 There's a trend toward innovative hairdressing whether you opt to ditch the veil or not. Once you've found your wedding dress, topping off your look is typically the next detail to dressing the part. Not every bride feels right doing the veil, some are going for smaller headpieces, hats or wearing nothing at all. For those of you skipping the cake top template of hairstyles, we have some innovative looks from hairdresser Kathie Rothkop of Salon Glam in Novato, California.  "I get inspired by the style of the gown and type of woman wearing it.  Then there's the time of year of the wedding, says Kathie. "I put women in 4 categories. Sporty, classic, romantic and edgy. A sporty woman would want hair very simple, probably short and tailored. Her wedding dress would be stream-lined. Classic would be very traditional, maybe a french twist, no ornamentation. Grace Kelly was a classic beauty. Romantic is my favorite. Lots of bling, flowers, height, softness and curls. Goldie Hawn and Katherine Zeta Jones are good examples of this. Edgy is non traditional, Lady GaGa really is this look."

A little 1960s Mod Chic! This wired, white ribbon weaves in and out of Lauren's bun forming ringlets. Great pair up for most any wedding dress- even short and mini styles.
