If you are looking for more sophisticated, glamorous hairstyles, braided ponytails are a great option. Braided hairstyles are a really popular wedding hairstyle option now. They will look even better if you have a lighter hair colour or highlights in your hair!

The varying types of braided designs add a really interesting element to your hair. You can opt for more intricate, tight braids or go for a more effortless, soft braided look.

Alternatively, go for clean ponytails if you want a more minimalistic look.
