Tips for Your Wedding Hairstyle

Wedding Hairstyle

Creating the perfect look for your wedding day requires the perfect hairstyle. Your hairstyle should match your fashion and your personality. Whether you choose an elegant updo or blown out luscious locks comes down to your unique style, the shape of your face, length of your hair, and your other wedding fashion details. We are sharing a few tips for your wedding hairstyle.

The Wedding Hairstyle is About Personality

Your wedding hairstyle is a reflection of your personality. However, it is not recommended that you wear your everyday hairstyle on your wedding day. You should do something a little differently, while matching your style. You might consider a look that allows you to quickly remove a hairpiece or pin and change it up between the ceremony and reception. An updo is undeniably sophisticated. Blowing out long flowing curls is dramatic and daring. Ponytails are fun. Braids and buns are intricate and elegant. Ultimately, you must choose a wedding hairstyle that expresses your personality and fits the occasion.

The Shape of Your Face

The shape of your face will influence your wedding hairstyle. The way you wear your hair will accentuate features and create illusions.

A rectangular face can be complimented by layered styles that frame the face or by blown out curls with volume. Choose a style that softens the jawlines and the forehead while avoiding elongating the face. Try to hide sharp corners. A romantic chignon would be a better choice than a high bun that would emphasize the jawline.

Oval shapes can pull off almost any wedding hairstyle. You might consider long locks or a short bob. Curls always add volume. Square-shaped faces have broad foreheads, wide cheekbones and strong jawlines. A side part with layers avoids sharp angles.

Heart-shaped faces have a broad forehead and cheekbones with a narrow chin. It is important to have balance between the brow and the lower half. Pixie cuts with a side part and textured ends or a bob will create the appearance of a fuller jawline.

Round faces require definition. Let the long layers begin at the jawline. A short side fringe can add length to the shape of the face.

Updo Your Wedding Hairstyle

An updo can take many shapes and create many looks. If you want to highlight your face, neck and shoulders, an updo will do it perfectly. Many brides choose this look with a strapless dress. A bun and all its variations are probably the most popular. A chignon is a classy variation of the standard bun that is worn loose at the base of the neck. Buns and chignons can be neat, messy, curled or braided to create a unique look. A French twist gathers the hair at the nape and twists the hair as it is pulled upwards into a clip or held with pins. The ends are tucked into the wrap to create a smooth vertical twist.

A Braided Wedding Hairstyle

Braids are versatile. They can be styled up as a wrapped bun or worn down as a long side braid. They can be neat, messy, stringed with ribbons or layered with flowers. Like the updo, braids complement a strapless dress and will highlight the neckline. A French braid is an intricate wedding hairstyle that gathers small sections of hair into a single braid, beginning at the crown and continuing downward. The braid can be tight and smooth or full and loose. The style of your braid and accessories are an opportunity to convey your personality.

Adding Extensions

Extensions can give you length for a longer hairstyle and add volume. Regardless of whether you wear your hair up, down or in a braid, adding extensions creates a dramatic look. If you dream of a long wedding hairstyle, extensions can help you achieve the look.
