How to Create Beautiful Wedding Hairstyles

How to Create Beautiful Wedding Hairstyles

Planning a wedding is not an easy task because it involves many small events and decisions to make concerning the big day, including wedding hairstyles. With the many wedding planners available everywhere, many brides believe there is a magic formula to determine what they should wear such as long hairstyles, short hairstyles, or even hair extensions.

No, there is no such formula, nor right or wrong answers because it is YOUR wedding day, and only you can decide among the many wedding hairstyles, to make this day a big and unforgettable event that it is expected to be. Selecting the perfect hairstyle yourself should be an easy task because nobody better than you knows how good or bad you feel when you look in the mirror.

If you feel, there are too many things on your mind and too little time to accomplish them, get help from professional stylists, avoiding the confusion over what are best, short hairstyles, long hairstyles or a particular hairdo requiring hair treatment, coloration and even the use of hair extensions.

Creating beautiful wedding hairstyles is easy after browsing through the numerous bridal printed magazines or available on the Internet. Who else better than you can knows if you want to wear your hair up, down, curled or straight? Do not worry at all if you have no idea, because if you start planning your hairdo shortly after the engagement announcement, you will have plenty of time to ask your salon for a trial until you are satisfied with the chosen hairstyle.


Long hairstyles are still the favorites of most brides, because they add sophistication and elegance to a wedding ceremony and reception accordingly. However, do not make the mistake of losing your personal identity by choosing wedding hairstyles that have nothing to do with your own personality.

Go for casual, romantic long hairstyles or practical, modern short styles if you feel that any of them match your own style. The only exception, perhaps, is when you are wearing short hair but you want a fashionable long hairstyle or up-do, although this problem can be resolved if you let you hair grow in plenty of time or opt using hair extensions.

When a wedding is meant to be celebrated with a small number of family members and closest friends, many brides do not worry, as much about their overall attire since there will not be any camera operators, many relatives, circumstantial friends or even strangers to pay attention on details like their hair.

That thought is a big mistake; the wedding day is the bride and groom's day. Disregard who is attending the event, give yourself the gift of choosing between the wedding hairstyles that make you feel like a queen, whether you chose from long hairstyles, short hairstyles, or fancy hairdos made with hair extensions.

Tips For Choosing Your Wedding Hair Style

Tips For Choosing Your Wedding Hair Style


Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day. After all, this will be the most important day of her life. This is where she and her groom will pronounce their vow of love for each before their family, relatives and friends. This is so important that even a very good-looking girl wants to look better, or something different from how she looks every day.
Choosing how you should look during a wedding can be very risky. If you were not advised by a professional, this is not the time to try on new make up and hairstyle trends - unless you wanted to end up as one with the worst wedding fashion.

So, to be on the safe side, it is better to enlist the help of a professional stylist to do your makeup and hairstyle.
Here are some tips to help you on what look you will be having on your wedding day.
* Choose natural-looking makeup, as you don't want to look heavily painted especially when people come to wish you well. However, you should also make sure that even if you are wearing natural-looking makeup, this still looks well when your picture is taken.
* Get a facial to help eliminate the stress in preparing for the wedding and to cleanse your skin, in preparation for the big day.
* Make sure that you have enough time to prepare your hair. Usually, you may need about six weeks before the wedding to make minor changes to your hair. If you will be changing your hairstyle, hair color, or length, you may need up to six months.
* Make an appointment with a hairdresser recommended by your family and friends, or with your own hairdresser. It is better to bring pictures of the dress, headpiece and the hairstyles that you would like to try. Also, discuss with the hairdresser what will be the appropriate color, texture and the style.

* If you are thinking of having your hair permed or relaxed, ask the hairstylist if he or she thinks this will not damage your hair. Damaged hair will not look good and will be difficult to style. If you wanted to try this, make sure that you still have enough time to experiment and to undo it if it doesn't look good.
* If you are thinking of dyeing your hair, consider if the color will compliment your skin color and the color of your eyes. It is better to ask the help and suggestions of a professional for this. When dyeing, use a temporary dye first.
* Your hairstyle should go well with the cut of your gown. If you have a simple gown, choose an uncomplicated hairstyle. Choose a hairstyle that will be comfortable and will not be difficult to maintain since you will have a lot of things to take care of on the wedding day.
* If you have short hair, you may add highlights to enhance the richness. You may also have hair treatments or try products that will add shine. You can also try a multi-textured look. Flowers also look good on short hair.
* If you have a long hair, it is suggested that you wear your hair up for an elegant look and to minimize the need for maintaining it, since you will be busy the whole day.
Now that you have these tips, you have more information when your hairstylist starts making suggestions on how to make you look great on your wedding day.

