Wedding season is almost upon us (generally speaking, anything between late spring and early fall is considered to fall within “wedding season,” fyi). And if you’re a soon-to-be bride whose wedding happens to fall into those dates, you probably have one thing on your mind right now: your wedding day lewk.

The term “bridal hair” has found itself with a less-than-stellar reputation over the years because of its connotation as overly done, stiff pageant hair that reeks of hairspray. But it doesn’t have to be that way. These days, wedding day hair can be whatever you want it to be, and with so many different wedding aesthetics (and online inspiration) available at the ready, there are virtually infinite bridal hairstyles to choose from. So whether your wedding is rustic and outdoorsy, or sleek and modern, there’s a bridal hair look that is perfect for you.

We’ve rounded up some of the most stunning bridal hair inspo, courtesy of the biggest and best names in hair.

Hair accessories are so huge this year, particularly clips and bobby pins of the pearl variety, and what better time to load up on the trend than your wedding day?
