Bridal Hairstyle Ideas for Straight Hair

When it comes to deciding on your look for your bridal hairstyle, straight hair will add smoothness and a touch of class to any ‘do and looks especially great when left out to flow over your shoulders, or styled into an updo. To see what we mean, here are some of our favorite choices for a straight wedding hairstyle.

Elegant Updo

A simple style like this would look perfect dressed with decorated hair clips and will give you the chance to show off your beautiful face on the big day.
