Add something extra to your bridal look by donning a headband. From a classic rhinestone headpiece, to an all-white band, the options are endless. 


2. Low Bun

A tight low bun is a great option for a classic bridal look, especially in warmer months. Style it to the side so guests can see it when you're facing front. We recommend this 'do for summer nuptials.


3. Side-Swept Curls

Talk about a romantic look. Ask your hairstylist for waves or curls, and sweep them to the side. We think this style will compliment a lace dress perfectly. 


4. Intricate Up-Do

If there's ever a time to go all-out on your hair, it's your wedding day. Don't be afraid to ask your stylist for a super stylish up-do, Not only will it look stunning, but it's a foolproof way to keep strays out of your face.

Whether it's curled or straight, you can never go wrong with a styled ponytail. Off to the side or low in the back, it's always a great go-to 'do.
