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.

How to accessorise naturally curly wedding hair

When it comes to accessorising naturally curly hair:

  • Less is more. A simple hair comb that doesn’t compete with the texture of your hairstyle will feel effortless and pulled together.
  • Choose accessories that accentuate your curls. Scalloped lines on a lace trim, a hair comb with whimsical details or a narrow headband that frames the face.
  • Natural flowers tucked around your bun will add a bohemian and romantic touch to your look.
  • A traditional tulle wedding veil, with or without a lace trim, is a beautiful way to frame your hairstyle from behind without feeling over styled or fussy.
  • The attachment on your accessories are important to ensure they will stay in place.
  • Metal hair combs or a metal hair clip will feel more secure than hair pins. Hair pins can still be used but ensure they are reinforced with some bobby pins to stay in place.
