Top 5 Hairstyles For The Non-Bridal Bride

Not everyone wants a huge frou-frou wedding with a reception, dress and hairstyle that evolves into a massive production.

While everyone’s wedding day is without a doubt one of the biggest and most important days of their life, that doesn’t mean you need to fit into a particular aesthetic typeset – or look. Nor do you have to play the part of certain “type” of bride.

These days, there are plenty of ‘non-bridal’ wedding outfits and accessories catering to the less traditional bride. But what options are there for our hair? Will a loose, totally undone down-style suffice, or is something slightly less everyday-ordinary called for? Obviously, you will need a hairstyle that reflects your less-is-more attitude, without looking like you’ve just rolled out of bed!

If you’re getting married and don’t fancy any of the traditional “bridal” hairstyles, read on.

Spring has sprung, so what better hairstyle to choose than a fishtail headband!

    The hairstyles look amazing. I like Sleek High Ponytail, it seems simple and beautiful. The high bun is also wonderful, do you have any details about how I could make this? Thanks.
