60 Best Hairstyles of This Wedding Season
Expert hair stylist and owner of Twisted Scissors Salon Jessica Shults says, “Picking that perfect hairstyle for your wedding day can start as early as finding your dress. You can decide if you want your hair completely swept up or grazing your shoulders depending on whether or not your dress is strapless. Once you’ve picked a wedding hairstyle, it’s time to know what to do on D-Day. A good tip for styling your hair that day is to not have it freshly washed. I recommend you wash your hair the night before so that it has a little grip the next day that holds curls and other styles longer.”
Now that you know a few secret expert tips, let’s get into these surreal wedding hairstyles!
1. Waterfall Braids With Soft Wavy Ends
As the name says, this hairstyle resembles a waterfall because only a portion of the hair is braided while the rest flows down the back freely. The secret to pulling off this hairdo is to create a simple side braid. Then, reserve a portion of the braid for the waterfall effect. Next, take up a few strands of hair from the reserved portion to braid further.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many weeks before the wedding should you cut your hair?
Many stylists recommend getting your haircut 3–4 weeks before your wedding day. As your big day draws closer, you will get too pressed for time to go for a last-minute cut that does not sit well. A few weeks will help your fresh haircut settle nicely and get used to a good pre-wedding hair care routine.
Should I dye my hair before the wedding?
If you want to dye your hair for your wedding day, make sure you do it 7–10 days before the day. Freshly dyed hair needs some time to bleed out the excess and settle nicely.
