Whether you’re going glam, boho or traditional, choosing the right hairstyle for your wedding day is key! The ideal style will have you looking radiant, while feeling comfortable. We’ve gathered some tips for choosing a ‘do that transitions from ceremony-moments to dance-floor-memories with ease.
Consider the dress
If you’ve chosen your dress first, take the neckline and style into consideration when choosing how you’ll wear your hair. If you’ve chosen a gown with a scalloped lace neckline that showcases your beautiful shoulders, consider an updo to allow these features to shine! Likewise, if you’ve chosen a simple dress, you can consider more elaborate hairstyle options such as all down, half up, playful braids and more.
Trends aren’t (always) your friends
A wedding day theme is great, but you may regret going too-trendy with your hairstyle. These will be memories and photographs you look back on for years to come, so be sure your ‘do is a style you’ve long-loved! While you don’t need to stick to “traditional,” do consider whether or not the look can be “timeless.”
Don’t skip the trial run
#1 advice from bride’s and stylists alike? Don’t skip the trial run. So, you’re thinking of bucking tradition and trying something new for your wedding day style? Risks can pay off and, if you pride yourself on being unique, this just may be the most “you” thing you can do! We say go for it – but whatever you do – have a trial run. Testing the look in advance is the best way to be sure you look and feel great on your big day.
Pro tip: Plan a date with your partner or girls-night-out for the evening of your hair (and makeup) trial. You’ll be feeling fabulous and that ‘do deserves a true test-drive!
