This fashion-forward wedding hairstyle isn't for every bride, but if your style is unconventional (i.e. you're the type to wear a Bianca Jagger-inspired white Alexander McQueen pantsuit), I think this texturized chignon would look divine. "The chignon is a classic hairstyle that every bride can wear, no matter the look or feel of the wedding, since it can be worn in a variety of ways—smooth, messy, in the middle, swept off to the side," says Sal Malafronte of Salon Mario Russo in Boston, who created this look (along with makeup artist Diane Mammola). "For this particular chignon, I combined both classic and modern elements—it's a look that I think would be appropriate for a modern, consciously on-trend bride, rather than someone looking for a simple hairstyle." Would you wear this wedding hairstyle?
