Perfect Bridal Hair
Some brides say that deciding on the perfect wedding day hairstyle is as important as finding the dress. As you begin your search for the perfect hairstyle, make sure you have clear preferences in style, but also allow yourself to have some fun with it. Here are some helpful tips:
First, by hair type:
Don’t fight your natural hair, own it! If you have curls and have decided on a summer wedding, it won’t matter how good the straightening iron is; your curls will reappear any minute. Instead of fighting the curls, play with them. Look for humidity-fighting styling products to help keep frizz at a minimum.
Similar to curly hair, you can’t fight your natural texture—even tight curls may fall before the reception begins. Go for a sleek style, like a low bun to one side or style it down to show off your hair’s silky smooth texture.
You’ll have enough material to work with whether you go up, half-up or all the way down. A look we love: an edgy ponytail. Also, consider braids, twists and curls to take full advantage of your length. The longer your hair, the more options you have, so be creative!
Shoulder-length hair can actually be better for many styles, as it weighs less and takes fewer pins and products to keep it up. Short hair can handle impressively pristine pin curls, old-Hollywood style. For a spritz that’s strong but lightweight, try a volumizing hair spray.
Now, some general advices:
Plan with Time
If you plan to get your hair colored or permed, have it done at least one month before your wedding day. The extra time will soften the style a bit, so it looks natural. More importantly, if anything goes wrong, you’ll have time to fix it.
Don’t get your hair done too early on your wedding day, and don’t wear it pulled back too tight. Your scalp may start to hurt and you could get a headache if you wear a tight updo for a long period of time.
Keep it Neat
Get a trim a few weeks before your wedding day to neaten up your tips and eliminate split ends.
Don’t exaggerate, it will just leave your guests wondering who that girl in the white dress is! An overly complicated hair-do is just one more thing for you to worry about, and we all know that’s not something you need right now!
