The Perfect Tips for the Perfect Wedding Day
A wedding is one of the most important events of a woman’s life, which is why a bride wants every detail to be perfect from the ceremony to her gown. This attention to detail should also include the hair style she will wear. She should start thinking about it as early as possible to allow her hair to grow out: hair grows at a rate of approximately a half-inch a month or six inches a year. Having longer hair will allow for more leeway in selecting wedding hair styles. There are many ways you can style your hair on your wedding day, but three of the most prominent and traditional styles are the updo, long hair styles and medium-length hair styles. Each of these can be worn with accessories such as tiaras, flowers or rhinestones.
An up do style involves putting the hair up using pins; it can be worn with both long and medium-length hair. One advantage of this style is that you can wear it up during the wedding itself, and then take out the pins to create a second look for the reception.
Long wedding hair styles involve the hair worn down at least to the shoulders. It is one of the most versatile styles because there are a variety of ways it can be worn from wavy locks to long and flowing with curls and even a ponytail.
Medium-length styles involve hair that is worn to just above the shoulders and below the nape of the neck. It can be worn with the hair flowing down with the ends lightly curled.
For a more modern alternative, however, the bride can go for a short hair style which will give her a sassier look. Accessories such as a coronet can be added to give the do a touch of elegance.
One consideration for choosing your wedding hairdo is if it compliments your wedding outfit, from the gown to the shoes. For example, a simple wedding dress demands an equally uncomplicated style. The do should also match the ambience of the wedding itself; if you’re having a formal, traditional ceremony, you should select a style that reflects this.
Some tips for achieving the perfect wedding hair styles:
1. It is always good to have pictures of the style that you want on hand to give to your stylist. Sources for these hairdo pictures could be bridal magazines or downloading them from bridal websites.
2. Begin practicing good hair care several months before the wedding to ensure that your hair is healthy when it is ready to be styled.
3. Don’t neglect your overall appearance. Make sure that your make-up is natural looking and you get a facial to remove the signs of tension from the wedding preparations.
4. Plan ahead. Make sure to meet with your hairstylist several weeks in advance to start discussing the style, as well as other considerations such as the right color if you’re thinking of dying your hair for the wedding. And allot enough time on the day itself to have your make-up and hairstyling done without rushing.
