From sleek and elegant chignons to tousled wavy boho braids, our gallery is bursting with bridal updos for wedding hair inspiration. And don't worry we have you covered for both long and shorter lengths.\r\n\r\nUpdo hairstyles are practical (no other style is quite as weatherproof!) as well as elegant. Wearing your hair up on your wedding day allows every showstopping detail of your dress and accessories to be on view.\r\n\r\n\r\nPinned Updo\r\n\r\nSoft, romantic and ethereal, a pinned updo is perfect for most hair types and makes it a universally flattering wedding hairstyle.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAccessories and Headpieces\r\n\r\nHair vines, combs, pins and grips, there are a wealth of hair accessories available to accentuate your wedding hair updo. For boho brides, you can\u2019t beat a hair vine wrapped into a soft braided updo, while delicate pins are great if you want to keep the look understated and elegant.\r\nWe love seeing a bride shake it up and swap accessories and hairstyles for the evening reception.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nFlowers\r\n\r\nFlorals and foliage are effortlessly romantic and ideal for brides and bridesmaids alike. Pin greenery into a loose chignon or weave flower heads through braids for a whimsical wedding updo.\r\nFlower crowns aren\u2019t just for down dos either, here we show you how they can be the ultimate accessory to your bridal updo.\r\nChat to your florist about which flowers will go the distance and be most suitable for your wedding hairstyle. Gypsophila is a popular choice as it doesn\u2019t wilt.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSmooth Chignons and Low Buns\r\n\r\nFor those preferring a refined updo then a pinned at the nape of the neck, low bun or chignon would be ideal. Our gallery shows you can rock this look with a side, middle or swept back parting. Twist, roll and tuck your way to the chicest wedding updo style.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nBraided Updo\r\n\r\nFor a more relaxed updo then braids and plaits could be for you. Braids can be incorporated into your bridal look in many different styles; tiny plaits weaved through the most elegant of updos, wrapped into neat milkmaid style plaits around the head, looser in boho braids or in a hair-up style created entirely from intricately woven braids.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nVeil\r\n\r\nIf you\u2019re opting for a gorgeous veil as part of your bridal style, it\u2019s an extra consideration when it comes to planning your wedding day hair.\r\nWith updos, it\u2019s completely up to you if you want to pin your veil above or below your hair. Our gallery shows at the nape of the neck or secured at the crown, you\u2019re guaranteed to look incredible.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nPonytail\r\n\r\nCool, chic and elegant, there\u2019s no doubt that pony tailed brides are fashion forward. Undone, volumised and edgy or sleek and classic, this wedding hairstyle can work either high or low. We love wrap around knots and loose tousled waved ponytails but we think our favourite has to be a ribbon tied bride.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nShorter Hair\r\n\r\nYou don\u2019t need to have tresses like Rapunzel to rock a bridal updo however you don\u2019t even necessarily need to opt for extensions either. Tight, close braids are a great choice for shorter haired brides or pin your longest lengths in a side-swept style.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nFinally, look out for lots more updos for wedding hair inspiration coming your way shortly!
