Bridal Hair Tips

I am sure all of you ladies have gone Pinterest crazy and now don’t even know where to start when it comes to you hair. Do you want to have your hair up in an updo? Wear it down in soft waves? Or maybe a half-up or pulled to one side hairstyle? There are so many options! Here are a few tips that will help you make your final decision.

What is your dress like?
Your hair shouldn’t be competing with your dress. It should complement it. If your dress is simple, it’s safe to go with a more dramatic hairstyle. If your dress is an extravagant ball gown full of embellishments, maybe consider doing a more subtle yet elegant updo. If your dress has a gorgeous open back design, then hair pulled to the side or braided would be a great option!

What’s the weather like?
If the wedding takes place inside or during cooler climates, it’s safe to have your hair down and curled, or any other hairstyle of your choice. But if you’re getting married in a hot or humid climate? Definitely go for an updo, where you won’t need to worry about frizz and hair sticking to your back. You will thank yourself on your wedding day!

What’s your hair length and volume?
It’s easy to fall in love with a Pinterest hairstyle, only to find out that your hair isn’t nearly long or thick enough to pull it off. In this case, consider only looking for hairstyles that can be done on shorter/mid-length hair. Otherwise, thankfully, you can wear hair extensions to achieve that perfect hairstyle of your dreams.

I hope that these tips have helped you in some way. Happy hair days!
