Wedding Hairstyle Tips
By Kate on 18 June 2009
One of the most important elements of your wedding day is your hairstyle. And to ensure that you get the best results for your wedding hairstyle, all you have to do is follow a few simple tips.
Start With a Picture
Having a picture of the style that you want is the easiest way to guarantee that you communicate to your stylist what kind of bridal hairstyle it is that you are after and that you get exactly the style that you want.
Plan Around Your Accessories
Planning your hairstyle to complement your accessories (such as an upstyle to show off your necklace and earrings) is the perfect way to add elegance to your wedding style.
Incorporate Your Wedding Flowers into Your Style
Placing flowers in your hair is a popular and classic wedding hairstyle tip. You can also ask your stylist which hair color will enhance and complement the shade of your flowers.
Have a Wedding Consultation
Talk to your stylist about what hairstyles your hair type and texture can pull off and what you can/may need to do (extensions, etc) to achieve the hairstyle that you want.
Don't Forget all Angles of Your Hair
It's not just your front section on show, the back and sides of your style needs to be just as perfect. The back of your head, after all, is what most of the guests at your ceremony will see.
Don't be Afraid to Say What You do and don't Like
When planning your wedding hairstyle with your stylist, don't be afraid to tell them if you don't like the style they've suggested or the way something is done. This is your day after all and your hairstyle should look exactly how you want it to. If your stylist does, however, have some good advice, it's worth taking on board.
Ensure it's Weather-Proof
There's nothing worse than having your hair styled into your perfect look only to have it fall flat due to the weather. Avoid problems by selecting a style suitable for the location and season that your wedding takes place.
Match the Theme
Match your hairstyle to the theme of your wedding. An elegant wedding deserves elegant hair, while a casual affair will suit a casual hairstyle such as chic, glossy curls.
Trial Your Hair with Your Dress
The best way to see if your bridal style will suit you and your beautiful wedding dress is to do your hair similar to the way that you want it styled when having your dress fitting. This way you can see if your hair is the perfect match for your dress.
