So it’s finally almost here – that day you’ve been waiting for since you were a little girl, your wedding. The last thing you need to be worrying about on the happiest day of your life is your hair. That’s why we’ve compiled an easy tips guide to the best possible wedding day hairstyles.
If you follow our tips, we promise that you’ll look beautiful and glowing on your special day and that you won’t have any concerns or worries during the ceremony about what your hair is doing.
First of all, a big mistake that many brides make is donning a hairstyle that just isn’t suited for or that doesn’t complement their dresses. The majority of brides today wear strapless or halter neck wedding dresses. If you fall into this category, then we highly suggest that you go for an updo. Wearing your hair down with a strapless dress can really mess up the flow of the dress and hinder your look.
If you must wear your hair down, it needs to be kept away from your shoulders so that the lines are not ruined or hindered in any way. After all, what’s the point of showing off your shoulders with a modern look if you’re just going to cover them with your hair? The key thing to remember is that your dress and not your hair should be the focal point of your look.
Along with this same rule, you need to avoid overly complicated styles or updos. While having curls piled atop your head might look elegant, you don’t want all of the eyes on your tresses. Simple French twists, buns, or curls at the back of the head are fine, but anything that detracts from the dress or from your beaming face is a big mistake. Also, try not to go with something that takes a lot of hair pins and other materials, especially if you want to let your hair down for the reception.
It is also a really bad idea to make any drastic hair changes shortly before your wedding. Getting a new cut, for example, that you’re not yet used to styling or, worst case scenario, that you hate can take a real toll on your special day. The same goes for trying new hair colors as well. Not only can the dye drip onto and mess up your dress, but it can also change the way a dress looks on you and what vibe it gives off. So, decide on the hair you want long before the wedding and then stick to the plan.
