There are plenty of different types of chignons to play around with which means you can get this look with just about any type of hair!

For the elegant bride, this one’s a must!

High ballet bun

If you’re someone who likes their bun to be a little higher, then you might go for the high ballet bun. This style is particularly great for brides with high-neck dresses as it helps to get your hair up and off your shoulders.

The high ballet bun is also easy to add fullness too. You might even go for a minimalist hair accessory like pearls or a small tiara.

Undone half-up braid

This style is perfect for the boho bride. It combines two popular styles: the half-up, and half-down look with a beautiful braid. 

You can make this particular style as polished or undone as you like. But there’s something extra special about an undone look! Either way, you’re going to get your hair up and off your face while still having the majority of your hair down.

Flipped ends

This has to be the cutest and trendiest hairstyle on our list! If you have a bob or even a mid-length hairstyle, flipping out the ends adds a special touch to your overall look.

The top of your hair remains smooth and sleek while the bottom gets flipped out for a fun and flirty look. You might also go for a deep side part to make this one look extra elegant. Either way, a hair straightener is going to be your best friend for this one!

Wedding ponytail

If you’re looking to get your hair all the way up without putting it in a bun, then a ponytail is a great option. You might try a low ponytail with hair tied around the elastic band to hide it. This is a super chic look that can help to emphasize the back of your dress. 

If you have shorter hair, then there’s always the option to add extensions in order to get the long ponytail of your dreams!

Beautiful long braids

We’ve seen braids styled in so many different ways over the years, but 2023 brings a long, detailed braid down the back. You might go for an intricate French braid with added touches of flowers throughout. There are tons of different ways to add accessories to your braid. Either way, the bridal braids are here to stay!

90s style updo

Stealing looks right out of the 90s? You bet!

The 90s are back in a big way, especially when it comes to Pamela Anderson’s iconic updo. You might recreate this look for your wedding day by piling your hair onto the top of the head and leaving a bunch of face-framing pieces loose. 

The more tousled and undone, the better for this hairstyle.

Tiny brains and a bun

We’ve all seen the tiny Hailey Bieber braids become a big hair trend over the last year. But did you ever think of taking this trend and making it bridal? Create some micro-braids starting near the frame of your face and pull them back into a beautiful, sleek bun.

You can also make this hairstyle a little more laid back by pulling out face-framing pieces and going for a looser bun.

Deep side part


The center part has become more popular in recent years, but a deep side part can add a lot of WOW-factor to your overall look. Start your side part as deep as possible without it looking too thin on one side over the other.

From there you can add bouncy and sleek curls or go for straighter locks. Either way, this old Hollywood look is simply stunning.

Waves and hair accessories

If you ask us, waves are a hairstyle that will always be on trend! You can add to your beautiful waves by adding some glamourous hair accessories. Flowers and gems are always great, but pearls are definitely making a statement for 2023. 

A little extra touch to your hair can go a long way when it comes to your overall look.

Shaggy bun for curly hair

Embrace your natural curls with the shaggy bun! Toss the hair up on top of your head and use pins to secure it in place. Allow for your curls to hang loose near the front of your head for a tousled and lovely look.

We like to think of this one as an elevated, everyday look.

Slicked back half-up half-down

One of our favorite bride hairstyle trends for 2023 is the slicked back half-up, half-down. Style the half-up, half-down look with some strands left out to frame the face. Then slick back the rest of your hair for a super romantic look. Slicking back the hair will help it to feel clean and polished.

Modern French Twist


The French twist has always been a classic, but it’s time to make it 2023!

You can think of this one as a slightly undone version of the classic hairstyle, which helps it to feel a lot more effortless. Start by curling the hair for some texture and then sweeping it into the French twist. You can pull our hair near the front of the face to help mess it up a little.

Bun with a bow

The bow is another trend that’s made a big comeback in recent years – especially oversized bows! Try putting your hair into a nice, high elegant bun and then adding your bow just beneath it. Make sure you secure your bow really well so it doesn’t get away from you as you walk down the aisle!

Old Hollywood waves

An addition to the deep side part we talked about above, you might go for Hollywood waves as well. Pin each curl so it can set and then use a wide-tooth comb to brush it out after you take out all the pins. Give it a good spray and you’ll have the most romantic look ever!

Floral headpiece

Flower crowns are still something we’re seeing as a trend going into 2023! Flowers can help to add volume to the hair and are always a beautiful touch to any bridal look.

Be sure to choose something that’s going to match the vibe of your wedding

Wispy bangs

Wispy bangs are simple but so chic at the same time! You should cut your bangs well ahead of your wedding to ensure they’re something you love. 

Once you’re happy with them you can create your bridal hairstyle around them. You could wear your hair down and simple, slicked back into a clean bun, or even half-up, half-down.
