3 Hot Bridal Hairstyles + Our Earring Picks for Each!

Hairstyle + earrings = the frame for your beautiful bridal face! Inspired by these looks? Make sure to ask your jeweler to show you a selection of similar earring designs to pair with your perfect ‘do

1.) Boho Braid. French, Dutch, fishtail or a combo of techniques…whichever you choose for your wedding-day look, braided bridal hairstyles are so on trend. Natural hair not quite long enough to rock braided locks for your big day? Azur Salon at West Ave has the solution for that! Natural or…helped out a bit…wear your long bridal braid swept to the side, and pair it with a textured drop or modern ear-crawler for maximum cool.

2. Messy Updo. Part classic chignon, part sexy tousle, the slightly undone updo is a lovely bridal hairstyle choice for medium to long locks. Because this style already has a lot of texture and movement, you don’t want to add more with super-elaborate chandelier earrings or oversize stones. Instead, opt for an elegant piece of hair jewelry, and dress your lobes with delicate pearl-and-diamond drops or studs.

3. Half Up, Half Down. It’s a style compromise…in the most beautiful way! The half-updo takes your hair out of your face, but also allows for flow and movement. It’s both demure and dramatic, and it’s the perfect bridal hairstyle to frame your pretty face, and showcase a larger, sophisticated bridal earring style.
