Choosing Your ‘Do: Tips On Wedding Hairstyles

Feb 19, 2010

Once you’ve picked out your dress and your veil, the next big item on your wedding day to do list is probably your hairstyle. There are so many options out there when it comes to your hair that it can seem almost impossible to decide!  We’ve collected a few great tips that should help you on your search:

  • Match Your Gown – All of your accessories, including your hairstyle, should compliment your gown rather than compete with it. Look at how formal your gown is, and how complex it is, and think about hairstyles that would work well – loose curls and flowers in your hair for a more country-chic wedding (high waisted, peasant dress style, for example), or a dramatic updo for a black tie affair.
  • Consider Your Headpiece – Since you’ll probably only get your hair styled once during the day, pick a style that looks great with and without a veil. Don’t schedule any hair trials until you have your veil or other hair accessory in hand.
  • Think About Length – if you imagined an elegant updo on your big day, but your hair is barely touching your shoulders, you might need to adjust your plan. Think ahead and start treating your hair accordingly – use protective products and look into a good multivitamin to help promote strong healthy hair. If you choose a style early enough, you can work on growing your hair to the proper length!
