Having a bad hair day on your wedding is every bride’s worst nightmare. Choose the wrong hairstyle and you’ll break your entire wedding look.
Take your time when choosing a wedding hairstyle and follow the advice given below.
1. Find a dress first
You need to shop for a gown and then determine the hairstyle that goes well with it. Your hair, accessories and flowers will depend on the gown you choose. A good hair stylist will always help you choose a style that complements your wedding dress.
2. Try something different
Don’t be shy to try something different but make sure you don’t go overboard. Anything drastic and you might regret your choice of hairstyle. Discuss your ideas with a hairstylist who has experience working with brides. Don’t choose a style that you’re not comfortable with, it will only add you stress on your special day.
3. Consider your venue
Pick a style that works for the location of your wedding. If your wedding is in an informal setting like a garden or beach then a free flowing hairstyle would be suitable. Choose something a bit more formal for a church wedding.
4. Be realistic
Your hair will determine the kind of style that looks best on you and that’s why most wedding hairstylists recommend brides to start taking care of their hair months before the wedding date. There are some styles that won’t work for someone with scarce hair. The texture of your hair will also determine what looks good on you.
5. Be flexible
Don’t put off some wedding hairstyles before trying them out. Your hairstylist may recommend a certain style that seems to blend well with your hair texture and dress. You can try it out a couple of months prior to the wedding to see if you like it. Just ensure you choose a style that suits your personality.
6. Consider the veil
If you will be wearing a wedding veil then make sure your hairstyle complements it. There are so many different styles of wedding veils and you can always choose one that is perfect for your dress and hairstyle.
7. Go for a trial
You must be confident with your bridal hairstylist that he/she is going to do your hair just the way you want it and that’s why booking a trial appointment is important. This will give you an idea of what the stylist can do and you are also encouraged to express any changes you want made at this point.
