Match Your Wedding Hairstyle with Your Dress
One of the first steps you can do to find the right hairstyle for your wedding day is to look through numerous hairstyle books. You can take a number of bridal magazines and check out the fun hairstyles. Try to find the styles that will match your individuality and your dress type.
You should think about your hair type. You should select something that will work for the style and the length of your hair. Think about if you have thick or thin hair, long or short and curly or straight.
If you have straight hair and you would like to add some volume and height to it, you need to set it up in curlers the night before. If you want to have your hair straight, you need hair straightner and the right hair gels to help make it smooth and not frizzy.
Think about the weather as well. If it is a hot and humid day, you will need the right gel or hairspray that will make your hair look and feel better against the conditions. You can bring along a hair net or plastic hair bag if the weather is going to be a little wet.
You also need to match your hairstyle with your wedding dress. This is crucial and the two should compliment each other and not making the other look bad. For example, if you plan to wear an off the shoulder dress or any style of dress that has delicate beading on the top, you need to make sure that your dress is up off the material to ensure that everyone sees the great detail work on the dress.
Any low cut dress or strapless is better off with the hair pulled up with some hair falling in places. These places are around the ear or the back of the neck. You can use some soft and sweet curls around your face to soften the look up a little bit. This romantic and elegant look will look fantastic with just about any dress style.
You can always put your hair in the hands of a professional for your wedding day. Make an appointment with a hairstylist that you have confidence in. Spend a few days before the wedding and discover the hairstyle that will look best on your wedding day. The hairstylist will help you make a decision what will look better and you can try a few first before you make your final decision about the hairstyle that you want.
