17 Half Up, Half Down Hairdos for Brides

It’s the great debate every bride has to figure out before their wedding day — hair up or hair down? Sure, the updo is classic and polished. But down is relaxed and a little more you. We don’t want you to spend a second more agonizing over it, so we’ve figured out the perfect solution — the half up and half down solution! It’s tres romantic and super low maintenance. With these 17 styles, you can dance the night away without a worry in the world other than having the best night of your life.
