Hair is a very subjective thing—you like what you like and you know what makes you feel gorgeous. When it comes to your wedding hairstyle, think of it as a chance to give your familiar ‘do a bridal upgrade, whatever that means to you. And if you have no clue which route to take, imagine what might work best with the atmosphere of your celebration, your dress and your overall comfort level. (Having a black-tie soirée in December? Then beachy waves might feel out of place.) Scroll these stunning wedding hair ideas to inspire your day-of look, whether it’s a sleek updo, messy braids or the best version of your natural curls.
