Effortlessly beautiful bridal hairstyles are not as easy to create as it might seem. You want to look like yourself on your wedding day…just your best, most gorgeous self. For Houston brides, that means a softly tousled bun, long flowing waves, or a dramatic updo that will stand the test of Texas weather. With a little professional help, your wedding hairstylist can help you look effortlessly beautiful, from the first look to the last dance.

Sexy waves, swingy “lobs” or parted, minimalist bridal hairstyles are perfect for brides with mid-length to long hair. Long and loose bridal hairstyles work for a causal wedding or an elegant hotel affair, as they pair well with strapless gowns, lace sleeve gowns and long veils.

For hair jewelry in flowing, loose bridal hair, try a modern tiara such as a Maria Elena headpiece, or preppy and on-trend pearl barrettes like these from Hello Molly. If your wedding will be outdoors, ask your stylist for touch-up tips or product you need to add to your wedding day emergency kit, and keep a small brush or wide-tooth comb in your bridal bag.

Ballerina topknots, braided buns or soft chignons keep tresses tamed for outdoor ceremonies or hours of dancing at raise-the-roof receptions, all without worrying about wilting, stringy hair.

For accessories to add to your boho braided bridal hairstyle, think queen-size crowns, fresh florals or statement earrings. Paired with a structured bridal dress or a ballgown with lots of tulle, these bridal hairstyles look great all night long, and require minimal attention.

One of our favorite looks (thank you, Duchess of Sussex!), the effortlessly beautiful look of loose and messy buns and softly romantic half-updos have taken Pinterest by storm since the Royal Wedding. These bridal updos work with a variety of bridal gowns, but especially with lace, embroidered or illusion-accented gowns. Wear a veil or a pretty halo for the ceremony, then switch to small clips or jeweled hair pins for the reception.
