From chin-grazing bobs to shoulder-dusting lobs, medium-length hairstyles are taking the red carpet by storm. The low-maintenance look is flattering with all face shapes and hair types — and looks fresh and modern with a wedding dress. Here's three pretty ways to wear it on your big day.

Braided bun: Who says you need to have down-to-there hair to wear braids? Even Emma Stone's jaw-length bob works for this look. To get it, part your hair, then weave a braid on either side starting just above your ear. Secure the ends, then twist the braids together into a bun, tucking away the ends, and pinning it in place. Spritz with hairspray to keep everything in place.

Beachy waves: Easy, sexy, and oh-so-cool, piecey waves are perfect for the laid-back bride. To get Jessica Szhor's look, wrap small sections of hair around a 1-inch curling iron (don't open the clamp — that will create a curl that's too perfect and rigid), then spritz on a shine spray to tame frizzies and add a glossy finish.

Bouncy blowout: Salma Hayek's look is classic, glamorous — and easy to DIY! To get it, prep hair with a volumizer, then use a round brush and a blowdryer to smooth everything out section by section. Finish with a light-hold hairspray to help lock in the volume.