How to Pick the Perfect Wedding Veil

There are really only two occasions where a modern Western woman is likely, even expected, to wear a veil. One is when she is in mourning or attending a funeral. The other is on her wedding day. The history of the wedding veil dates back to biblical times and there are numerous interpretations of its symbolism.

photo credit: globe-views.com
One popular interpretation is that the veil represents long, flowing hair, which brides used to wear down their backs to symbolize chastity. Another traces it back to the early Romans who used it to protect the bride-to-be from evil spirits on her big day. Yet another story swears that the veil was used to hide the bride's face so that the groom at an arranged marriage couldn't back out if he didn't like what he saw. Remember, the veil is only lifted after the couple is pronounced man and wife!

But whatever its origin, the wedding veil remains an important accessory in most Western weddings. In this article, we will review a few basic tips that will hopefully help you select the perfect veil.

Material
Traditional wedding veils were made from tulle, but lace, satin and silk have become increasingly popular options. Additionally, many veils are now adorned with pearls, crystals, rhinestones or embroidery. The length of the veil often depends upon the length of the bride-to-be's hair.

Hair
Brides that want to showcase their professional hairstyle often choose a veil that fastens underneath their coiffure. As you might expect, shorter veils are more manageable, which makes them the only choice for brides who choose to wear them throughout the entire event.

Length
As mentioned, if you plan to wear you veil for hours on end, it should be light and short. But if you are planning on wearing it only at the ceremony, it may be a good idea to go all out. Long, flowing veils are called cathedral veils and they descend about 3.5 yards from the headpiece. The shorter, more functional veil is called a blusher and it is the popular choice for warm weather weddings.

Pictures
Many brides make the mistake of removing their veils immediately after the ceremony. To ensure that this classic accessory appears in most of the pictures, it is important to leave it on until after the first dance.

Prioritize
As important as the wedding veil is, remember that it is just an accessory. And as such, it should never overshadow your wedding dress. Rather, it should complement it. As a general rule, the more elaborate the gown, the less elaborate the veil.

Venue
The less formal your ceremony, the less formal your veil should be. An outdoor ceremony on the grass or sand will likely include a fairly informal dress, which means that you will want an informal veil, like a blusher or a flyaway.

Color
Unlike your shoes, the veil does not have to match the color of the wedding dress exactly. In fact, most brides prefer veils that are a shade or two lighter or darker than their gowns. In general, however, a bride-to-be should not choose a veil that is a different color from her dress. It will detract from the gown, which should rightly be the center of attention.

Budget
The average veil costs about as much as the average pair of bridal shoes. According to a recent survey, the average price is $274. Of course, there are adequate wedding veils that can be purchased on the cheap. For less than fifty dollars, the frugal bride-to-be can find a short, one-layer veil that is made from either netting or tulle. For $150 and up, she should be able to locate a fingertip-length tulle veil that has a few embellishments, like ribbon, embroidery or pearl trim. Finally, for $300 and up, a bride-to-be can purchase a multi-layered veil of almost any length that is adorned with lace or beads and is made of high-quality silk tulle.

Styles
We will now take a moment to review the most popular styles of wedding veils.

Blusher
Easily the most popular and most informal veil, the blusher is a short, single-layer accessory that is worn over the bride's face during the ceremony and then flipped back before the kiss.

Flyaway
The most formal of the casual veils, the flyaway is a multi-layered, shoulder-length veil that is light enough to be worn at warm weather weddings.

