Wedding Pictures and Hair Style

While it’s the dress that makes the bride, it’s the hair that makes the look of the dress complete, adding that special finishing touch. Brides-to-be should recognize the importance of great hair on their wedding day.

Wedding hairstyles change like the wind, and while it’s important to keep on top of the latest trends and most popular updos for weddings, you also need to focus on finding a hairstyle that not only fits your dress, the time of year, and the theme of your wedding, but also you—in considering both your hair, and your personality.

Wedding Picture Hair Style

{mosimage}Not every wedding hairstyle will suit every bride. It becomes paramount to find the perfect hair arrangement that will complement your look on your special day. After all, you want to look your best, and there are so many wedding hairstyles to choose from that you’ll need to spend a considerable amount of time on this important part of “wedding planning.” It isn’t all about the dress.

There are a few steps you can follow to help you with wedding hairstyles. First, find a hairdresser. If you already have a regular hairdresser that you know, love and trust, stick with him or her. If you don’t have a hairdresser, start looking for a hairdresser several months in advance of your wedding so you can find someone that you like.

It’s helpful to ask for recommendations from your married friends and acquaintances, and to ask prospective hairdressers for samples of wedding hairstyles. You’ll also want to find someone within your budget range, who will still do a quality job.

Next, get a few ideas of what you might want as far as wedding hairstyles are concerned. Which wedding hairstyles will look the best on you? Instead of relying completely on your hairdresser, it’s a good idea to come up with a few ideas yourself. Think about your dress, your hair (is it long? short? thick? thin? curly? poker-straight?), your wedding in general, as well as your personality and personal tastes.

Once you’ve found the right stylist and a few ideas, set up a consultation appointment to discuss and try different wedding hairstyles. You can’t just expect to leave it until the big day and hope your hairdresser concocts and executes a stunning hair sensation that you’ll just adore. Wedding hairstyles require careful discussion, planning, and practice.

The consultation is where you can talk to your hairdresser about the different wedding hairstyle ideas you’ve had, and he or she can agree or disagree with your ideas, and suggest alternatives or other ideas. Bring a picture of your wedding dress, and together the two of you can come up with one or two wedding hairstyles that will suit your dress, your face, your hair type, and your preferences.

For example, if you have a very classic wedding dress and you prefer the classic look, an elegant updo might be perfect. If you have long, naturally wavy hair, you might consider wearing it down or trying a feminine and romantic half-do, leaving some hair down and some swept up in a loose updo, with fresh curls framing your face. This look would go well with a simple, flowing, romantic wedding gown.

If you’ve more of a daring and bold personality, and your hair is shorter or more “wild,” and you’ve chosen a funky dress, then the sky is the limit as far as wedding hairstyles go. You may want to select a more modern, edgy, trendy, or unique wedding hairstyle.

After your consultation, it’s time to practice, practice, practice! Called a hair trial, this is when your hairdresser attempts the wedding hairstyle the two of you agreed upon, usually about a month or so before the wedding—or sooner, if you want more than one trial run. This will help you see if you like the style, if it works with your face shape and hair type, if you think it will suit your dress, and if it’s comfortable.

Once you are happy with the wedding hairstyle and how your hairdresser has executed it, then you can relax and breathe easy until the big day. However, it’s important to remain relaxed and calm on your wedding day as well. Get your hair done as early as possible so you don’t feel stressed, hurried, and panicked.

If you follow these steps—and keep in mind that any wedding hairstyle will work as long as you love it and it suits you—the issue of your wedding hair will be an issue no more.
