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.
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
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.
