It’s hard to define cool-girl hair, but when you see it, you just know. There’s a certain je ne sais quoi vibe to it: It’s effortlessly chic, yet laid-back and utterly gorgeous. And if you ask us, when it comes to your wedding hair, your style of choice should be anything but fussy. Gone are the days of stiff updos and ornate curls—these days, it’s all about easy, breezy hair that emulates your bridal style without taking away from your big moment.
