  1. Windsept Updo

    Casual but still so chic, "windswept" updos are the new standard in wedding hair. Let a few face-framing loose strands fall from your chignon for a cool look that works with or without a veil.

    Knotted braids give the classic low bun a boho vibe. Pair with a hair vine or vintage-inspired clips to take this whimsical look up a notch.

  3. Chic Chignon

    You'll need a lot of hair to pull this off or at least a lot of extensions, but an undone chignon looks utterly dreamy. Having a garden wedding? Add a floral wreath to play up the romantic feel of this updo.

  4. Classic Ballet Bun

    You can't go wrong with a traditional ballerina bun. The best part about this simple, slicked back hairstyle? It's the perfect canvas for over-the-top hair accessories (like these butterfly clips).

  5. High-Fashion Fishtail Braid

    Elaborate braids have been hot for a few seasons, but we love this dressed-up version of the fishtail braid. A little volume on top and a thin black ribbon put a sophisticated spin on this trendy style.

  6. Low Rolled Bun

    If you love the sleek feel of a top knot, consider a low rolled bun. This minimalistic bun sits right above the nape of your neck, making it easy to rock a headpiece or veil for an extra-glam look.
