Whichever hairstyle you opt for on your big day, the most important thing is to make sure you'll feel comfortable with your hair all day long. So if you usually wear your hair down and feel uncomfortable wearing it up, your wedding day is not the day to experiment! No matter how stunning your hair is when its done if you're not comfortable it's no good to you. I would suggest you do what feels natural to you and also think about what will last throughout the day. You should definitely have a trial or two leading up to the big day this way you will leave nothing to chance. I'm going to share some bridal and bridesmaids hairstyles that I think you'll love.
A soft wave is always popular and looks so elegant. However, if you're hair doesn't hold a curl that well, some hair stylists will advise clip in hair pieces. These hold a curl no problem and will fix onto your hair without anyone noticing. You could also add a diamond pin or a flower pin to enhance your look even more, especially for when the veil comes out later in the evening. A fabulous and timeless bridal look.
Next up is a style that is suitable for both brides and bridesmaids. A generally soft and light look works well for bridesmaids, nothing too over the top and complicated. Adding in a flower or two is a nice touch that can make the whole look a bit softer. If you're a bride to be and are thinking of wearing your hair up on the day, a bun is comfortable and elegant and you're hair can be styled in such a way that frames your face beautifully. This soft up-do is perfect for both a bride and a bridesmaid as it will last throughout the day.
If you're thinking of wearing your hair down on your wedding day but want a little something extra to make it more special, then a braid is the perfect addition to your look. Braids also help to keep your hair out of your face and can be worn with your hair half up -half down. They look stunning and will stay in throughout the day. Bridesmaids often chose this style too.
A very popular bridal hairstyle - the glamour/Hollywood wave. This is such an elegant and timeless look. If you want to do something a little different to your usual loose curls then this style is a great option. And if you want to add something to make it really stand out a jewelled hairpiece would be the perfect addition.
This next one would be gorgeous for a bridesmaid- it's simple and elegant and their hair will be up off their face. A classic ponytail with delicate waves incorporated is just stunning.
These are just some of the hairstyles that I personally love and wanted to share with you! So hopefully some future brides will draw some inspiration from this post. Remember that the most important thing is that you feel as beautiful as you look. Do something you'll be comfortable with all day and all night, it really is all about the way you feel on your special day. I'll do a blog post soon talking about some of my favourite hairstylists. Thanks as always for reading.