Elbow
As you may have guessed, this formal accessory reaches all the way down to the bride's elbows, but does not overshadow the dress. It is actually quite popular for casual weddings.
Finger Tip

Another obvious anatomical appellation, the finger-tip veil falls all the way down to the bride-to-be's finger-tips when her arms are handing naturally. It is a formal veil that is often only worn as an accessory to elaborate ball gowns.

Cathedral
Also called the royal veil, it is the most formal of all wedding veils. When left to fall naturally, it extends a full 3.5 yards from the headpiece and is often worn with a cathedral-length train.

Wedding Hairstyles For Medium Length Hair

Wedding Hairstyles For Medium Length Hair



A woman's hair is often referred to as her "crowning glory". On no day will this be more true than your wedding day. If you have medium length hair, you will find that there are many hairstyles available to you. It is just a matter of picking the right one.

There are several things to consider when deciding on your wedding hairstyle. The first is the formality of your wedding. Just as a stiff updo might look out of place at a backyard barbeque, wearing your hair loose might seem underdone at a cathedral ceremony. It is important to match your hairstyle to both the formality of your bridal gown and your wedding location.

Another thing to keep in mind will be weather conditions. If your hair wilts in the heat, forgo the big loose curls that will fall flat before you even finish exchanging your vows. You may also find that on a hot day, it will be cooler to have your hair up off of your neck. Getting married on a windswept beach? Then pull the front of your hair back to keep it from blowing in your face.

The length of your hair will be another determining factor. Brides with medium length hair are lucky, because they can choose almost any style. It is long enough to pull up, yet short enough that it won't be unruly or messy looking when worn down.

One of the most popular wedding hairstyles for brides with medium length hair is the half up look. In this hairdo, the stylist will pull the front of the bride's hair back, and leave the rest flowing down. This look tends to work well for any formality of wedding. Having the hair shaped into a definitive style makes it polished enough for a more formal wedding, but having some of the hair left soft and flowing makes the half up style feel feminine and un-stuffy, as well. It is the best of both worlds.

One advantage of the half up style over leaving all of your hair down is that it makes it easy to anchor the bridal jewelry that you have chosen for your hair. You can wear a twinkling crystal tiara or headband for the most dressy look. If you prefer vintage styles, then a rhinestone comb would be perfect tucked into the side of your hair. You can also wear a comb on the top of your head with feminine details such as porcelain flowers for a romantic effect. Just be certain that the bridal jewelry you choose for your hair coordinates with the rest of your wedding jewelry.

Brides with medium length hair can certainly wear almost any type of updo for their wedding. An updo is often considered to be very formal, but it doesn't have to be. It can be simple and chic, like a classic chignon. It can also be more relaxed, such as a messy bun with little loose tendrils. There are a couple of good reasons to think about wearing your hair all up. One is that your hair will be under control and out of your face for the entire wedding. The other one is that wearing your hair up allows you to showcase a beautiful bridal necklace.

Whichever way you choose to wear your hair for your wedding, be certain to have a trial run. This will give you the chance to see how you like the style with your wedding gown. When your hair looks perfect, you know that you will feel beautiful on your wedding day.

Making your own flowers can be a very fun project and it is easy to do, but you do have to have patience and enjoy crafting. If you don't, maybe you have a relative or friend that will make it for you.

Fabric flowers can be easily attached to a hair comb or alligator clip by sewing or gluing. A headband is another popular choice. It can be a thin width band that is the color of your hair or a wider satin covered headband.

Fresh flowers can be easily attached to a hair comb or alligator clip with florist wire. It is important to mist it and keep the flower in water and in a cool place for as long as possible.

To make a fresh flower clip for your hair, cut the stem very short. Insert a piece of florist wire through the stem. Insert another wire across from the first one to form an X. Bend the wires down to form a "stem" and wrap the wire with floral tape. Attach to the clip or comb.

Headbands can also be decorated with pearls, crystals, feathers, and flowers. A pave setting of crystals or pearls can be glued onto a satin covered headband. This is a very luxurious looking headband especially if the dress has the same embellishments. Feathers or flowers can either be glued or sewn in place.
As you can see, with a few supplies you really can create lovely one of a kind wedding flowers for your hair!

