A bride’s wedding is one of the biggest days in a women’s life. She spends a lot of time thinking about her big day and wants everything to be perfect. Since the bride tends to become the center of attention during the wedding, she wants to look her most beautiful. This includes her dress, her make-up and her hair. Your hairstyle should be thought out long before the big day. You should get with your stylist no less than two months before the big day, but preferably 6 months before the wedding day. This should give you and your stylist plenty of time to work out the best color and style for you and give you enough time to let your hair grow out if needed.
There are many options for your hair. You may want to wear your hair pulled up into an updo. Updo’s are very popular and traditional for weddings. You may choose a polished updo or a loose messy updo. A polished updo has all of your hair pulled back into a smooth bun usually at the crown. You may also choose to have your bangs swept to the side instead of pulled back sleek. This is a very sophisticated look. If you prefer a messy updo pull your hair back leaving more body and bounce to it. This look tends to bring the face to the forefront.
You may also choose to leave your hair down and breezy. This is a less formal look and works beautifully for a casual beachy style wedding. Hair can be straight or wavy to curly. You can curl the entire length of your hair for a more polished look, or maybe just curl the lower half for a more casual look. Either way is a beautiful way to style your hair.
An option for someone who doesn’t want an updo, but wants her hair to have more control than just leaving her hair down, is a side ponytail. This look beautifully combines an elegant and relaxed look all in one.
Here are a few tips for bridal hair. First, choose the hairstyle before you choose the hair accessory. Once you have decided on a style and an accessory, have your stylist try the two together to make sure they work. Do not over accessorize. Just keep it simple but beautiful. Keep regular visits with your stylist so that your hair stays well trimmed. Wear a button up shirt to your appointment the day of the wedding so you do not have to take your shirt off over your head. Last, but certainly not least, keep your style true to you. If you never wear your hair up, then why would you suddenly want your hair up for your wedding? Do not let others dictate the way you should wear your hair just because they like a traditional look.
