10 Dec HOW TO CHOOSE A HAIRSTYLE FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY
Choosing your wedding hairstyle may not seem as important as finding the perfect bridal gown but a winning hairstyle can make a huge difference to your overall look and complement your outfit! But how do you work out which style to go with?
Consider the style of your bridal outfit
A crucial step to working out which wedding hairstyle to opt for is knowing what you are going to be wearing! For example, a high neck line with intricate details may get lost if your hair is down, so a soft bun hairstyle that accentuates the neck may be the way to go.
Does your bridal outfit have a plunging neckline or open back? These styles often allow room for a relaxed hair-down style!
Do you want a slick, sophisticated hair style to complement an Audrey-Hepburn look, or is your outfit more of a relaxed, boho wedding style where wavy hair may be better suited?
You also need to take into consideration the length of your hair. If you are wanting long hair for your wedding, you need to factor this in to your planning. However, there is always the option of hair extensions to achieve your ultimate look and add more volume if you have thin hair.
Decide on major accessories
Another important factor to consider, is whether you will be wearing jewellery and a headpiece. Are you going for subtle jewellery or a statement piece? If you are wearing bold jewellery or a statement hair accessory, you want to make sure it stands out so factor this into your hair styling!
How long will it need to last?
It may take hours to achieve the perfect hair do and only seconds or minutes for it to fall out! Something to consider is the location of your venue and how long your hair needs to last the way you want it. For example, if your wedding is primarily outside or on the beach, it can be quite windy which can unravel hairstyles with beautiful curls very quickly. You may even have a battle with photos and wind – think hair in your face or stuck to your lipstick. In these instances, having a hair style that is neatly and securely tied up may work better and avoid any hair in your face moments!
