As women, we know all too well how a bad hair day can put a damper on an otherwise perfect mood. On your wedding day, it’s especially important to sport a hairstyle you love. Check out this compilation of gorgeous hair ideas we hope will inspire you:

No matter the season, many modern brides spruce up their wedding ’do with a flower tiara. Above, the bride’s flower crown doubles as a way to complement her color scheme and beautiful bouquet.

You can personalize a tiara by incorporating your flowers, your wedding colors, and seasonal touches into its design. If this sweet and feminine idea interests you, you can find tiara ideas, DIY instructions, and purchase options by searching Pinterest and Etsy.

Accessories can add glam to any hairstyle. You can find a variety of hair accessories, usually handmade, by searching Etsy. I also love Lilla Rose, a company dedicated to sturdy, attractive, easy-to-use hair accessories.

For an outdoor or beach wedding, a casual lace headband as shown above can add a distinctly pretty touch to a sideways bun. I love the softness and femininity of this hairstyle (and pretty much everything else about it!) For further inspiration, check out the portfolio at Hair and Makeup by Steph, which is full of beautiful photography and hairstyle ideas.

Don’t underestimate the gorgeousness of a head full of lovely curls as shown above. If you’re thinking about wearing your hair down, consider your wedding venue and expected temperatures. Wearing your hair down may not be best for a hot summer outdoor wedding, and breathtaking curls may not look so glorious after being exposed to humidity.
