Bangs demand attention, and the women who wear them can't help but make a, well, bang wherever they go—especially when it's floating down the aisle. We love a bride with bangs, so we rounded up this collection of wedding hairstyle ideas just for ladies with face-framing fringe. If bangs are your signature look, there's no need to start growing them out the moment that engagement ring is slipped on your finger.

Luckily, there's a layered 'do to suit every face shape, hair type, and personal style. Whether short and blunt, long and wispy, or sweetly side-swept, hairstyles with bangs are practically limitless. And as far as wedding hairstyles with bangs are concerned, the options are just as endless. An undone updo with soft fringe is effortlessly romantic. Meanwhile, smooth side-swept bangs and tons of volume is a totally glamorous option. A super-short crop makes a cool-girl statement. Textured and tousled bangs and a floral accessory tote major bohemian vibes. And brides can go for modern elegance with a classic chignon, accented with wispy strands.

A Layered Look

This bride's brow-grazing bangs flawlessly blend into the rest of her layers, ending in a sleek braid. The loosely gathered plait allows some of the locks to create a soft curtain around her face instead of being dramatically pulled back in a slightly harsher style.

Accent with Florals


Sara Lobla

This bride's fringy ponytail is romantic yet relaxed. The monochromatic crimson headband adds a youthful appearance and ties in with the scarlet accents in her bouquet.

If you love a flower crown moment, play with the positioning of the headpiece to switch up the look. Place it atop your head for a whimsical and romantic aesthetic, opt for a more vertical approach for a sporty feminine headband, or pull the circle of blooms below your hairline, just onto your forehead, for a cool-girl retro vibe.

Eyes on the Prize

Bride and bridesmaids

Golden Hour Studios 

Smooth, glossy fringe that hits just at your brows draws attention to your eyes and emphasizes those sky-high cheekbones. The high bun also draws the eye upward, making this bride's fabulous features the star of the show.

A high updo, like a bun or ponytail, can also elongate the neck and showcase any beautiful details in your dress's neckline, back, or bodice that would otherwise be hidden behind long locks. A statement earring is a great way to accessorize these styles as it commands attention to the same areas.
