How to Choose your Hairstyle for your Wedding 

Hairstyles for your Wedding Day

If you’re about to get married, you’ll almost certainly hire a professional hairstylist. Your hairstyle for your wedding has a broader influence in creating the look that you want more than you would believe.

Finding perfect bridal hair is not as easy as you might think. The appearance of your face can be changed drastically by your hairstyle. So, which wedding-day hairstyle should you go with? Continue reading to find out.

Match It to Your Wedding Gown and Overall Aesthetic

Even if every hairstyle fits with the neckline and design of your wedding gown, there are several considerations to keep in mind before deciding on a hairstyle. The elegance of your gown, the venue you choose, and your overall wedding idea are all strong starting ideas for determining your bridal hairstyle.

The style of your hair should compliment your dress. Brides who want a more laid-back and natural style can keep their hair loose. If you wear a sleeveless gown or one with a low cut back, will you be comfortable with too much of your skin showing in an updo?  Or will you want it half up and half down?  If you have a high neck dress, will you want to cover the dress with your hair down or have an up-do?

When it comes to your wedding day, you want to feel at ease with how you will be styling your hair. Just as deciding the style of your gown, think about how you will feel in it and picture your hair with your personal style.  

Do Some Research and Ask Around

Before you jump to the hairdresser, do some research on what you might like. Bridal hairstyles are featured on Instagram, Pinterest boards, websites, and a variety of other wedding exhibitions. Take advantage of these to get a desired look that you want to try.

Find inspiration from celebrities with hair you dream of or search for their hairstylists to see their entire collections. You may also follow notable salons and stylists on social networking sites like Fabio Scalia Salon and bookmark your favorite photos.

Talking to other people may also help you in deciding on the best bridal hairstyle. If you’ve been to a few weddings, you’ve probably noticed a bride or two with really stunning hair. Call or text them to inquire about how they chose their ideal wedding hairstyle. They might be able to offer suggestions on what to test and what to avoid.

Schedule a Trial Appointment

If you don’t want to be disappointed with the appearance you choose, booking a trial visit or two is essential. Let’s say you’ve had your heart set on a big updo, but the results aren’t quite right. Your trial appointment is the moment to find out and not on your big day.

Experiment with different hairstyles, such as updos or flowing styles, you can accentuate it with a veil or a jeweled comb. Think about wearing a top with a matching neckline to your gown so you can visualize your entire look. We recommend coming in for a bridal consultation a couple months prior to your big day.
