I know that Etsy is a font of wedding style inspiration, but it didn't occur to me until I was browsing the shop of veil and bridal accessory designer Tessa Kim yesterday that the site can also be a great resource for wedding hairstyle inspiration. The models wearing Tessa Kim's birdcage veils and fascinators are also sporting some very lovely updos—one of my favorites was the chignon pictured above. I love the volume at the crown and the loopy, wavy bun (see the hairstyle from the front angle here). The bonus is that you also get to see how the hairstyle will look when paired with a veil or wedding-appropriate hair accessory (not always the case with celebrity-inspired updos). Want more?
