Late spring and summer are the most popular months of the year to get married, which isn’t surprising since they open up the opportunity for outdoor ceremonies and receptions, such as elegant flowering gardens and beach side weddings. One of the biggest challenges of a summer wedding is deciding on how to wear your hair. You want something that will be cool and comfortable, but still elegant. It should be something that can stand up to high heat and humidity, and will stay put all day long. Here are three of our favorite summer wedding hairstyle trends:
Simple Up Do – pulling your hair up in a bun or a classic chignon is an easy way to beat the heat. There are entire books filled with pictures of wedding up dos, so you won’t have to look far for inspiration. It’s also easy to keep in place – since the hair doesn’t need to move you can use extra hairspray to combat the heat!
The Grown Up Pony – When you first hear the words “pony tail” it makes you think of grade school and going to the gym, but there are plenty of grown up and elegant ways to do a pony. Create a low pony tail to the side and decorate it with a few flowers for a simple and beautiful hair style.
Bridal Braids – Skip the pigtails and go for a loose and elegant braid that just pulls some of your hair back from your face, for a romantic feel. For more formal weddings, you can do a French braid or more elaborate hairstyle that will keep you feeling and looking cool all day.
