A woman’s hair is said to be her crowing glory and the hairstyle you choose to have during your wedding day is the final crowing touch needed to achieve your dream wedding look.

In our last post, we showed you how wedding dresses have changed throughout the decades.  While the infographic we showed you did touch somewhat on wedding hairstyles throughout the decades, it only scratched the surface of what brides have been doing to make the most of their crowing glory for their dream wedding day.

Take a look at this video we found that offers a more in-depth look at how wedding hairstyles have changed and evolved during the past decades.  This video from BuzzFeed with hairstylist Kayley Melissa takes us on a quick tour of how brides have styled their hair from the 1960’s to the present.  They managed to squeeze in 50 years of hairstyles in just a little over 2 minutes!

Did you get all that? Are you inspired now? Well for a better, and slower breakdown of the different hairstyles, check out the BuzzSite link. 

After showing us the video BuzzSite then runs down the different decades and the looks accompanied with some nice gifs that will let you take your time and really take a close look at the styles and what they had to bring to the look and feel of brides through the decades.

Let’s break it down, shall we:

The 1960’s bride favored wedding hair in bouffants and updo’s.

The 1970’s bride looked to Farrah Fawcett who inspired feathery flips for their hair.

The 1980’s bride teased and permed her hair – especially the bangs.

The 1980’s bride liked cool decorative pieces like flower hair-clips in her hairdo.

The 1990’s bride started adding headbands but went back to chignons.

The bride of today? Likes flower crown and natural waves.

Of course all brides are different and each have their own style.  Our advice? Pick and choose the best bits from every decade or even the one decade that you really like to have a hairstyle that you want and that fits you.
