Wedding Hair Tips: Long, Medium, and Short Hair Help!
Bridal hairstyles need to reflect the brides' personality
and personal style. The "natural" days are finally
ending as today's bride looks for "more" from her
wedding day salon services. More fun, more beauty, and more
individuality are what brides are in search of. Creative personal
touches help originate a "signature touch" for the
couples' big day.
If your hair is long and you wear it pulled back most of the
time than an elegant Updo would be just the look. Incorporate
a detail from your gown into your hair design. Details such
as braiding or twisting of fabric can be duplicated into the
hairstyle. Or look to the texture of the dress.
A soft wispy hairstyle complements a full-skirted tulle gown.
A smooth gown of a heavy weight fabric is complemented by
a smooth, shiny hairstyle of knots or rolls. Do you wear your
long hair down most of the time? Then try wearing some of
it up away from your face and leave the rest to cascade around
your shoulders. Let few tendrils escape to float around your
face, they can be curled or left natural. Having it all down
is just too casual for the big day.
Tip: Natural curls? Enhance them and work
with them; keep your look soft. Straight hair? Don’t
expect a set to last all day, wear it up. If the curls are
pinned in place there will be less worry.
If your hair is medium in length it can be curled and worn
with a sparkly headband or tiara to dress it up. Or simply
tuck some hair behind your ears and use one of the very popular
decorative hair clips to hold it back. With the help of a
talented stylist, your hair can also be worn up.
Tip: If your dream is to wear it up and you
have a few months grow it out, go for it. Medium hair is versatile,
try a few looks with your stylist at least a few months ahead
of time. This helps to chart out the growing process.
Believe me there is lots that can be done! Dust off your curling
iron and give your hair some fullness in the crown area and
back. Don't curl the front, it won't look like you. Flatter
fronts are in right now so sweep the hair off to the side
and save the curls for the back area. Today's "curls"
are for creating texture. Many hair products on the market
are designed for "texturizing the hair" not necessarily
Tip: Don't touch the curls while they are
warm, it will loosen them up too much. Once cooled run your
finger through your hair with some hair wax and pinch and
place the "texture" where you want it! Don't brush
them out it will look too poufy, frizzy, and (Horror!) dated!!
Top your do with a tiara or a few hair clips and you are ready
