When it comes to your wedding day, it’s easy to overthink things. Sure, it’s one of the biggest days of your life (gulp), but that doesn’t mean you can’t take it easy on at least some of the details. When you already have enough to stress over, taking the less-is-more approach to your wedding-day hairstyle is the way to go. Enter: The ponytail wedding hairstyle.
Just hear us out. Ponytails get a bad rap for being basic, and while they may be our go-to on lazy days and trips to the gym, that doesn’t mean we can’t step up the style when the occasion calls. Trust us, it just requires a little strategy. And besides, when every detail of your day is planned to the tee, a laid-back pony is the perfect way to strike a balance. Think of it this way: You won’t have to wake up extra early in order to make it to the altar on time! (You’ll thank us when you don’t have to pack the concealer on those dark circles.) It’s time our beloved ponytail gets the credit it deserves.
If you’re thinking the sporty style isn’t wedding-day appropriate, think again, because we have the photos to prove it. Ahead, 20 ponytail updos for weddings, pretty enough for the big day and beyond.
