wedding wednesday- hair.

the perfect hair style is just as important as the dress + the shoes. here's my game plan:: since i am getting married in the middle of the summer i will probably go with some sort of up-do. my hair is pin-straight so i'll pass on lots of curls. and i plan on keeping my bangs so i have been on the search for a unique style that works with my bangs...

retro styles - via, via, via

bangs - via, via, via

braids - via, via, via

what wedding hair styles do you prefer? 
an up-do? down? wavy? straight? 
xo,

  3. Beautiful choices! I love up-dos at weddings. My favorites are the braided ones you've got at the bottom - especially the one on the left!

  4. I'm loving all of these styles -- esp. the half up/down look! I think it'd be cute with bangs! I had a giant ballerina bun for my wedding-do.

  6. Love the updo to the side and loose looking. I think thats how I am going to wear my hair for my wedding. Still checking out other opions as well but I really love the loose updo look!

  7. Ooh I love all of these! I sort of wish I had done a side bun up-do. Can't wait to see what you decide on!

  8. All of these are great! I love the ones that are half up/ half down, or with the bangs swooped to the side.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Yay! You will look just beautiful with your bangs! I like the updo with the bangs and the half up style with lots of poof at the top!!

  10. I think it depends a lot on the dress and what the bride is comfortable with. As a former hairstylist I always recommend trying it out ahead of time to be sure you and the stylist are on the same page. The updo w/the bangs is cute. xo

  11. these are some beautiful inspirations! i prefer hair up because it has a better chance of staying that way!! if you do it half down or all down, depending on the weather, your curls may fall out! but if you decide to do it that way, its soo pretty too ahha!!

  12. so pretty! i know someone who used that exact image of carrie underwood for her wedding hair inspiration and it turned out amazing. so classy. i personally prefer up, but that's just because if my hair is in my face, it drives me nuts. that's the last thing i wanted to worry about on my wedding day.

  13. I love the red head's updo. So cute! I think that would look great on you. :)

  14. I love the retro styles! I did a glamorous retro do and it was so happy with the look. great roundup.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ohh I am loving these looks! And I think keeping your bangs will look lovely! I definitely recommend an up-do of some sort...one less thing to worry about during the day/night! :)

  16. I love the more natural looks (nothing to structured or crazy). Some of those braids are absolutely gorgeous!

  18. I had mine up with side swept bangs. I think showing off the neck is very pretty. Although, letting the hair down is a bit more free spirited.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Such great inspiration! Your hair will look darling on your wedding day, I just know it!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I want down hair when I get married. like wavy and chic :) but I am loving these updos!

  29. I love the updo on the redhead. Advice: wear your hair similar to the way you usually wear it but even more glamourous. I wore mine down & curled and I'm so glad that I did. I pinned it up myself for dancing, but now I look back and see myself in pictures, not some barbie.
    Unless that's what you're going for--which I'm sure you're not! ;)
    Love, Leigh

  30. i'm gonna do an up-do too. my hair is curly, so i want to leave the curls and probably do a low, messy bun : )

    ReplyDelete
  31. Amazing options, Jillian! I think the bottom left is my fave. Classic and chic.

    ReplyDelete
  32. love the retro look, weddings are classic and so are the hair styles! Is it weird that I am excited for YOUR wedding haha?

  33. Love Carrie's hair and the braids.. i am trying to decide what i want to do for my bff's wedding i am the MOH in over Labor Day weekend!

  34. I grew my hair out for two years before my wedding, so you can bet that I wore it down! It's definitely personal preference, and there are some updos that I absolutely love, but there's just something about hair being down that I love :)

    xoxo,
    Joelle

  35. Loose, low, romantic and whimsical updos are my fave!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I wore my hair down on my wedding day, and wish that I had worn it up. I love those romantic looks with the bangs, yet a few loose pieces falling.

    ReplyDelete
  37. These are wonderful looks! I love the super redhead's look and the braided back look.... so pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  38. all gorgeous styles!! i wore mine up because of the heat, but i really wanted long, loose curls.

  39. I like the photo you chose with the bangs and the white flower, but I also love the half up/half down look! You will look gorg no matter which style you choose :)

  40. These are so gorgeous, I love all of them! I think the braids are my favorite though xo

  41. Love love love the Carrie Underwood updo.

  42. Love, love, love the retro styles, and you'd look darling in a high, full bun!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I definitely like the first one! Love the volume! xo Lisa

  44. My wedding hairdo was almost exactly like the one on the top right, except I added a rhinestone band behind my bangs for some sparkle since I skipped having a veil. It held up well, even as it fell a bit, since my hair is super straight and heavy.

    I'm really glad I made an appointment with my stylist for her to just play and help me see how the pictures I'd saved would or wouldn't work with my hair.

  45. Updos aren't my fav but as long as they're loose and not overdone....I'm into them. These photos are all FAB.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love the bangs with the flower and the redhead with the low side bun. If I was getting married I would go with the low side bun or down and wavy :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. That second style is so my speed!

    ReplyDelete
  48. im partial to hair down but those braided dos are so CUTE!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I am absolutely in love with the braided styles. They're so romantic and feminine but not too "done up" you know? If it were me getting married, I'd rock the braid. :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Definitely down & wavy is the way to go! Great inspiration photos.
    Hope you're having a great week!

  53. the 2nd and 4th photos are my favorite. i love that you're going to keep your bangs!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Loving the retro styles...they would work perfectly with your bangs :) I am definitely do mine up...I am thinking a lower side-ish pony...soft, feminine, romantic with side-swept bangs :) xoxoxo brynn

    ReplyDelete
  55. i would definitely play around with some styles beforehand. i love carrie's style, but i can tell from your blog posts that you could rock the redhead's style :-)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love all of them! I love hair down with loose curls! xoxo

  57. for my wedding it was really important to me that i looked like myself. too many weddings had i seen where the bride was barely recognizable. there's nothing more creepy than so much makeup and hairspray that you look like a plastic doll on your wedding day, a day that is suppose to celebrate the union of two unique people. i did the messy side bun, something a friend did for me, which looked like a glammed up version of what i would do myself on any other day. it was perfect. i also love it when brides do some sort of relaxed updo, and then let their hair down for the dancing. that is one fun bride in my book! :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Ahhh I wish my hair would grow faster so I can sport one of these great hairstyles for my wedding...:-)

    ReplyDelete
  59. ooooh pretty pretty! the carrie is a classic but i do love the one on the right with the bangs & the flower! i must say though... i think the dress dictates the hair! ;) can't wait!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Such gorgeous hair! You couldn't go wrong with any of those styles...and you have fab hair to work with!
