured to simply call this “wearing your hear down.” It’s a beautiful choice for brides who want to show off their long locks, but don’t want to have to worry about curls falling flat, frizz, or taming stray hairs. We love this look for beach or outdoor weddings.

The Twist (& Shout!)

If curls feel a little too prim for your taste, but braids are a bit bohemian, a twisted updo might be your happy medium. Twists are less voluminous than curls, so they feel sleeker and more modern, but they’re also imperfect and spontaneous, which makes the style anything-but-stiff.
