Hairstyles & Trends

2009 marks a New Year and a new wedding season, fresh with wedding hairstyles to make any bride’s wedding dreams come true. Once your special guy has officially popped the question, there is so much to think about – the venue, the dress, the music, the catering, and oh yes, the hair.

Preparing and Planning

Planning for your big day definitely means thinking about how you want to do your hair. There are so many options for wedding hairstyles, but your best bet is to find a hairstylist that does wonderful work and, most of all, that you trust. If you already have a stylist in mind, consult with that person about various wedding hairstyles that might work best for you. Your hairstylist may also have the inside scoop on some of the best 2009 wedding updos .

One of the most important aspects of choosing your hairstylist early is to work with that person on a few practice sessions. Starting this a few months before the big day will ensure that you’ve tried out a few wedding hairstyles – this helps you determine how the wedding updos look on you, fit with your veil (if you have one), and how long it will last through a day. Be sure to take a few photos of your test to show the photographer and make-up artist as well!

Finding the Right Wedding Hairstyle

Finding inspiration for the best 2009 wedding updos isn’t going to be as hard as you think. All you need to do is flip through a few of the latest hairstyle and bridal magazines and keep your eye on the latest fashion trends. The latest runway and fashion show photographs will also give you a little insight on what’s hot for 2009. Remember, the hairstyle you choose doesn’t have to be called a “wedding updo”; it just has to fit your taste and style. Most importantly, you must love it!

Popular Trends for 2009 Updos

This wedding season, the hottest 2009 wedding updos will be complemented by gorgeous hair accessories. Gone are the days of the simple bobby pin. 2009 will be marked with intricate yet delicate hair accessories which combine metalwork, embroidery, and crystals shaped into flowers, hearts, and even wings. Although this may sound gaudy, take a look at Karl Lagerfeld’s latest runway show and you will see the exact opposite. Details do not always translate to tacky.

Popular wedding hairstyles for stylish brides will be soft and sexy. For those brides with long hair, it will be twisted around the head, with a slight messiness much like typical Grecian hairstyles that we all know and love. This is both sexy and romantic. Looking too put-together is definitely out for 2009. Key looks for 2009 wedding updos are “soft,” “pretty,” “romantic,” “tousled,” and “feminine.” The best way to achieve this look is to work with your hairstylist on an Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly hairstyle that is a little looser and very chic.

Popular Trends for Wearing Your Hair Down

If you have short hair, going with hair extensions in 2009 is out. These can seem overly tacky and unnatural. This year is all about being “real” and real is sexy. So, if you have short hair, you will be wearing it down, but it doesn’t have to be plain and boring. Since hair accessories are chic this year, why not think about a pretty hair pin or complement your face shape with a tasteful tiara or simple veil.

For those of you with long hair, wearing it long and in curls is always in style. But in an effort to make it look modern, remember to add a bit of texturing product to your hair so that you can move away from being too prim and prepared (which is oh-so-nineties). The hottest 2009 wedding hairstyles for the long-tressed are big volume, large barrel curls that have a very natural look. This can easily be achieved at home with some good heated rollers or by working with your hairstylist and plenty of hairspray (but be sure to use a texturing, soft spray or you will be remembered as the bride with the “hair helmet.”)

Having the perfect hairstyle on your wedding day can make you feel like the princess you should be. It will make you feel sexy, gorgeous, and self-assured – who needs to worry about their hair on the most important day ever? Take a few months to really think about what you want and work with your hairstylist so that you can really wow the crowd (and your honey) when you walk down that aisle.
