Braids are so in right now, and this feminine take is an elegant way to incorporate them into your style, while still rocking loose, gorgeous waves. Best of all, this look works well with any style of gown! After you’ve curled your hair, start at the front of your head and create a braid on each side – then wrap each braid around the crown of the head across each other, using bobby pins to secure the braids into place, and finish by tucking the ends under your hair.


#2 Whimsical Pony

Sleek and simple, this style keeps your hair away from your face and will look amazing with a pair of statement earrings. Start by styling hair with a large-barrel curling iron in order to create loose waves. This will give the pony a more polished look. Pull hair back and leave out a couple of pieces of hair in the front, then pull these pieces back and wrap them around the pony to hide the tie and create a natural look!


#3 Loose Updo

For a modern take on a formal look, go with a loose updo – a chic style that is the perfect choice to show off a dress with an open back! Start with loose waves and use a texturizing spray at the roots to add volume. Gather the hair at the nape of the neck and pin back in a low bun with bobby pins to keep the look casual. Pull out some face-framing pieces of hair as the finishing touch!

#4 Fishtail Braid

This boho-inspired look is casual yet stylish, and looks amazing with an off-the-shoulder design. Spray your hair with a texturizing spray in order to add some grip and volume to the hair before you start. Twist a front piece of hair and secure all the hair into a low side pony. Create a fishtail braid, secure with a clear elastic, and finish by pulling at the braid gently in order to fluff it and give it some volume!


#5 Glam Waves

This glam hairstyle will make you look like a bombshell! Evoke old Hollywood glamour by creating these polished waves. Start with a deep side part and use a curling iron to create large waves – the key is to curl the pieces of hair toward your face instead of away from it, giving a vintage look to the curls. Add lots of shine with a shine serum once you’re done, and make sure to smooth away any flyaways with hairspray to set the look and complete the polished look!
