Full Answer

There are numerous variations on these bridal hair styles. The braid, for example, can be styled to wrap around the head, rest at the nape of the neck or to trail down the back. A half-up half-down hair style can be achieved with a waterfall braid, a half pony tail or by twisting back the top layer of hair from the sides of the head. Women with shorter hair are likely to find that leaving their curled hair down with some sort of flower accent or headband is both beautiful and easy.

Loose or full curls can be added to any hairstyle, especially a chignon, for a romantic look. Flowers, individually or in a crown, are also useful for giving a gentle and pretty look to a hair style, especially a braid. Headbands of all sizes are also common, particularly when accompanied by a ballerina bun or with hair left down. A dramatic flair can be achieved with a poof at the top of the head.