Tips For Creating Sexy Wedding Hair

Your wedding hairstyle can make or break your entire wedding look.  Whether you choose to wear your hair up or down, will depend on your style of dress, your headpiece and what you are most comfortable in.  Soft hair is pretty hair and your husband to be should see you in a hairstyle that is recognizable, fun and touchable.  If you don't normally wear your hair in a tied back bun with layers of shellac, chances are your groom doesn't want to see you that way - he wants to see the real you!

You want your wedding hair to be trendy, fun and super sexy.  Your hair can be long, loose and cascading down your shoulders or pulled back and low - but the secret to sexy modern wedding hair is soft touchable texture.  Rumpled waves are all the trend now, think soft curls framing your face and shoulders.  It can be messy and windblown, or perfectly delicate waves - unstructured and carefree.  Use a 1" barrel curling iron and volumizing mousse to seal the curl and direction.  Finish with a sheer hold hairspray with memory to "lock" your look into place without drowning it in heavy gloss.

If you choose to wear your wedding hair in an updo, think a twisted modern textured chignon, sitting low at the nape of your neck.  After blow drying your hair with a round brush, add some curls and waves to it with a 1" curling iron.  Add some pomade to lock the look and form texture.  Gather your hair loosely into a ponytail at ear level, secure it with an elastic band then twist portions of the loose ends clockwise around the band, tucking, sculpting and pinning it as you wrap it around.

Finally, to add some red carpet glamor and glitz to your wedding hair add some sparking pins, barrettes, a comb or a headband to bring a simple sparkle to your hair.

Choosing the Right Hairstyle for Your Wedding Day

Right Hairstyle for Your Wedding Day

Whatever the occasion might be, the right hairstyle can finish off the look and make you look the very best. This is especially true when it comes to your wedding. Matching your hairstyle with your bridal gown is crucial; the wrong hairstyle can make your entire ensemble look less elegant or take away the focus from your dress. The truth is there is a certain art to picking the appropriate bridal "do", however. For some great ideas, consider the following hairstyles to match even the most unique bespoke wedding gowns.


Elegant Side Bun
Most brides choose to commission bespoke wedding gowns if they want to achieve a specific look. For example, if you choose a strapless gown, it probably means you want to show off your sexy shoulders. For this style, an elegant side bun would perfectly complement your look.

Choosing the Right Hairstyle for Your Wedding DayChoosing the Right Hairstyle for Your Wedding Day

The side bun is both neat and playful. It's simple enough not to take away focus from your face and your gown, but still playful because it's lower and on the side instead of the traditional high bun. Apart from allowing you to show off your toned shoulders, it will also accentuate your facial features. Another plus for the simple side bun is that it is low maintenance. You can basically forget about it for the rest of the night and enjoy the reception without fear of having to redo it every few minutes!

Sophisticated French Pleat
A French Pleat is another classic look that always serves to make a bride look more sophisticated. The hairstyle first became popular back in the 1940s and has remained one of the go-to styles for women who want to pull off a classic, stylish look. For modern themes, the French Pleat works well with bespoke wedding gowns with a halter neck, off the shoulders, asymmetrical neckline, or a high neckline.

One way to personalise the French Pleat is to incorporate curls, a braid, or cute flowers in the up do. It's also perfect for vintage style bridal gowns, if you want to continue its classic styling. Either way, with your hair in this style you will look classy and timeless.

Hair Gloriously Down
If you're the kind of bride who feels more comfortable in a laid back look, you could opt to just let your hair down. Nothing says relaxed and bohemian better than a perfectly blow-dried hair with a flower crown or flower ornaments to complete the look.

This hairstyle goes well with bohemian or Grecian style bespoke wedding gowns. Letting your hair down, either in its natural state or incorporated with curls, allows for more flexibility especially during pictorials. Not only is it low maintenance, you could also easily create different looks instantly by sweep your hair over one side, or have it fall freely down your back. It also looks modern and will go perfectly a garden wedding or a whimsical-themed one.

Finding the Right Wedding Hair Style


Your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life and you want to look your absolute best. Finding just the right wedding hair style to compliment your face, your eyes, and your wedding gown - can be one of the most difficult tasks of preparing for your wedding.

