If your special day is coming up you’ve probably got a head full of things that need to be done. Everything from catering and music to where the guests will be sitting is probably taking over during sleepless nights! Of course, the one person you should be focusing on the most is you (and you probably haven’t forgotten about the dress, your makeup or your hair!).
There are so many popular wedding hairstyles that it can be difficult to choose between them. From the traditional elegant look to a more natural and familiar style, it’s probably best to have a few ideas when you first start working with your stylist to prepare for the big day but this basic direction should be a lot of help.
For Long Hair
If you normally wear long hair or are growing it out for the big day, there are a few different styles you can choose from. Long hair proves quite versatile and you should be able to pull off almost any look in your dress – relaxed and natural is always popular but sometimes a few curls and waves can really draw attention to the smile on your face. The softer it looks and the more it seems to flow, the more elegant you will tend to look.
For Short Hair
Brides with short hair might want to take some time working with their stylist to come up with some ideas that they think suit them. Creating volume can be incredible looking – using hot rollers can give your hair more body and simple finger styling after can look natural and gorgeous. Backcombing your hair at the crown can add a bit of lift as well if volume is something you’re going for.
For Medium Hair
A good idea for brides with medium length hair is to style it around your dress. Leave it down for one that is strapless or wear it up to show of a halter neckline. You’re able to be incredibly versatile with medium length hair so try and style your hair to suit your face shape. Whether you want curls, volume or straight with a beautiful shine, it’s a good idea to work with your stylist to go through a few ideas before the day.
No matter the length, there are plenty of options when it comes to styling for the big day. Decide which direction you want to go in and work with a stylist to find something that suits you. If you’re looking at magazines and photos for ideas, make sure you take note of face shape and find a style that works for a woman whose face is a similar shape to your own.
