Hello! Welcome to Makeup In The 702! In our last blog we talked about planning your bridal makeup, this week we’re discussing planning your bridal hairstyle.
Planning your wedding is full of “bridal moments” and finding that perfect hairstyle is probably among those at the top of the list. For some of us we’ve been planning this since we were little girls. Playing dress up with our girlfriends, using an old scarf as a veil, and just trying things on for size during our own “secret girl moments”.
This time though as your pinning your favorites it’s for real and just like planning your makeup when planning your hair, the first thing you should consider is your personal style. Do you prefer long whipping curls or a controlled fuss free look? Do you typically wear your hair up or down?
The choice are endless, from updos to half up, to braids or accessories and lets not forget that tiara or floral crown. Afterall your wedding day look/hairstyle is your crowning moment.
A picture is worth a thousand words when you meet with your stylist it’s the easiest way to communicate your vision.
Plan for your other accessories as well, perhaps your wearing your grandmothers pearls on your wedding day or a special pair of earrings, then an up do or a braided look that accents your neckline might be an ideal option for you.
Do you want or need extensions for your wedding day? Find out everything you need to know about extensions here we’ve done all of the homework for you.
The weather is something you must consider for your look especially if your planning an outdoor wedding or planning a wedding in a destination that has significantly different climate than your hair is used to.
Matching your theme and venue, if your planning a wedding of elaborate elegance then a classic updo would be a timeless choice however, if your planning an outdoor country chic affair then a half up or a braided look would incorporate well. Adding your florals to your hairstyle is a simple and subtle way of tying your theme together with other accents at your wedding.
Lastly, schedule a trial! Your stylist has the ability to help you see your style from all angles giving you that 360-degree vision. Plan ahead and schedule your trial in conjunction with dress fitting or one of your pre-wedding day photo shoots such as an engagement shoot, wedding dress shoot or even a boudoir shoot.
