For the do it yourselfer this would entail parting the hair down the middle fron the front of the forehead back to the crown.

The front of the hair, or the up part can be worn slicked back and straight, parted down the middle, or over to the side in a sweeping bang.

The next tip with regards to bridal hairstyles are the use of the clip in pony tails that are available on the market, or taking long hair and researching different types of pony tails that may fit the celebration.

A pony tail can be worn high on top of the head with hair that hangs straight or curly, down low at the base of the neck with the same two styles, or over to the side in a side pony that would be a great accent to a strapless wedding gown.

All of the above can be adorned with ribbon, lace, or various decorative options that will bring the level of the pony tail up to the elegant style needed for a wedding.

Short or long hair that is either pulled entirely back along the scalp line, or is simply pulled back to the crown, with straight or spiraled hair dangling around the facial features will round out the list and provide even more options for the selective bride.

The whole idea is to take the face and frame it with a strand or a multitude of strands that are straightened for a more sophisticated look and feel, or curled for a more traditional romantic look and feel.

Due to the fact that bridal hairstyles are so versatile these days, brides are lucky in that they are no longer limited to the same conventional style that everyone else must wear as well.

Whether the hair is long or short, or curly or straight, there is a style to fit every personality and allow a modern day bride to really stand out and shine.
