Tips for a Perfect Hair Style for the Perfect Bride

Every bride dreams of that perfect wedding. And if you’re like most brides, you want to look amazing on your big day with not a hair out of place, literally!

Here are some tips to follow for a perfect hair style on your special day -- from the time you walk down the aisle to when you finally make a dramatic exit as a newlywed.

Pick your style

First of all, decide on the overall look that you want to achieve on your wedding day. Sounds pretty simple, but its really a bit difficult when you have so many gorgeous hairstyles to choose from. Creating a vision or Pinterest board of bridal hairstyle ideas and inspiration will help you select and articulate the vibe you’re going after.

Match the tress with your dress

When choosing a bridal hairstyle, consider the material, neckline, cut, and yes, even the intricate details of your wedding gown. Ethereal gowns that use plenty of lace, tulle or chiffon go perfectly well with a half-up, half-down hairstyle. Classic gowns with a Sabrina or high neckline call for an up-do such as a stunning chignon or a neat low bun, and braids work well with romantic and whimsical boho dresses.

Harmonise with bridal accessories

Are you planning to wear a veil, a tiara, a floral halo, bridal comb or hair jewellery? Whatever you choose to adorn your beautiful locks, make sure they create a harmonious look with your dress and your hairstyle of choice. If you’re not entirely sure how to incorporate your bridal accessories, take them with you when you go for a consultation with your hairstylist.

Consider your hair type

Different hairstyles work well with different hair types. Take into account the length, texture, and volume of your hair. If you have natural curly hair, it’s best to flaunt than hide it. Long hair is more versatile and could be braided, swept on one side, or pulled up in a ponytail. If you struggle with your hair type, consider using hair extensions. They are like magic and can give you the perfect bridal halo you’ve always dreamed of.

Choose a hairstylist and do a trial run

Find a hairstylist who is patient enough to listen and is willing to go through the creative process with you. Once you’ve chosen, do a trial run so you’re certain you get the hairstyle that works best for you. Take someone along with you for a second opinion and to take photos or videos so your hairstylist will remember exactly how you should look on your big day.

Treat your hair right

You can’t just wake up on your wedding day with magically perfect hair! Start preparing your hair well in advance, preferably at least six months. Go for natural, chemical-free hair products and deep conditioning treatments every two weeks to rejuvenate hair. Avoid colouring, perming or cutting your hair for the week prior to your big day. The last thing you want is a major hair disaster days before your wedding!

Weather-proof and keep hair looking great all day

Don’t let the elements rain on your parade! Whether it’s a windy, sunny, cold, or rainy day, make sure your stylist works practical magic so your hair stays immaculate until you wave your guests goodbye. Hairsprays, pins, and corkscrews will help keep your hair in place. This is also where halo hair extensions would do the job perfectly, giving you extra confidence to even pull an all-nighter on the dance floor!
Don’t let bad hair ruin your walk down the aisle. Follow these tips and you’re sure to find the perfect hairstyle for your big day.
