The hair style you choose on your wedding day is one of the most important details because it can change your look completely, so choose carefully based on what is flattering on you, fits your personality, matches the formality of the wedding, and suites well with your gown.
1. Simple Yet Stylish!
Simple has become the new sexy when it comes to current bridal hair fashions, with Updo’s that you can even create yourself, from loose and tousled to a piled high, thick bun. A loose, simple Updo with unrestrained tresses looks flattering on most women, and can be accomplished with just about any hairstyle, although a style with many layers will help you accomplish this look better, and works particularly well for women with unruly, curly, thick hair. And, for those lucky brides with small, feminine facial features and high necklines, consider a tighter pulled back Updo with a flower, hair jewelry, or other hair accessory to adorn the bun.
2. Ponytails. Yes, Ponytails!
The classic ponytail can be made to look very elegant with some minor changes. The low side ponytail with an off center part, hair brushed smooth to one side, and small, loose curls added to the tresses is a classy, modern version of a fabulous wedding ponytail. The side ponytail also helps visually balance out a one-shoulder wedding gown, with your tresses anchored to one side, opposite the shoulder strap.
3. Skip the Bobby Pins, Wear Your Hair Down!
If you have healthy beautiful hair, consider showing those tresses off by wearing your locks down. A very simple yet attractive style is with long, loose, and glamorous waves all through out the hair. This style fits a beach wedding particularly well, as well as any strapless wedding gown, as the hair falling over your shoulders and back won’t hide any of the special details in your dress. Or, if you have short hair, you can style it in a cute, sassy way, and maybe finish the look with a fun, feminine hair piece to match.
4. Wedding Worthy Updo’s
Seemingly the most popular style for many weddings, modern Updo’s have become bigger and better! Think large, french twists, thick buns, or retro beehives with lots of volume, but without the princess tiara or bridal veil, giving it a clean, timeless look.
5. Hair Accessories
Plan your hair accessories around the hair style you’ve chosen as well as your dress. A wedding gown with lots of ornate detailing doesn’t necessarily call for hair decorations at all.
As opposed to the classic tiara, the hair accessories I’ve seen on the runways are now calling for a more simple, vintage look with the use of flower, feather, and tulle fascinators, art deco combs, birdcage veils, headbands or sparkly brooches.
