Now that you have the dress, how do you coordinate your overall bridal look? Long and straight? Boho braids? Short and whimsical?
Call me old fashioned, but I still think the best hair do for the "I Dos" is the ever elegant chignon. It instantly adds that timeless quality to any look and is so feminine. And with today's bounty of red carpet worthy hair, you'll never be out of ways to reinterpret a classic for today.
Too often I have seen brides in an updo only be be done in by Mr. Helmet Head Hairspray or looking like your high school prom hair (yikes!). The key is to have structure, but not lose volume and regardless of style you always want to give your hair that "I'm just so touchable" look.
Sarah Michelle Geller: love the volume at the crown and the twisted locks at the nape of the neck looks so dainty.
From Instyle Weddings: though this bride has a lot of volume at the top, she softens the look by having such soft looking locks. And talk about accessories!
Eva Longoria: a swept back look with luxurious curls in the back.
Scarlett Johansson: a throwback to the 60s. Sweeping bangs curled into a side part.
Michelle Williams: what a fresh twist! A low bun at the nape of the neck with bangs done in soft waves. Let a few pieces escape so you can twirl it around your finger.
Becki Newton: has anyone else noticed that hair styles are going back to the center? But please take note brides - definitely try this style before the big day as the center part can sometimes make your face appear rounder.
