Wedding is the most important day in a girl’s life.

Even as a child, every little girl dreams of her big white princess wedding. She imagines her gown, her veil, and her hair. Should she wear beads, glitter, or flowers, should her hair be up or down, should the gown be white or in a different color, it is all there in her little head.

In today’s modern times, bridal hairstyles have changed and evolved, like everything else in the world. Now it is not only about the bun, a simple bun is so out of style. It is about wearing your hair up in any possible way you can imagine. Hairstylists play with hair to create a real art piece for the most important day in a women’s life. And they do an amazing job. Braids, low buns, high buns, messy, elegant, stylish, you name it, they’ll make it.

If you have no idea how to style your hair, and you still want to wear it up, have a look at the selected ideas below. These styles are not simply buns, they are masterpieces of hair creation. Decorated with the hair design, or beads, or flowers, your hair will complete the look of your dress, because it’s not all in the dress.

This is your day. Let’s make it perfect!

1. Elegant Low Bun

With an elegant dress, you need an elegant hairstyle. Low bun combined with simple discreet braids is one of the solutions for your big day. Choose three smaller flower buns,  instead of one big low bun to achieve the elegance and uniqueness of your style. Decorate it with pearls, beads, or small flowers, or simply let your hair be your decoration.

2. Side-Braided Updo

Curly hair is not always easy to style, especially if you want an updo. If you struggle with your curls, and still want to have a loose, but stylish updo, braid a braid on one side and end it in a loose low bun to both show your curls and still make your hair look clean and elegant.

3. Curly High Bun

Here is another idea for curly hair. Pull your hair up loosely enough, and let your curls form their own path into a bun. Fasten the bun with few hairpins to give it some firmness and form to avoid getting a ponytail instead. Let some locks down to get an even more elegant and stylish look. Decorate it with an elegant hairpiece to complete the look.

4. Elegant High Bun
