Vintage wedding hairstyles are always a popular choice for brides who love the classic, elevated looks first made famous by silver-screen legends like Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Brigitte Bardot. Styles like big, voluminous Old Hollywood waves, victory rolls, and dramatic updos adorned with old-fashioned pins and barrettes are the perfect choice for weddings because they’ve truly stood the test of time. These styles are also so different from what you typically do on a day-to-day basis, which makes them feel more special and formal.

A classic wedding hairstyle completes the vintage vision, along with romantic, period-appropriate makeup details.
