A tight low bun is a great option for a classic bridal look, especially in warmer months. Style it to the side so guests can see it when you’re facing front. We recommend this ‘do for summer nuptials.

3. Side-Swept Curls

Talk about a romantic look. Ask your hairstylist for waves or curls, and sweep them to the side. We think this style will compliment a lace dress perfectly.
