We all know that most women consider their wedding day one of the important days of their life. Attention to detail is a must, and everything has to be perfect. So once you have the perfect dress, its time to think about the perfect hair. It is important to start thinking about it as early as possible to allow the hair to grow out as an option for the wedding. If this hasn’t been done or is not an option, you can always purchase a set of human hair extensions. Having longer hair will allow for more leeway in selecting wedding hair styles. Obviously there are many ways you can style your hair on your wedding day, but three of the most prominent and traditional styles are the updo, long hair styles and medium-length hair styles. Each of these can be worn with accessories such as flowers, tiaras or rhinestones.
One consideration for choosing your wedding hairdo is if it compliments your wedding outfit, from the gown to the shoes. For example, a simple wedding dress demands an equally uncomplicated style. The do should also match the ambience of the wedding itself; if you’re having a formal, traditional ceremony, you should select a style that reflects this.
An up do style involves putting the hair up using pins; it can be worn with both long and medium-length hair. One advantage of this style is that you can wear it up during the wedding itself, and then take out the pins to create a second look for the reception.
Long wedding hair styles involve the hair worn down at least to the shoulders. It is one of the most versatile styles because there are a variety of ways it can be worn from wavy locks to long and flowing with curls and even a ponytail.
For a more modern alternative, however, the bride can go for a short hair style which will give her a sassier look. Accessories such as a coronet can be added to give the do a touch of elegance.
Some tips for achieving the perfect wedding hair styles:
- Bring pictures of the style that you want to give to your stylist. Search bridal magazines and the internet for a guide to show your hair dresser.
- Begin practicing good hair care several months before the wedding to ensure that your hair is healthy when it is ready to be styled.
- Don’t neglect your overall appearance. Make sure that your make-up is natural looking and you get a facial to remove the signs of tension from the wedding preparations.
- Plan ahead. Make sure to meet with your hairstylist several weeks in advance to start discussing the style, as well as other considerations such as the right color if you’re thinking of dying your hair for the wedding. And allow yourself enough time on the day itself to have your make-up and hairstyling done without rushing.
