We love us some DIYed wedding hairstyles. Even for those of us without mad hair skills (cough — like me — cough), using hair accessories, headpieces, fascinators, adding in flowers, and rocking a sleek updo are all ways to make fabulous hair come easy.
We've compiled a collection of some spectacular DIY wedding hairstyles to hack yourself, take in to your stylist, or just keep on hand (or bookmarked in your phone) in case you end up sans hairstylist on the day-of and have to handle your own hair. It doesn't have to be scary, I promise. I even tried one out myself (the messy French twist!). Here's the proof.
This triple-braided bun is great for medium to long hair and only takes some braid and clip skills.
These side-swept curls are great for natural black hair and naturally curly hair. Clip up both sides for a faux hawk!
Messy French twist
I took on the challenge of trying this messy French twist out myself since it looked so hypothetically easy. No joke, it WAS easy. If you have someone else folding it over, I'm sure it would look much nicer (and less tornado-y), but even doing it alone was pretty simple:
This bouffant bun is more forgiving than it looks.
Here's another take on vintage curls — retro fingerwaves:
These milkmaid braids for short hair utilize a few extensions to take them to the next level of boho loveliness.
Here's a version of milkmaid braids with a little height and sideswept bangs:

YES: an easy twist updo for short hair that totally achieves full updo status.
I love a good short hair style hack.
Fancy five-strand braid
This five-strand braid was one that I challenged myself to do but didn't exactly succeed. Definitely try it yourself, though, since it should just take a little practice.
Chunky two-strand flat twist updo

Flat twist faux hawk
I totally mentioned a faux hawk before, and now I'm following through on it.
Take a look at this flat twist braided faux hawk.
