Hairstyle Inspiration for the Modern Bride


Modern brides seem to capture that perfect combination of personalization, uniqueness, and self-expression. And with summer’s arrival, brides are looking for ways to keep cool without sacrificing personal style. Updos are the obvious choice to stay cool amid a hot mid-summer ceremony, but they’ve also become all the rage since Meghan Markle’s modern royal look. Read on for some of our favorite modern and stylish hairstyles to help you rock that cool (literally and otherwise) bridal look.

The Pixie Poise: Short-haired girls can keep it classy with a sleek pixie cut paired with a dazzling hair accessory. It makes for the prettiest statement.

The Low Do: The loose, low bun might be reminiscent of a different era, but it’ll always be a classic in our book. Add a jazzy brooch or headpiece to give your look a twist.  We think there’s no harm in splurging for a great accessory! Consider your purchase a future heirloom.

The Braided Bunch: Brides love braids because they are trendy and when woven into an updo, look absolutely stunning. A multi-braid updo with smaller, intricate braids laced into wider plaits feels so bohemian yet so elegant. Or keep it simpler but statement-making with a side braid giving way to a loose updo. Interesting and unique!

Classic Bun: The traditional sleek bun with a side or middle part is truly timeless. Simple, modern and perfect for classic, cool-girl brides that exude confidence and beauty!

Dreamy Curls: Loose curls held together with a delicate headpiece are what dreams are made of and define modern romantic hairstyles.

Simply Natural: You know that saying advising you to keep it simple? We agree. Let your hair down with the perfect wave, loose curls or sleek strands and slay the modern look with a trendy middle-part or a romantic deep side-part. Simple and stunning!

Bomb Blowout: Opt for a whole lot of movement, body, and volume with a blowout and blow everyone away with your beautiful tresses.

The Side Sweep: Sweep your spouse of their feet with a classically elegant, face-framing side-swept hairstyle that is universally flattering.

The Side Tail: A low fishtail braid, styled to the side, is perfect for our laid-back brides. Weave in a few fresh flowers and you're good to go!

The Braided Blowout: Keep those locks off the face with a side braid twisting into loose, blow-dried curls. Rustic, relaxed and romantic!
