About to tie the knot? You can make heads turn with the right choice of updo. Women set to walk down the aisle can choose from a wide array of the most alluring wedding hairstyles.
Some Popular Choices
While some brides may want to exude a look that’s thoroughly modern, others may want a retro or old Hollywood hairstyle. Some females go for a classic bun, while there are those who opt for other simple yet elegant wedding hairstyles. Also popular, especially for destination weddings, is the sideswept style with flowing shoulder-length curls.
Which Bridal Coif Styles Suit You
Most brides pattern their wedding hairstyles after their favorite Hollywood celebrities, but this can lead to disastrous results. Keep in mind that your body build, your facial features, and overall personality, not to mention your wedding theme, destination and ambience must come into the picture when choosing a bridal coif.
You can look bewitching, or exude a sweet & romantic look, or pull off a bohemian look, especially if your personality goes with your chosen hairstyle. On the other hand, you can channel your inner diva & transform into an enchanting princess or ultra-glamorous seductress, and get admiring glances with the right combination of wedding gown, accessories and bridal coif.
Pretty Styles for the Long & Short
Have long tresses? Wedding hairstyles for long hair are as varied as the vast assortment of bridal gowns. A long tousled look may be nice for a beach wedding, bohemian style nuptial, or a Goth wedding.
If you have attractive & strong facial features, a semi-loose but elegant side braid may look ravishing. There are many creative possibilities for brides who desire a lovely, fuss-free wedding hairstyle for long hair. Among the favorites for formal weddings is the French twist.
Women with soft features and short hair may look striking with loose curls or a relaxed updo with wisps of hair hanging loose, or a sideswept bun. Brides who are daring enough to go for a flirty, go-anywhere look may opt for a nice messy bob. Choosing a wedding hairstyle for short hair can be effortless, but most brides still get a stylist’s expert opinion.
Factors to Consider
Personal taste, budget (in most cases), and the wedding gown style are some of the main factors to consider when choosing wedding hairstyles. Most brides with funds to spare leave it to their stylists to fix their hair.
Simple classic updos may be perfect for brides who will be wearing a sexy gown, like a strapless A-line option with a crisscross back. Such wedding hairstyles also go well with dramatic earring accessories.
Most women who have decided on a romantic or conservative look, like a wedding gown consisting of a veil with lace appliques, or a tulle & lace fit-&-flare gown, opt for the classic knot or updo.
Simple bridal updos can also be accessorized with sparkly things like a comb with crystals or rhinestones. Tiaras and other headpieces with pearls may go well with gowns embellished with pearls.
The venue of the wedding is also a consideration when choosing bridal hairstyles. Pretty updos like loose chignon with natural floral accents such as sprigs of lily are great for rustic outdoor or garden weddings. On the other hand, sophisticated-looking updos like the classic twist, a vintage glam look with braided hair extension, the sleek chignon, or even a sleek, high ponytail with simple glittering accessory may be stunning, particularly for formal indoor wedding events.
