Categories: Wedding Advice For Women
It goes without saying that there’s a lot that goes into a wedding and every small detail goes towards making it unique and memorable. So whilst the wedding dress is the main event for the bride, there’s something to be said for the other extra details which help to complete the bride’s look. From shoes, to make-up, to the lingerie and of course — the hair, which actually plays a bigger part than most people would think. After all, there’s something horribly soul destroying about spending hours picking the perfect wedding dress only to get stuck trying to find the perfect wedding hair to compliment it.
So to help you out, I've scoured the internet for some of the best “wedding hair inspos” that may just be the answer to your wedding hair woes...
Updo wedding hairstyles
The ideal style for a bride wanting something modern, simple, and elegant. These updo styles are anything but boring and really go with simple structured dresses. Also the best hairstyle if you want to wear a fascinator or Alice band for your big day. Saying that, due to the paired back nature of this hair style, you could always just go for a true modern princess look and wear a headpiece or tiara.
Recommended dress for this hairstyle: It’s the perfect hair for a shift dress, A-line or retro tea line wedding dress: simple and chic is always in style.
Wedding Hair Flowers
Flowers aren’t just for the bouquet you know! Wedding hair flowers are a great way to inject some colour and texture into your wedding ensemble. Obviously the flowers can be real or silk wedding flowers. But they should always be coordinated with the rest of your floral wedding scheme! Not that I don’t appreciate hair jewels for a bridal look: I do! I just think that when it comes to beautiful adornments— some of the best are made organically by Mother Nature herself.
Recommended dress for this hairstyle: If it’s a warm wedding then go for a strappy trumpet number or a V-neck empire line dress. Alternatively if you’re having a winter wedding then that doesn’t mean you can’t wear flowers in your hair! Just make them real rustic and team them with an A-line wedding dresses in rich and opulent fabrics like velvet, tweed or taffeta.
Diamond wedding hairstyles
I talk about Mother Nature and flowers but sometimes you just can’t beat some shiny bling bling. So if you’re the kind of bride who prefers something glitters her hair for her big day (and who could blame you? — I mean when else is it acceptable to wear a tiara all day??) Then take inspiration from these coronet cuddling hairstyles that will really show off all that sparkle.
Recommended dress for this hairstyle: Mermaid or Trumpet. This style requires you to look immaculate and perfectly polished. Think sleek, elegant and graceful – like Grace Kelly.
Princess wedding hairstyles
Out of all of the styles this has got to be the most OTT of them all, but oh my isn’t it gorgeous? This is the look you go for if you’re wearing a classic princess style dress. I’m talking an A-line tulle, sweet heart neckline number here; the kind of dress that most of us wanted when we were a little girls. So if you're lucky enough to be able to find the perfect princess dress for your big day then make sure you hair compliments your dress. Because in this case, larger than life is just the right size!
Recommended dress for this hairstyle: A-line, strapless or ball gown, puffy princess dresses that wouldn’t look out of place in a Disney prciness film.
Plaited and braided wedding hairstyles
I think braids and plaits don’t get as much recognition as they should: they can be some of the most complex hairstyles to create. So if you’re thinking of rocking a plaited look for your wedding then make sure you wear the right dress: it has to exude a relaxed but pretty vibe but look dressy enough not to be mistaken for just a regular dress.
