The updo is always popular when it comes to bridal hairstyles. However, you can choose an updated look on the classic updo. All you need to do is take a look at popular wedding hairstyles to find a contemporary style that you will like.
The chignon can be an easy way to get an elegant style for the day, but to make it more modern, consider adding more height to the crown of the head through teasing. To understand this look a little better, think of the updos that were popular in the 1960s. These teased styles have certainly gained popularity for the coming year.
For a sleeker updo, think of a twist or a bun at the nape of the neck instead of the back of the head. Bangs can be swept to the side and tendrils of hair can be let loose to frame the face. This lower updo can be more versatile for various types of veils that you may choose to wear.

Wedding Hair Styles:  Creative Use of Braids

Braids are extremely popular for wedding hairstyles. These braids can be worked into almost any updo for a soft, romantic look. Try choosing small pieces of hair around the hairline and braid them all the way from roots to end. Then, work them into the updo. Alternatively, you can choose to pull the hair back into an updo and then braid chunkier pieces that you weave around on themselves.
Braids allow for a great deal of creativity when it comes to wedding hairstyles, so you may want to try a number of different options until you find one that you love.

Wedding Hairstyles:  The Messy Pull Back

Messy updos have certainly become popular for almost any event. To get a look that is fun and messy while still refined enough for the big day, try this look. Tease the crown of the hair for height and then pull the hair back into a loose ponytail. Then, take various pieces of hair in the ponytail and wind them around each other until you have a complete updo. You can even add a few braids for a different look.
When it comes to wedding hairstyles for this year, it is all about the updo. Whether you choose a throwback teased style, a sleek nape of the neck bun or a messy updo, you can find a style that works for your wedding.
