Wedding hairstyles

As they say, the hair is the crowning glory. And for brides, it's not just the look of the gown that makes them the center of attention. The hairstyle does, too. The way you wear your hair on your special day enhances your facial features and makes you radiate even more -- even under your veil.

I believe aside from the shape of your face, your hairstyle should also complement your wedding dress. Brides wearing strapless gowns can wear their hair down, while those with intricate necklines should have an updo so that the details of the gown won't be covered.

Most brides I've seen tied their hair into a neat bun. A simple look made more classy with accessories like tiaras, hairpins, or hair vines. Other brides like it worn down, styled with some waves for a bit of volume. As for me, I wore an updo to match my halter-neck wedding gown. Plus it can get pretty hot up at the altar.

Anyways, for today's inspiration, I looked for bridal hairstyles over the Net. I collated possible hairstyles for short to mid-length to long hair, from straight to wavy to curly. Hope you like it!
