The fluffy, white meringue gown? Nah—she’s wearing a scarlet pantsuit. The traditional floor-grazing veil? Not gonna happen. Diamonds? Nope. Not every bride wants tried and true, borrowed and blue on her wedding day—some gals eschew tradition for something quirkier. And that includes the hair. From bold to Boho, to edgy takes on old standards, here are some of her picks for the non-traditional wives-to-be!
- FAUXHAWK UPDO
Can a hairstyle be edgy AND pretty? Here you go—a beautifully entwined Fauxhawk that is also flattering and photogenic.
- RETRO BARREL ROLL
This mix is “pin-up meets Gwen Stefani” and is perfect for an old-fashioned, non-traditional bride.
- SUPPORT SYSTEM
Out-of-the-box brides love exotic millenary, especially when it’s fashioned from unconventional materials like feathers, flowers or ferns. A solid support structure can be created for the headwear choices—one that can also stand alone when it’s time to doff the bonnet and dance!
- THE PILLOW HEAD BRAID
This one says, “I stayed out all night, woke up at noon and decided to get married.” Perfect for the free-spirited bride!
- ROCK ‘N’ ROLL INVERTED BRAID
Asymmetric texture divided by a ropey braid evokes avant-garde romance.
