25 Wedding Updos That Are Anything But Uptight

Among all the advice you’ll get for your wedding day, you’ll often be told to wear your hair off your face.  Updos, though, may conjure up bad memories of prom night bouffants and corkscrew tendrils. Definitely not a look you want for your wedding.

An updo definitely doesn’t have to be uptight. Soft, natural hair is the look that most brides go for nowadays. Top buns are big and an obvious choice, and with a little practice (and sometimes a sock) you can rock one, too.

Braids are back in town, but loose, in multiples and often pulled askance. Think side braids, crown braids and braids wrapped around pony tails.

If you like a little dazzle, hair accessories like headbands, barrettes and clips are everywhere right now and an easy way to glam up a classic chignon. Or you can tease the crown of your head into a poof for a little height and drama.

Whatever you choose, go light on on the hairspray and consider other products such as mousse or gel to hold your style. And as few bobby pins as possible. It’s okay if a few pieces go stray.

Click through the slideshow for 25 updos that are soft, glamorous and totally modern.
