Your wedding day is one of the most important (and photographed!) days of your life, so of course you want to have the perfect hairstyle. And there was no shortage of amazing wedding hair looks at this year's Bridal Fashion Week in New York. We've put together a collection of the most gorgeous new bridal hair ideas straight from the runway—they're practically guaranteed to inspire your wedding look.

Long, embellished braids at Reem Acra.

Lead stylist and Davines Master Ambassador Joseph DiMaggio created princess-long, slightly messy braids by incorporating extensions into models' natural hair. The finishing touch were pearl and crystal embellishments twisted through the braids, with iron-on silver stars adding even more sparkle to lengths.

Major volume at Theia.

This modern take on the classic Gibson Girl look is pure perfection. Loose curls are gently looped and pinned up high, with lots of small tendrils allowed to escape and dangle down. This keeps the look sexy and romantic, rather than overly-structured and helmetlike.

Crisp bows at Oscar de la Renta.

If your dream bridal hair is a sleek chignon, why not add some fun to it with a correspondingly sleek bow in the same fabric as your dress? We love how this structured ribbon adds interest to a very classic style without making it look juvenile or overly twee.

Sideswept waves and flowers at Carolina Herrera.

This gorgeously detailed hairstyle is retro-inspired without feeling costumey. Lightly waved hair is deep-parted and pinned into a low, twisted knot behind the ear. The addition of small flowers adds a dose of pure prettiness to this romantic hair look.

Loose waves at Badgley Mischka.

Updos tend to be the bridal hair trend of choice, but wearing your hair down is a totally gorgeous option as well. Use a 2" curling iron or hot rollers to recreate this look, brushing the curls out for romantic softness.

Ballerina buns and chic headbands at Monique Lhuillier.

Center-parted hair is pulled back in a low, coiled bun and ornamented with a delicate, sparkly headband. This is the perfect way to add some crownlike glamour to your hair look without going full-on prom queen; consider it the elegant version of the tiara.

Crowns at Naeem Khan.

But of course, sometimes you just want to let your inner Queen out. The handmade crowns at Naeem Khan accentuated the slightly undone, texturized bun. Get a similar, more wearable look with a headband that has lots of vertical height, rather than one that sits close to your hair.

Elaborate updos at Jean-Ralph Thurin. This beautifully coiled updo worn high atop the head is the perfect compliment to a bold red bridal lip. And the best part? If your hair is shorter or thin in texture, this style is easy to fake with extensions.

Flower crowns at Oscar de la Renta.

Who says flower crowns are just for teens at Coachella? Beautiful silk flowers in white or ivory make a gorgeous, grown up substitute for a veil, especially when worn with very sleek, tightly pulled back hair.

Messy curls at Angel Sanchez.

This sideswept, deconstructed bun (decorated with orchids) was definitely a standout look on the runway. A perfect updo for a bride who wants her hair pulled back without a hint of stuffiness.

Half-waves at Jenny Packham.

If you want a casual yet polished look for your wedding, look no further than these structured half-waves. Create this look with a wide-barreled waving iron, or simply loosely braid damp hair and let it air-dry. Voila! Perfectly bent, boho waves.
