How to Choose the Best Wedding Hairstyle

The average cost for bridal hair services ranges from $100 to $350. The exact price depends on several factors but none of them matter. As long as you feel fabulous on your big day, the expense of hair services is worth every penny.

Finding the perfect wedding dress may be of utmost importance to a bride. But second to that is deciding on the perfect wedding hair to complement the dress. If you’re agonizing over hairstyle ideas for your nuptials, keep reading.

This is your guide to finding the best wedding hairstyle for your big day.

Wrapped Bun

The wrapped bun works well no matter your wedding theme or style of dress. If you find that hard to believe, practice this style at home. Pull your hair back and wrap it around to form a single neat bun. 

Or even better, schedule a trial run with your stylist. This simple updo is the epitome of timeless bridal hair. If it’s secured well, the wrapped bun lasts all day and maybe even throughout the night. 

Classic Chignon

If you like more of an elegant wedding hairstyle, go for a classic chignon. It’s a simple-looking updo like a bun. But the hair in a chignon is tucked under rather than wrapped around.

The classic chignon is an understated style. It’s eye-catching but doesn’t distract from the beauty of your wedding dress.

Natural Hairstyle

Your natural hair is part of your everyday natural beauty. And you can sport that same beauty on your wedding day. Your stylist can create an updo or down style that complements your natural hair texture.

Some brides prefer their natural hairstyle so they feel more comfortable. That’s important on a day when all eyes are on you. 


There’s so much versatility in a ponytail and they look great with an A-line dress, But you can rock an elegant ponytail with any style of wedding dress or gown. Choose from a straight or curly ponytail, depending on your desired level of sophistication. 

Your hairstylist can create a unique braided ponytail to wear down your back or draped around the front. And if you like bling, adorn your ponytail with a sparkling hair accessory or add a few crystal hairpins.  


Tell your hairstylist you want a chignon with a twist. It’s an elegant style with a twist of romanticism. 

You can add twists to any updo or pull them into your ponytail. It’s a great way to keep your hair tamed and away from your face. That way won’t disturb your bridal makeup and you stay camera-ready. 

Half Updo

You don’t have to choose between an updo or down style. As long as you choose the right stylist you can have both.

They’ll pull together the right amount of hair for a bun or other updo style. And the rest they can curl or leave straight and flowing.
