It’s Your Day to Shine – Wedding Day Hair Style

A common mistake many brides make when they are planning their wedding is to completely lose their own identity and personal style when it comes to making decisions about hair and fashion for their very special day. You will no doubt want to look and feel special on your wedding day, but make sure you are very careful to ensure that the woman who walks down the aisle on the big day is definitely you and not an image of what you or someone else thinks you should look like.

When it comes to choosing a wedding hair styles, your number first and most important priority is to actually like the hair style you will wear. Bear in mind that there are no right or wrong and right choices when selecting your wedding hair style.

Far too often, planning a wedding can make you feel like you are involved in a major project management endeavor. You are suddenly responsible for coordinating and managing countless, not to mention dozens of people, all of whom have their own ideas about how things should be done. It does not matter if your wedding is just a small gathering of ten of your closest friends and relatives or a media event, you will still need a wedding plan; and the most efficient way to plan a flawless wedding of any size is to use a wedding checklist.

Just make sure you add your wedding hair style to your wedding check list… meeting with several hair stylists to discuss various wedding hair styles to fig your personality, your face, and especially your gown and headgear. It is best to start this process at least six months in advance of the big day – especially if your hair is short. Even if you want to sport a short hairdo on your wedding day, you may want to grow your hair out a bit to achieve the style and look that you desire to have for your wedding. You may even want to consider cutting it shorter if your hair is at one of those ‘in between’ lengths and a decidedly short hairdo is what you want for your wedding.

Nearly every professional hair stylist will have a portfolio of wedding hairdos to share with you and will be able to advise you on the wedding hairdo that would be best for you on what is no doubt the most special day of your life. With the right hair stylist and the right hair style, your hair will be perfect throughout the entire day from the first photo in the dressing room until the last guest has gone home.

Tips For Your Wedding Day Hair

How many times have you looked at someone’s wedding photos and known instantly what year they got married? Mullet, beehive 60′s, big 80’s hair, or another dated hairstyle? Here are some helpful wedding day hair tips so you can love your hair all day long and 20 years from now instead of taking the wedding photo off the wall.

Up or Down?

Should you go with an up do or leave your hair down? No doubt after the famous Kate and Will wedding we’ll be seeing plenty of hair down over the next wedding season! This is a personal decision and you will know how you and your fiancé like to see you. Consult with a few whose opinion you value. Of course there are magazines filled with photos of hairstyles. And you can ask your friends and family to look through their wedding photos to see what others have done as well.

Updos tend to last the whole day and can be very elegant looking. But too tight a bun and you could be suffering a headache all day long. Having your hair down may be more comfortable and make you feel more like yourself but is your hairstyle today going to look good in 20 years? Remember Perth is a windy city and a style that looks great in the salon doesn’t always look so elegant once you’re outside in the wind, hair going everywhere. Not to mention how the wedding photographs will look with wisps of hair all over your face! Lots to think about!

Some brides wear veils. Some wear tiaras. And some flowers. Some prefer no headdress at all. There are websites that are dedicated to bridal hair styles and some women even utilise the expertise of their wedding photographer who can show his portfolio and it could contain plenty of ideas on different hairstyles for the wedding day. It’s always good to hear the advise of a trusted and well experienced hairdresser, but remember to be true to yourself and ensure your groom will recognise you when you come down the aisle.

Trial Run

A trial run several weeks before the wedding could be a big help. Having a hair stylist try a few styles would be a good idea. You might bring a photo of your dress for suggestions from the stylist or you might even consider bringing the dress. Some stylists will come to your home to do your hair and makeup on the wedding day. Take advantage of this, it makes your day far more relaxing if everyone comes to you rather than you driving around in traffic. Your hair stylist should be able to tell you how long it will take to do the hair of everyone involved, make sure this is factored into your getting ready time. If you have a large bridal party it may be worth discussing the possibility of having two stylists assist you on the day. It’s a good idea to have the stylist do your hair first, this way if time runs short you’re not left to last and the one being rushed. After all you’re the most important person on this day!

Caution: For brides and especially for grooms…

Don’t try out a new hairstyle or colour right before the wedding. Don’t try out a new hairdresser right before the wedding.

Hair for yourself and your wedding party is part of the look and feel for the day. Talk to your bridesmaids about their hair as well. Maybe you’ve got a wedding party filled with people with long hair and they could all get the same hairstyle. Perhaps your wedding isn’t as traditional as requiring everyone to look the same. But as it’s your day, it should be done your way so don’t be afraid to tell people what you want. Don’t be afraid to shop around for different wedding hair stylists to find someone with whom you really feel comfortable, listens to you along with offering sound advise.

 

More on Wedding Hairstyles

Long slender graceful necks are accentuated by an upsweep type of hairstyle. This wedding hairstyle is also ideal if you have chosen a high neck bridal gown, as you will be able to show more detail that lies on the top half of the dress. The disadvantage for this hairstyle is that your hairdresser would have had to put in a lot of pins to hold the hair style and undoing it can be a bit of a task, especially when you want to get your hair down after the wedding for a more casual party.

If you have chosen a stylish sleeveless wedding dress with a low back then consider having your hair falling straight down the back in between the shoulders. This is a more traditional wedding hairstyle your hair can be cascading in curls or absolutely straight. Straight hairstyles look quite sleek and do not require much maintaining during the event, but it can also look a bit bland on those with a low volume or thin hair. A curly hair style is bouncy and adds volume to your hair, looking quite gorgeous. However a head full of curls will require maintaining and the hairdresser needs to be good at applying product to ensure it stays fresh all through the event.

When you have wedding hair styles for long hair that falls straight down the back, there is always the disadvantage of covering quite a bit of your bridal gown that may be encrusted in beads or have a beautiful lace bodice.

Your wedding hairstyle needs to be a careful decision including picking the right hairdresser. Many local hairdressers will say they specialize in wedding styles, but research them carefully picking only experienced professionals. Choosing the right hairdressing salon make seem a bit painstaking but its well worth the effort.

Bridal magazines and websites will have a number of photos of wedding hairstyles to use as ideas but try not to stray too far from the way you wear your hair now.

For a glamorous look the choice of a tiara, crystal encased bird veil cage is an appropriate choice. The good thing about wedding hair accessories is that it is suitable for women of all ages. Once the bride has made her choice she can then help the maids to pick up similar pieces to give it a well coordinated look on the wedding day.
