If there’s one place you’re sure to find wedding hair inspiration it’s on the runway–where modern ‘dos and innovative twists on classic styles are equally coveted. Designers like Jason Wu and Valentino gave the braid a major push during their Spring 2013 and Spring 2012 shows respectively. Braids were seen in various incarnations from updos to cascades and, yes, even as an accent to a short coif. Another hot wedding hair trend? Glamorous designs inspired by the roaring ’20s. Thanks to the late release of The Great Gatsby (due out next summer), hairstylists went above and beyond and re-created old Hollywood-inspired looks with a few modern twists. Brides seeking sweet and simple styles are also in luck: ponytails were highly received at recent runway shows including Marc Jacobs and Jenny Packham.
Want wedding hair with a super-natural look and a nice glossy finish? Look to Hollywood. Julianne Moore and Claire Danes, who were spotted on the red carpet at this year’s Emmy’s wearing their locks down, are a testament that leaving your wedding hair loose can be just as beautiful as ever. From braids to ponytails to simple tresses and a few other romantic wedding hair trends, consider any one of these 20 gorgeous styles for your wedding day.
