10 Hairstyles To Consider For Your Wedding Day

Curls, buns and pearls, oh my!
By Renee Washington

There’s shoulder-scrapping hair, long cascading lengths, the half-up half-down, and we haven’t even touched on the hair colours you could try for wedding hairstyles. We know there’s enough to worry about on your big day, so we’re here to make sure we help cross at least one thing off the check list. When drawing up your ideal wedding look, hair is arguably one of the biggest considerations you’ll make. That, along with your make-up, nails and even your wedding fragrance, will work in perfect tandem to create one of the most important beauty looks you’ll ever wear.

Celebrities like Beyoncé made a volumous veil the moment and slicked back their hair, whilst Meghan Markle’s wedding hair couldn’t have been more simple, opting for a clean centre part and a low chignon for a wedding watched by the entire world.

With so many wedding hairstyles it can be overwhelming trying to make the right decision, but here are some things to consider:

The neckline of your wedding dress

Your choice of dress can greatly influence the style of your hair. For example, a low-cut dress would compliment a high pony or half-up half-down hairstyle, while a dress with a high neckline may look better with a low bun.

Think about your face shape

Your face shape can also help determine the best hairstyle for you. A voluminous up-do, for example, can help elongate a round face, whereas something layered may balance a longer face.

Choose a style that complements your overall look

Whatever hair-do you go for make it complement your overall wedding theme. Want a bohemian vibe? Waves or a messy bun could be your go-to. Equally, if you’re hosting a chic soirée try a curtain bang.

Consider adding accessories

Accessories can add some extra sparkle to your chosen wedding hairstyle. Some popular options include floral crowns, hairpins, and headbands. Just be sure to choose accessories that balance your overall look and don’t overpower your hairstyle.

Don’t forget about hair care

In the lead up to the wedding, haircare is essential. Make sure you avoid excessive heat styling, but do get regular trims and use deep conditioning treatments where necessary. This will help ensure that your hair looks healthy and shiny on your big day.

Test run

It’s always a good idea to do a trial run of your hairstyle before the wedding day. This will give you a chance to see how the style looks and feels, while helping you to make any necessary adjustments.
