Every woman deserves to look her best on her wedding day. From the dress, to the makeup, to the hair style; it all has to work together to create a desired look. Choosing the dress can be one of the biggest decisions a woman makes before her wedding, therefore it is important to get the dress sorted early on in the wedding plans. Once the dress is chosen, all other elements of the bridal look can then come into place around the dress.

How to wear your hair on your wedding day is a huge decision. Your decision will be influenced by your dress, your own personal style, your face shape and by the sort of hair you have naturally. Most women will have an idea of how they want to look on their big day and here are five great looks, each of which would be perfect for a bride on her wedding day.

Lots of people associate bridal hair with a classic updo. It is sophisticated and elegant and is the perfect way of showing the shoulders and neck in a strapless gown. A sophisticated updo is always a popular choice amongst brides-to-be. The bride and her stylist can experiment with curls and twists in order to create a desired bridal look. This is especially appropriate for a formal wedding.

This classic style is best for hair that is medium in length and is straight and medium to thick. However, the look can be achieved on most hair types, even if you have fine hair you can create your desired style by making use of hair extensions or a clip-on hair piece.

If you are looking for a more modern look then you could try a modern twist on the formal classic updo. You can do this by adding a softer and more romantic look with ringlets or experimenting with decorative hairpins, tiaras or combs. With this look the more tousled the better and the look can be achieved with hair of all lengths and textures.

It is a common misconception that a bride should always wear her hair up. There has been a recent trend amongst brides and especially celebrity brides of wearing their hair long and loose. As long as your hair is in good condition you can either wear is sleek and straight or experiment with romantic, cascading curls. If you don’t want to go the whole way and wear all of your hair down you could try pulling half your hair back in a “half-updo” for a more formal look.

You can also accessorise with a classic headband style tiara or a veil for a simple yet elegant look. If you are going for a traditional bride look then you can combine a graceful tiara or headband with an elegant veil. The veil can then easily be removed after the ceremony if need be.

Don’t worry if your hair is short, you can still create a beautiful bridal look. Short haired brides should make the most of simple accessories for a fun, sophisticated and unique look. Tiaras, headbands or decorative hair pins can be used to create a beautiful and timeless look for short bridal hair. Even short haired brides can wear their hair curly if they want!

Curly hair is great for creating a romantic, beautiful bridal look. Lots of brides will use heated appliances to create perfect curls but if you are lucky enough to have naturally curly hair then you should work with its natural texture to create a stunning look. With curly hair you can wear it up, down or even half-up and accessories will perfectly off-set your curls.

However you decide to wear your hair on your special day you need to make sure that you are 100% happy with your look and make sure you practice your style with your stylist a few times before the big day.

Celebrity Wedding Hair Styles

admin : March 11, 2011 11:52 am : Wedding Hair styles

We all love a good celebrity wedding. Especially if they sell their story to the magazines and we get to see exactly what dress they were wearing, how they wore their hair and what the reception looked like. Of course most celeb weddings are more lavish and grandiose than most of us could ever recreate, but they are a useful source of inspiration. You may be able to recreate bits and pieces of your favourite celebrity couple’s wedding such as the colour theme or the way the bride styled her hair.

Getting as many ideas as possible without being over-whelmed is the key to planning the perfect wedding. You can take inspiration from wedding fashion magazines and by looking at how others do it, this includes celebrities. As a society we have a huge fascination with celebrities, what they wear, what they do and especially how they get married. A wedding is a perfect excuse for a celebrity to spend vast amounts of money on a lavish celebration.

The hair styles of famous brides have always been a matter of interest to the public in general and, of course, to brides in particular as they plan their own wedding. In fact, they are one of the best sources of dream wedding beauty inspiration. There are plenty of magazines that specifically cover celebrity weddings so you are sure to be able to find some amazing inspiration.

Wedding style completely depends on what the bride wants to look like and her own personal style. One of the biggest mistakes a lot of brides make is to change their own style nearly beyond recognition when it comes to the wedding day. You still want to look like yourself on your big day, just a better version of you. Katharine McPhee was married in 2009 and wore her hair down in a very natural style on her wedding day. She commented that some brides tend to go overboard and drastically change their look for their wedding and she just wanted to look like herself.

The way you choose to wear your hair on your big day will largely depend on the location of your wedding. For example, if you opt for a countryside wedding then you may want to channel a bohemian look and accessorise with delicate flowers, or if you choose a grand church you may want to stick to a more formal style.

When Mariah Carey married Nick Cannon back in 2008 they chose to have the ceremony on a beach in the Bahamas. She mirrored the tropical location by wearing her hair in a similar way to her signature every day style, down and wavy with beautiful curls.

Eva Longoria Parker chose to wear her hair in a simple but sweet long, loose hair style with big waves for her wedding day. She is known for her fancy and sometime dramatic hair styles on the red carpet but for her wedding she opted for a more feminine and pretty style. Ultimately, every bride will have an idea of how they want to look on their wedding day and it is essential that they stick to this idea.

Catherine Zeta Jones opted for a big dramatic updo at her wedding. Her thick long hair was wrapped up and rested in a big bun on top of her head. She then accessorised with a unique and intricate bridal headband. This matched her full-length gown perfectly as it too was dramatic yet elegant.

Avril Lavigne showed the rest of us how to do modern verging on sexy bride with her pretty bright blonde waves back in 2006.

A bride’s hair style on her big day depends on various factors including location and dress but the most important thing is that she feels happy and comfortable with how she looks. Her appearance should fit in with her personality and own personal style and shouldn’t be a huge departure from her usual appearance. If you feel happy with how you look on your wedding day then it will show in your pictures and it will be a day to remember for the rest of your lives together!
