Whether you’re a bride or a bridesmaid, getting your outfit ready for a wedding represents a significant investment of time and money. If you’re the bride-to-be, you’ll want to make sure that your dress is perfect, while bridesmaids will also need to ensure that they reflect the glamour and sophistication shown by the bride without eclipsing her beauty. However, hair and how to style it is one aspect of a bride or bridesmaid’s appearance that may be overlooked, with most women opting for simple straightened locks or an over-elaborate up-do. If you want to make an impact with your wedding hair, here are a few easy tips to bear in mind.
To start with, consider the length of your hair and its un-styled appearance. If your hair is naturally long and straight, an elegant chignon is a classic choice at Hair Square Unisex Salon. This style is a chic alternative to a more dated bun but is just as simple. Ask your hair stylist to pull your hair back smoothly at the front and twist your hair into a chignon at the back before pinning it at the side with a jewelled hairpin. For a more textured look, think about weaving your hair into a big plait and then pinning it up into a chignon. However, it’s best to keep this look simple and classy rather than over-complicate it, particularly if your wedding or bridesmaid’s dress has detailed embroidery near the shoulders.
On the other hand, if your hair is mid-length and wavy or curly, you may want to consider leaving it loose. This is a good look for a summer wedding, especially if your dress is strapless and relatively unadorned, but is perhaps more suitable for bridesmaids and close family members than the bride herself. To style, smooth over your waves and curls with some serum to neaten them up and inject some shine. Then, create a side parting with a comb and clip back the heavier side with a fashionable hair slide or clip to add
some subtle sparkle. This is also an excellent way to style very short hair for a wedding.
In addition to the length of your hair, it’s important to pay attention to colours when choosing wedding hair accessories. For instance, if your hair is blonde, a gold or yellow hair ornament is likely to go unnoticed. Instead, choose a brilliant blue, emerald green or diamond-encrusted pin to highlight your blonde sheen. Brunettes and women with black hair should consider golds, silvers and bright colours that will stand out against their dark tresses, while redheads could opt for timeless pearl adornments.
