10 Wedding Hair Do’s & Dont's

A wise lady once said “Your hair is the crown you never take off” When it comes to choosing how to wear your Wedding hair, this couldn’t be more true. Here is a handy list of Do’s & Dont's to help you on your way….

Do think about your dress. If your dress has a high neckline or an intricate back, wear it up – do something that shows off that beautiful dress, you’ll only get one chance! If it’s one shoulder, think about balance when placing your hair accessories or hairstyle.

Do play to your best features. If you feel self-conscious about your ears or your forehead, wear a hairstyle that hides them. Simples.

Don’t look at a photo of a hairstyle and expect that you can have exactly the same. Everyone has a different amount of hair and textures vary. Sometimes what works well on one person won’t always work on you but this doesn’t mean you can’t have something similar or use photos for inspiration.

Don’t be afraid of using clip in hair extensions. They may feel alien at first but professional grade extensions can be treated like your own hair and the colours can be matched exactly. Extensions will give you additional options of the type of sty

Don’t go too ‘on trend’. Something classic is timeless and will never date when looking back at photos. That goes for colour as well as style.

Do search with your hair type/texture/length when looking for styles. You will get a more accurate idea of what will work for your hair.

Do think about the style of your Wedding day – if its vintage go vintage, if its glam go glam!

Do take advice from someone who knows. Your bridal stylist is a specialist in their field. Work together to come up with a style you love and that looks great on you.

Do choose something that is likely to last all day. If your hair doesn’t hold curls very well, don’t wear your hair down with curls – your curls will be long gone by the first dance, even with the strongest hold hairspray!

Don’t forget to wear adornments. Wear a flower crown, a vintage beaded hairband or a beautiful comb, it will complete your bridal look and add something when photos are taken from behind.
