4 Expert Tips for Choosing the Perfect Wedding Day Hairstyle

For a lot of people, their hair is one of the most defining features. We spend a lot of time perfecting the proper cut and color, using quality products and mastering the perfect curl. Your wedding day hairstyle is no different. You want to find a hairstyle that complements your dress, enhances your features and matches the overall theme of your wedding. To help you look and feel your best on your big day, we've gathered four expert tips to a perfect wedding day hairstyle.

Consider Your Dress and Venue

Before deciding on a hairstyle, take into account the style and neckline of your wedding dress. A detailed, intricate dress might call for a more elegant updo to showcase the dress's design, while a simple and flowing gown could be beautifully complemented by loose, romantic curls. Additionally, consider the venue and weather conditions; an outdoor wedding on a windy day may require a hairstyle that's more secure, such as a braided updo or a half-up, half-down style.

Embrace Your Natural Hair Texture

Your wedding day is not the time to experiment with drastic hair changes. Embrace and enhance your natural hair texture instead. We love working with natural curls! Whether you have straight, wavy, curly, or coily hair, work with your hairstylist to find the best way to style it. Your natural hair texture can contribute to a more effortless and timeless look that showcases your true beauty.

Balance Your Hairstyle with Accessories

Accessories can elevate your hairstyle and add a touch of elegance to your overall look. However, it's crucial to find the right balance. If your dress is heavily embellished or adorned with intricate details, opt for more subtle hair accessories to avoid overwhelming your appearance. On the other hand, if your dress is relatively simple, a more elaborate headpiece or veil can add that extra "wow" factor.

Hair Health and Care

Start preparing your hair well in advance of your wedding day just as you should your skin. Regular trims and deep conditioning treatments can ensure your locks are in top condition and easy to manage on the big day. Avoid drastic color changes or chemical treatments close to the wedding date, as this can lead to unnecessary stress if the results don't turn out as expected.

Selecting the perfect hairstyle for your wedding day involves careful consideration of your wedding theme and personal preferences. Collaborate with our team of expert bridal hair stylists who can help you determine the style and give you the best tips for achieving a timeless look.
