Big Romantic Waves
Wearing your hair
down in long loose waves is a very romantic bridal hair style. It
can best be achieved using hot rollers and a large barrel curling
iron. Blow dry hair up and out for maximum volume and then apply a
curling mousse. Roll hair piece by piece into hot rollers.
Randomly curl some
strands around curling iron with fingers. Tousle hair. Spray with
lots of hairspray to keep your curls all day long. This style is
not recommended in humid climates because the waves tend to fall
Sleek and Straight
This is an easy
style for wedding hair that works well for brides wearing minimalist
dresses or simple sheaths. Blow dry hair using a round brush
pulling hair up and out at roots and straight at the ends. When
hair is dry, apply a smoothing serum to hair. Using a ceramic
straightening iron (like a Chi Iron) straighten hair piece by
piece. Give some pizzazz to this style by adding a fancy barrette
or flower to your hair.
To update this
style, give it a super sleek look. First straighten your hair with
a ceramic iron. Use a smoothing serum to remove flyaways, and then
pull hair into a tight low ponytail. Wind hair around into a knot
at the base of your neck and secure with bobby pins.
The bun is a
typical style for wedding hair. To make it different, pull a few
pieces of hair over the bun at a diagonal to make a crisscross
shape. If your hair isnít long enough to do this, use hair
Though it may sound
casual, a long loose ponytail can be an elegant wedding hair style.
The key is to gather hair loosely to your back or side and secure it
with a hair barrette or elastic. Donít leave this style bare. Add
a large flower or ribbon to make it dressy.
One of the hottest
styles for wedding hair is also one of the most simple. Take a few
pieces of your hair and secure them to the side with a decorative
barrette. This works for hair thatís long or short and can be done
with flat ironed straight hair, bouncy waves or curls. Look for a
hair barrette that will contribute to your overall look. Lots of
online retailers and bridal stores carry barrettes with rhinestones,
pearls or other accents. You can also get barrettes in shapes like
seashells or flowers.
Wedding Hair Style
Plan your style in advance
Like anything else
having to do with your wedding, youíll want to plan out the style
for your wedding hair in advance. Look through bridal hairstyles
online, in magazines, books or use one of the wedding day hair ideas
here to choose your style. Then find a hairstylist who is
experienced in wedding hair. Schedule your big day hair appointment
and a run through a few weeks before your wedding date.
Donít do anything drastic
Every bride wants
to look her personal best on her wedding day. That usually means
the bride will make a few changes from her everyday appearance for
the wedding. While you may want to make some changes, you still
want you wedding guests and your future husband to be able to
recognize you when youíre walking down the aisle. The key here is
keeping the changes subtle. If you always wear your hair down and
you want to wear an updo for your wedding, no problem. If you want
to change your hair color from dark brown to platinum blonde, you
may want to rethink it.
If you absolutely
must change something big about your appearance for your wedding,
make the change at least a month in advance. That way, youíll have
time to make any adjustments to your hair before the wedding.
Schedule it right
When it comes to
making the appointment for your wedding hair, donít make it too
early on the big day. While your makeup can be touched up later,
your hair style will only get more ragged as the day goes on.
Particularly if your style calls for curls or a big updo, schedule
your hair appointment as late in the day as possible without being
Relax on conditioning
Your wedding hair
style will hold better if your hair isnít super conditioned the day
you get it done. So, donít do any deep conditioning treatments the
day before the wedding. If you hair isnít very oily, you may want
to skip washing your hair that day altogether.
