When you are planning your wedding hairstyle, take into account the formality of the event.
Black-tie weddings are the most formal and call for an elegant updo. Sleek and structured will serve you best.
Formal or semi-formal weddings allow for a loose updo or a professional-looking half-up, half-down style.
The bride at a casual wedding should wear a loose, unstructured style that is still polished. Have a professional do your usual style so it looks a little more glamorous. Consider a sleek pony tail.
A beach wedding needs a style that can handle the sea breeze. Perhaps loose waves or tussled curls cascading over bare shoulders.
When you have your hair trial run, leave it in for at least a few hours, if not all day so you can be aware of any problems that may occur later on (frizz, uncurling, hair dropping, flat). Avoid washing your hair on the wedding day so it’s easier to manipulate. Don’t forget to wear a button-up shirt to your hair appointment so you don’t ruin the do as you change into your dress.
