8 Stunning snake braid styles for bridal hair inspiration

Want a twist on your wedding day hair style? Snake braids are the answer


A snake braid sounds a lot more intimidating than it really is. It’s nothing but an alternative version of a regular braid that kind of looks like – wait for it – a snake. It’s very easy to create, and very flexible to incorporate into different kinds of hairstyles. Here are a few ideas of how to make it work for you on your wedding day.

1. HALF UP, HALF DOWN

A great way to frame some beachy, flowing waves.

6. MIDWAY TRANSFORMATION
