Although most of these brides have long and straight hair, all of these hairstyles can be adapted for medium length as well as naturally curly locks. In fact, plenty of these styles would be extra lovely styled with the added texture and volume of wavy and curly hair. Just chat with your stylist and be sure to bring a picture of any looks you love.
For brides, all of these updos can be worn with wedding veils and/or wedding hair accessories like headbands, tiaras, clips, or flowers. These pops of color, shine, and sparkle add detail to any hairstyle. For maximum impact, choose an accessory that contrast your hair color like pearls or rhinestones for dark hair or colored flowers or silver for light hair.
