Wedding Hairstyles for Brides – Choose Early

The Little Wedding Guide, Guest Author

Whether your wedding is coming up next month or next year, choosing the right hairstyle is something that you’ve probably thought about once or twice. Start collecting ideas for wedding hairstyles now, and pick several for your hair trial.

hairstyle1Here are a few tips to help you decide upon the perfect hairstyle for the big day.

hairstyle2The tools you’ll need:

1. A few bridal magazines. If you haven’t started thinking about the day-of “do,” one of the best places to start looking for hairstyle ideas is in bridal magazines. Hairstyling magazines are okay, but normally don’t have a lot of real bridal updos to browse through. See if you can find a few good glossy magazine pages to work from and save them to show to your stylist.

2. A little online research. This step should be a fun one – it’s easy to get overwhelmed with online photos, though, so stick to the basics and when you find a few photos of wedding hairstyles you like, go with them!

3. Look for photos on Pintrest.

Hint: You can Google terms like “wedding hairstyles,” etc., and then click on “Images” in the left sidebar next to the search results – this will show you literally thousands of photos that match your search term.

hairstyle3Some tips for your first hair trial appointment.

When discussing updos with your hair stylist, keep in mind that your profile will be facing your guests throughout most of the ceremony, as you face your fiancé. If you have medium-length to long hair, pulling it back or up on the top of your head (at least the front sections) will let your guests be able to see your beautiful and happy face, and not just a head full of hair. They want to see your beautiful smile, trust me!

When you have some styling ideas in mind, it’s a good idea to schedule a hair trial no later than about a month or so before the wedding. That will give you some built-in time to make changes to the final style if necessary.

Most importantly, be sure to bring your veil, headpiece, and anything else that you’ll be wearing on the day of the wedding to your hair trial appointment. Having a friend there with you to take a few pictures of your new style helps a lot too, just in case you decide you’d like to discuss any changes with your stylist before your final hair appointment.
