11 Bridal Hairstyles That Look Even Better With a Ribbon

A simple accesory can make all the difference

Natalia Ibarra

When it comes to our favorite bridal hairstyles, less is more—but there's one small hair accessory that can take a look from pretty to gorgeous. We're talking about a classic hair ribbon. Whether your wedding day hairstyle of choice is loose waves or a raked back updo, a small piece of ribbon can transform your 'do (You can even easily pair a satin bow with a hair accessory for the ultimate romantic beauty vibe). They key is to loop the ribbon into a loose bow, or skip the bow altogether, to give your look a modern, less juvenile effect. When it comes to picking the perfect piece of ribbon you can make it personal and pick a piece of trim from your favorite dress or a relative's wedding dress. You can also opt for a monogrammed moment with a bow from Lelet. Either way, there are countless ways to incorporate a ribbon into your bridal hairstyles and we've got just the inspiration you need.
