Sideswept hairstyles have always been a popular look, then the shaved hair trend took the beauty world by storm and gave sideswept styles a bold new vibe, followed by the (more accessible) faux-shaved style which featured French braids or pinned back hair. Styled-to-the-side 'dos are now so much more than a gathered sidepony.

Whether you're going after romantic, sweeping waves or something with more edge, here are 17 styles to inspire your bridal look.
