10 Best Wedding Hairstyles with Accessories for Any Wedding
Boho Chic hairstyle with headpiece
(Best for rustic wedding)
Working around the headpiece*, the hairdresser began by spritzing dry hair with a potion of sea salt and water; he then promptly bundled it into a topknot. Giving the bun heat with a blow dryer and a half-hour to form some natural wave and texture, he then let it down and a combed a center part. Working with the hair still warm, he wove a small braid, tousled the entire head with his fingers, and placed the halo. Indeed, this is a look best suited to the beach or meadow-bound bride.
Headpiece: Lilium Halo
Braided bridal hairstyle with feathered hair piece
(Best for outdoor wedding)
Perfect for the bride picturing an outdoor, candlelit ceremony, the hairdresser offers a spin on the everyday braid. “I was inspired by medieval hairstyles,” he said. “This look has an earthy feel to it, especially when you add the feathered hair piece, but it forms this beautiful halo around the head, which adds drama.” From a side part he began braiding around the face, starting with hair closest to the hairline and adding to the braid with hair further back on the head. He continued this until finally coming full circle. After securing the tail of the braid into its beginning with a bobby, he began pulling at the braid gently with his fingers, concentrating at the nape of the neck to anchor the style.
Bob wedding hairstyle with leaflet headband
(Grace Kelly inspired)
For this faux-bobbed ’do inspired by one of, if not the most, elegant American icons, the hairdresser began by combing mousse into dry hair to ensure a firm set. Then, using large sections of hair, he set the entire head with medium-barreled hot rollers. Once cooled, he combed out the curls, positioned the headband, teased the hair directly behind it and smoothed. After this, he began folding the hair under and pinning equal-sized sections at the nape of the neck. He gave the bob a gentle comb to smooth and finish.

Short curly bridal hairstyle with 14k gold plated comb
Channeling nightclub coifs from the Roaring Twenties, the hairdresser started by applying gel to wet hair and then drew a side part. Combing hair down across the forehead and then back toward the temple, out toward the cheekbone and then back toward the ear, he formed the finger wave that defines the look. He then secured the wave and balance of the hair into a low side chignon, which he braided to create more texture. After drying the hair with a diffuser, our Titian Comb tucked just above the chignon provided the finishing touch.
Accessories: Titian Comb
Vintage twist bridal hair with Swarovski crystals hairpin
For the bride who likes her prim and proper with a side of quirk and vintage, the hairdresser presents a modified banana twist. To start, he drew a shallow side part, and then teased and smoothed the hair before pulling all of it to one side of the neck. He then began to twist this piece up and over the crown, finishing and securing the twist close to the hairline. Gently pulling from the part and shaping with his fingers, he finished with a final swoop across the forehead and the Swarovski crystals hairpin, tucked side and center.

Updo bridal hairstyle with gold plated headband
Bright, playful, and the look most closely resembling a traditional up-do, this one makes a fine counterpart to the 14k gold plated headband (and a ballroom reception). The hairdresser began by setting the entire head with a 1-inch barrel curling iron. After combing it out, he gathered a high ponytail on top of the head. He then began pinning sections of hair around the base of the pony—“it gets more artistic as you play with it,” said Moiz.

Loose wavy wedding hair with pillowy petals hairpin
With Rita Hayworth top of mind, Moiz kept hair full and loose, pulling it back just enough to let the hairpin share the spotlight. To start this simple yet head-turning style, he combed mousse through wet hair before drying it, and then set the entire head with a 1-inch barrel curling iron. After letting the hair down and combing it through, he began to sculpt. “The key,” said the hairdresser, “is to ‘zhuzh’ it plenty—just start at it with your hands to get right amount of volume and shape.”

French twist wedding hairsytle with crystal headwrap
The hairdresser conjures one part Bardot, two parts Twiggy for this year take on the bouffant-twist. To start, he divided the hair into two sections, parting it across the back of the head. He twisted the bottom portion up as you would a French twist. He then secured this piece into a knot on the crown, creating the base for his bouffant. To complete the look, he took the top portion of hair (now well-teased and set back with the Swarovski crystal headwrap) and smoothed it over the knot, folding the ends seamlessly into the twist.
Headwrap: Smoke Crystal Headwrap
Chignon wedding hairstyle with blusher veil
A clever and that much more formal manipulation of the blusher veil becomes the signature of this look. “It’s super simple,” said the hairdresse, “but packs all the punch of a well-groomed society gal.” He started by combing the hair straight back into a low ponytail. Securing this with a hair band, he then began to tease the pony and twist it tightly into a chignon. Here’s where the veil comes in: to complete the look, he fastened the comb above the chignon, folded a layer of tulle down and over it, and then pinned the tulle into place.
Veil: Sainted Sister Blusher Veil
Vintage bridal hairstyle with the birdcage veil
Proving that all the birdcage veil needs is a polished down ’do, the hairdresser evokes the charm and presence of a 40s screen siren. Using a 1-inch barrel curling iron, he began winding the entire head of hair, 1-inch section by 1-inch section. After this, he drew a side part into the hair and combed out it thoroughly to achieve a smooth, uniform texture. For a look that won’t go anywhere, indoors or outdoors, “hairspray it to death,” he said.
