Our Favorite Fall Bridal Hairstyles: 


High bridal updo


High bridal updos are making a comeback but with a modern twist. Both celebrities and brides have embraced this iconic '90s style, previously worn by stars like Cindy Crawford and Alicia Silverstone. The bridal trend gained traction at the end of 2022 when Kim Kardashian sported a Pamela Anderson-inspired hairstyle, courtesy of her hairstylist, Chris Appleton, who often recreates the look for his celebrity clients. This modern bridal hair look is tailor-made for brides who want to exude sensuality and make a bold statement on their wedding day. While it complements long hair exceptionally well, it can be adapted for various hair textures, whether curly, straight, fine, or thick. You can pair a high updo with a silk slip dress featuring a high halter neckline or a V-neck gown adorned with a statement necklace for a reception look that is sure to turn heads.


Elegant and relaxed wedding chignon bun


A classic wedding chignon is a classic and timeless hairstyle that exudes simplicity and sweetness, making it a perfect match for most facial structures and any bride. This romantic wedding hairstyle offers a simple and elegant charm that can be authentic and captivating effortlessly. The relaxed version, slightly undone, adds an extra touch of allure to its appeal. This versatile wedding style can be fashioned as a knotted bun or the traditional chignon, but with a gentle looseness that creates a unique and elegant effect.


A sleek bun 


The signature "model off duty" look is still gracing the runways and continues to be a favorite among brides today. From Hailey Bieber to Paris Hilton, this sleek and sophisticated bridal hairstyle has earned its place as a preferred wedding day look. If your style is all about refined elegance, the sleek and architectural bun is the epitome of sophistication. Its simplicity ensures timeless appeal and works beautifully for both medium and long hair lengths. This chic style complements various wedding dresses and venues, whether you opt for a sheath dress in a contemporary loft or a ball gown at a picturesque chateau. Plus, it's adorable for flower girls too! You can keep the sleek bun minimalist, or add a statement hairpiece to elevate the look further. Bridal headpieces and accessories like crowns or combs effortlessly enhance this hairstyle, acting as a canvas for adding that extra touch of glamor to your bridal ensemble.


The classy high ballet bun 


The classic high bun is an excellent hairstyle choice for brides wearing a wedding dress with a high neckline. It elegantly pulls the hair away from the face, providing a beautiful and sleek finish. This versatile style complements various wedding hair accessories, such as tiaras, combs, or barrettes, adding a touch of glam to the overall look. You can also match the accessories with your fall wedding bouquet ideas. Whether you have medium-length or long hair, the high bun is relatively easy to create and maintain, making it a practical and stunning choice for the entire wedding day.


Side-swept curls 


Side-swept bridal curls have remained a timeless red carpet staple, gracing the heads of celebrities like Rihanna and Jessica Chastain. This look is adored for its easy-to-achieve yet polished appearance. To give it a modern wedding upgrade, consider adding a pearl or rhinestone clip to the side opposite the curls for an extra-glamorous effect. You can also opt for accessories in fun and fresh rustic wedding colors. Thick hair is an ideal match for side-swept curls as it adds fullness and volume to the style. However, if your hair is on the thinner side, don't worry. You can opt for bridal hair extensions. This red carpet-worthy 'do is versatile and complements various bang lengths and hair types, making it suitable for brides, bridesmaids, or guests alike. To create side-swept curls, use a solid, yet flexible pomade to slick back the sides and secure the look with bobby pins. Then, drape the gorgeous curls over the pins for a seamless finish.


Center-parted hair with tucked bangs 


The classic center part has long been a popular choice for brides due to its balanced and symmetrical effect on the face. As per modern bridal hairstyles, this classic wedding hair trend takes a nod from old Hollywood by tucking the bangs back, drawing attention to the face, and enhancing the overall look. This classic and sophisticated hairstyle carries an air of cool-girl charm. Its practicality keeps tresses away from the face, making it an excellent option for nearly all hair types and textures, whether you are a guest, a bridesmaid, or the bride herself. You can go for glossy locks with a center part and tuck the bangs behind your ears. You can add an accessory like the barrettes and other bridal head accessories for an extra touch of chicness and nostalgia. 


Elegant wedding ponytail


A bridal ponytail is another stunning option for wedding hairstyles, particularly for those with long hair. To elevate this classic wedding hairstyle for your special day, you can add a touch of creativity and uniqueness. A half-up wedding hairstyle with a ponytail positioned at the top half of your head creates an elegant and charming look. Alternatively, you can opt for a regular ponytail but tie it with a bow or accessorize it with a delightful scarf for a playful twist. If you have shoulder-length hair and desire a longer ponytail, hair extensions can help achieve the desired length and volume. The ponytail remains a timeless bridal trend that continues to be popular in modern times, making it a fantastic choice for brides seeking a stylish and timeless look on their wedding day.


Wispy tendrils 


While long curtain bangs have been popular in recent years, face-framing wispy tendrils are making a comeback. Actress Sarah Hyland donned this style for her California winery wedding, showcasing a slightly undone updo with textured tendrils. If you want to infuse your wedding hairstyle with personality, this wedding hair trend is made for you. The strategically cut and styled textured tendrils add dimension and charm to the look, making it an excellent choice for both half-up styles and traditional updos. If you are hosting a beach wedding, you can opt for this next hairstyle by using dry texture sprays for tousled texture. Simply spray, tousle, and go for that effortless finish. 


Long bridal braids 


Braided wedding hairstyles continue to be a strong trend today, showcasing the versatility and beauty of braided hairstyles. While braids have been a classic choice for weddings, it's refreshing to witness the various creative renditions they can take. From elegant French braids cascading to the side to ethereal loose braided crowns and charming half up half down wedding hairstyles adorned with braids, there are countless stylish ways to incorporate braids into your bridal look. Also, braids offer a delightful canvas for accessorizing your wedding hair, making them even more captivating. For beach wedding hairstyles, braids can be adorned with seashells, combs featuring nautical motifs, tiaras, slides, clips, and other decorative elements. Regardless of the style and accessories chosen, one thing is clear: braids have set their place as a perennial favorite and are here to stay as a cherished wedding hairstyle trend in the coming years.


Effortless curls 


Today, natural beauty continues to reign, and effortless waves are at the forefront! Celebrities like JoJo Fletcher and Madison Prewett opted for natural waves on their wedding days, proving that simplicity is just as stunning as intricate hairstyles. If you are a minimalist at heart, effortless waves are the perfect choice. They require minimal styling products and are low-maintenance, allowing you to enjoy your special day without worrying about complex hairstyles. Effortless waves look stunning on various hair types, making them suitable for brides of all styles. To achieve effortless waves, use a curling wand to curl sections of your hair. Alternate the curling direction for a natural finish. You can gently brush out the curls for a soft and effortless look.


The gorgeous fall wedding colors of rich and deep hues can also serve as an inspiration for more daring and artistic bridal hairstyles. For instance, copper-toned hair adorned with subtle golden highlights embodies the essence of autumn's fiery spirit. This captivating hair color adds a touch of drama and individuality to the bride's overall look, celebrating the uniqueness of her style while harmonizing with the season's brilliance. Copper tones, in all their variations, create a mesmerizing glow that accentuates the bride's natural beauty.
