Your mom has stuck by your side through wedding appointment after wedding appointment and is always there to give her (occasionally unsolicited) opinion. It’s time to return the favor and help her figure out her own wedding-day style! But choosing a figure-flattering mother-of-the-bride dress is only half the task. Mom also needs to select a ‘do for the big day that’ll pull the whole look together. And this list of mother-of-the-bride hairstyles is exactly the place to start.
Does she lean towards a more traditional style? She’ll flip for a classic chignon. Did she already promise to break it down on the dance floor? Suggest a style that’ll keep her hair from falling in her face, like a half-up half-down hairdo. But no matter which of these mother-of-the-bride hairstyles catches mom’s eye, rest assured that none of them even come close to matronly. (In fact, can we just go ahead and ban that word from our vocabulary?)
Take the mother-of-the-bride dress into consideration. An updo will let an embellished neckline shine while wearing longer locks down looks gorgeous with off-the-shoulder gowns.
Forward these mother-of-the-bride hairstyles to your mom ASAP.
This intricate updo is created by first curling and then interlocking the loose ringlets and strategically pinning them to the top of the head. The style works well on a variety of hair lengths, too!
Have your stylist leave a couple of tendrils loose to frame your face, as this lovely lady has here, to keep the style from seeming stiff.

How gorgeous is this wrapped updo? It’s an undeniably special look fit for the most special of days. To help it hold, we recommend not washing your hair the night before the wedding. The extra bit of grit and oil will actually make it easier to style and for the look to hold from the ceremony to the last dance of the night.
