The Best in Bridal Hair


Whether you’re planning your own nuptials or just browsing for inspiration, bridal hairstyles are always a visual treat to behold. Every gal has a unique style of her own, and no coif should be the same, right? We scanned Beautylish for our favorites, and found a gaggle of amazing inspiration. Discover the best in bridal hair and tell us which style you prefer!

These wedding hairstyles are anything but effortless (even though they look it!). Requiring the precision of an artist’s touch, the defined texture of these strands transforms your mane into a sculpted work of art. We’re loving Kylee Larissa’ K.’s undulating loops (left), Idda van Munster V.’s pin curled-to-perfection vintage ‘do (right), and Cali M.’s interwoven, nested bun (bottom).

For most brides, a walk down the aisle wouldn’t be complete without a touch of bling. But there’s a fine line between kitsch and queenly. Fortunately, our favorites veer royal. We’re inspired by Le M.’s jewel-encrusted vision (right); loose, tumbling locks are coronated with a gilded headpiece that fits her exotic aesthetic. Following suit, Raji K. pairs her stunning Pakistani makeup with a sleek, regal bun and elaborate ear candy (left). And for just a hint of sparkle, top a tousled updo with a jewel-encrusted barrette (left)—more gorgeous hair inspiration from Cali M!

There’s a hairstyle for the bohemian soul in all of us. Loose, cascading waves like those styled by Catherine G. (right) conjure images of a fairytale romance, while Kylee Larissa K.’s bobbed ringlets (bottom) are accented by enchanted crystalline branches. And if you consider yourself a princess of plaits, try Marian S.’s  simple, sideswept Dutch braid (left).

A wedding is oft the time to stick to classic beauty ideals, but for those willing to think outside the square, don’t worry—droves of hairstyles are made for your playful sensibilities! We’re particularly taken by the asymmetric, doll-like updo from Fiona H.’s portfolio (right)—can you say Emma Stone at the Met Ball? Kira T.’s fabric fascinator (bottom) and the whimsical bowler hat from Erin D.’s portfolio (left) equally inspire a different, more experimental approach.
