45 “I Do”-Worthy Wedding Hairdos

After that initial, all-important “yes,” there’s a whole lot you need to decide on for your Big Day — dress, venue, color scheme, party, DJ and hair! Whether you go for a free-flowing romantic look, a sleek updo or a simple style with a stunning accessory, your hair is almost as important as your dress when it comes to making a statement as you strut, skip or walk (see, more decisions!) down the aisle. From floral crowns and loose braids, to updos and glam blowouts, we have 45 beautiful examples of wedding hair to help you decide on a ‘do to say “I do” in.

1. Jessica Alba’s Red Carpet Updo: It doesn’t hurt to take your wedding day inspiration from a pro who has had more updos in her lifetime than everyone in your bridal party combined. Here, we’ve hacked Jessica Alba’s look with a step-by-step tutorial, so your friend can even do your hair for you and save you some cash. (via Brit + Co)

2. Milkmaid Braid: If you’re still rocking the ombre ends at your wedding, try a braided crown. The blond in your hair gives a really cool look when contrasted against your darker roots. (via Paper and Lace)

3. Sleek Topknot: For the classic bride, you really can’t go wrong with a sleek topknot bun. Leave it simple and plain or decorate with some florals. Either way, the look is perfection. (via Style Me Pretty)

4. Twisted Bun: For a softer and more elegant take on the topknot, try this twisted version that leaves strands loose. You can pull all your hair up or leave a few curls around your face for a free-spirited look. (via Once Wed)

5. Flower Child: This dark haired bride chose a simple pink flower crown that contrasts perfectly with her hair color. For a casual outdoor wedding, just go with all-natural wavy curls and let the flowers do the talking. (via Wendy Laurel)

6. Floral Braid: For a way different take on the floral crown, try braiding flowers into a sideways fishtail braid! It is a great way to include flowers into your look without doing the boho crown. (via Wedding Bells)

7. Half Up Twist: Instead of just wearing your hair halfway up, make the look a little more special by adding tiny twists on top of a pretty twisted crown. Add tiny pearl pins or delicate flowers to keep the look light and romantic. (via Swooned)

8. Flower Headband: Go natural on your wedding day and use a pretty headband or bright flower (or both!) to add the perfect amount of color and interest to an already gorgeous ‘do that’s all you. (via Wedding Bells)

9. Mini Flower Crown: Instead of going full crown, try doing just a mini crown on the back of your head. This looks beautiful with the half up French braid and long curls, but would look amazing with an updo as well. (via Swooned)

10. Low Twist: DIY this hairstyle in two minutes and no one will believe you didn’t have a stylist. (via Hello Natural)

11. Handful of Ribbons: Ribbons aren’t just for the flower girls. Weaving a soft pink or white ribbon through dark hair adds a romantic touch while adding a brightly-colored ribbon would make the hairstyle perfectly whimsical. (via Wedding Chicks)

12. DIY Parisian Twist: Here is another gorgeous style that you can do yourself. This tucked up braid actually works really well with both long and short hair. (via Wedding Party)

13. Loose Halo Braid: Embrace your fairytale dream with this chunky halo braid. (via Green Wedding Shoes)

15. Side Swept: Go for a casual updo with delicate little strands surrounding your face. It may look barely pinned together, but we promise it’ll stay up well into a long night of dancing. (via Ruffled)

16. Free Spirit Braid: For the wedding that is more of a party than a ceremony, we love the idea of weaving some colorful yarn into a side braid and letting the rest flow free. (via Knit Collage)
