The modern day bride’s wedding hairstyle is becoming so important, with more brides opting out of wearing a traditional wedding veil in favour of a glamorous hair do for their special occasion.
Whichever wedding hairstyle you choose, it’s wise to keep it nice and simple, and most importantly ensure that your locks are completely secured to withhold any dance floor moves during the evening.
Here’s a few wedding hairstyle ideas to consider for your big day:
Keep It Simple
If you love your locks just the way they are, why not use a simple headband, hair jewels or a pretty flower to match your wedding dress. Loose side plaits, sweeping pony tails and braided up dos are a big hit at the moment, and you could even add in an embellished bridal headpiece to give your do a boost of colour and texture.
Bringing Sexy Back
If you’ve picked out a beautiful backless wedding dress, it’s time to show off your shapely, sexy back with a chignon, side-do or side plait. Keep it really relaxed yet classy and enjoy the reactions of your wedding guests and husband-to-be as you sashay your way down that isle.
Beach Weddings and Rustic Chic
Your wedding venue choice can have a big impact on the hairstyle you choose. For instance, if you’ve opted for a non-formal, fuss-free beach or garden wedding, you may want to reflect this in your wedding hairstyle. Think beautifully relaxed, vintage inspired free-flowing waves, a tousled fishtail braid, or perfectly placed flowers or feathers.
Chic and Sleek
If simple and classic is your look of choice, steer clear of anything too fashionable. Think Breakfast at Tiffany’s and keep it chic and sleek with a timeless low bun or chignon.
The Bold and the Beautiful
If your wedding dress is really simple and elegant, you have far more room to up the ante with your wedding hairstyle. Think volume, height and flamboyant hair accessories.
The Long and Short of It
You really don’t have to worry about spending the year growing your locks in time for your big day. Short wedding hairstyles are in abundance and a sleek bob or pixie cut can be dressed up with a simple headband, a pretty flower or embellished hair slides. Another option is to wear hair extensions or clip-in hair to very quickly create the impact you crave.
