When it comes to your hair on your wedding day it has to be right. Hair can make a big difference to how you feel, whether it’s touching up those roots, glamming it up for a night out or simply your day to day style. Being neatly groomed makes you look and feel good about yourself, and this is exactly how you should feel on your special day. Before the wedding you should aim to have at least one or two hair trials so your hairdresser knows what they are working with, and you know you’re getting something you will love.
When considering how you are going to be wearing your hair you should think about the style of your wedding dress and any accessories that will be worn on your head or in your hair to ensure they work well together. You should take these accessories to your practice sessions.
The first thing that stylists usually consider when coming up with suitable hairstyles for brides is the length of her hair. Do you have short hair, shoulder length hair or do your locks reach way below your shoulders? Generally, it’s easier to come up with beautiful bridal hairstyles if you have long hair because you can wear it up, down, in a half-up/half-down style, straight or with romantic curls.
Romance-inspired bridal gowns are pure poetry. The lines are flowy and designers typically use soft, billowing fabrics often with lace and embellishments. The necklines are generally designed to show more skin, either with a scoop or a sweetheart design. To complement the look, the hair should be soft and sweet, keeping things simple.
If you want to project a chic city look, modern designs range from the simple and minimalist to show-stopping avant garde designs with patterned materials and bold colours. These gowns typically have bolder, plunging necklines or high necklines but with elaborate details. The hairstyle should complement a specific style era. However, with modern designs, you can go ahead and break the rules.
