Finding the perfect hairstyle can be an anxiety-ridden task on any day but it is especially nerve wrecking for any bride-to-be on her big day. Your first choice may not be the hairstyle that is chosen if you do not have a wedding dress already picked out. If you have an idea of the style of the neckline of your wedding dress in mind this decision will be more clear when browsing wedding hairdos.

Before falling down the endless rabbit hole of searching through a myriad of photos, take a look at the 8 most popular bridal hairstyles listed below.

Sure there are options of adding hair extensions but if you aim to keep a natural and simplistic look there are various options to pump up a bob!
5. Pixie Cut
With the third feminist wave, Millennials have been chopping off their long locks of hair and dying it all colors of the rainbow. Many Brides that are not afraid of hair dye stick to pastel colors for their wedding. There is no unofficial rule that your hair has to be pastel-colored but it is a current trend amongst millennial brides. If you happen to be a bride that doesn’t care for traditions for tradition’s sake, any hair color is an option to consider. Flower crowns, which could be made as a DIY bridal party activity with your bridesmaids as a bonus, are very flattering against uniquely colored hair. Another fashionable trend is to dye your hair with multicolored pastel hair dye for a whimsical appeal.
6. Curly Short updo
If wild and in charge colors for your hair is a bit much for your wedding day, you can execute the same pixie cut updo with a natural color more fitted for your personal style. You do not have to have long hair or even extensions to enjoy an elegant updo. Lots of hairpins and hairspray are your best friends when slaying this look.
