To wear your hair up or down? That's the question for every bride-to-be. We've pitted two classic bridal hairstyles against one another: the romantic bun and hippie chic waves. The question is, which style better fits into your fairy tale wedding fantasy?
The Romantic Bun
The hairstyle: A romantic bun is traditionally worn either low at the nape of the neck or high at the crown, save for a few wispy tendrils framing the face. For extra glam, just add a glittering embellishment.
The style: Your wedding day outfit is often a simple one – there's the dress, the shoes, the flowers and some delicate jewellery. So when it comes to your hair, give your stylist a license to go for it with intricate details within the romantic bun.
What the editors say: Big ball gown? Check. Loads of guests? Check. If you've always dreamed of a big princess wedding, then this romantic bun is the style for you.
Hippie Chic Waves
The hairstyle: Loose hippie chic waves look dreamy on medium to long hair. However don't be put off by the style if your hair is more lob length – this soft and underdone look also works on shorter hair.
The style: Hippie chic waves are undoubtedly a more casual take on bridal hair. Making it wedding-worthy all comes down to pairing the style with the right accessories. Think: flower crowns, metal leaf headbands, hair jewels or anything that sparkles.
What the editors say: Whether you're tying the knot barefoot on the beach or just prefer a more relaxed wedding style, hippie chic waves will suit this casual vibe to a T.
