It’s the most important day of your life. You’ve found the right man, dress and the perfect location. What about the hair?
Hair can be the most important thing to consider, it needs to compliment your dress and face. You need to consider the shape of your face. If you have a long face, add volume and width to create wider features. If you you have a rounder face, try and create a choppy or graduated hairstyle. Long hair has more options to work with although short can look just as chic and stylish.
Remember, hair grows 6 inches per year so if you are unhappy with your locks plan ahead. Try to use a deep conditioning natural repair mask, once a week and keep blow drying and straightening to a minimum.
Keep in mind where your wedding is taking place. Will it be outside or indoors? In light day or dark night? Are you are going to wear a veil? These will all contribute to how the hair will sit on the day and how it will look in your photos.
Audrey Hepburn is the style icon for classic hair. Think Breakfast at Tiffany’s, very sophisticated.
Turn heads with a formal looking up-do which can be very feminine by adding a fascinator or some eye catching clips.
A Classic Chignon
Tie the knot in style! A chignon knot is surprisingly quick and easy to do just as long as you have semi to long hair. Firstly brush hair into a low ponytail, then split your hair into two. Now with your two sections of hair, start twisting them around each other. Next, simply twist the hair around the base of your ponytail into a low bun chignon. A gorgeous crystal looking accessory to the side of bun will make it look modern and fun.
With this trendy cute do, use a large barrel brush and curl round at the roots and the ends when blow drying. Use tiny amounts of hair wax and use a hair straightener to style the front and give it boost rather than sitting straight. Remember; practice a lot before the big day if you want to try something slightly different. Finish off with an optional bold hair band with gems or flowers.
Romantic Princess look for Long Hair
For this beautiful neat look you will need medium to long hair. First separate the hair into equal sections then wrap heated rollers from the bottom of the hair up. Pin the rollers to your head then spray hairspray while they are still warm. Leave for ten minutes then release all of the rollers.
Split your hair into two sections vertically. Get the top section and back comb from underneath as much as you can. Once you are happy with it, with a smoothing brush comb the rest of the hair and tame the back combing. Keeping in line with the parting, use slides to twist, pin and secure. Now you have the option of either curling the rest of the hair, pinning up or simply twisting into a bun.
Wind Swept Curls
To create this wind swept look, use a wide curling tong and spray a water based hairspray all over. Moose at roots will add volume – perfect for thicker hair. Next use your fingers and separate each individual curl. Now rinse you hands with warm water and without drying them-scrunch your hands up within the hair. Last of all get your hair drying and lightly dry with hot, then blast with cold. Optional to use light pins to hold sections up or slant to the side.
Having straight, sleeky hair can look gorgeous. Get regular hair cuts every six weeks and deep condition your hair every week. Use a glossing spray for ultimate shine.
Remember to practice a lot before the big day and know exactly what it’s going to look like to avoid unnecessary worrying. If you are getting a professional hair styler, then have at least one trial run. Good luck!
