6 Bridal Hairstyle Trends for 2023

Wedding season is fast approaching. If you’re a bride with an upcoming hair trial, you may be desperately searching for the right wedding hairstyle for you. As a 2023 bride, you should consider the top trending bridal hairstyles of the year, many of which include accessories like wedding headbands, wedding tiaras, and wedding hair combs

 1. Slicked back looks with middle parts

Have you heard? The side part is out! (Or so says Gen Z.) One of the core functions of a part is to shadow and contour your face in a way that compliments you the most. Thus, it only makes sense that the new middle part trend would make its way to the wedding hair world.

On the biggest day of your life, making sure your hair complements your face is essential! In 2023, brides are opting for slicked-back looks with middle parts. This simple hairstyle is ideal if you love a sleek and chic look to show off your gorgeous skin and beautiful makeup.

If you still want to dazzle with your hair pulled back, consider this Opal Swarovski Bridal Hair Side Piece.

2. Ponytails

Ponytails are a timeless look, and you can make use of this style in numerous ways on your wedding day. Whether you want a curly messy ponytail that sits low against your head, or you want a slick and straight high ponytail, you have lots of options. Some brides even like pairing ponytails with natural flowers, bows, broaches, or other accessories to make their hairstyle pop.

Thinking you want a fluffier, more laid-back pony for your wedding day? Consider a hair vine that delicately twists wire, crystals, pearls, and beads through your hair for a gorgeous effect. The Eclate Swarovski Hair Vine is one of our favorites.

3. Bridal bun with headband

Headbands are not only trendy embellishments that have come back into style over the last several years, but they’re also functional. If you’re worried about your hair falling into your face or being blown by the wind during an outdoor ceremony, opting for a bridal bun with a headband can ensure everything stays in place

Dazzle at your wedding with thick or thin headbands in silver, gold, or rose gold tones. The Alix Wedding Headband is an elegant slender option that’ll just give your bun a touch of sparkle. On the other hand, the Ellee Real Bride Adorned Fiona Swarovski Bridal Headband offers brides a much fuller headpiece that set off their entire look.

4. Half-up, half-down

Half-up, half-down never goes out of style. If you’re looking for a truly timeless look, this is your best bet. Personalize the look with a wedding hair comb at the crown of your head, or go for a wedding tiara (our pick is the Charlotte Swarovski Bridal Tiara) that signals to everyone that it’s your day.

5. Hollywood waves

Another timeless look, this hairstyle gives glam. Hollywood waves — also known as cascading waves — were made famous by Veronica Lake in the 1940s and have had a long history in Hollywood since. Some brides opt for an ornate clip or accessory on one side of their head — like the Ciana Swarovski Bridal Headpiece — while others go embellishment free.

6. Hair down with waves

This is a go-to look for brides that love their hair in either beachy or voluminous curls, and those who know they want their hair down on their wedding day. After you have a “hair down with waves” foundation, you can accessorize as desired. You can try different wedding headbands or hair combs to see if any match your dress, jewelry, or overall theme.

Here are a couple of our favorite pieces with waves: Nala Headband or Jacqueline Bridal Headpiece
