Not sure what to do with your hair on your wedding day? We love these 10 easy half-up hairstyles that will look beautiful on any bride.

When it comes to your wedding day hair, you want it to look like your style but don’t want to be fussing over it all day. Opt to skip the formal updo or the long flowing waves for these chic and easy half-up hairstyles that work for every hair length and bridal style.

Fishtail Crown: Master the messy-chic look with a fishtail braid. The best thing about this style is that it doesn’t have to be absolutely perfect to look great.

Half Up Knot: This half-up knot works for all hair types. Start by using a curling iron to give your hair volume and texture and then pull it back off your face then secure it with a clear elastic band and voila!


Mohawk Inspired Waves: Combine beach waves with pretty braids for an enchanted look that is great for boho brides. The middle braid is a uniquely gorgeous touch that gives this style a little something special.

Khaleesi Inspired Twist: Game of Thrones‘ fan girls will be thankful for this DIY style that is simple and stunning. By looping your ponytail through itself, you can instantly create a stylish twist.

Bobby Pin Triangle: This look is great for brides with shorter hair. Pull a few pieces back and secure them into place with colorful bobby pins for a fun, geometrical look.

Pulled Back Messy Waves: This almost pony tail is great for brides with long thick hair that don’t want to hide it in a bun or updo. Let your locks flow down you back by securing them at the nape of your neck and allowing a few wisps to fall free.

Celtic Knot: This knotted ‘do is much easier than it looks, trust us. Practice makes perfect and the result is definitely worth the effort.

Twists and Curls: A little twist goes a long way with this classic half-up style. The detailed mini twist adds an extra detail to this traditional look.

Faux Hawk: Sleek and sophisticated, this look keeps your hair out of your face while still giving the look and feel of wearing your hair down.

Waterfall Braid: Loosen up your style with this halo type braid that looks great from every angle. Be sure to secure it with several bobby pins so that your twists stay in place all day long.
