Hair Styles &Tricks a Bride Must Know
While planning one’s wedding, hairstyles matter a lot day. Choosing an appropriate hairstyle is necessary so planning for the event itself requires attention.
Picking the right wedding hairstyle
Do you want a hair up-do? Wear it down in rather soft waves or a half-up braided hairstyle. Consider these factors prior to deciding:
WHAT’S THE DRESS LIKE?
The hairstyle should not compete with one’s dress, it should complement it. If the dress is simple, safe to go with a more dramatic hairstyle. If the dress is an extravagant ball gown having more embellishments a more subtle, elegant up-do is better. If the dress has a gorgeous, open-back design, choose a side ponytail or braid to show it off.
WHAT’S THE WEATHER LIKE?
If the wedding takes place inside or during cooler climates, it is safe to go for gorgeous cascading curls or any other sort of hairstyle of one’s choice. But if getting married in a hot, humid climate, considering an up-do is better as there is no need to worry about frizzy hair sticking to the back, or the curls falling out.
HAIR LENGTH, VOLUME AND TEXTURE
Consider hairstyles on shorter hair. The texture of hair does play a part in wedding hairstyles, along with hair accessories. Heavy hair combs are not proper for fine hair.
VEIL OR NO VEIL
Opting for a sturdier wedding hairstyle like a low bun instead of a soft, wispy, loose up-do while wearing a veil seems alright to think of.
Do a trial run ahead of time
Hair needs to be long enough to be safely secured. Having enough hair to make the hairstyle look voluminous and impressive is also essential. Does it match hair texture and face shape? A trial run helps.
Bring visual references to one’s hairstylist
Providing the hairstylist with photos of exactly what is being looked for does help avoid any miscommunications and misunderstandings.
Should the bride do her own hair for the wedding?
It is better to consult a professional hairstylist for one’s wedding hairstyle. If master a few techniques, then try it out yourself. Tutorials help to practice and perfect the hairstyle a few months ahead of the wedding or a close friend or family member or one’s maid of honor can do the needful.
Avoiding a haircut just before the wedding
Drastic hair changes or dye jobs need to be avoided. A tiny trim a few weeks before the wedding gives the hair a healthy look. Making sure to keep the locks nourished and also moisturized in the months leading up to one’s wedding is important.
Be true to your real self
On the wedding day, the bride feels happy, beautiful, and comfortable. Wearing hair naturally or rocking is thought of. Unmanageable hairstyles need to be avoided.
Change up one’s look for the reception
Most brides think of less elaborate dresses for the reception; why not with a wedding hairstyle?
Prep hair accordingly to the day before
Some hairstylists prefer blowouts before they hold a style on the wedding day. If having curly or frizzy hair, it is advisable to have the hair professionally blow-dried the day before for it to be smooth for styling. Avoid flat ironing the hair prior to getting it styled.
Pack an emergency wedding hair kit
Inquire about the hair products the stylist is using on the wedding day hairstyle, in order to purchase travel-size versions to carry along. If the hairstylist is not on site for touch-ups, these extra products will be key saviors in times of panic. Bobby pins, extra hair ties, dry shampoo, a hairbrush, and a travel-size hairspray come in handy.
Shopping around for the perfect hairstylist to match one’s vision
Being loyal to one’s hairstylist is essential as he or she understands one’s hair’s texture when it comes to dyeing. Hairstylists have their own specializations, some providing a bohemian look, and few go in for soft half-up-do or glam looks.
Hairstyles matter at a wedding as the bride needs to look her best.
