The new classic wedding updo is simple and stunning. It’s fair to say wedding hairstyles have come a long way from the days of overly sculptured and curled hairdos from the 1990s/2000s.  We’ve moved away from the tight curls and glossy gel finish to more relaxed and tousled hairstyles with a dreamy, timeless appeal.  Think Meghan Markle chic and effortlessly elegant.

We’ve gathered 27 of our favourite simple and stunning wedding hairstyles we know you’ll love. Hair goals right here:

Stunning loose updos

These gorgeous wedding hairstyles are unbounded by form. They feel raw and naturally undone – perfect for a relaxed and romantic wedding day. Think relaxed artful textures, low and tousled twists for a romantic look.

Loose updos are the perfect way to accentuate balayage and highlighted hair showcasing depth and texture. For brides with overall colour, these styles still feel textured and perfectly imperfect.

Regardless of the length of your hair, these stunning looks are easy to pull off with the help of teasing, bobby pins and possibly a few extensions.

Simple and easy updos

A wedding day doesn’t need to mean polished locks and perfect curls. These simple yet stunning wedding hairstyles are worthy of a celebration just in themselves.

If your dress is heavily embellished or textured, contrast it with softly smooth hair that’s been gently swept up into an ethereal and romantic updo.  From sheer simplicity to sleek and modern twists, there’s an updo for every bride if that’s what you’re hoping to achieve.

The easy updos below can be achieved with natural waves or constructed by heat and hand. Regardless of how you construct them, we adore the textured and airiness of these beautiful bridal looks.

Accessorising loose and easy wedding hairstyles

The world is your oyster when it comes to accessorising these stunning wedding updos. Finish your look with some simple hair pins, a statement backwards facing comb or a delicate crown to frame your face.

Here are our favourite picks:

Your bridal look should capture who you are, your style and sensibilities, and showcase a more polished version of you. Similarly, your bridesmaids should also look and feel their best on your wedding day. Bridal party trends have shifted a lot over the years from clones of each other to individualised looks that capture their unique personalities. Think mix and match bridesmaids dresses, colours and bridesmaids hairstyles.

From a practical perspective, what might look beautiful on one bridesmaids may not suit the personality or body shape of another bridesmaid.

We’ve pulled together our favourite bridesmaids hairstyles which we know they’ll love. Scroll below for our favourite loose wavy hairstyles, ponytails, half up hairstyles and romantic updos. Mix and match or pick a favourite!

1. Loose wavy hairstyles for bridesmaids

From boho chic to polished and formal, loose wavy hairstyles feel effortless and romantic. Long loose waves suits all bridesmaid dress necklines and frames all face shapes beautifully. Your bridesmaids don’t need to have long hair to pull off this look either. All out hair that’s been softly curled works beautifully in short, medium and long hair lengths.

We love this look for beach weddings, garden nuptials and formal affairs.

2. Ponytails for bridesmaids

For modern maidens, a ponytail is the perfect hairstyle for fashion forward bridal parties. Not blessed with luscious long hair? No worries – consider hair extensions for some instant length.

If you’re looking to give your bridesmaids a gift to show them how much you adore them, perhaps some statement dangly earrings might be the perfect finishing touch to their bridesmaids looks.

3. Half up hairstyles for bridesmaids

Half up hairstyles are functional, beautiful and versatile. They suit a range of face shapes, hair lengths and have the added benefit of keeping strands of hair off their faces.

A half up half down hairstyle provides the perfect foundation to tuck in fresh flowers or a delicate hair comb or hair pin. If you’d love to capture a more organic vibe, think baby’s breath or a beautiful spray of green foliage for a look that’s natural and bohemian inspired.

4. Romantic bridesmaids updos

You can’t go wrong with a romantic updo for your bridesmaids. Whether it’s simple and chic or loosely tousled, bridal updos suit a range of necklines on bridesmaids dresses.

It’s a perfect choice for formal affairs or hot summer weddings outdoors. Practical, effortless and oh-so-chic.

There’s countless updos to draw inspiration from – French twists, romantic braids, ballerina buns, textured updos – you name it. Mix and match updos for a look that your girls will adore.
