Forget everything you know about wedding hairdos. While countless celebrities and royal brides once showcased the typical updo, lately, wedding hairdos have become loose, flowing styles that are softer, more feminine and a far cry from the looks of yesterday.
Long, luscious waves have been seen on everyone from Avril Lavigne to Kate Moss, while Jennifer Aniston’s unforgettable look set the bar for countless wedding hairdos of the 21st century.
That said, you can still experiment with intricate wedding hairdos. As evidenced by Kim Kardashian, a sleek, sculpted bun will add a regal effect to your wedding hairdo, while Hilary Duff’s top knot created a modern effect that was striking, bold and innately modern.
But there’s always the in-between. Wedding hairdos aren’t limited to being worn either “up” or “down”, so if you’re in the market for a more modern wedding hairdo, look to stars like Blake Lively who’ve capitalized on French and side braids, which evokes a stunning, modern feel.
Begin by determining what looks best. Your stylist will be able to figure out which type of wedding hairdos that will work with your hair type and face shape, so don’t get caught up with what’s trendy if it’s not going to work with what you like.
