4. Bejeweled Headwrap

A sleek and chic headwrap brings a vintage but fashion-forward feel to your wedding hairstyle. add a little glitz and glamour to your bridal headwrap by simply clipping in a bedazzled barrette. Hair clips have come a long way from the schoolyard, now complete with giant rhinestones and gems that can make for a gorgeous focal point for your style. Make sure your wrap is secured tightly before you add your barrettes so that you have the option to move them around if you want to play with different placements.

5. Tousled Hair

If there’s one wedding style that’s equal parts sultry and chic, tousled hair takes the top spot. This beautiful style is effortless, ultra-flattering, and adds a playful vibe to your look. It’s also a great way to make hair flyaways work for you if you’re prone to static-ridden strands in the winter. Just add an egg-sized amount of mousse to your hair and scrunch to highlight your texture. Once dry, add a small amount of hair pomade, like the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Hair Putty, to your strands and use it to shape your hair in different directions. Mist a bit of strong-hold hairspray over your mane, and your look is complete.

6. Ballerina Bun

The ballerina bun is a classic for a reason. If you prefer a more simple, understated but timeless look then this wedding hairstyle could be the right fit for your big day. A ballerina bun looks best when paired with smooth strands, so start with shampooing and conditioning your hair with a nourishing hair care line like L’Oréal Paris Elvive Smooth Intense Smoothing Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Smooth Intense Smoothing Conditioner. Pull your hair into a ponytail, twisting the ponytail into a rope, then wrap it around its base to form a bun and secure with a wedding-friendly hair tie and some bobby pins. Help keep your look in place by spritzing your style with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
