Chances are, your wedding hair style is something starting to weigh heavy on your mind. If you’re a normal bride, you’re probably wondering if you should wear your hair up or down. While there’s no “right” answer, here are a few beauty tips to help you choose what wedding hair style might be perfect for your big event!
Casual Wedding Hair Styles
Today’s brides are more often choosing casual wedding themes, like beach weddings or garden weddings. If your ceremony is in the day hours or your theme is more casual, take that into consideration when choosing your wedding hair preferences. Beach weddings often call for casual hair dos, like flowing, beachy waves or soft updos with hair pieces framing your face. Never pick a fussy hair do for a casual wedding or you’ll only look out of place at your own event.
Choosing Your Hair Style According to Your Veil
Many brides choose their wedding hair style based upon the type of headpiece they’ll be wearing on their wedding day. Some veils lend themselves better to be used on updo styles, while others look best on longer hair styles. Obviously, the best way to determine this is to try your headpiece on with your hair up and then try it on again with your hair down. Whichever appeals most to you will be best for your wedding day!
If you’re choosing to wear a tiara headpiece, you may want to make a few additional considerations. If you wear a tiara headpiece with a formal updo like a French Twist, you will be putting off an elegant image of class, dignity and sophistication. However, the same tiara headpiece can be worn with long, flowing waves to give a more innocent, girly vibe to your wedding look. It’s all up to the bride to decide what type of vibe she wants to put out there on her big day, because both are simply beautiful.
Hair Ideas for Short Haired Brides
If you have short hair, your options for bridal hair might seem limited, but they’re not! You can use beautiful wedding hair accessories to glam up even the shortest hair. Vintage combs are easy to wear and can be found in both formal and casual styles. Of course, some brides opt to get extensions before the wedding, so they can wear their hair in a different way. It’s advised if you are choosing to get extensions, to do so a month or so before your wedding so you can get used to them and those around you can get used to your new hair style. Otherwise, you might find yourself looking like a totally different person on your wedding day and it might make you feel uncomfortable.
All in all, it’s a great idea to meet with your stylist far before your wedding to do a few trial runs on your hair do for the big day. Otherwise, you might end up with a hair do you don’t like. Just remember, if you can’t decide whether to wear your hair up or down, you can always go for a half up look, which is increasingly popular with brides today!
