So, your big day is coming up, but you're stumped for inspiration on what to do with your hair! We don't blame you, finding natural bridal hairstyles requires a little more than a flick through Pinterest. So we've scoured the internet to find 10 stunning looks to consider for your wedding.
Considering that there's so much you can do with natural locks and the right styling products (and maybe a few hairpins here and there!) you're bound to find a style that suits you - and your dress - from this list. Browse the looks below:
A rustic take on an up-do - leave the hairspray behind and make use of those flyaways for this beautiful bohemian look. And to top it off with a touch of opulence, add a gold pin. Et voila: understated glamour!
Take the traditional bantu knot style and turn it into a cute and flirty look for your wedding day! This is the perfect look for highlighting your cherished wedding jewellery, or the neckline of your dress.
Short hair? A tiara is your ultimate accessory! Be the queen of your big day with a sparkling hair embellishment framing that up-do.
Take 'natural' to the next level by adding some of nature's finest gifts: flowers. Gypsophila (AKA Baby's Breath) is a wedding favourite because it symbolises everlasting love and pureness.
Prefer your flowers to be of the bejewlled kind? No worries? Ask your stylist for an up-do with a simple front and bouffant back, then add some cute clip-ins or a gorgeous jewelled headband to complete the look.
We adore the knotless braid look (read our lowdown on knotless braids here) - but have you thought about trialling them for your wedding style? Channel your inner Zoe Kravitz with this laid-back look!
Want something a little more polished? Work with layers of soft twists (and lots of hairspray) to recreate this beautiful up-do. Keep the front of you hair minimal, and make use of your favourite gel to keep those edges in place.
An up-do doesn't have to mean that the back of the hair gets all the interest. Create these stunning buns all the way down the centre of the hair, from hairline to hairline. Then finish off with the addition of flowers, or a clip-in hair accessory!
Accentuate that afro with a mix of gold accessories. Gold isn't just the colour of money, it also symbolises illumination and passion - plus, it reflects the light, making your wedding portraits shine!
Colourful hair isn't just reserved for carnival! Weave some silver or pastels into your braids for a unique bridal hairstyle; you can even coordinate with your dress if you're opting for all-over colour.
