Plain & simple

Don’t be afraid to let your locks down naturally! A simple, straightened sleek look or bouncy curls work wonders on brides and can draw more attention to your amazing wedding gown, bold makeup, and gorgeous jewelry. By doing simple styling tweaks like changing your natural hairline part or styling your hair the opposite of its natural texture, you can add a creative twist to your hair that will look stunning.

Flower crowns

If you’re opting for a simpler hairdo, but still want to add some festive florals to your look, flower crowns are the perfect accessory for your wedding hairstyle. They can easily accompany straight hair, soft curls, or beachy waves to add some glamour. These are also special because you can tie in your wedding theme and incorporate the floral accent colors from your wedding to truly make the look pop. Your crown can also be more subtle and less colorful by choosing a green crown or one with more baby’s breath.

Excellent accessories

If you’re rocking a short ‘do for when you say “I do”, above everything else, accessories are your friends. Whether it’s a small floral pin, a studded hairclip, or antique lace headband, these accents can highlight a fun, playful quality in your hair. If your wedding has a strong theme, this is a great opportunity to incorporate a fancy floral or small seashell into your hairdo.

Soft waves

Soft, beachy waves look great on almost all short-lengthed hair. They are easy to maintain and, unlike an updo, won’t have you worried all night about it getting messed up or falling out when you spend all night on the dancefloor. Soft waves also look great with flower crowns or braid accents to add a cute flair.
