A casual undone hairstyle will be popular for many brides in 2014.

A naturally-looking hairstyle is perfect if you want to embrace the celebrations and enjoy your friends and family without a drastic change in your appearance.

If you prefer the natural look on your wedding day, you might like to try the casually styled chignon or leave your hair undone. If you do opt for a simple hairstyle you might like to use a little hair wax or extra-gloss hairspray to create beautiful shine and lustre to your hair.

Traditional hairstyles with playful twisted/braided elements are a beautiful accessory to your wedding dress.

Typically, romantic brides prefer traditional styles and feminine features; combined with soft colours and nude makeup. More recently romantic brides like to include a few eye-catching brightly coloured elements and eccentric modern accessories, for a modern twist.

Romantic weddings tend to have elaborate details, playful designs and romantic settings. The bride’s hairstyle will include beautiful braiding or sophisticated twisted hair elements, in either a simple ponytail or, more elaborately, in a braided hair crown.

Modern brides prefer contemporary hairstyles and strive for perfection. Clear forms and singular eye-catching features such as bright red lips or lace detail on the dress define the style of the modern bride. The styles are exceptional and will be noticed without being exaggerated or eccentric.

Modern brides love to plan their weddings themselves from the perfect gown to their makeup. Popular hairstyles include modern sleek looks and plain but stylish short haircuts. The hair is undone or gathered into a sleek ponytail, chignon or faux bob. If you are planning a summer wedding, alluring wet hairstyles are ideal.

Teased curls are the basis for a perfect extravagant hairstyle.

A wedding offers a unique opportunity for the bride to show her inventive style and confidence. Extravagant weddings tend to have unique details, creating a one-of-a-kind wedding to remember. While the wedding plans are big and ostentatious, they are executed with an acute sense of style.

Big hair with curls and plenty of volume, tend to be popular for extravagant weddings. Longer hair tends to be turned under to create a voluminous shorter style and a sixties hairstyle with quiff will also be an extravagant head-turner.

Brides have the choice of many chignon styles whether it’s romantic with a veil, built high in an extravagant updo, sleek or natural.

Chignons are easily adapted and can express the personality and style of almost any bride.

Old-fashioned veils can be easily attached to a high chignon for a traditional/romantic bridal look. Alternatively, if you opt for an extravagant chignon you may need to use hair pieces, to create extra volume. However, naturally styled high chignons are easy and quick to style and work well for modern brides with or without jewellery or hair accessories.

In his video, Armin Morbach demonstrates how to style three variations of the classic chignon.
