4) The classic chignon


Elegant Hairstyles

This classic hairstyle is a favorite among brides because it is elegant, timeless, and easy to achieve. Although the chignon can be achieved with any length of hair, those with shoulder-length or longer hair will have an easier time. To create this look, you’ll need to section your hair off into three parts: two side sections and one in the back.

You've found the one, now I find the dress.

5) The half-up, half-down hairstyles

The half-up, half-down hairstyle is perfect for any bride who wants to keep their hair out of their face but still have it look elegant. This style can be worn with loose curls or straight locks. To wear this hairstyle, create a middle parting in your hair from ear to ear. Then, tie one section of your hair at the back of your head into a ponytail that reaches just above your neckline.

6) The waterfall braid

The waterfall braid is an elegant, yet simple hairstyle that works well with many different hair lengths. To do this style, start by pulling all your hair to one side of your head, then divide it into three sections. Take the top section (closest to your face) and fold it over in front of the middle section. Now cross that section over the bottom section.

7) The crown braid

This popular hairstyle is perfect for the bride who wants to show off their beautiful locks, but doesn’t want to take a lot of time on hair styling. It’s a braid that starts at the top of your head and goes all the way around down to your neck, with a little bit tucked in at the back. If you’re looking for something more elaborate than just tucking in some strands, consider adding flowers or other embellishments.