How do you decide what is the right wedding hair style for you? How you decide which style is right for you has a lot to do with personal preference. Secondary considerations would be factors such as is your wedding a daytime wedding, or an evening wedding? Will the wedding and reception take place indoors or out? Are you going to be wearing a headpiece, and if so - what kind?

Generally the guidelines are just that - guidelines. Your choice to follow the wedding hair style guidelines depends on the theme you've chosen for your wedding and how formal or casual you want your wedding to be.

Up styles are suitable for all wedding settings. Wearing your hair up lends an appearance of elegance and sophistication. So if you are having a formal, black tie event then an up style might be a good idea and in some circles it might even be demanded.

Even if your wedding is not an ultra elegant affair. Even if you are having a beach wedding with cookie favors instead of wine favors an up style is still appropriate and will still lend a touch of class to your wedding day.
Wearing your hair half up is suitable for both indoor and outdoor weddings; though the style is used most of the time for daytime weddings - it also works very well for night weddings. This choice has become popular because it combines the flattering and softening features of wearing the hair down without giving up too much of the formal advantage of an up style. Check with your fiance. This hair style is often preferred by guys for that very reason.

Wearing the hair down is gaining in popularity, but if you will be outdoors for any amount of time - it might not be such a good idea. It is a beautiful look and compliments many style of headpieces, but its staying power may not be exactly what you will be looking for. This is the easiest wedding hair style to create, but the hardest to keep looking fresh.

Whatever you choose, your style should reflect you and go a long way in complimenting your gown and headpiece. These are just a few things to keep in mind when deciding on a wedding hair style.

Bridal Hair Trend: Braids

Every bride needs that perfect hairstyle to complete her look. Bridal hairstyles go in and out of fashion just like wedding gowns. Get the scoop on one of the hottest bridal hair trends these days: braids.


What is the appeal of braids? Well, for one thing, they are quite versatile. They can be loose and bohemian or polished and sophisticated. Braids are a great way to add texture to a classic hairdo or to tame long wavy hair on a hot summer day. They work for pretty much any hair texture other than very curly hair. Some of the braided hairstyles are also easy enough that a friend could do them if you will not be using a professional hairstylist for your wedding.


The simplest braid design is to pull back all of the hair into a low loose braid. The trend for this kind of braid is relaxed and beachy, so the hair should be pulled back softly around the face. Allow the natural texture of your hair to be seen, particularly if it is wavy. This look has been sported by celebrities like Nicole Kidman as well as brides, and it tends to look best when the braid is done a bit off center. Play up the bohemian nature of this soft hairstyle with large dangly earrings as part of your crystal bridal jewelry set.


Another gorgeous way to wear braids is as a part of a polished knot. The stylist creates a small braid on either side of the head. Those braids lead into a formal knot style at the back of the head. If you like a more understated look, the knot can be down by the nape of the neck or make more of a statement by placing the knot more in the center back of the head. A crystal and rhinestone spray on a comb will look incredible tucked into the side of this sophisticated hairdo. Choose a comb that complements the details of your crystal bridal jewelry, from delicate to more elaborate.



Yet another variation on a braided wedding hairstyle is to pull the hair back with a slight lift at the crown. Secure into a ponytail. Then take sections of the ponytail and create numerous smaller braids. Those braids are then wrapped into a classic knot style at the back of the head. It gives a great texture to a timeless style and is ideal for almost any wedding, from casual to formal. This hairstyle is particularly well suited to brides who have very long hair, because the stylist will have plenty to work with (and it helps to get all that long hair under control). I must admit to being partial to this bridal hairstyle, because it is how I wore my hair for my wedding!


If you wish to make the braids more of the focus of the hairdo, another take on the current trend is to braid each side of the hair completely, and then wrap the braids around the head. When done towards the crown of the head, it does have a bit of that "Swiss Miss" look, but there is a certain vintage appeal to it. Wrap the braids further back for to get away from the Heidi look. Either way, it is a very angelic and sweet hairstyle for a bride. A scattering of hairpins will complement the wreath-like effect nicely.

Just as beachy waves were a couple of years ago, braids are now the go-to style for brides in the know. The great news is that with so many variations you can create a look that is unique and suits the style of your wedding gown beautifully.
