Wedding day. It's every little girl's dream and it's now become your reality. With so much planning, scheduling, decorating, and cake tasting, have you thought about what hairstyle you want on your wedding day? Your entire ensemble is extremely important on this big day, as your pictures will framed on your wall for many decades to come. If you've been sweating this and can't figure out some good bridal hairstyles to rock on your big day, use this as a starting point. Here are 5 bridal hairstyles that you can't go wrong with.
1. Soft Curls
A soft curl is elegant and romantic and also laid back. While the soft curl wedding hairstyle is beautiful and comfortable, it won't leave you checking to see if you have lost one of the ten thousand bobby pins that have been placed in your hair like with other wedding hairstyles. Think this one is right for your big day? Talk to your hairstylist plenty of months in advance to start bouncing some ideas off each other and so that you can get his or her professional opinion on what kind of prep needs to be done. For girls with thin, fine hair you may find that you will rock this look best investing in some hair extensions or utilizing a hair growth/thickening treatment like Kenra's Platinum Thickening Conditioner in the months before. Talk to your stylist and get their professional opinion so you look great on the big day.
2. Floral Pinned Updo
A professionally executed updo can be one of the most stunning hairstyles you have on your wedding day. What makes it even better is pinning delicate flowers around it for beautiful accents. A good pre-wedding hair appointment tip is to bring in a picture of your color scheme at your consultation and trial run so that your hairstylist can use their professional opinion (or just take your direction) and select the right colored flowers to pin in your hairstyle. Whether you want just a few flowers strewn here and there or a whole bouquet atop your head, floral accents are a great bridal hairstyle choice.
3. Dipped in Diamonds
While there will be one main diamond focus on your big day (the ring!) it can't hurt to add a few extra ones here and there for good measure, right? Consider adding (fake) diamond accents to your hairstyle to really catch the light while you say your "I Do's". Whether you opt for something dollar store priced or a Swarovski hair pin, talk to your hairstylist about the best ways to incorporate them into your updo and which brands or shapes they recommend to wear on your wedding day.
4. Traditional Updo
While the name "traditional updo" might sound a bit boring, there are many different exciting options for this hairstyle. Bring in a couple of pictures to give your hairstylist a good starting point and then let them customize it to fit your look perfectly. Just keep in mind that this hairstyle might require a bit more maintenance during your wedding, as well as some good product to keep it held firm all day long. Speak with your stylist about their recommendations to keep your look on point from morning until night.
5. Big Hair, Don't Care
Think Priscilla Presley on her wedding day to the late Elvis (okay, maybe not THAT big), but big hair on your wedding day can be a sexy, sultry choice. Look through some pictures that catch your eye and bring them into your hairstylist to talk about what needs to be done to pull the look off perfectly. They might recommend investing in a good product to hold the look firm, some hair extensions, or other hair tools to prep your hair with.
Which of these really caught your eye? Whether you are keeping your hair in a traditional updo or going all out with some big and beautiful wedding hair, none of these wedding hairstyles will have you looking back in 50 years thinking you should have done something else with your hair. Have fun on your big day and best of luck!
