Wedding Hairstyles for Couture Wedding Dress

One of the more important decisions a bride has to make regarding her overall bridal image is her choice of wedding hairstyle. The wedding hairstyle is essential to the overall 'look' of the wedding day.

What kind of wedding dress was picked for the wedding day? Is the wedding dress soft and romantic, Grecian styled or more traditional? It is really important that the bride feels comfortable on her wedding day.

Many brides choose the classic up-do. It is a lovely bridal hairstyle. But the half-up hairstyle is also a great alternative to the updo hairstyle. It allows you to create a little bit of height at the back of your hair, while still having some softness around your face. Soft curls are popular at the moment and are good for creating more volume.

Wedding Hairstyles - 7 Tips For Your Wedding Day Tresses
By Cori Russell

Want to ensure your wedding day style is a hair "do," and not a hair "don't". Then read on!

1. Do your research

This is the fun part. Take some time to explore your options before settling on one hairstyle. Browse wedding and other style magazines, and visit the wedding hairstyles gallery to get inspired.

2. Complement Your Look

Your wedding hairstyle should flatter your dress and overall look - not complete with it. Use your dress style and the formality of the event as your guide. Dresses with halter necklines, ballgown silhouettes, or plunging backs practically scream for an updo. An unbuttoned beachside affair calls for long loose waves. You get the idea.

3. Know Yourself

Your face greets you in the mirror every morning, and you and your hair go way back, so chances are you already know which hairstyles flatter your face and which fall flat. Even if you don't, here are some pointers: A long, thin face will look more so with a long, straight 'do, and ears that stick out a tad too far will be accentuated by a pulled back 'do. Along those lines, don't attempt a look that isn't you just because it's your wedding. Remember - your goal should be to look like your best version of you, not someone else.

4. Heed the Weather

Make sure your wedding hairstyle will work with the day's weather conditions. This tip is especially crucial for weddings in humid climates. Do yourself - and your hair - a favor; don't force a curly mane into a sleek straight 'do for an outdoor New Orleans wedding in July.

5. Get the Right Length

Remember that many of the wedding hairstyles shown in magazines require long hair. The good news is that longer tresses can be achieved both naturally and artificially. You can either start growing it early or use clip-on extensions for added volume and length on the big day.

6. Book Your Stylist

If you love your usual stylist and are getting married locally, make sure he or she is available on your date. Otherwise, start auditioning stylists for the big day. Many hair stylists also offer makeup services and are willing to travel, while others do not.

7. Work with the Veil

Don't forget that your hairstyle and veil must work well together, so you'll really need to plan one around the other. If you've already got the veil, bring it to your stylist before the wedding so he/she can create a style that complements both you and the headpiece. Of if you're set on a certain hairstyle, have your stylist do a trial run on the same day that you plan to shop for your veil. This way you can easily determine what style of veil will work best.
