Wedding Hair Style: Choosing Your Bridal Hair Style
Are you confused over what will be the perfect wedding hair style for you? Has thumbing through numerous magazines left you dazed, confused and overloaded with ideas? Should you wear it up, down, curled or straight? Relax, here is the information you need to make an informed and inspired choice about your bridal hair style.
A common mistake many brides make is to completely loose their personal style identity when it comes making hair and fashion choices for their wedding day. Of course you will want to look and feel special on your wedding day, but take care to ensure that it is recognisably you who walks up the aisle to exchange "I dos". When it comes to your wedding hair style, your number one guiding factor should be whether you actually like it.
There are no wrong and right answers when it comes to selecting the right bridal hair style for yourself, here are some tips that will remove some of the confusion surrounding wedding hair dos.
- Plan, Plan, Plan. Sometimes planning a wedding can feel like an exercise in project management! There are so many people and supplies to co-ordinate and manage. No matter if yours is a wedding to rival the latest celebrity couple, or if it is simply ten of your closest friends and family: you still need a wedding plan. The most efficient way to do this is to use a wedding planning checklist. Make sure that you add discussing your wedding hairstyle with your stylist to your wedding checklist. This is best done some months from the big day - in fact the sooner the better. Many brides may need grow their hair, or work toward a new color to achieve the wedding hair style of their dreams.
- Allow yourself to shine. Just because nearly every bridal magazine you pick-up features brides with flowing tresses, don't feel that you have to emulate this. If you normally wear your hair short, you don't necessarily need to grow your hair for your wedding. If you're still laboring under the misconception that short hair does not make for a good bridal hair style then think Halle Berry and her halo of feminine curls. If you do want to grow your hair, then grow it, but don't do something just because you think that a bride should. Although this article outlines some general rules of thumb, remember that a bride with a flair for the dramatic and a strong personality can carry off pretty much anything.
- Communicate. Most cases of bridal wedding stress can be traced back to poor communication. Friction between a bride and pretty much anyone around her is not uncommon as the big day draws nearer. As a bride you need to be assertive and clear in communicating from the outset with those associated with the wedding plans. Most importantly communicate with your bridal party about their dresses, hair and make-up as soon as you possibly can. Discuss styles and preferences that you have, and make sure that it is something they are comfortable wearing. It is also important to decide early on, who is paying for what. If you want your bridal attendants to all visit a hair stylist to have their hair styled then you need to consider paying for them. If your bridesmaids are having matching hairstyles this is pretty much a necessity.
- Consider the whole picture. Resist the urge to be a magpie bride who grabs at anything that she finds appealing. This approach will only result in a bizarre medley of styles that do not necessarily gel. Instead, take a minute and consider what you want the theme or style of your wedding to be. Talk to your hairstylist as soon as you have decided on your overall theme - they can give you ideas on how to fit your hair style into the overall picture.
- Bridal Hair and Bridal Gowns Think about the line, density and texture of your gown when choosing your wedding hair style. It is best if the line of the dress matches the line of the hair. For example, a sleek bob tucked behind the ear or a bunch of curls piled on top of the head will complement a long slim gown. The density of the gown should also be carried through to your hair density. If you are wearing a flowing tulle gown, then flowing hair with soft curls will be great.
For many people, their wedding day is the most important day of their lives. To make it a magical day of sweet memories you need to plan and communicate well. The hairstyle you pick for your wedding day should make you feel confident and beautiful, because it is how you feel on the day that is most important. Feel beautiful and you will be beautiful.
