Don’t say “I do” until you’ve seen our top 50 bridal hair looks

It’s the big day. You’ve got the ring/dress/life partner on lockdown. But the bridal hair… just so many options, and it needs to:
a) look good in all the photos
b) stay in place while Auntie Nell squeezes the lifeforce out of you for the third time, and
c) last all night while you’re strutting your stuff to Beyonce on the dancefloor (because who doesn’t play Single Ladies ironically at a wedding nowadays?)

It’s a huge decision, so we’ve lovingly edited this selection of 50 hair brideas (get it?) to help you make the choice that will last forever more on Facebook. We’ve taken into account style staying power, the view from behind that guests will see and possible veil/hair do interface. We didn’t know what was on your gift registry, so consider THIS our present to you. You’re very welcome – salut!
