It’s time to complete your bridal look just in time for your summer wedding. Choosing how you want to style your hair on your wedding day is one of the second most important aspects you should cross off your list after buying your wedding dress. There are so many styles to choose from, and we know it can get confusing because that photo you fell in love with on Pinterest, is a style you have never tried before, would you be as spontaneous on your wedding day? The major dilemma most brides face is the choice of having their hair up or down this season? Today’s post will help you find a hairstyle that is perfect.
Tips for choosing a Wedding Hairstyle
I recommend that your experiment with different styles before making a final decision. Do not change your hair colour or length for a trial, the last thing you want to do is make a drastic change to your hair that you may end up regretting.
For starters, do your research create a folder or a Pinterest board with your favourite bridal looks, ones that you can picture your self rocking on your wedding day. Once you have a few different selections to choose from visit your hair salon, and ask the stylists for a trail session. Take your time deciding, have a friend or relative take photos for you to remember each style. You do not need to make an instant decision, even though your stylist might push you to decide, remember this is your special day and no body else’s you need to be comfortable with what you choose.
Depending on the time of year you’re getting married will also affect your hair, if you’re having a summer wedding you may choose to go for sun-kissed highlights, if you’re getting married in the winter opt for something darker to make more of a statement. In terms of products, you may need extra products control for summer weddings to escape humidity levels affecting your bridal look. Be sure to fill your stylist in on all the important aspects of your day i.e. Outdoor Wedding/Indoor Wedding, Winter/Summer etc.
Match your dress
The style of the dress you have chosen will play a big part in the type of hairstyle you choose. Consider the neckline of your dress, is it strapless? if so a half up or one side hairstyle would compliment the dress (Remember you want your hair to compliment the dress, and not over shine). If you’re wearing something with a high neckline your hair will look better in an undo. A lot of brides may decide to grow their hair out for their wedding day in order to achieve the perfect undo, there is no harm in that but remember ladies you can always add extensions to achieve the look you’re aiming for. If you’re wearing a traditional and formal wedding dress, something with sleeves, then opts for a classic chignon or French pleat that will suit your look to perfection. You can always add detail with a sparkly comb or accessory.
Take into consideration your hair type when choosing a style. If you have fine hair, then now is the time to invest in hair extensions, this will add volume and length to your hair, which in return will perfect your bridal undo, or half up style.
Once you have narrowed down a specific style, think of how you can accessories it. Add sparkle with a Tiara or a hair comb. Floral detail is this seasons top picks for brides, whether you are using real or fake flowers, you can incorporate many designs such as flower crowns, or a classic look for a destination wedding is tucking an exotic local bloom behind your ear for a ‘just walked off the beach’ look.
Enjoy all the different styles available, and make sure you’re happy and convinced with the style you finally choose. Remember, your husband wants to recognise you as you walk down the aisle!
