If there's anything we've learned from poring over the most popular wedding trends on Pinterest, it's that modern-day brides-to-be are prioritizing comfort and a laid-back, yet sophisticated style when it comes to their big day. Not only does this trend apply to high-neck wedding dresses that let brides move freely, and flats that allow them to truly enjoy their first dance, but it's also reflected in the most popular wedding hairstyle for 2018. According to Pinterest, "messy updos" have spiked in search volume a whopping 1,247 percent from January 2017 to January 2018.

To go along with the messy updo, Pinterest uses are also looking for pretty hair combs, with search for the trendy accessory up 89 percent this year.
