There are so many ways to wear your hair the day of your wedding depending on your dress, veil, and just personal preference. A lot of brides like to go for an updo because they’re elegant but also keep your hair out of your face during the day and don’t hide the dress. If you have long hair the possibilities are endless but if your hair is shorter it might be a bit tricker. Here I’ve listed 3 classic updos - the ponytail, the bun, and the braid - and I’m going to talk about a few different ways to wear them if you’re in need of some inspiration!


The ponytail is sometimes easily overlooked because it’s an everyday style for some people; you just throw your hair up to exercise or run errands. But there are so many ways to make a ponytail sophisticated and beautiful for your wedding. A loose, low ponytail is very minimalistic chic while a slicked back, high ponytail is cool and edgy. Add some volume to create texture or put in some flowers and a sparkly headpiece.


Just like the ponytail you can have a high bun, low bun, or one slicked back toward the middle of your head. Have your curls loose for a messy-bun look or for a more elegant style you can go for a fresh twist or a gibson tuck. Buns are a great bridal hairdo because they allow for the back of your dress to be seen and look great with a veil.


Braids are timeless and are totally unique to every bride and what she decides to do with it. The classic French or fishtail braid are both great for a boho wedding, you can even combine them in one hairdo! Wrap up a braid into a bun or braid your ponytail for a new twist on some classic styles. Everyone wants to feel like a princess on their wedding day so instead of a tiara make a crown out of a dutch braid. The possibilities are endless; and no braid is ever the same!

It's so hard to choose just one style for your big day but you can't go wrong with any of these updo's! There are so many ways to change up these classic styles and make it your own. Your hair stylist will love getting to try new things and at the end of the day wants to make sure you're happy with the final product. Let those creative juices flow!
